Last night, went to see Jeff Lynne's ELO at the O2.

Excellent.show,.and the music was spot on. I seriously doubt it ever sounded that good back in 1978, when the band seemed to rule the world.

Oh well, all I need now is for the original 10cc to reform, and do a tour, and I'll be completely made up.

Awesome.

I have seen the current 10CC twice, a year ago, and they are great! I gave Graham Gouldman "thumbs up" from the balcony at the end of their concert, with standing ovations. He saw me from the stage below, and gave me a "thumbs up" in return. Then I responded with a "double thumbs up", using both hands, and he copied that, smiling and happy. A great memory for sure.

This is how they sound in 2018, vocally, they blew me away: It was so perfect, that I couldn't believe what I heard. It was among the most professional performances I have ever seen. These guys KNOW their stuff. And I was thinking for myself; "I am so glad to see this band alive, and at the same time I had a sad feeling inside, knowing that bands like these, singing and playing with heart and soul, hardly comes around in the future. I had tears in my eyes.

Being fair, Jeff Lynne is 71, so the fact he's playing live at all is a big bonus. However, it sounded all too good, and sanitised, if that makes sense, and his set list was identical to every other gig so far on this leg of the tour.

It's great I've eventually got to see him, but if I'm being honest, a Noel Gallagher gig I went to earlier in the year, was much better and more impressive.

As regards Graham Gouldman's 10cc, it's another one of those things, isn't it? Where you really like a particular four piece, and only one of them is now flying the banner. It'd be like John Deacon going out on the road with a band called John Deacon's Queen. No doubt it would still be worth a watch, but......

Lots of costume changes and an appearance by the legendary 'Quay Lewd'. Great show and was lucky enough to meet Fee Waybill and Prairie Prince afterward.

Last night I saw Eric Martin, the singer from Mr. Big, in a small 300 capacity venue and I think it was one of the best gigs I've been to in a very long time.

It was him singing and playing acoustic guitar and a local guy, Dave Cotterill, on guitar and backing vocals and the sound was huge. Most of the set was Mr. Big songs stripped back and it surprised me just how well they worked in that context.

To give you an idea, this video is from an Edinburgh bar a couple of weeks ago:

Accidentally missed out seeing THE PLUMEDORES on 12th September in Elbow's fabled blueprint studios.

Also ended up at the Haters Roast presented by Ross Matthews the other night unexpectedly! Six more drag queens ripping each other to shreds... Love it!
