Re: The saddest day in years: Gary Moore has died

rip to a bona fide guitar icon and one of my all time heroes. I am very sad about this. A true legend and a huge loss to the guitar world, and only 58. Rip gary

Re: USA Get Ready For Spotify!

I can vouch for spotify - use it loads and have a load of stuff on playlist that I dont have on physical media. Yes, the free one suffers a bit with audio quality/time restrictions but for finding an artist for a trial listen or just having on in the background like a programmable radio (albeit with...

Re: Fave musical biopic?

One to add to the list - I've now seen "Sex & Drugs & Rock and Roll" and Andy Serkis (remember him as Gollum in LOTR?) is quite brilliant in the role of Ian Dury. As good, IMO, as Jamie Foxx in "Ray." :D :D :D Vic Oh brilliant. Ive heard rave reviews about it and his performance and been wanting to...

Re: New Years Guitar Goals?

Immediate goal for next week - get Squier Tele fixed. It's been sadly neglected - gathering dust in the attic for ages - since the input socket came out and got misplaced. Said socket has now turned up, so the Squier's going in to the shop next week. Always nice to have another string to one's bow....

Re: Fave musical biopic?

With you on Jamie Foxx playing Ray Charles - it was an incredible portrayal and a great film.

Angela Bassett playing Tina Turner in 'whats love got to do with it' was also very good, as was Laurence Fishburne playing Ike.

Never seen ' walk the line' but must get round to it.
