Christ actually 25 years exactly in three weeks or so. Was first time I saw Daltrey live too.


The John Mayer Trio from it's inception was Mayer, Palladino, and Steve Jordan on drums. Take any one of them out of it, and it ain't the Trio. Mayer has decided that his latest tour will have his own support acts, ie "him", like his 'Where The Light Is' show, where he opens the show as an accoustic set, then the blues Trio support band comes on, before the main show featuring the full band.

Funny how things go around. You know Palladino as The Who's bassist, I know him as John Mayer's bassist from the Continuum period, and the Trio, and then guess who played the famous fretless bass on Paul Young's #1 'Wherever I Lay My Hat'?

The support for the ELO gig in July is The Shires and Tom Chaplin. Should be a cracking night.
Come on you Tigers.

Did he play anything from his upcoming release? If so how was it?

He played about four or five songs that he announced as being from the forthcoming album, plus one that he said he had written for a film that's due out soon.

The show was about two and a half hours, with some Jam and Style Council songs lobbed in there, as well as standards like Wild Wood, Peacock Suit, You Do Something To Me, and the closer, The Changingman. Everything he did was well played and sounded great, and of course Steve Craddock is an excellent guitar player.

Hats off to all the band, actually. Even the support act wasn't that bad.

My favourite Weller album is Live Wood. Not sure if that's still in print but I prefer it over the studio album I have.

The last time I was at that place, it was the late nineties, and a thing that the Queen fan club put on, with the SAS Band, and Brian turned up and did a few songs. As I remember, he did Lap Of The Gods (...Revisited). Not sure that he's ever done the song outside of anything badged up as Queen before, or since.

Right, at the O2, for the first of two John Mayer gigs, on the bounce!

Edit: Just brilliant!

This was his solo to the song 'Changing' on the second night, for anyone who's interested in people who can play a guitar.

Latest couple of gigs I've booked for 2017 are the Michael Casswell tribute at the 100 Club on 21 June, and Dan Reed's acoustic show at St Pancras Church in London in Sept...that gig was only £20, will be intimate at only 150 tickets, and is being filmed and recorded for DVD release...each £20 ticket includes a downloadable Hi-Resolution MP4 video file of the DVD and downloadable digital WAV and MP3 mixes of all the tracks from the DVD. The audio mixes will not be available anywhere else...not too shabby value that!

Maiden tonight in Birmingham. This will be about the seventh time I've seen them and my son's first gig. What a way to start.
