• Always sorry to see people let themselves go...and it does not have to be that way and it leads to severe health consequences. I just said earlier today...ya seen any 80 year old fat people lately?

  • I remember seeing pictures of Lee Kerslake in 2006 or so, around the time of the Living Loud project. I was really concerned about his appearance..not just his weight but his general pallor. Needless to say, I wasn't shocked to read of his departure from Heep in 2007 due to health reasons. Those guys still tour heavily and the physical demands are great.....David Crosby was the butt of a nasty joke in the San Francisco Examiner; something about having been a patient at the Betty Crocker Center.

    Then you see someone like Mick Jagger who is old enough to be the father of most of the people in the audience and yet he is fit as an athlete. I seem to remember reading that David Lee Roth got himself into fighting trim for the last Van Halen tour..if you are going to make yourself 20 feet tall on a Jumbotron you might as well look healthy, right?

  • Last June 26th, Bernie did a tribute gig to Rory Gallagher @ Le Creusot Blues Festival (our home town in Burgundy, center of France).

    Rory was a friend of Bernie and to celebrate Rory's music, Bernie did a few concerts with musicians (David Levy & Richard Newman) who where part of Rory's last line-up.

    You can watch the video of the show here :
