I’ve seen all good people…

Back to the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow to see Anderson Rabin Wakeman (ARW)…

I upgraded my seat from the one in the gods to this much better view…

It was a great show. I surprised myself at how emotional I got when Jon Anderson entered the stage. He really is in great voice and skipped around the stage like someone fifty years younger.

Rick Wakeman is as good as ever. His parts in Awaken were stunning.

Trevor Rabin is a very different kind of player than Steve Howe and it showed in the older songs. The overall sound was excellent though.

Special mention should go the “hired hands” especially bass player Lee Pomeroy who is just amazing. His extended solo during The Fish was spectacular and a wonderful tribute to Chris Squire.

It was a great night and, unlike some fans, I’m very happy to have two bands out playing this music. Another union would be nice though. We can dream.

The pound and dollar are almost equal right now once you add on VAT. Buying music online has become very expensive.

Another birthday comes and goes. The big numbers with zeros on the end are depressing but the ones in between don’t feel so bad.

“The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band.” It’s a famous quote but I didn’t know it was Brian Eno’s.
