A long time coming this..Who's Next was the 'musicial' Pete spoke about 2 years previously.

Apt title..Rog came back and got burnt..he "won't be back".☆

I discovered St.Helens band Gravy Train by pure chance...took a Poco LP back into Selectadisc..and Brian Selby advised me to swap it for summat else.

From good stock was Brian- ex miner too.

The flute was always up high in their mixes.

Most of Physical was recorded on the Stones Mobile ( BMC) Unit( smoke on the water)...or some at Stargroves...1975 all over it.

Oh! yes..way before Michael Schenker on this one

...1971 on the now forgotten Beacon label...Mick Bolton( think?) had the flying V here. Thumbs in jeans top time.

First broadcast in December 1973...help from Gong..Steve Hillage. Stones guitarist and MC of course was Bonzo Dog himself Viv Stanshall.

Two slightly distorted guitars.

For me..not the same band without Calvert..Too Young to have seen them at the Roundhouse..Still racked up 20 plus though!☺

Saw him supporting Hawkwind about 10 years ago.. wasn't much impressed with either...Pyro"s were betterish..didn't have that same 70-80's feel for me..more of a Parody..

Yes i have that opinion HSR..they are getting too old as well. Took my Daughter to a meet & greet night in Dublin to see Rolling Stones..madam was lovin' it...me moaning at the changes in key...jaggers voice has dropped a million octaves..they have stopped using "who killed the Kennedy's" in Sympathy..Tumbling Dice was..as ever knock out..this was the 8th time seeing them. Charlie was a gent though.

Saw The Who..a few years ago...as was ..fab!

Dylan, Stewart and Jagger should quit those big gigs.

Agree about the Who ..Never really rated Daltery until he 'Became' Tommy ..overnight great vocals. Do you have Townsend's 'Who am i'  audiobook ? Excellent listen and narrated by Pete himself.

Was listening to 'Tommy' on the juke box in a pub up Raleigh Street.  After the words "I'm free.....", some wag shouted "I'm four ! "
