It’s only Rock & Roll

A trip into the glittering West End of London of course ended up trawling around the music shops of Denmark St .  Getting trapped in Wunjo Guitars found me trying out- and here’s the list –
‘ 63 Candy Apple and ’55 s/burst strats, snips @ 26k and 20k respectively! a 73 Les Paul de Luxe (my favourite necks) , ’66 J50,  70s J45, a 58 J45, 71 D18 and a ’67 00028. Cor.
Verdict? the 55 Strat had tone for days and the J50 had that resonant bass that vibrates your chest as you play.Yummy.

I got out before I got tempted 🙂

While my guitar gently weeps…

My new SO favourite band the Bros. Landreth have just been touring here. They are stunning. Singer and guitar/ man Joey Landreth is amazing and the whole show blows me away. If you can imagine elements of Derek Trucks/John Hiatt/The Band/Eagles/Bonnie Raitt-you get the picture 😉
I had to go twice for extra rations!
I also sailed down to London’s Bush Hall, a lovely old Victorian chandeliered room, to see Ethan Johns, a talented producer (Tom Jones recent roots excursions) who had a great combo and some West Coas-tish Americana in Neil Young vein. And some nice tunes.
Sad news about Sir George Martin, a true legend whose work will long be remembered.
