hi Brian, yes, bass player was called Brian - affectionately known as Lord Lucan because of his striking similarity to the slippery aristocrat! I remember you were there that year. I went with my dad - who was the 'roadie and guitar-tech' for the weekend. I spent a lot of time at the Wild Turkey sta...
hello, nice to be back - it's been a while. found an old video of me playing with Stonewall Jackson at the Wembley festival - think it was about 1986? I'm sure Mr Ahern will know the exact date! the band were West Coast with the late great Phil Rothwell on drums. I am the callow youth on lead guitar...

Let it go Mark You've apologised, in a round about way, but that wasn't correct what you've just written, but your int...

Sorry you have decided to leave Irene. I can't accept that it's because of that post. I have been banging on about the same thing for years on here. If it is, and you think I went too far, I am sorry, truly. Your leaving the forum would be a negative step for the UK scene; it may, however benefit fr...
