    Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal

    Fifty six years after performing together in a group that went nowhere, The Rising Sons, Taj Majal and Ry Cooder are reunited as a thing. They appeared together on stage once in 2014, the only time together in all those years. They seem pumped in the interview...

    The Dreaded "C" Word

    Despite being careful and being triple vaccinated, my wife and I have come down with Covid - confirmed with rapid antigen tests which have a very low rate of false positive results. Because we are vaccinated and are generally in good health, the situation is neither serious nor...

    Dark Side of the Moon - 40 Years Old Last Month (in 2013)

    My son [erroneously] pointed out to me that Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was 40 years old last month [but it was 40 years old last month in 2013 as willeypicket has pointed out below]. Do I feel [even older] old or what? Pink Floyd seems to have commissioned a series of cover art...

    Guitarist and Bass Player Don't Go Down with the Ship

    Nat King Cole Trio (with Oscar Moore)

    I bought another windup gramophone from a very sweet elderly couple the other day - it is becoming a sickness like with guitars. ;) They called me back a day or so later to ask if I was interested in some records. I went and looked and bought some stuff from them, including a 1953 release of...
