  1. Tom Petty

    Really sad news RIP I never saw him live but I was in the same building whilst he was playing... Many moons ago I went to see Nils Lofgren playing solo at the City Hall in Newcastle, as was my want I eschewed the support act in favour of a couple of pints in the bar downstairs. It wasn't until about a year ago chatting with a mate who had been at the same gig did I learn that Tom Petty was the support act. D'oh! Nowadays I never miss a support act as the lure of beer has diminished over the intervening years.
  2. Trouble at mill

    He's so annoyed that he went home, took a course on computer use, bought a computer, registered an account on here and finally three months later he's here to tell us about it. Welcome to the board. Tory troll.
  3. Last night i watched Jools Holland........... and

    Really? You should have said something
  4. Undercard Yet To Play Glastonbury

    They will have played in 2024. Love a bit of Duckworth Lewis
  5. The site in the sun yesterday!

    Thanks for posting.
  6. A little ramble

    Humbling post. (I appear to have something in my eye, I'll just be a moment)
  7. Glastocam!

    Has Pennards been ploughed? Part of the "recovery process"?
  8. Acts you don't "get"

    Bob Dylan - wrote many a fine song, never sang one.
  9. Old Music Thread

    Those of us who saw Steve Hillage join The Beat may enjoy this Not a Hillage composition but a personal favourite and just look at those flares (and no danger of personal injury, please note). Remember kids, the Turin Shroud is NOT an old Steve Hillage t-shirt
  10. Your favourite bar at Glastonbury?

    In an approximate order 1. Avalon Inn 2. Bimble Inn 3. Cockmill Inn (inappropriately renamed the "Cockwell Inn" by ourselves) Order can shift according to location and mood.
  11. Future headliners

    Everybody say Chic, Chic!
  12. Glen Campbell

    Sad to see his passing, I really only knew his country stuff was a little surprised to see his early "rock 'n' roll" persona on the tellybox this morning. He could rock that guitar when the mood took him. RIP
  13. Trying to put together a coherent plan for next year (never easy). In terms of festivals that appeal to me it'll be (probably two from) Bearded Theory, Green Man, Beautiful Days, Deer Shed and/or Festival No.6. From what I have read Kendal Calling has gone a little too "Leeds/Reading" for my ageing appetites. In the absence of a Glastonbury 18 I reckon some of these will sell out a lot quicker than usually. What does the board reckon? I'm probably going to go for Bearded Theory and Deer Shed and may risk going for "Early Bird" tickets pre line up.
  14. Festival cancelled due to mud

    I'd pay for that. When do tickets go on sale?
  15. BBC Music to run nationwide "Glastonbury replacement" in 2018.

    For the record I do not have a Sky subscription and never have had (and never will)
