    Musical Confessional

    I've saw Mike Oldfield at Knebworth, donkeys years ago, I love Tubular Bells (ahem, to reference an earlier post I can do the whole Viv Stanshall spiel too, I'm such a bloody anorak) anyway, you're right it is do'able, but I reckon he'd need more than just a casual audience. I saw Hannah Peel do Tubular Bells a couple of years ago, was great but few people knew it well, which made it lose something, for me anyway, but I'm snooty.

    Now you're talking 😍 'Cherish' was the first 'LP' I ever owned, aahhh how I loved David Cassidy I even had an iron on transfer on a pillow case. Then he did a full page spread in the News of the World......NAKED😨 I went right off him.....I was 10 and really not quite ready for it.

    Ah but, I make the proper sounds, I don't just sing it.....it's quite special, almost an event, if I do say so myself.

    'Hotel California' is one of my all time favourite songs, I know every word and can sing every note of the guitar lead break. I can't abide Prince, Amy Winehouse was completely overrated, and Bruce Springsteen at Glastonbury made me weep with the pain of dullity. (Made that word up) (Also only stayed for 2.5 songs) (Neil will swear it was 3 songs) 😘

    Well, I always think we were by the tree up from the Pyramid, but looking at that old photo we seem to be quite close to a hedge. Definitely Pyramid field though.

    1981, a very hot year. 1989, a very hot year. 2019, a very hot year.

    no Big Red Tent

    Ah, well, that's been called the Charlie Gillett stage since he died. But yes it is the Radio 3 Charlie Gillett, my mistake I thought you meant the stage n the Arboretum.

    no Big Red Tent

    It's been called the 'Ecotricity' stage for a while now Ian. I'm guessing that it'll still be the Big Red Tent, they'll just move the D&B Soundscape into there and get rid of the tent that was in. They've been playing around with that for a few years too.

    Festival Loves :)

    I've had a love affair with the place for nearly forty years. The crew I used to go with 'back in the day' don't go any more for one reason or another, they've grown out of it, it's too big, 'it's not as good as it used to be' blah blah. They always ask me when I get back every year 'how was it'? And I always say the same as it's always been and completely different. If you've been once and then were led in blindfolded and sat down in the middle you'd know exactly where you were from the sounds and smells, it's the same as it's always been. Trying to explain it to someone whose never been is almost impossible too, they've seen it on telly, the scale of it, the stages, the crowds etc. But trying to explain it's unique nature is just baffling. Some one of this parish once said quite a few years ago now how 'those fields in Avalon shimmer with magic for those few days' and I know exactly what he meant. How do you explain the magic, it's aura, that feeling of being in the right place at the right time. Of course all of this is so easy to say after a year with weather like we've just had. Muddy one's.... maybe I need a little more distance from it to be able to fawn so After pondering this a bit further the actual word he used was 'iridescent'....'iridescent with magic'. Much better than my effort.
  10. When you came and said hello, I made you a sticker but you disappeared, so you did have one. 😘
