Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Memphis, TN, Orpheum Theatre , Nov. 19th 2018

This issue with sound has been rumbling ( see what i did there :wink: ) on for years - at Nottingham in June I said that the first half was spoiled by too much bass and drums to Pete after the show and he joked "What's wrong with that!" but there have been instances throughout the tours wi...

Pat Thomas is the brother of Bren who, together with the legendary Irish folk singer Padraig McElvey, formed a sort of folkrock/punk trio in Sligo in the late 80s. They were never either good or famous !

Re: Bruce Thomas, public interview, LONDON: Dublin Castle WED 3RD OCT, 2018

It turned out to be a really exceptional evening with Bruce ! I arrived in Camden and bagged the only parking space in the entire city of London by forcing a little Hispanic lady off the road and then made my way to the Dublin Castle - which was a real "spit and sawdust" rock'n'roll venue ...

I have been known to do a VERY ropey Charles Aznavour impersonation with cod English accent and awful vibrato and I bellowed along in (mock) tribute to She on the news and my youngest daughter said it sounded more like Elvis than Charles ! :oops:

I'll be there if I can wangle time off work - and that's looking increasingly unlikely :(

Re: Elvis's funniest line or song

On leaving my previous job, my li(n)e manager thought that line was a good quote for my departure - I didn't find it that funny. :shock:
"The long arm of the law slides up the outskirts of town, meanwhile in Clubland, they are ready to pull them down " always brings a smile to my face !
