How to treat the missus

Postby boxerscott » Sat Aug 15, 2015 11:21 pm

If it ain`t for a greasy spoon caff down the Westgate rd. It is the R.A.H. for His Bobness latest visit (50 years since he played there) Can not wait, know it will be to see an old man mumbling.... do not care , just to be there and share again an evening with the worlds greatest minstrel ever.

Hi voice is definitely not at it's best these days, but the man is a living leg-end (is that a foot?) so you've got to go see him.
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

I was there when he palyed Blackbushe and did his encore playing with Eric Clapton. - Unique unrepeatable.

Belated response. The broadsheets gave rave reviews, I was thinking I went to a different concert. The set was cool, BD adorned with a Homburg a very jazzy lighting set and unique moves from BD that Amanda was mimicking (she had had too much on Kensington high street) He never acknowledged his audience or his band but I do not care, I shared an evening with one of the worlds all time minstrels in a fantastic venue.

The man is an arsxhole but his work is outstanding. 8)

Exhuming this old thread since I just saw a video on YouTube made by Rich Hall about Bob Dylan and his fall from greatness, which made me laugh, so I thought I'd share it with you:

I agree that Bob Dylan has a great (the greatest?) catalog of brilliant work. But I'm not sure I'd want to see him now.

We were lucky enough to get tickets from an old friend to see the Rolling Stones earlier in the year. I wasn't expecting much - a 70+ year old man prancing about on the stage, backed by a man who probably doesn't know which day it is (he's actually quite switched on and funny), and a drummer who'd rather be in his slippers, watching the telly (or doing a bit of gentle jaz drumming with some mates) - maybe not...

...But they were absolutely brilliant, beyond all possible expectation. A...maz...ing!

Given the choice though, it's Tom Waits I'd really, really like to see.
