ocarolan: FLEET FOXES live from Sydney Opera House - NOW - https://www.facebook.com/FleetFoxes/videos/vb.24709128407/10155409621683408/?type=3&theater May 29, 2017 10:12:46 GMT
ocarolan: Fleet Foxes finished now - almost 2hours continuous. Nice. May 29, 2017 12:05:33 GMT
Martin: Did they still have your old guitar? :sherlock: May 30, 2017 8:47:35 GMT
ocarolan: Sadly, Robin sold "my" Oberon after using for some time at home and to use for writing etc. When Fleet Foxes went out of sight he went back to Uni for a while - sold off a lot of gear via a Seattle music shop - I spotted an ad they had for the guitar - May 30, 2017 17:45:41 GMT
ocarolan: -and let them know more about it, for which they were thankful. No idea where it is now! May 30, 2017 17:46:11 GMT
Martin: It would be cool to be able to trace it - I wonder if it's ended up somewhere else famous.... :-/ Jun 1, 2017 8:24:27 GMT
Martin: Only 16 weeks now until Halifax - it comes around more quickly the older I get :( Jun 1, 2017 8:25:08 GMT *
ocarolan: ...once you're over the hill, you're bound to go faster, it's downhill all the way... :old: Jun 1, 2017 21:57:38 GMT
Martin: It seems so....just wish I had brakes sometimes :( Jun 2, 2017 15:15:15 GMT
ocarolan: Am I going to be able to watch the QT special tonight with Jezza and Tezza without bursting a blood vessel? Perhaps I should do some guitar noodling whilst it's on to keep me calm(er)..... Jun 2, 2017 19:25:55 GMT
Akquarius: RIP Heiner Dreizehnter. only 57 years old. I guess I'll play my Akquarius a lot this weekend Jun 3, 2017 16:34:07 GMT
Martin: So young too....very sad :( Jun 4, 2017 20:05:48 GMT
walkingdecay: I did my last gig last Friday. Got sick of being booked to play keyboards only. Jun 6, 2017 13:51:53 GMT *
ocarolan: ...at least you did get booked though, Pete! ;) Jun 6, 2017 21:49:22 GMT
walkingdecay: True, but on some gigs I felt as much programmer as musician, and wishing physical harm would befall the guitarist so I could take over was probably not a healthy state of mind. (I didn't really. Well, not entirely seriously.) Jun 7, 2017 9:31:48 GMT *
ocarolan: Hm, yes. Understand! Just think of the free evenings you'll have! :) Jun 7, 2017 11:52:58 GMT
walkingdecay: The Arena:American Epic series is worth catching on iPlayer at the moment. Nice mini-portraits of the likes of The Carter Family and Mississippi John Hurt, though the "origins of steel guitar" story should be taken with a pinch of salt the size of Hawaii. Jun 7, 2017 14:19:41 GMT
