Re: Dave Clark Five vs. Herman's Hermits!

I know they had huge success, but I still dont understand why, because they were not very good. The timing was right for them, because whenever some giants of rock/pop appear, a bandwagon follows...

Re: Dave Clark Five vs. Herman's Hermits!

I always scratch my head when this pair were considered great examples of the British invasion. They were both cheesy pop groups. Hardly in the same league as the great British bands that emerged...

Re: Albums with Great Opening and Closing Tracks

Free - Fire and Water.

Starts with the title track, and closes with the long version of All Right Now. Everything in between is just as good too.

Re: Passings: Ray Thomas of the Moody Blues (1941 - 2018)

I'm sure I saw another thread about this earlier, but it is very sad news. He was a major contributor to The Moodies at their peak, and I'm pleased I was able to see them live then.

Arise Sir Ringo

The UK New Years Honours list has been announced, and Ringo is to be Knighted 20 years after Paul received the award. Great news, and well deserved.

Re: RITCHIE BLACKMORE 'Would Be Willing' To Reunite With DEEP PURPLE

She does a decent version of Child In Time, without the screams though, but Ian cant do that anymore either, so might be worth a go.

Cant see Ritchie being happy with that though.

Re: RITCHIE BLACKMORE 'Would Be Willing' To Reunite With DEEP PURPLE

I thought this was done earlier in the year, and I still cant see Gillan going for it. If I recall neither Paice nor Glover were in favour either.

Re: The Sweet: is it finally time to give them the credit they deserve?

They are still stuck with the glam rock, teenybop image, that isn't really deserved if you listen to their albums. They were much better than that.

Re: RITCHIE BLACKMORE Would Play With DEEP PURPLE Again If Asked

As predicted up above. Seems that Ian Paice and Roger Glover are not in favour either, so this is a non starter.

Re: Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Greatest Album Of All Time Says Little Steven

I think in terms of impact, and influence, he has a point. In terms of songs it's not the greatest ever.
