    Worst Album Covers

    Not sure if this thread is still worst album covers or just hair metal that we have known (and loved?!).

    Ha - I'm secretly impressed that you know this.

    Worst Album Covers

    Scorpions had quite a good run at it though ... 1975 .... 1976 (clean version, still awful) ... 1977 (less awful, but still banned) ... 1979 ... 1980 ... Let's rock!

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Ben Miller Band 2-for-1 on there for Oxford and London - absolute bargain for all your folky/bluesy/bluegrass needs. Excellent on the Avalon in '16 and blew away my Brexit-blues.

    Got any gigs coming up?

    Yeah - the songs were all over the place. I'm old and I like a tune where I have some idea where it's going. However, it was quite enjoyable watching the rhythm section desperately watching him to try and work out where he was going next.

    Got any gigs coming up?

    Blimey - Wednesday must've been a bit shit then. I thought there were flashes of brilliance and the encore run of tunes excellent, but it just seemed too jumpy to me. He seems to suck the musicality out of the tunes. Overall, good but .... and at £55 .... come on now.

    Glastonbury 1998.....memories. 20 years ago this week!

    Lots of rain ....England footie in the pissing rain ....sloppy mud ... Robbie in the sunshine .... more rain .... sleeping with my feet out of the tent as I was unable to remove muddy wellies .... more rain ....Moby and the Chemicals in the dry dance tent .... and after that .... who knows. Just checked the line-up .... still no idea. I should've kept notes. As Russy says up above - sucks getting old. Keep a diary kids!

    1.3 million - does Michael Eavis know something we don't know ?

    Just using my lot as an example .... there were over 20 of us in 2007 and 6 in 2008. All of 'em because of the weather and no longer feeling it gave value for money and wasn't worth the risk. Statistically insignificant, I know, but it's the theory I stick with for 2008.

    Worst Headliner?

    This a good article on the very subject (and Radiohead's set) from last year. http://thequietus.com/articles/22761-radiohead-glastonbury-2017-review
  13. I queued down that same alley in the mid '80s for Iron Maiden (!?). I think we came in on the first train for a 10:00 start and it was all part of the experience. It was great fun for an idiot teenager.
  14. Crikey ... that's one hell of an admission (and I'm not talking about the mother bit).

    Jack White

    Because they're 60-effing quid. However, so I've stumped up and I'll be there.
