Bless you for asking - and bless me, as I just had a five minute sneezing fit. Seasonal allergies have decided to arrive! I am chronically ill (heart failed almost 20 years ago) and am battery operated (pacemaker/defibrillator implant). Although I kept working f/t for 10 years after getting sick, these days my job is looking after the Dachshund and doing the laundry (there is some crossover wi

Mistral Wind, and pretty much the whole Dog & Butterfly album, is musical perfection. Other early albums also fantastic. The 80s stuff was great at the time, and I still get all weepy when Alone or These Dreams hit the airwaves, but overall the song writing was weak. However if it wasn't for that 'reboot' of the band I probably would have never got in to them at all, and would have never h

Let's try this again: The coronaviruses have been known about for many years. A few of them are responsible for giving us colds, something which in some people with underlying health concerns or weakened immune systems can develop into more serious illnesses. This new coronavirus causes mild, cold like symptoms in most people. In some people, with underlying health concerns or weakened immu

I agree 100%. In other words, this new one (which shows no sign of being anything really 'novel') may sadly have the same result. My lack of understanding is specifically - why now? Why this reaction, this time? I'm genuinely puzzled, and if I was a suspicious chap I might even think there's something else going on... May as well ban people from driving ever again, because don't a lot of pe

A statement regarding the impact of Covid-19 on the forthcoming tour. Let's get this right out there: The band are NOT going to cancel the tour. We've been in rehearsal for 3 weeks now. We're all in excellent health. Dennis has been fitting in fantastically and we're looking forward to playing our new material for the first time to as many people as possible. We are contractually obli

I blazed my own trail (musically speaking anyway) out of my hymns/pipes & drums/classical family background. These days one of my brothers gets as far as Dire Straits and Springsteen, but I'm the only one who ever got into the melodic/hard/prog/metal rock genres. I still very much appreciate the music I grew up with, and find it extremely fitting that the #1 song on my day of birth (May 4th,

Magnum (I really DO find some of their recent albums to be as good as the 80s) Kansas (The Prelude Implicit is excellent, and if the new one is as good as the cover art, then it's going to be even better) Wishbone Ash (Coat Of Arms is a week old, and it's great. Is it Argus revisited? No, but it is highly enjoyable)

Interesting/intelligent song titles (& lyrics if available before purchase). It's been many years since I bought any physical music product without at least some indication that I'm not just getting yet another set of crap songs about 'love'. So many times I have picked up a CD/LP, flipped it over, read the song titles, and put it straight back down without a second thought. Also, cover ar

Bowie, Prince... Then I'm a huge Barclay James Harvest fan - a true part of my life's soundtrack. So when Mel and a few years later Woolly passed away, it did kind of feel like a family member had gone. Also Gerry Rafferty :(

First HS song I've tried that I've liked. Haven't tried many TBH. Where should I start? Actually think this sounds like Magnum dialed up 25% :D (And I just went back to the YT video and dropped the playback to 0.75.... Yup, that's pretty close to Magnum)
