I missed this in December for some reason.

Arty McGlynn, guitarist who had a big influence on how the guitar was used in Irish traditional music. He had a dry Ulster wit. Non-trad fans may recall his contributions to some of Van Morrison's stuff.

I remember him being a guest on Good Morning. He was given an item of tudor clothing and asked if he was getting anything from it.......his response "this was worn by a man.....or possibly a woman", nice Derek, well done ?

A conman through and through.

I remember him on Talk Radio about 20 years ago, when a guy phoned in mentioning somebody called Will who lived in Amsterdam.

"I can see a ship!" the conman started off....

"There's water...."

"Canals!"

What a cowboy. And he got everything wrong.

Neil Peart, the best drummer I've ever seen. 

 

I saw nico mcbain when he was with pat travers just a few weeks after seeing rush. Those were perhaps the best two I've seen.

Marty Grebb - not a big name, but someone who worked with big names. Leon Russell, Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Eric Clapton, JJ Cale, Elton John, Muddy Waters, The Band, to name a few.

First gig in the uk.... sheffield city hall 1977. I was there.

Another icon of my youth passes. This getting old lark is quite sad at times.

Almost as sad is remembering when popular bands would play venues like that!

I remember seeing U2 at Salford University Students Union, now their equipment wouldn't fit in there.
