Saturday was the third time I've seen Mick Ralphs and I have to say I've never been that impressed by him.

...You'll have the poor man in tears. :'(

You really are bad company some times Fred. :-*

Ian's segment will appear during the second hour of the show. National Public Radio's World Cafe with host David Dye can be heard on over 200 stations nationwide.

Talking of World Cafe.... I did a show for them earlier this year, debating the merits of Classic Rock versus New Rubbish with somebody or other.  Not sure if it mentions TV... they may have edited that rant out... but if anybody cares, here's the link.  It was rather funny.

Ian Hunter and the Rant Band at the Musician in Leicester last night was AMAZING! Two hours of cracking stuff kicking off with "Once bitten, twice shy" covering Lou Reed's Sweet Jane (with remarkable guitar work by his lead guitarist - FAR better than Mr Ralphs) and ending with All the Way from Memphis.

It was boiling in there - "A whole new meaning to the term "Warm up gig!"". You would never guess he's nearly 71 from his performanxce in the heat.

The encores of Roll Away the Stone, Saturday Gigs and All the Young Dudes (Where Tracie joined her Dad on vocals) were also brilliant.

10/10 - Way better than either of the Mott gigs I caught.

Yes, but was it half as good as Mike Peters Alarm live in York last night?

I'm really into Mike Peters at the moment Fred, so today I'll vote for Mike.

I'm just about to watch his Gathering DVD box set. :)

Mike is many thinks including being quite commercially switched on, but as TV (who actually got to know him) once explained to Klaus (at my kitchen table late one night) Mike is very far from being a tw*t. Teev saw him has someone who is 4 real and has a great deal of time for his fans.

Everyone one day makes a mistake.

Heck even the PM might make one, one day.   

Not for giving is like eating rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.

If it's about Mike's music then we all are free to choose to like what we want. I have to admit that I prefer his late solo period to his recent work. It's all a bit too fast, angry and loud for me in these days of Under Attack, Guerilla Tactics and Direct Action.

Bar the likes of Love, Hope and Strength and Plastic Carrier Bags.

Mott and Hunter wise I'm an Ian Hunter and Rant man over Mott the Hoople. 8)

As I know from last year, Fred does immediately have hearing problems as soon as you mention "The Al*rm" or even "tw*g ju*ce"...  :P  ;D
