I think you confused people with it being a music thread ..

CLASSIC ROCK / ELECTRIC BLUES / ALTERNATIVE

Classic rock .. granite and so on .. might wreck your tyres ..


Electric Blues ... You've got an e-bike, but it's been raining none stop for 2 weeks .... can you be arsed ...

Alternative ... This is where @dobbyhasfriends gets involved with garden jumping or @BAMBAMODA rides around naked on youtube for his 200,000 female and 3 male subscribers.

Gary Moore ..yeah ..Great guitarist
Personally like some of the new " Kids " on the block ..Joe Bonamassa / Gary Clark Jr ..etc ..

Some great new(ish) blues guitarists about. I saw Joe Bonamassa in Manchester a few years ago.

Oli Brown is super - this is a few years old but I love it


Massively underrated Ian Siegal playing at his most sleazy


But you can't beat a bit of cheesy disco .....

Happy Jack ..I also saw Jo Bo a good few years back on his first tour ( I think) in this country ( Sloe Gin ) ..
I also saw Alex Harvey at The Mayfair in Newcastle ..couldnt say that I was a huge fan ..but that gig was immense .
According to Spotify ..my favourite album last year was the Blue Stones " Black Holes "..which is probably about right ..with my most played track being " Rolling With The Punches " ..
worth a listen if you've nowt better to do ..

I like the Blue Stones. They are a cracking band.

2008 I saw Joe at Manchester University. I was doing loads of gigs around that time I hardly go to any these days. We used to have a little blues club near us run in a local Working Mens club. The guy who ran it used to get some great blues bands on and the beer was as cheap as chips - happy days!

Nice guitars - Modern T for me please but another guitar would mean a divorce

One of the last groups I saw live ( supported the Amazons ) were The Mysterines ..Great live and I would have expected them to be huge by now if it weren't for Covid putting a downer on touring

Saw them 3 times as well
Drummer sadly died a year ago
RIP Neil Peart ?

Couple of beauts for you from their earlier , better (in my opinion) prog rock era

La Villa Strangiato and By Tor and the snow dog

Did someone say Blues?

I know that many blues fans really rate Beth Hart ..and she does seem to collaborate with a lot of Blues/ Rock royalty ..but I can't stand her voice ..I think( know) its because of that vibrato..a complete turnoff for me as are Joanne Shaw Taylor's ( gruff) vocals although she is a very talented guitarist ..just seems like they are trying too hard ..

He hasn't made a bad album yet ..would love to think he could tour the UK at some stage ..
Agreed, I remember being astounded when I first discovered his music a few years ago. Some, however is a bit too much R&B for me but still not bad enough for me to skip the track.

also back in the 70`s there was a band called "Rush" , Limelight was another, did
some of there own stuff like "man of colours" (on youtube) these were pub bands.
at that time with a big following.
my number 1 must be a band called " coast" early 70s guitarist" Quinny", and thundering
bassist and vocals "Biff Biford" you all know who that is.
had many a laugh with those two, those were the days.
