When music and lyrics come together to make something just wonderful :)
With my eclectic taste spanning the 50's to the present day, I'm spoilt for choice, so starting way back with The Platters -
The Great Pretender
One of their best
Only You - Though I did love Roy Orbison's version just as much :)
A little smoke in your eye's always a good excuse :)
My Prayer only matched by Roy Orbison but still will opt for this version
one in a million :)
I'm blessed with more than my fair share of those :)
ending with a little Twilight time :) :) :)
Hallo, a new radio station was launched last week, aimed at the "Boomer generation ". It's fabulous, the music ranges from late 50's right through to the noughties. Lots of 60's & 70's played. The DJ's are boomers too...David Hamilton, Nicky Horne and Graham Dene, amongst others have regular shows. It's available on DAB in a few areas, otherwise through their app I am now having to choose between Boom, Scala & Greatest Hits!
Being brought up in the early 60s , I did manage to see a few bands plus others before they went onto famous ladder. Music wise I recall seeing a band at work on a Xmas do, they were then known as Episode Six, but my workplace also saw someone I had spoken to through work getting on stage with them he was Ian Gillan, and they later became Deep Purple... Continuing in the music theme, another band whilst serving in RAF, known as Ambrose Slade which became Slade, we also in the NAAFI had Black Sabbath as well. Although not music related I had the pleasure of being in the same workplace as Pam Ayres, I mainly got to know her and her sister as we attended further education one day a week from work in Oxford.
As someone now in his 6th decade I continue to refuse to grow old gracefully. Having played guitar in rock n' roll band's since being a teenager, my enthusiasm and passion show no sign of diminishing with my band 'the VinylZoo' currently recording their debut album 'Welcome to the Age'. The other three band members are all 55+ and share my eagerness to get our original (not covers) music heard. The Covid pandemic has obviously stymied our progress at this time nevertheless we continue to write and collaborate albeit remotely and hope that when normality returns, we may actually have better material to record. I hope my post generates some interest as I'd love to know who is playing, singing, producing and as long as you believe you are relevant and still have something to say, then age is merely a number, bit like 4/4......
I so wish I had discovered this wonderful singer a lot earlier than I did. She performed with Fairport Convention and was the only guest to appear with Led Zeppelin in 1971.
A troubled soul, she lost her life way too early to a brain haemorrhage. I am of course talking about the late great Sandy Denny.
Her voice is sublime and phrasing superb. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSABfJWqh38 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFnQaFVHdsE&list=RDRSABfJWqh38&index=7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPq5ijmY6wQ&list=RDRSABfJWqh38&index=5
Hi, Just looking for someone to share my love of playing the piano.
People ask what I have been doing during lockdown and I tell them I've been playing the piano but that is usually as far as the conversation goes.. lol.
I guess I am looking for people who would be interested in classical music I play but you don't have to be a musician yourself as long as you have a passion for music.
