......and music is her name

Three cheers Blackadder, I got me a ticket to see Crosby, Stills and Nash at the MEN Arena, Manchester on the 10th July.

Gap filling is still going on in my

I watched them this evening on tv, live from the Glastonbury Festival...fantastic.

OK, like me, they are older, carrying a little extra weight, hair thinning (apart from Nashy, he's just turned silver), - but their voices and musicianship remain as splendid as ever. As David said, 'Stephen writes the rock stuff, Graham writes the anthems and I write the weird shit'. It would be churlish to disagree.

Have a grand Saturday all.......I'm going for a beer.


  1. What a great performance! Those words sure are true. I am jealous, Mick, but happy for you! I'd love to see these guys live but have to settle for recordings.

    I think I came in in the middle of this movie and I don't know about the gap filling, I'll try to catch up and not hold everyone else back.

    I'll share a toast with you then, though I'll be lagging a few hours, and I'll be more likely sipping wine than beer. But we'll each mark the end of a glorious summer day separately but definitely on the same thread. Cheers!

  2. Hi Michael,

    Never really knew CSN (along with 90 per cent of the "pop" world) but hope you have a great time!

  3. WT really liked the group when Young was with them. I'm so envious. Have fun!!

  4. OK, we all want to hear about how this turned out! Let us know! They do have some classics for sure!
