    Made my night :thumbup: The band are on fire both nights and as for Glenn... just superb :thumbup:

    Second night was an outstanding display of musicianship, but I have to say, Night 1, is my favourite by far. Hearing those H/T songs again, did it for me, seems like ages since they've been given an airing, so it was breath of fresh air for me :)

    More of the same please - look forward to the next one :cool1:

    Nothing new to a lot of us, but for some, these tales might be of interest and get you ready for what might be in the book later this year :)

    The results are in and Glenn came in at No.25. I didn't know that U2 were considered a rock band, guess that tells you, all you need to know about Planet Rock and their listeners :eek:

    American Matador, Bonilla’s second Reprise album in 1993, showcased the guitarist’s technical mastery and stylistic versatility. It was mostly instrumental, but Bonilla did make a rare vocal appearance on “Wake the Baby.” Though he recorded with a small ensemble of Troy Luccketta of Tesla and Anastasios “Toss” Panos, Bonilla contributed the bass parts himself. Frank Zappa alumnus Mike Keneally plays organ on a cover of Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” which appears in both vocal and instrumental versions. The former features the distinctive voice of ex-Deep Purple/Trapeze member Glenn Hughes.

    That's a bit of good news, hopefully it'll be remastered too. That one can be a little hard to find these days, so it'll be handy to have it more widely available.

    "Video Killed The Radio Star" - crikey, I'd love to have seen that live, such a shame about the awful video quality above, but look forward to the proper release :cool: Has he ever played it live before, I don't think so?

    Great to hear so many new fans were in attendence :thumbup:
