Jackson Browne

Jackson Browne BARTS Barcelona 2015

Last night my wife and I got a chance to see Jackson Browne live. It was even better than I had hoped, his voice was so good. Perhaps the selection of songs wasn’t the best, there was a lot of stuff in the second set that I could have done without and I missed some of my favourites from the first two albums but still, he had a great band and his singing was just amazing. If you want you can follow me on Instagram.

I love this clip, I have feeling that David Lindley have never bought a guitar himself, just borrowed other peoples guitars until they have forgotten that he has them and they become his.

James Taylor

Tomorrow night Araceli and I are going to see James Taylor live at the Gran Teatre del Liceu here in Barcelona. We are very excited, it’s going to feel like a night at the opera.

Jackson Browne

I’m so excited, last night I found out that both James Taylor and Jackson Browne are coming to Barcelona. My wife and I quickly booked tickets for both of them.

Ian McLagan

Ian McLagan
On of my favourite rock stars, Ian McLagan, past away yesterday. His organ playing was a huge part for me in Small Faces and even more so in The Faces with Ron and Rod. I strongly recommend everyone to read Mac’s book, All The Rage, I enjoyed it way more than both Keith’s and Ron’s biographies.

Chest Fever

Last Saturday Araceli and I had another gig with Chest Fever. We recently bought a Bill Lawrence A-300 pickup so Araceli could play her favourite little Tanglewood Premier TW133 guitar and I fitted my L.R. Baggs M1 in my 1968 Goya Model 163 and was very pleased with the result. You can listen to the whole gig on Youtube.

Song of the day


The best version of this Bruce Springsteen classic can be found on The Band‘s 1993 album Jericho

Daniel Romano

Araceli and I finally got to see Daniel Romano last night. It was my wife’s birthday so it was a pretty good ending to her special day. The gig was great, the sound was good and the band was awesome live. The only let down was perhaps that Daniel Roman wasn’t wearing his awesome cowboy suit, but what can you do on a Tuesday in small venue in the north of Spain after a long European tour. I got a chance to say hi to him after the gig and managed to ask the question that has been nagging me since the first time I heard him. What Gibson model is his awesome sounding acoustic, the one with the Daniel Romano inlays over the freatboard? My guess was a re-issue Gospel and it turned out I was right, it’s a 1995 Gibson Gospel.
