Just watched Pet Shop boys doing some of their set at the park although not a big fan of them, but very good not bad for a 65 and 59 year old. Liked the number with the dancing MR BLOBBYS, did a favourite of mine how am I going to get through with Beverly Night singing the part that the great Dusty Springfield sang, the crowd loved them I see Status Quo have a new guitarist to replace Rick Parfitt think his name is Freddie Edwards (big boots to fill) if they had asked us I am sure Michael or myself would only have been happy to oblige to do the gigs (don't need long hair anymore). Last time I went to see QUO I was part deaf for 2 days but it was worth it . Hoping to see rest of show. Keep Rocking Keep the Faith Never Forgotten RIP RICK.<smiley image="smiley_cool.gif"
I saw the Pet Shop Boys concert at work this week on the red button. Was amazed at the amount of people there. I stopped buying their music about six years ago. They are a very clever duo but I always got the feeling they were stuck in the eighties. Their pinnacle was the Very album. Every track was so clever. Was wondering who the guy was singing with Neil in the all in one silver suit.
Everywhere, wherever you look, manipulation rearing it's head.
Michael , Good Idea problem is now I don't play so well due to my hands sizing up with Arthritis, can still play a twelve bar blues its very frustrating. Who would you recommend for drums and bass? anybody play an instrument on OFTDs?
( Hanway2 could play triangle rock out H

Hi Rod. I might consider singing backing vocals if H2 can master the sitar, I once read somewhere that students of this instrument suffer with bleeding fingers. I'm a guitarist myself and used to play in a few bands, so I can help you out on that score, ha! ha!.
I have always liked the sound of the sitar, must be something to do with my Indian roots, but obviously cannot play the instrument. But I could bash away on it, and just like enough monkeys with typewriters writing the works of Shakespeare, I might occasionally come up with something worth listening to.
Also, are there no fans of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band here?
That's absolutely rotten as regards your arthritis, Rod ☹️ Another guitar playing friend of mine has a similar problem, but rather than stop playing, he started focusing on his slide playing and is now astonishingly good!
My shop is in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. It's a very small shop, but we do well with most of our sales conducted online. In the last week, I've sent three guitars to America and one to New Zealand.
If you're interested, have a look at our website. It's still under construction but will give you an impression of the kind of instruments we stock. www.galleriaguitars.com
Your '63 Strat sounds very interesting! And Yamaha Pacificas are great instruments.
Michael, checked out your website you have some fine looking guitars in there some of which I have not heard of. Might take up your advice and try bottle neck and slide guitar not that I would ever achieve the standard of my favourite player Roy Rogers (no not the cowboy) we could bring in Mel on guitar as well, As we have had no offers for drums or bass I thought we could bring a bit of glamour into the band (that's if we can persuade these two ladies to do it) SHIELA E on drums SUSIE QATRO on bass don't think there is much of a chance but you never know. H2 can sing or play the Bonzo songs.
