Got tickets to Elton John in October, saw him when he was here last, was simply superb, should be awesome.

Glen's country solo music wasn't really my thing but he was an exceptional musician and, of course, a first-call member of the Wrecking Crew. He probably played guitar on many of your favourite records.

Here's some he definitely played on:

And here he is on banjo helping out Leon on Shindig, circa 1965:

And doing his own hilarious rendition of the William Tell Overture:

Finally, here he is taking centre stage in a full production of "Classical Gas", showing off how beautifully he played guitar:

Vale, Glen.

Oh wow I had no idea!

I'll be belting out the first all day, hubby will wonder what he did wrong!! Tom Cruises gift to mankind-allowing adults to belt out tunes with absolutely no music skills whatsoever! (That and one of the best feel good action movies ever!!). Saw the beach boys in 2015, still very good, always loved the monkeys, and I actually watched the whole Overture thing! Very cool! Not really a classical fan, unless The Devil Went Down To Georgia counts! Thanks for sharing, I really had no idea!

And it's gone gone gone gone goooooooooone! Doodedo dedo dedododododo!

Cheers!

After I learnt of my mates death we went to dinner, a really good Greek place in Pattaya and did a mini bar crawl. Ippy was a huge beatles fan and Mc Cartney fan so I i got permission to take over the youtube at a bar for an hour. All was good until after 5 glasses of red plus beer and rum I put on Long and winding road. That was it and water came to my eyes, Then Day in the Life and I was stuffed. Music can have such bitter sweet memories.

When Pants Millane was killed they had the Copeland that night won by Tony Francis. Before they started the count Al Mcalister gave a run down of what had transpired and how Gubby Allan had sorted out what thy needed to do. Then they had a 10 minute tribute to Darren with Bright Eyes as the song behind it. The outpouring of grief was incredible. It still haunts me to this day. Grown men sobbing and women just hysterical. Every time the nmae Millane was read out cheerrs and tears. Sean Millane was great. But I am sure for many it was the saddest song they had heard.

A magnificent historical recording of Bolet playing Scuhmann's Fantasie in C from the archives of a German radio broadcast. Seeing him play this over a quarter of a century later live in Melbourne was one of the greatest experiences of my concert-going life.

Heard this on the radio today.

Only thing wrong with this video is that the female back up singer didn't fully copy the lead singers dress code. Damn. Something in the water in Canada.

Jethro Tull's "Stand Up" album. Possibly among the top 250,000 albums from 1969.

Eg:

And at the risk of creating a very stupid list, here's the Top Ten albums of 1969 in order:

1. In the Court of the Crimson King. Why? Because it has the greatest drumming, the greatest singing, the greatest guitar playing, the greatest woodwind playing, the greatest songwriting and the best cover art of any album, ever recorded. And because it hurls a lance far into the future - nothing that happened in music in the next 20 years that wasn't blues-based would have been possible without these guys. Fripp-MacDonald-Lake-Giles-Sinfield - the greatest pool of talent ever assembled in the same universe. And, unlike many groupings of incredible musicians, this wonderful record is so much more than the sum of its parts. "Cat's foot, iron claw, neurosurgeons scream for more at paranoia's poison door - 21st Century Schizoid Man". Not a bad opening stanza for the song that invented heavy metal. One of the great tragedies of music history is that within about 15 minutes of this being recorded, MacDonald and Giles had run screaming from the building - one eventually started Foreigner (although, to be fair, not until he'd played all those great sax bits that you'll never get out of your head after you listen to Get It On (Bang a Gong) and the rest of Electric Warrior by T-Rex) and the other drummed for Leo Sayer (although, eventually, Bill Bruford sat in Giles' seat for the next 40 years and acquitted himself quite well). Greg Lake joining Emerson, Lake and Palmer made more sense and allowed for Fripp to recruit Boz Burrell (who also ran screaming from the building to join Bad Company) and then the great John Wetton. But this, right here, is the album I would require to survive isolation on a desert island.

2. Liege & Liefe. It has Sandy singing Matty Groves and Crazy Man Michael. Everything else is brilliant but, really, that was enough to get this to number 2 on the list.

3. Let It Bleed. Save for Monkey Man, which is a bit of a throwaway song, this is a killer of an album. Gimme Shelter, Love in Vain (with Ry Cooder's beautiful mandolin), the hilarious acoustic version of Honky Tonk Women (Country Honk), Live With Me (the magical first appearance of Bobby Keys with the Stones - and with both Leon and Nicky playing piano on this, it's session-musician-heaven), Let It Bleed, Midnight Rambler (yes, this is the greatest rock and roll song of all-time), You've Got the Silver and You Can't Always Get What You Want. It's a bit of a pity that the English style of the time was usually to leave singles off albums - If the famous accordion-based version of Honky Tonk Women had been on here, this might have been the best rock album of all time.

4. Arthur. Was there ever a better song than Shangri-La? No, of course there wasn't. Was there ever a better eulogy for a lost age than Victoria? Was there ever a song (at all) that wasn't folkie and covered by The Seekers about English people going to Australia (and, in this case, by choice)? The greatest album by the greatest British pop/rock songwriter of them all.

5. Basket of Light. Once I had a Sweetheart is my favourite song. House Carpenter is my second-favourite song. The rest of the album is merely breathtakingly beautiful. With Bert and John both gone, listening to this is bitter-sweet.

6. Crosby, Stills & Nash. The finest flowering of west-coast folk-rock, before Neil Young tried to ruin them and The Eagles made it their personal mission to turn West Coast "wooden music" into "easy listening".

7. Led Zeppelin. Dazed and Confused. Jimmy's cover of Otis Rush's I Can't Quit You, Good Times, Bad Times, Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You etc. This album had some fine tunes. Enough that I can even forgive Jimmy for stealing Bert's arrangement of "Black Waterside" and pretending it's his. Still, even that set Jimmy up to use Bert's banjo masterclass on Waggoner's Lad and turn it into Bron-y-Aur Stomp on III, so I guess you take the good with the bad.

8. Led Zeppelin II. Whole Lotta Love. Yes, alright - it's a rip-off of Willie Dixon's "You Need Love" and it owes a considerable debt to the Small Faces' cover of that song but, really, Howling Wolf never sounded like this. The riff from Heartbreaker is even better.

9. Santana. How this music emerged fully-formed from the marijuana-haze of the West Coast is one of history's marvels, as is the tone of Carlos' guitar-playing. There was probably never a more unmistakeable sound than the sound of the man's guitar. Evil Ways, Jingo, Persuasion, Soul Sacrifice, Waiting and Savor.

10. Abbey Road - because I'll never get out of this alive if I don't put a Beatles album in the top ten.

Nice list P4S and I have most of those albums.

'69 was a good vintage. Five Leaves Left, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Unhalfbricking, Chicago Transit Authority, What We Did On Our Holidays, With A Little Help From My Friends and so on.

I'll leave you with just one word though......

TOMMY
