Went to the Hall & Oats with Squeeze show the other night. Daryl seemed to take a bit to get going but did good. Squeeze blew everyone away, what a tight band.  :olaf:

Yes!  I'm in a Squeeze fans group on FB, and they've been getting rave reviews for this tour with basically everyone saying the same as you.

I (first and only time) saw Squeeze was their first reunion tour, when I was a junior in HS at the UCBerkeley Greek Theater in 1985.  They played most of the songs off "Singles - 45's and Under" and the hits off the current record "Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti".  I had been to small venue punk rock shows before that, but Squeeze that night was my first big band at a big venue. Mind blowing experience .... but I'm sure the blotter was helping  :whistle:

Lights out for UFO.

That was a helluva run.  How many original members are still out there doing it?

Today was a David Allen Coe day..
Wrenching, whisky and spending time remembering my youth.
  My grandma was good Irish catholic woman. She never approved of my lifestyle.. but she loved me.. that much I know.
At least never got run over by a God damn train...

Man, I'm so stoked to see that people remember UFO :olaf: Saw them 27 times and
caught the last 2 shows in L.A. back in 2019.

Only Phil and Andy from the old guard but it was great to see Neil Carter return to
the fold after Paul Raymond passed.

Still am a huge UFO Head, hence the fascination with V's lol...

Cheers!

Joe

Nice! Now that's a drum riser!

Wish Algy Ward and the guys from Tank would have done something like that on the drums!

Just saw judas priest on their 50th anniversary tour. They killed it! The set list was incredible, Rob's singing was a little rough but still very good. Hell he is 70 years old!

Thank you so much Brother! The Lonnie Mack is a hoot to play (baseball bat neck and all) and the Bigsby is
pretty surfadelic :thumbs:

While the smart kids in the neighborhood had savings accounts, me and my delinquent friends however...

Cheers!
