    Yes it does, still wish they'd put their differences aside and get Don Felder back in the band, him and Joe Walsh playing the solo in Hotel California is timeless, they play so well together.

    um yes. I agree. That's an interesting thought, maybe we should all try to do that.....put our differences aside, eh?;):)

    Wow, how did I miss this comment... Thank you so, so much for your kind words. They really brightened up an otherwise rather rubbish day.

    Speaking of feedback - I got some rather lovely feedback and even a "like" on social media from the band in question... Days before they announced they split up and probably won't play again. What an absolute shame for modern music. Ryan's voice is a dream, especially on their later work. I'd highly recommend everyone checking out Remember The Day and Give Me Infinity by Exit Ten. Masterpieces - both angry and beautiful, mornful and joyous. Such a pleasure to listen to.

    Speaking of bands that are no longer with us... Reuben (a young three peice from Surrey that really influenced my formative years) announced that for the ten year anniversary of their debut, Racecar Is Racecar Backwards, they will be re-releasing the album with a slew of additional demo tracks. Whilst give missed the pre-order, I really wanted to cover one of their more "soft" songs as a tribute to a ten year old album that hasn't aged a day.

    The vocals are all off in terms of volume, but that's mainly because I don't know a darn thing about mixing and mastering. But here's another one of me yelling into a microphone.

    Jack, I'd love to put a little something together with you. I'd be very interested to chat and see what comes of it all.

    Presently I'm listening to this track of Backstreet Boys called 'I Want It That Way' again and again (can't get the melodious tune out of my head). Other favorites are Shakira's Waka Waka, Hey Jude (The Beatles), Hound Dog (Elvis Presley) and Bob Marley's No Woman No Cry.

    My music style is changing as I'm growing up. I used to be mad into electronic music and I still am, but not as much as I used to be in my teenage years. I like this song.

    Logged on computer at 830 this morning to get on Royal Albert Hall website to get tickets for Eric Clapton in May next year. Tells me I'm 5,239 in the queue. Waited 20 mins numbers going down fairly quickly, finally get onto site and guess what? Yep all four dates sold out. No doubt the bloodsucking parasites that are ticket touts will be offering tickets at inflated prices.

    .........................................................................1998


    Despite the "98" version being a crystal clear recording, I think the "77" version is a tad better.
    Mind you, the "77" version's 23 years older, and like a fine bottle of wine it's been
    maturing in the barrel over many years for all the devoted connoisseurs among their fans. :playful:


    Either way, it's a great song if you like their music.

    .........................................................................1977

    I saw Bryan Ferry on BBC 2 on Jules Holland the other night. Sang a new song, he was dressed in a blue suit, looking very dapper indeed and finished the show with Virginia Plain. I thoroughly enjoyed it, not knowing he was on and it brought back so many wonderful teenage memories in the 1970's with Roxy Music, as a then boyfriend gave me the LP, I was so chuffed .:singing: :D
