I'm always up for something different and this certainly impressed me ...



What talent and joy ..... wuu wuu wuu wuu wuu

This is what should be promoted by RTE instead of wasting tax payers money on imported garbage.

Went to see Don Mc Clean last night in Vicar Street,he was brilliant,sang all of his famous songs and some Buddy Holly,Roy Orbison and a couple of Elvis's. He came on at 9pm and was still playing after 11,really good entertainment. He mentioned that this gig was part of a world tour and that he'll be visiting Australia. I'd recommend to Bugrock and Spud to try and get to see him. Going in last night I expected he'd be playing on his own with maybe a pianoman in the background but he had 3 brilliant guitarist,a pianoman and a drummer,they were class. I kept thinking of Grammer and how he would have appreciated these top class musicians. There was a great rapport between Don and the band a sure sign that they were a real team.

Anyone who uses Ticketmaster, check your bank account . Something fishy going on there.

What's happening with Ticketmaster? I've heard many complaints about them over the years.

I have a ticket for Elton this time next year. Hope he's still alive for it. :D


It's all happening this year though. Queen a few months ago, Roger Waters the other night, Queen again in Marley Pk with the Rats + others, then Bruno Mars and........BRITNEY with mah Bitches!!!! Hahaha. :mrgreen: :lol:

Nice one Dancer .... George Bensons version of La Mer was one of my favourite 5 to 2'ers :lol:

As was this .... until I had the misfortune to see this video :oops: blowing bubble gum ? and as for the hand action, I so so glad the dice fell out !



and if that was not bad enough ......



Great songs but as for the videos ..... oh dear :lol:

I'm looking forward to seeing Rodney Crowell this Sunday at the Seamus Ennis centre in Naul .... small venue with about 100 max capacity, a rare treat and one that our old friend Grammer would have loved.

This is one of his latest songs ... an absolute gem



and heres one of my favourites from years ago ...

Steeleye Span are coming to Ireland for Trad Fest - I have not heard this group live since I saw them in
The Pav more years ago than I care to remember. The singer has a voice which I have always found to
be great, a bit like Holly Near or the singer from The Weavers.
They are in St.Patrick's Cathedral on 24th.

Maddy Prior is the singer and yes Sinead ... she is excellent. The band have changed over the years and I'm not sure who is playing with them these days but its bound to be a good show (I'm at John Paul White in Whelans that night).

Here's a little song that I discovered recently and its fast becoming a favourite .....

Regrettably I had to give away my ticket for to-night, some people are coming to me
for dinner and a chat. Didn't know which option to take but decided I might not get
these people together again and I can always hear Steeleye Span on record and CD.
Still nothing beats a live concert. Not to worry, I gave the ticket to a person who
will go and appreciate the concert and knows the group.
Toss, enjoy your gig.

Great idea Sinéad! So many times I have put off get togethers because of this and that then the old pals were no longer around. Now, I get up in the morning and see who ever I can. Thought the live concert is great too.

Toss I love that song played it for HID :D Enjoy the gig. Do you ever stay in??

Tks Sinead, you have your priorities right wuu

I love songs with a bit of a story to them and that one hit home immediately.

As for going out, Santa was very generous at Christmas as we got a huge TV. So much so .... it feels like we live in a cinema :lol: I am amazed at how far advanced the TVs are today, this thing hooks up to every gizmo in the house and collects all sort of data if you let it (you have to go deep into the settings and switch off all the 'apps'). Anyway, I love it for what it does .... if I cant get what I want on TV, I can usually find it on my laptop and play it on the TV using the wifi connection. It has opened up a whole new world and I have to be very careful not to become part of the sofa !!! I'm not ready for that just yet, so out I go :D

Quick review of John Paul White last night ...... what a voice, he is Roy Orbison-esque and can certainly entertain with his quick wit (some loon was screaming in the toilets as he sang and he just kept going till the end, then he apologised for the crap backing singer and said she was getting sacked !). He has some great songs on his next album, the first of which is below and tells how he hates touring as he misses his family so he wrote 'The long way home' as a way of explaining to his kids that daddy will be back ... he's just taking the long way home. All in all, he was very impressive and certainly has a lot of new fans here.



So Roy Orbison here ....

Love the Long Way Home, the other one does nothing for me. I am told I would have been
disappointed with Steeleye Span's performance. It seems they insisted on having their own
sound people and it just didn't work. A building like St. Patrick's Cathedral does not need
and sound equipment, the acoustics there are just fantastic. St. Patrick's was built for
preaching and singing, no need for any enhancement.

As always, Toss introduces me to new and great artists. ;)
Must agree too, with Sinead's view on acoustics.
