Peridot. How can Van fill a void when he caused more voids than the artists I shall now feature.
His walk offs were/are legendary. I thought you first posted a video of Van with Bob Dylan. What was up did he walk off the video?
The Waterboys. I've seen them live. I don't know if other artists are as vain but hide it better but I've never seen anyone on stage as up his own bum as Mike Scott. Toilet brushes by Wisdom or what. Didn't say bum said ar..
ZZ Top. Good to hear proper blues based ZZ Top and not just the pop period. I'm hoping for an outbreak of cheap sunglasses this summer.
Bit Lizzy like insofar some of their recorded stuff sounds flatter than when live.

So I can't conclusively prove it's who I think it is but I think this was done by the man who went absent almost as much as Van Morrison.

Abaco Dream was a new one on me, but very nice indeed. I had to google it to see the history and the rumoured connection to Sly Stone - interesting story.

I haven't experienced Van actually walking off, but I've walked out of some of his gigs. When you realise that he doesn't want to be there, there's little point in staying. He is however responsible for some of the best live performances I have ever witnessed - you just have to take the bad with the good so to speak. He played the Green Man festival near Brecon last year and I wasn't expecting much but he was actually rather good. He arrived by helicopter, walked onto the stage where his band was already playing, did the gig, and walked off straight into the waiting helicopter leaving the band playing him out. He also had specifically written into his contract that he wasn't to be expected to speak to anyone - I kinda like that in a funny sort of way.

I've seen the Waterboys and Mike Scott solo a few times too and would not disagree with your assessment Smile

For B, I'll also go with something less familiar as it comes from one of the most criminally underrated bands ever

No need for any guilt there Helen. I think Karen was easily the greatest female vocalist ever.

Another sad loss - I can't believe it was 30 years ago now.

Guilty pleasures? They don't get any more guilty than this, the subject matter makes me cringe, not the sort of genre I like, is it something about the man's delivery? Well the delivery would revolt many.

Get some of the rest of his catalogue out; a homage to a past time and the sort of gut wrenching tear jerking muck we don't do anymore. The saddest bit being that this isn't mockery or irony, I can always listen to this man. God only knows.

Wound myself up so much to do the last one missed out navver slipping in Focus. I saw Focus two or three years ago at Parr Hall in Warrington. Very small audience of sub 200 but a cracking gig. This van Leer was obviously enjoying himself and not just going through the motions for the cash.

The only guilt in this pleasure is that I don't know enough of his work.

My oh my ... this thread just gets better and better!

Focus I have never had the pleasure of seeing live but love their material. They are one of my 'driving bands'. If I have a long drive to do, I put Focus on and the miles just seem to go by twice as fast.

And the bonus 'F' Dean Friedman. Well all I can say is that when 'Lucky Stars' comes on the car radio and Mrs P. reaches to change the station, I might just be inclined to say "Leave it on, there'll be something better on next" Embarassed So I think it's a guilty secret shared! I have to say that if it wasn't for the song I'll be ending this thread with, I probably wouldn't know who sang 'Lucky Stars' and have never sought out his other material. However Tow Itch, your additional links were interesting and having come out so to speak, I may take the risk of exploring further.

Now 'G' is for God and that's just where you've gone TI - my LastFM page tells me that Rory Gallagher is my most played artist so I guess I do know a fair bit of his work. Another sadly missed and sadly underrated true gentleman. Go to Amazon, search on Rory Gallagher, buy everything that comes up, and you'll be a happy man Laughing

Now on to that 'H' song. Well, given preceding events there is only one thing it can be. I couldn't find another video with decent sound so apologies for this one but enjoy the legendary ...

The Ink Spots. I still want to count in with "You promised me green grass not to tell what you heard"

Half man Half Biscuit I saw them in december 2011 but didn't know the majority of their set still good though. Are we allowed to use them as artists though as Nigel Blackwell's guitar being a copy of an Epiphone Airscreamer surely lists him as a Dandy enemy?
Not worked out yet if he has a copy of an Epiphone Airscreamer or it is a copy of the said guitar.

J and not a guilty secret here as I'd heard a section of the tune used by Whispering Bob Harris on several occasions but never known the tune. So we now have the alphabetical link to The Brothers Johnson the original and desperately tender Shuggie Otis and for a song sampled almost as much as a James Brown horn piece we also have the notorious Color Me BaddShuggie Otis places a landmark guitar piece in the sweetest of songs without detracting from either, a sad loss to drug excess. How could this be written by a 16 year old boy?

Been slow to catch up with this thread - partly because I've been busy exploring the fascinating background to that last post. Crikey - it's one of those songs I have heard so many times but never thought about where it came from. Wonderful story.

For my 'K' I'm heading to Fife, which seems to me to be the centre of creativity in the British Isles, with so many musicians, writers, actors, etc. hailing from that part of the world. I've never visited but am keen to do so, perhaps on one of the raucous festival weekends organised by the Fence Collective - the amazing record label / musician share scheme established by Kenny Anderson ...

I'm now old enough to realise that naughty words are neither big nor clever.
However this was 31 years ago so if you can hear my voice above tens of thousands of others I apologize.
This guy had been the filler between the artists all weekend. He then got the spot before the headline act on Sunday night.

I've been waiting for this. If any of you caught the radio 2 day where they examined the constituent parts of an orchestra then you might have heard this piece.
Simon Mayo got to cover drums and started with this well known piece from the early 60's.

Sandy Nelson Let There Be Drums This piece also featured in an Iconic (It had an academy award nomination) British Transport Film. Most suitable considering the start to the year.

OK I'm sure 90% or more of you know who is singing but for the rest, if you don't play this you will miss a massively famous artist and the best song he ever sang.

Yes I know this is alphabetical artists but I feel a supplementary P coming on in honour of our newest member.

Yes I know it's not the artist nor the title but...........

You do need to watch the Tony Christie video. Think he's decided comedy and pastiche is the way to go.

So come on Tony was your video influenced by The Beastie Boys and Sabotage or what?
