My father was an opera singer, which kinda put me off...

Some great new music around, but mostly I'm stuck in the 70s and 80s, everything from Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, the Eagles, Bruce Springsteen to Abba and all the 80s pop. Hated the New Romantics stuff at the time, especially the fashions in induced, but time has obviously affected my ears, as some of it sounds good now. The fashions are still crap, though!

Some nice Stuff there. Tommy particularly significant. My first date with my wife was to go and see the Premier at Lester Square theatre. Possibly the worst film I've ever seen but the Who still a favourite. Quadrophenia still the best concept album for me. Who's Next or Live at Leeds best straight Album.

Tooks my eyes off the Music Scene when the kids came along but as that coincided with the punk scene it was no great loss for me.

Put together a few sailing videos over the years, purely for my own or club consumption. The soundtracks, while avoiding the more obvious cheesy ones have captured the spirit (I hope).

They call me the breeze - JJ Cale
Keep on Truckin - Hot Tuna (some members of Jefferson Airplane)
Return of the Los Palmas 7 - Madness
Hesitation Blues - Hot Tuna (some members from Jefferson Airplane)
Boat Weirdos - Joe Walsh
Sail on Sailor - Jim Buffet version (OK, that ones a bit cheesy)
Plus a few others.

I was very involved in an amateur operatic society for several years in the late '70s and played guitar for a stage production of Tommy in 1978 Tongue one of the best experiences ever.

Madness, brilliant, seem to have got better with time.

Peter Frampton, always going to suffer from comparison with school/best friend David Bowie, ironically Bowie was to save Framptons career when he invited him to play lead guitar on his 'Glass spider tour' , only discovered Frampton in the weeks after Bowies death, work colleague sent me a link for 'Glass spider tour', searched for him on youtube and found loads of videos.

I was sat outside Cowes in a rescue boat looking after a load of kids in Bosuns. A huge gin palace motored by with loads of girls wearing not very much and someone who looked like Oliver Reed. It was Oliver. They were filming Tommy.

I love music, I count myself so lucky to have lived through the fifties,sixties,seventies,eighties, nineties, and to a lessor extent the noughties and teens now, although there are some new discoverys, like Sheeran and Seasick Steve, they are as nothing to the impact that Chuck Berry, Beatles, Stones, The Who,The Kinks, Led Zepplin, Bolan, Roxy Music, Bowie,Talking Heads, and so many many more that coloured the background to my life. I've got an awesome collection on the iphone, still got a mono Sgt Pepper. I remember where I was in 1968 the very first time that wonderful new invention stereo meant different sounds came out of either speaker..

Couldn't name favorites, love them all, favorite Opera Carmen, also like Bethoven, Bach, Mozart in small doses at the right time and with the correct spirit bottle close to hand.

Also so many memories locked in particular tunes, genres and eras, it doesn't surprise me even dementia patients like a tune.

Music, how could you live without it?

Highlight of my musical 'career' was playing guitar for the Northern Amateur stage premier of Tommy, the musical.

Currently I'm more into acoustic genres, Bluegrass, Folk and, particularly, Gypsy Jazz. Still enjoy playing and listening to the bluesy end of rock though.

Noel went touring with him in the states, down south, said he's never been so fearful of his life, the intense racism they encountered. We never really noticed beyond his incredible talent with a guitar, it was like that in the late sixties and he was God. Must have been a bitch for the yanks finding out God was black.

The white middle classes of the time much prefered their musical icons to at least look caucasian. Hence Elvis getting the title "King of Rock and Roll" when there were a few others with more talent........ Hendrix did break that pattern. Rightly so.

.....aah, memories.

in 72,3,4 as teenagers we used to use a coffee bar called the Fiesta, frequented by budding hippies, college goers and young musicians some of whom achieved a level of success. Joe Brand was a regular. The Police used to drop in occasionally, always disappointed though. The juke box was considered to be one of the best in town.  Ventura Highway, Horse with no Name, Sandman were often chosen, as was Tumbling Dice, Stay with me, Maggie May, Layla (not a bad track on the LP either), Bell Bottom Blues, Rocket Man, Holiday Inn plus many More.

I can almost smell the Patchouli oil and joss sticks.

Going to be slightly controversial, I think 'Cold play" will in time come to be recognised as the most successful band in history.

bold, very bold. That does rather depend on who writes the history.

Who?.........Great Band Wink Quadrophenia my favourite concept album, Who's next best straight album, Live at Leeds Best live album......Rock at it's best IMO 

I had a mate who was in with the local bikers. By a remarkable coincidence he was seeing a much older lady called Maggie (and getting a valuable education me thinks)........The dopey sod was always putting Maggie May on the juke box, everyone else got sick to death of it.....Reason to Believe was on the B side I think.

Some songs or LP's were played to death, everyone had a copy, played countless times at parties. In the end I started to so fed up hearing them. Maggie May, Whiter Shade of Pale, Bridge over troubled water LP, Dark Side of the Moon plus a few others After many decades I came back to some of them because the original appeal finally returned.

Ronnie Woods said that Chuck had told him that he had a choice of two onstage trousers throughout his career. Ronnie and Imelda May are getting close to the "edge" of Mr B with their latest live performances.
