Well this is very encouraging. It seems there's a ripple of sugar magnolia truckin' through the attics of this forum.

Enough already. And as for the dear departed Maurizio?

He's gone, he's gone and he's never ever comin' back.....

I recognise the songs and albums, but I'm no deadhead. The Doors apart, American rock just doesn't really do it for me. The odd song here and there, but mostly it leaves me colder than watching Sarri swap Barkley for Kovacic on 60 minutes (there... that should keep MT happy by vaguely keeping to the topic!)

Yeh, the Doors were the real deal for sure.

No, I like a lot of US stuff....Dead, Dylan, Band, (Canadian really of course), Airplane, Stills, Little Feat etc etc).

As for MT? Wasn't he waxing about Leonard Cohen just the other day?

He was indeed. Music to slash your wrists by.

I like some CS&N stuff, and the various precursors  (Buffalo Springfield, Byrds) and I queued up outside a record store in Pottergate, Norwich at some stupidly early hour in order to buy Dylan at Budokan when at uni but (and I'm in no way being xenophobic here) I just prefer British rock, pop, punk, etc. On the other hand, where the Americans have no peers is in blues, rhythm & blues and soul (Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, BB King, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Bob & Earl, John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke, Al Green, Big Mama Thornton, Percy Sledge, Dinah Washington, etc., etc)

Yep some great stuff you mention there Bob and I worked with my wife of today working on the box office for the Dylan gigs at Earls Court during the Budokan tour. ‘Twas a fine band that to be sure.

She and I had actually met a few weeks earlier working on a Frank Sinatra tour. There's a Crowded House song which begins - “I owe it all to Frank Sinatra”......well so do we.

If you worked at the EC box office, it's very likely that at some point I may have asked you or your wife for my press pass before then going around the side to the stage door to get to the photo pit. Pink Floyd late summer of 1980 was the first time I shot there

That was the Wall right? Yep, we were there for that. I actually escorted Stevie Wonder to his seat on that gig! A really nice fella, absolutely. That was working for Goldsmith of course.

As I work with a lot of our cousins from over the water. 

You cannot knock the likes of Leonard skinner, CCR, blue oyster cult or ZZ tops. 

However I do like confuse our cousins by playing British classics like whistling jack smith, Bonzo dog doo dah band :0)

Indeed it was. Didn't shoot there again for nearly two years as the following summer I was doing my finals (missed out on Dylan), but after that I remember shooting Rod Stewart, Supertramp, Clapton & Waters, Peter Gabriel, Elton John, George Michael, Floyd again (about 3 times?), Genesis, Prince, Def Leppard, Dire Straits and a few others through most of the 80s and 90s. Best days of my life!

I presume you mean Lynyrd Skynyrd? 😉

All good bands you mention, but I couldn't sit down and listen to more than a few songs from each, whereas, for example, I could devour every single Led Zep album from start to finish.
