On the round today a customer who's a big rock and blues fan like me, said after I finished cleaning the windows that he had 2 CDs for me.
Said I can keep them and they are : Joe Satriani and Surfing With The Alien, and Black Stone Cherry and Black To Blues. So looking forward to listening to them later. Can't wait for the charity shops to open again so I can stock up on CDs and vinyl.

Shadow Play is a classic by Rory. Got a great album by him called : Stage Struck with tracks such as Shinkicker,Wayward Child,and Moonchild. Rory Gallagher is a legend !

Listened to the Satriani album. I was waiting to hear him sing wasn't till later realised it was an instrumental album ! Enjoyed it though.

Flying in a blue dream has some vocal tracks and of course some strong guitar work if you come across it
I'm currently reading a latest issue of Classic Rock magazine, special edition called : 100 Most Influential Guitar Heroes. Some great guitarists featured and after reading one article on Gary Moore, I've found out he never rated himself highly at all. He was classed as one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time, and also a blues great too. But he didn't like being called any of that,replying " BB King was a great blues guitarist, not some white guy from Belfast."
Todd Rundgren and Nancy Wilson of Heart are in there too, so a good assortment of guitarists, but they wisely dont name their number one !

I saw Gary Moore for the only time supporting BB King was a double whopper for me as both were excellent and different with a heart of blues - Moore died within a couple of years - The Album Still got the blues is excellent

Gary Moore was an awesome guitarist but the article on him said he wasn't the most friendly person. He fell out with all of Thin Lizzy and if he didn't agree with someone, he'd tell them to fuck off. So if he was still alive he'd be at home on this site ! 😉

I’ve been enjoying The Strokes album The New Abnormal.

But also can’t stop listening to this...

As soon as I came back home from the round today I put on Surfing With The Alien. Love the opening track in fact the whole album is a cracker.

Todays listen is Be Bop Deluxe - Sunburst finish - Bill Nelson's guitar is subtle but sublime - i guess i would describe as Rythm and blues -if you know the singles - Ships in the night - the album material is a lot deeper 2021-04-07 18.16.32-1.jpg
