  1. Correct And a mentor of wilko Johnson. 'Goin' back home' is about him, and I think he helped to write it.
  2. One of my main men. He didn't play on the original version of shakin all over though.
  3. Brilliantly edited and directed by Ron Howard. A fine piece of storytelling. I liked the way he made still photographs 'move' by using tricks like adding 'live' smoke coming from people's cigarettes. The Beatles in terms of live performance paid their dues, and it was interesting to see how all the contributory factors that made them what they became slot into place. It's an often told story, but superbly told by Howard. Epstein sees them, Pete Best replaced by Ringo, George Martin seeing something in them, and the rest becoming history. For once I found myself not cringing when Paul McCartney was talking. They were a far better rocking band than they were given credit for.
  4. You mean you prefer it. I prefer the Johnny Kidd version, and the Pirates own version on the 'out of our soul's album. We all have different preferences.
  5. absolutely these two records were the cornerstones of British rock music. i'd put in 'Please Don't Touch' by Johnny Kidd as well
  6. say what you like, but Cliff was a great rock and roll singer
  7. Sandy Denny wrote it, and sang it when she was in the strawbs. It appeared on Fairport Conventions Unhalfbricking album when she joined them
  8. wonderful, although the last one isn't a cover
  9. maybe not the best, but certainly the creepiest version of this blues classic. I came across it whilst learning it. It starts of ok, but then you see this ominous writing in the top left corner. Then kaboom! Does she know what she's doing?
  10. Did you ever go to Carr's Kegg? I was the singer with the house band.
  11. I don't care if I never eat anything again as long as I live.
