Did i tell you i saw The Black Crows on Sun night and Mon??

Sorry don't normaly bore people to death with my tales of London venue attendances but, i saw The Black Crows on Sun night and on Monday night, and they were awesome, no support, they came on at 7:45pm played through til 9:15 had a 15 min break, and came back on at 9:30 til 11pm, 3hrs of some of the best rock/blues/gospel/soul/blugrass/country ive heard in a long time, we went back on the Monday night and had another 3 hrs, they changed 90% of the set too.

The amount of guitar changes was boggling, i think they needed a lorry just to carry the instruments.
Bass man seemed happy with his G&L jazz looking bass all night.
And they played at Sheppards bush empire too, a 2,000 capacity venue, about 1,200 standing downstairs where we were.
And we got down the front too, 10ft away from the action.
What a memorable 2 nights.

Promise i wont crack on about any other bands.

(Unless i get in to see the Stones at the Astoria!!)

Sounds cool (why does the word cool look really silly when you type it? I blame The Simpsons). I've got a really warped tape of theirs somewhere and I'm sat on Powerplay with an e-credit to spend trying to remember some of the music I wanted to buy, so cheers, I'll stick them on the order.

I just bought a live recording of the Monday night, aparantly, the venue recorded them and the triple CD was available 15 mins after the last number, i actualy bought it from the Crows website when i got home, it gives you the setlist for each night and you just click the night you want.

Good idea eh? never heard of a band doing that before.

That's some quick service. Very nice. A lot of bands, spesh unknowns, could take advantage of doing the same.

Don't mean to sound like an all-knowing git, but that trick's been going a little while now. It doesn't even come from r'n'r. Bespectacled classical concert-goers have been farting into velvet seats for three hours and, before they can pick up their dirty macs and glop over programme pics of Lesley Garrett, burned CDs of the acoustically perfect orchestral jobby are available for sale in the lobby before they leave.

It's a major lifesaver for all those Strad (as opposed to Strat) players that can't survive on lottery money, six-figure grants. And you thought "Arctic Monkeys" were a bit cutting edge? Who'd've thought that hygienically-challenged computer nerds and classical music buffs would've joined forces?
:lol:

alright rub it in :)

Dont you just hate it when somebody KNOWS IT ALL !!
Talk about steal your thunder! :lol:

It's typical, though, isn't it? Black Crowes probably had to buy/hire that kit themselves to offer the CDs. Yodelling, saucepan-titted operattas used a combination of Lottery and Arts Council money (y'know, the stuff that comes from people's salaries) to fund it. No wonder they're ahead of the game.

i think it was the venue rather than the band, and it's always good to see Arts/Lottery funding going into subsidising £1000 seats at the opera.
I suppose its all art.
