    For Christ’s sakes Brown visits Parliament about once a bloody year and even that is too much trouble for her ladyship.

    Perhaps we should not only stop his MP’s wages but also recoup what we’ve been paying him since 2010.

    Why is she there? And what is the value of her opinion; she was a partner in a failed PR firm whose partner was daughter of the unpleasant Hobsbawmn (mate of dodgy lefty Ralph Milliband) who freely choose to marry late in life the most unpleasant man in frontline politics. What is the value or relevance of anything she says?


  13. 18

    Would I want to be able to tell other people I was there?

    Frankly, no.

        Ah! (no not Monika {whatever happened to him? BTW})

        In 1969, I saw Bob Dylan at the Isle of Wight. Three days of concert out in a field. The Who, Free, The Moody Blues, The Band, Joe Cocker, Blodwyn Pig, The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band (yes, still touring with me ‘ol mate Dave Glasson), Pentangle, The Nice, The Pretty Things (brilliant!), Tom Paxton, King Crimson, Family, Ritchie Havens, Julie Felix, Aynsley Dunbar, Edgar Broughton Band, Third Ear Band, Marsha Hunt… who else? Many more. It was great!

        But Dylan was crap frankly. He has always been crap on the stage. He can’t play, he can’t sing for fucking toffee, but he writes a good poem. People treated him like Nelson Mandela, before any of us had heard of Nelson Mandela.

        George Harrison, John Lennon and Ringo Starr, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, Eric Clapton, Pattie Harrison, Yoko Ono, Maureen Starkey, Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Jane Fonda, Françoise Hardy, Roger Vadim, Syd Barrett and Elton John and others were all in the VIP bit which I broke into after dark.

        I would drіve a thousand miles to see about five of them now. The rest are either dead or were overblown.

          White rabbit says:

          You old dog, cat. Fancy mentioning Blodwyn Pig. Instant chemical transportation to another time. And Richie Havens. I cried when he died.


          • Ha! Ha! :-)

            There was a lot of crying to do: Brian Jones, Hendrix, Kossoff, Lennon, Sandy Denny, Lowell George, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gerry Garcia, John Martin. All taken away before their prime. Every loss hurts. It’s as if a piece of your own life has been wrenched away from you.

            At least you were there to see them…

          It’s a bit like the Scum – exposing fraud in football to distract from the fraud in government and the city … and the EU

          btw – That closed down quest investigation by the f-wit plod stevenson – now wasn’t that a convenient thing?

          I was there too SC 22 years old,The Band were fantastic if only the Yardbirds had been there……For Your Love.


          • Not that I disbelieve you but I did not see you there! ;-)

            Robbie Robertson was brilliant! I would rather see him than Dylan TBF.

            Wasn’t it great? Did you see that bloke with the long blonde hair who would take all his clothes off and dance naked? Could have done without that…

            Loads of topless females of the opposite sex (as Ronnie Barker would have it).

            Rickie Farr shouting out F words all the time.

            Got back to the ferry on the last night by climbing in the luggage compartment of a coach. The people I had been next to would have left by helicopter.

            Went to work the next day dressed in a suit and listened to people saying: did you see all those drug crazed people having sex all the time at IOW. I just nodded.

            Clapton was there but he had long left the Yardbirds by then (and John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers). I was in the front row at his Rainbow concert having queued up all night the previous week for tickets.

            We are both privileged to have lived through those times. :-)


          • Sunderland is a Labour ghetto thats why its shyte says:

            I was working in London at the time,BAT hq dean Stanley St,my drugs were Strand I was never alone except for the night they brought old dixie down.


          • Sunderland is a Labour ghetto thats why its shyte says:

            Postscript Cat Page was,is and will always be better than Capton who was made to sound great due to Bruce and Baker.


          • Bloody hell!

            You’re never alone with a Strand. That one?

            I worked for Gallaher for a short while, at that time! Then back into banking having learned how to sell.

            Happy days.


          • Each to our own. Page was a power chord man but did not have Clapton’s versatility (not that I liked all of that, BTW) IMO.

            Beck was the under-acknowledged of the three guitarists.

            Agree that Bruce and Baker were sensational. What can beat this:

            But Clapton opened up a whole new seam in the States with Delaney and Bonnie, The Allmans, Derek and the Dominoes, Steve Stills, Leon Russell, JJ Cale, Muscle Shoals and not forgetting he reminded us of the great Robert Johnson.

            But I don’t wish to detract from Jimmy Page.


          • Sunderland is a Labour ghetto thats why its shyte says:

            Clapton sold out,I saw him in concert with Stevie Winwood in NY a few years back,I had forgotten what a great musician Winwood is,happy days? the best I am glad I was born when I was but enough of this sentimentality!


          • I have that concert and you are right. Winwood can actually play lead guitar without being phased by Clapton playing the rhythm part.

            Having said that, Clapton says that playing Little Wing is a big call and I, for one, am inclined to believe him.

            He, Hendrix, Stills and Harrison all played on each other’s sessions at the time and they all lifted each other to netter heights. The music industry did not want it to happen but the players became more powerful than their labels – for a while.

            Now the industry is back to where we were in the early sixties – even worse. Singers sing songs which they have not written. Most cannot play any instrument. And the listening public have been persuaded that they actually prefer Lo-Fi to Hi-Fi, FFS!

            Brain washing, if ever that was the case.

    Did anyone else see Jon Snow yesterday, practically sucking the cock of some guy who was going to do some ‘praise singing’ or some shit at the funeral.

    Snow got the guy to do some of his special ‘singing’ to the camera over the credits.

    I’m sure the open-neck-shirt lefty tools had fantasised it would sound incredibly poignant and touching, but instead sounded like the sort of thing you can hear being screamed from cells in loony bins up and down the country on a daily basis.

    Regrettably, owing to previous commitments, some of us cannot attend the memorial service and funeral of Mandela. We are constrained to merely hearing the updates on BBC radio.

    There are times one thanks God for the invention of the ‘off’ switch.


    • 165

      In this binary condition, the off switch is also the on switch. It requires human intervention to exercise choice. Yours would be similar to mine, I imagine.

      There is merit in not even pleading a previous commitment, I would suggest.

      There is much to criticise about Mandela. But there is some merit. The problem is that people seem to be magnetically attracted to hyperbole.

    Next time the cabinet and shadow cabinet shall go. With 150 countries, UN,EEC,FIFA,Rock musians,(you name it) gives us our world leaders which gives us two world funerals a week. Yes they will go and show their respects all to be broadcast of BBC1 all day and night.

    Keep listening to Bob Dylan and others of his ilk though, and whilst doing so, try to grasp that their days have long past, and mark my words that we are now seeing some of the adverse consequences of their influence on post war generations, which is what this thread is really all about.

      Why did you not post this against my post? A bit odd lurking down here.

      To your point, you seem to conflate the art and the message too far. I listen to loads of music, classical and rock. Admire thousands of paintings from all schools. Appreciate architecture from nearly all ages.

      I don’t spend my time wondering whether the person who created this stuff was politically aligned to my views or not. Anyone who did that would have rather a stunted existence. It is often, but not necessarily so, that artists incline to the left. If they didn’t, they would be businessmen instead.

      Neither are the works of Plato, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Voltaire and Shaw, to name but a few, diminished in any way because of some muddled notion that their days have long past. Indeed, exactly the opposite is the case.
