    That's not a problem at all. We all start like that. It's just that if someone says they're really into a certain type of music then says their favourite album is Now 18 or Hits 5 etc. I think they should be called out on it. :lol:
  7. VHFC

    VHFC Striker

    Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders FromMars. Classic album. Just been watching documentary on BBC4

  9. Now you may be a good poster, but I'm not feeling those choices.

    Elton John has done so much better than TC.

  14. Aye Glyn Johns produced a cracking album there to try and get Ronnie back on his feet after Passing Show had gone tits up..What a treat folk missed on the town moor in July 74, was one of the thirty odd who went, that was all he got over three nights shame because Anymore for Anymore is a cracking album.Still miss plonker Lane one of the best.

  15. Probably not that many, tastes change,

    But Steve Harley& Cockney Rebel would be one. Four Tops would be another.

    I'm currently listening to These foolish things, the first Bryan Ferry solo album albeit on cd in the car. It's my all time favourite album and also from my youth. I'm now looking for a turntable to hitch to my Yamaha system so I can revive my loft bound vinyl collection. I haven't embraced downloads, I just don't get the concept of paying money for some thing you can't physically hold or see. Give me a cd, a cassette or an album on vinyl, anything but a fucking rip you off download.

    For some reason I remember my sisters (both way older than me) telling me a tale from when they were at school and the Headmaster in assembly was condemning the graffiti in the boys' toilets. Specifically the practice of writing their names on the wall. He finished by saying 'And I want to see Rory Gallagher in my office at break'. :lol:
    A missing scene from Kes, almost. :lol:
