  1. A good day to you, Apologies for the amount of posts. I find it amusing re-reading this input. Gives me an insight into my younger self. Was there a record shop on Cardale Rd? Before my time, but think my Gran my have mentioned it.
  2. Can somebody please explain why I now appear to be to be talking to myself. How assumptive.. Please pull my posts,
  3. I also saw Zeppelin at Knebworth, there was two shows, also Stones in '76, and Deep Purple in 1985.
  4. I did my best, but gave up.. DJ, When was the last time you posted in a thread over 2 years old without being prompted?
  5. This site, needs to exploit it's strengths eg.. unique, The name should say it all. If potential new member's didn't have to wade through 'social media waffle' which, in general, they are bombarded with elsewhere.. They may feel more of a SPECIAL connection, it's simple marketing..
  6. Quite a few of the 'older' blues players Oz. The two that immediately come to mind are Albert King and Otis Rush. On a modern theme, the Amazing Eric Gales, still have tickets to see him, now over a year old!!
  7. Less than one new contributer every 8 months?
  8. Without even counting the sub-headings there are at least 55 topics specifically about Nottingham or some aspect of it. Paste hasn't worked, this is in reply to Brew, i joined 2 years ago, how many new members, made over ten posts in this time? I'd guess under 5, if you bin, drop one, keep one. I wasn't schooled in Nott's & have never worked there, I found Ian123 contribution's superb. I have been in forums, since the newsgroup days, mid nineties, I have never known people criticised for too much content, normally, they are thanked, for their hard work!
  9. Gonna' read some wiki, Then I'll Dust My Room, Where do you find this stuff? Lonnie Johnston, Robert Johnson, Son House?
  10. Jill, you say, musical ability tends to run in families, the best impression I get, you are talking genetics? Iv'e read many a autobiography, and exposure and opportunity appear to dismiss that theory.. Gaining an influence or teacher at an early age, when practice would be less of a chore appears crucial! Only instrument at my school was a recorder! Did have some piano lessons, payed for by Gran when about 7. Actually proved useful!
  11. Made a reference to a nearby 'fever" Hospital twice...zero responce...oh well.
  12. ??..I can only assume you had a one on one with his Bob? was it in a helicopter? Thanks for the inspiration.. On a Dylan phase.Nashville Skyline and Wesley Harding at the mo!
  13. I will look into this, Grandads first prosection, was 1892 aged seven for pitch & toss. Lived in the area of the bus station off Manvers St, a world away from.the Promenade!
  14. Welcome Dawn, I recall a couple of Nott's females called Dawn, love to hear more about your blues rock memories! What pub''s & bands do you recall? Where did your Grandmother live?
