Quote2000 LYFH Good news they are still at it. Time to get Jorma, Jack and Grace back in and do a Airplane tour! What are Jorma and Jack doing these days - still playing as Hot Tuna? No chance of Grace ever appearing onstage again - she is happy in her retirement. David Freiberg still has a great voice. Andy

Most of the singing is done by Cathy Richardson who is superp. David Freiberg did a few solo spots - Harp Tree Lament, Fresh Air (the QMS song),Jane & space Oddity. Paul Kantner sings a lot of harmony and the occasional verse. andy

Amidst all of the hype and panic over Stones tickets it is always reassuring to know that there are still great bands touring for £15 a ticket. Saw Jefferson Starship last night at Chatham Central Hall of all places. Kantner, Freiberg and co put on a great show. Plenty of hits and a few interesting delves into the back catalogue (Lather). They also played some unusual covers - Dark Side of the M

Quotemarcovandereijk Quotenashville Yes I have the bootleg DVD - pretty good. Is that the show where Townsend has about 5 identical looking boldly numbered guitars. Always confused me that. I kind of thought those numbered gold top Les Pauls were indicating different tunings, but I am not knowledgeable enough to shed more light on the subject. Does anyone know? Yes they must be different

I saw PIl at their Rochester Castle gig last weekend and very good they were too. John was on good form and seemed to be in a very jolly mood - good banter with the audience. The Wedding Present were pretty impressive support as well. andy

A lot of pundits really fancy Bradley Wiggins to win this year but I'm not so sure. Cadel Evans might just be too strong in the Mountains. The Sky team is a good one though and they should really give Wiggins his best chance ever this year. Andy

QuoteHis Majesty I haven't listened to Quadrophenia in a long time, but from first listen to the last it's always struck me as being the most emotionally charged, original, complete, fully realised album by a rock band. Music for the mind, heart and body. Forever Changes by Love has that same effect upon me. Andy

It is a great album but I don't think that it is necessarily better than the Stones at their very best. Certainly full of emotion and I suppose that is what you get from someone like Townsend who is basically the sole writer of the Who material and a pretty intense character. The Stones could never have come up with anything like Quadrophenia but then they don't write like that. Similar

Did anyone else watch the recent documentary about the Who Quadrophenia album recently. Mostly Townsend talking about how the album came to be and the recording , live performances etc. Some contributions from Daltrey and Moon, Entwistle (archive for the last two). Interesting dynamic within the group and their fraught relationships make the Stones look like a bunch of vicars. I really like To

Sky Arts 1 UK tonight at 9pm. I have been enjoying this series so far. Not a huge metal fan myself but some interesting interviews , clips etc. Tonight is about UK early metal so expect lots of Sabbbath, Deep Purple, Judas Priest etc. Some great film of the MC5 last night - now there's a band i would really have liked to have witnessed in all of their glory. Anyone from Detroit ever se

Possibly the way to go is for the bands themselves (assuming they exist) to just load all of these gigs up on their own website for fans to access for free. Isn't that what the Grateful Dead do? Bands that no longer exist are a problem i suppose because who actually "owns" the material. andy

Well in the late 60's Mick used to introduce just Charlie and he would tell the audience the title of the next song. Funnily enough Charlie sometimes got it wrong - it's on one of those early Paris or Hawaii boots I think. andy

A stall at my local record fair regularly has all of the Crossfire Hurricane boot CD soundboard releases from these 1981 shows. I usually pick up 2 or 3 each time I visit. Really enjoying listening to them and he only charges £5 for each. andy

I was browsing iTunes last night (UK version) and came accross the 50 CD set called The Decca Sound. This CD collection retails at about £100 in the shops. iTunes have it for only £7.99 - it must be an error but I downloaded it anyway and i was only charged £7.99 according to my billing file. Suggest classical fans grab it now before the mistake is realised. Be warned if you have a slow conn

Lemmy seemed to be addicted to fruit machines, pinball etc. Used to see him quite often in a pub down the Portobello Road in the early 80's. Always on the pinball. Never plucked up the courage to speak to him though, sort of got the impression he wanted to be left alone, god forbid if i caused him to tilt. andy

Great actor and obviously best known for MASH and Dragnet but he does crop up quite regularly in 40's and 50's movies sometimes playing quite nasty villains, gangsters, sidekicks etc. A real quality actor who could seemingly play any type of role. andy

There are a few big star musicians who do seriously follow their local clubs, Robert Plant springs to mind as he is a passionate Wolves supporter. Sadly a lot of the rest just go along to the big clubs to be seen and photographed. The ones that support the less well known and glamorous clubs are usually the proper celebrity football fans. Andy

They always drop the ball on these reissues in my opinion. Ya Yas was a great opportunity to release a full 1969 concert in the correct running order etc but no they didn't do that. Exile reissue was a pile of crap soundwise. What really annoys me is that the most important release of the last few years is actually the Brussels 1973 show but they only issue that in crappy mp3 or Flac. Thi

Look no further than Van Der Graaf Generator - an awesome band with one of the best songwriters ever in Peter Hammill. Their material still sounds interesting today. Still going as a 3 piece too. Never really saw Jethro Tull as prog rock to be honest apart perhaps from a couple of albums such as the great Thick As A Brick and then the turgid Passion Play. A bit like calling the Stones a psych

Yes Stephen Fry did a lot of the talking but he is a natural raconteur. He was very open about his troubled youth, time spent in prison, celibacy, gayness etc. Talking about these things seems to help him overcome his problems but Bill seems to bottle a lot up inside himself although he seemed contented enough.

Did anyone see Bill and Stephen Fry on Sky Arts last night in conversation. The idea behind the show is that 2 people from different walks of life talk candidly about themselves. Bill did not give much away. Talked about his poor upbringing in south London. Early meeting with Mick, Keith & Brian. He claims to have invented the fretless bass when he modified an existing bass back in 1960 or
