Seriously Off Topic!
« on: February 12, 2015, 07:37:40 PM »
Chuffed.

Leaving for Rye tomorrow, practice, staying overnight then gig in Queen's Head on Sat evening. Depping for Steeleye Span's drummer, who also did 3 albums and singles with Gerry Rafferty, including "Baker Street". The Bassist works with Van Morrison and others. Punching way above my weight, on best behaviour and learning 25 songs!

You will do fine Marcus. How can you mess up  "All around my hat"?

But they must all be seventy years old! You will probably be the youngest and sharpest musician there. Worry not!

ps. IF you have worked out how the drum intro goes in Eagles Taking it easy, can you teach our drummer how its done! ;D

I'll have a listen after the gig, right now my brain is bursting trying to remember as much as possible of an unfamiliar set!

Bassist also plays with Paul Brady and US blues singer/guitarist Bonnie Raitt. Might not be all that well-known names, but take my word, if you work with them, you have to know your onions!

I think she is great. She does a brilliant version of Dylans "Its all over now baby blue"

Drums all loaded into the trusty old Suzuki Wagon, still plenty of room for Guitar Operator, guitar, amps, mics etc. :





Open to all Bob, pretty sure it's free, but if I get a chance this evening or tomorrow morning I'll confirm here.

Dear Marcus

Just searched the internet for reference about your gig and nothing. They are either keeping it very quiet or have I got the wrong Queens Head in Rye?

What is the name of the band?

and what time are you on?
