The O2, London
Some Afterworders and every musician in London, by the look of my Twitter timeline.
It made me think..
This was one of my favourite gigs I have ever been to at The O2. I know not everyone heard as good sound as I did – I can only think that the sound engineer mixed it for the back of the Hall – but it was the best I’ve ever had there. Two bands who have meant so much to me, for more than 45 years, playing THOSE songs, I was in heaven. And the level of musicianship…..oh my. I have wanted to see Keith Carlock play for years and he did not disappoint. It occurs to me that I have seen two of my favourite live drummers within four weeks, Big Big Train’s Nick d’Virgillio and Steely Dan’s Keith Carlock. The late, great Jeff Porcaro played on many of those original Steely Dan songs. Jeff would have been standing in the wings, applauding Carlock’s brilliant playing.
