If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

hmmm, not bad.... worth a peek at some of that. Unfortunately it'll be on catch-up, as I'm going to go see Brian Setzer's rockabilly riot tonight at my local venue....  2 drummers, 2 double bassists and the man with a whole host of nice Gretsches.
Three is the magic number. Yes it is. It's the magic number!

Much more appealing than the last few weeks have been.  Doubt I'll watch all of it but the first two are definitely going to be viewed.

Ray Davis is a very underrated writer just as The Kinks where a underrated band at the time , they could go out and really ROCK compared to some of the sh*t that was around in the late 60s and early 70s even if a certain  Mr J Page laid down some of the riffs in the studio for them . So I will be warming the valves up in the old television .

Oh no...... him! the 'B' word...  I've quite honestly never hated a stranger as much as that man. Just my opinion of course, but he's a disgrace of an individual, it quite literally makes me wound up and angry to even talk about him, haha.  I truly truly can't stand the man, I can't listen to U2 because of him, I'd rather have no telly at all than a telly he was on. I even point blank refuse to play any U2 songs if folk ask me if I know any. Yopu may have gathered I feel quite strongly about this  :roll:

I'll maybe give the Elbow gig a bash though
