Sounds a good read Mike - is there an accompannying book on his wall of vox AC 30 amps?!

Re PF the latest album sounds lazy, they just cobbled together songs in the style of their previous stuff...

Some good prog news, probably of interest just to Bill and Checkie-

- a second album anywhere near the quality of the first one would be great! Fingers crossed. 8-)

Neat body-swerve from Micky-Bullfrog there. That long time fan of anything Collins who first brought Dimensionaut into the workshop and said, 'listen to this, lads, it's brilliant!'

I'm not laughing at him, that would be cheap, but I couldn't help but be tickled by the idea that "The Edge" didn't see
"The Edge of the Stage" and fell off.

Pink Floyd's David Gilmour has released the first single/title track of his forthcoming new solo album, and I have to say, I think it's pretty woeful...



Apparently the little riff at the start/throughout is based on an announcement jingle used in French railway stations. Rock and roll... :roll:

I am a huge PF and DG fan but this doesn't do it for me either. The guitar breaks show he retains his legendary "Stratocaster craft", but the track as a whole is uninspiring and in my view, dull. He needs to team up with a good songwriter. Maybe Roger Waters ..... ;-)

The book about Brian May's guitar also sounds a good read. If memory serves, part of a bicycle seat ended up being used as the tremolo arm (?). Certainly an iconic instrument!
With the exception of "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" (on which a Telecaster is used). Brian May's homemade guitar has appeared on all of Queen's hits. Built by Brian & his father when Brian was 16 it includes the following in it's manufacture. Mahogany fireplace used on the neck. Oak scratchplate & fret. Mother of pearl buttons used as fret markers. Motorbike engine parts for the tremolo mechanism. 3 Burns "tri-sonic" pickups. All this & more for the total of £8!!
