Happy Birthday Keith Moon

Posted by Fran on Aug 28, 2012 in Frank's Snaps

He would have been 66 last Thursday (23rd).

Sounds obvious, but news of poor auld Keiths demise has still to filter through to come circles (see Olympics Organizers Ask Keith Moon to Play Closing Ceremony)

Left Right & Centre with Frank Meade – 02/08/2012

Posted by admin on Aug 6, 2012 in Free mp3

So Ed mentions casually that a friend of his is dropping in and that he’s a great sax and harmonica player. Of course it being Ed’s usual understated style, we didn’t expect the treat we were in store for.

Frank Meade squeezed himself in the middle of the  stage and we had a Guinness record for the smallest area you could shoehorn a five price band into.

Thanks Frank, and drop in any time (please)! Read more…

Classic Buddy Rich on the Muppet Show

Posted by admin on Nov 17, 2011 in Frank's Snaps

An oldie but a great one… again courtesy of Mojo Magazine… Buddy Rich plays the Muppet Show.

From Muppet Wiki:

Buddy Rich: “The thing that’s good about it is; I felt like a Muppet myself; I was like a kid, playing with those guys, because that’s how they made me feel. Then, of course, the battle at the end with Animal; to play opposite Ronnie Verrell—one of my all-time favorite drummers, along with Kenny Clare—was a total gas to me. That one week will go down as one of the most positive weeks in my career. I loved it—and I thank them.”
