Yeah I knew you'd show up pretty sharpish! Hey, I'm still looking forward to meeting you at some Neal Morse related show one day! We both have great taste in music that intersects at some points :)

The only answer to this question for me is Tony Clarkin. No one else can hold a night light to his body of work.

I see your 6 CDs and raise you 25 cassettes! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-25-Classic-80s-Rock-Cassettes-The-Who-Sting-Pink-Floyd-Judas-Priest/353211804292 Strangely enough, including a copy of Who's Next. Apart from 3 of the 25 needing their pressure pads replaced, this lot is in excellent shape. I've already enjoyed the following: The Alan Parsons Project ‎– Tales Of Mystery A

Not one song as such, but I have a few go-to albums that I sometimes just 'have' to listen to: Runrig - Cutter & the Clan Van Morrison - Avalon Sunset The Adventures - Sea Of Love Gerry Rafferty - North & South Magnum - Wings Of Heaven, and more recently The Visitation... ...which has the one song that in recent years I find speaks to me more than any other: The Last Frontier

I'm pretty sure my most played album is: Wings Of Heaven - Magnum If not, then it will be one of these: On A Storyteller's Night - Magnum Time Honoured Ghosts - Barclay James Harvest Sea Of Love - The Adventures Cutter & The Clan - Runrig Diesel & Dust - Midnight Oil Wide Awake In Dreamland - Pat Benatar Magnum are by far my most played band overall.

Someone has already mentioned my favorite songwriter. Here are some of the many wonderful (to me anyway) lyrics from this one mind... QuoteThe wind blows cruel and hostile On that deserted land No shepherd sacrifice the lamb While prayers of guilt and duty Race upwards to the sky Collide in fearsome combat cry The guns and the ships and the planes Of every country For the wins and th

I have a small collection of print advertising for some favorite artists. Apart from that, a couple of t-shirts, some article clippings, and that's about it. Our small apartment is full of artwork of all sorts. I find it helps me remember who I am, which as I get older isn't always as easy as it should be!

Magnum & Barclay James Harvest - the two bands that have had most impact on my life, both discovered by me when I was 16 in 1988. Within a few months of hearing Magnum on TOTP for the first time I started college in Edinburgh, and my username on the network was MAGNUMANIAC :D I'm not the coolest vegetable in the fridge, that's for sure! But I'm OK with that.

Magnum - Rock Art (even this contains the absolute classic Clarkin song 'On Christmas Day', but overall the album simply doesn't do anything for me) Barclay James Harvest - Turn Of The Tide (sterile Euro-pop with few if any redeeming moments) Kansas - Always Never The Same (Kansas plus the LSO should be amazing. It's merely OK)

Gotcha. I think they do certainly find the whole festival thing a bit tricky these days. They always seem to go down well at Sweden Rock, but it's hard for them to fit in easily with smaller festival lineups. I first saw them in December 1988 when I was 16, and most recently in July 2016 when I wasn't 16 :) A very different experience, but I still really enjoyed it after Bob got warmed up a bi

OK now I have my list. These are the 30 bands/artists that come to my mind most strongly when I think about my musical loves over the last 32 years - since I saw Magnum on Top Of The Pops the day after my 16th birthday!

Alongside Ann Wilson, Pat is easily my favorite female singer. Saw her with hubby Neil (Giraldo) and band a few years ago, and although it was an expensive ticket and they play a short show these days it was still worth every cent. Ever since I first heard her Wide Awake In Dreamland album in '88 I have been a huge fan.

Well, this will come as no surprise to anyone who's seen my contributions to this forum. I'm picking a Magnum song! Question is - which one? Certainly not the one that made it to #99 on that very strange list. That particular Magnum song is one of my LEAST favorite of this (or any other) century. So, what's my choice? The Last Frontier Perhaps the most gorgeous, evocative song ever writt
