I have been a ‘fan” off and on for the last 30 years.
Seen them live a couple of times and really enjoyed sone albums – especially Keep the Faith and Slippery When Wet.
Anyone else want to confess?
As I was at the reception desk of an old and faded hotel in Harrogate yesterday enquiring after the exit code for the car park I was told it was 2112.
I looked across at my colleague who smiled knowingly.
“That will be easy for me to remember “he confirmed. I said no more.
As we left I asked about his love of Rush.
“Who are they?” was his response.
After a few awkward moments it was apparent he was born on the 21st December!
Probably not a great example.
But what do they do…
Here you go son…
A starter, meal and sticky rice for £10.95.
No need for a rider there then!
I searched on previous posts on here but the only one that came back with any reference to it was one about Suede from our dearly departed Mr James Blast.
The Icicle Works were fantastic and most of his solo work has been excellent as well.
Any other fans here?
Liverpool Girl…top tune.
31 year since their debut album was released.
I feel old!!!
I thought some of my previous workplaces were bizarre but this is comedy gold.
Two previous series are available on Youtube (I guess).
2012 the Olympics pre-cursor is also essential viewing.
Long live the BBC!
Back in the day I had couple of rare vinyl albums that I sold in the early 2000s for a nice profit.
Does this market still exist for vinyl or CDs?
I have nothing to sell but am just curious.
Classic Rock has listed the top 100 guitar riffs as voted for by over 30,000 people worldwide to mark World Guitar Day.
The list is in the comments section.
Feel free to disagree with the 30,000 people!
Zodiac Mindwarp led the way and was the inspiration for Appetite For Destruction…no really…
A new album out this week and it is rather good.
I was a big fan back in the day and the new album has made me go back and rediscover how good they were.
Poor Misguided Fool was always my favourite tune.
An hour or so of your life you will remember if you remember them.
The TMS team seem to be struggling with their culinary experiences during the break.
The teams seem totally unmatched based on the two sessions completed so far. 3-0 will follow (weather permitting).
So we head into the next Ashes tour without a stable batting line-up up top.
5-0 to the Aussies?
We need more New Model Army!
I have an aol.com account and when I view it on my iPhone the account name that appears in the recipient name is not mine yet when I send an email it is still correct and checking the aol account details show is it is fine.
Everything seems normal on my MacBook Pro.
Any tech guys on here have an idea what has happened?
The other half is attending a wedding in Kilmarnock a week on Sunday and I will be looking after the kids.
We thought it would be good to combine both events with a short holiday in the area. I know nothing about this part of Scotland so any recommendations gratefully received. My kids are aged 6 and 8.
Clearly not XTC!
I am talking secondary school age i. e 11+.
I turned up in the Autumn of 1976 as a supposedly bright kid to a Grammar School in Norfolk. The punk wars had yet to reach us and to be honest never did. At this point in my musical life at was all TOTP Thursday night fandom with a particular love of ABBA.
As the punk years evolved outside of my frame of reference I was swept along with the pop of the day and on my 13th birthday in 1978 I was gifted a cassette tape player and a voucher that would enable me to buy two cassettes. I bought Parallel Lines by Blondie and Out of the Blue by ELO. My clearly exquisite taste in rock/pop was born on that day!
As the years developed in school I became known as the pop chart nerd who could tell you what number your favourite band was that week and developed friendships with similar musical focused chaps. Then in 1979 I saw Motorhead perform Bomber on TOTP and shortly after my best friend bought Metal Rendezvous by Krokus as he has just got a record player. Thus began a long lost » Continue Reading.
