Re: What music are you listening to currently?

One of the great could have, should have, made it bigger bands. Live from the Paradiso, Amsterdam 1979. The audience don't sound too up for it, but the band give it a John Perry who plays that great opening riff on "Another Girl another Planet" often tours Ireland with Martin Stephenson (...

Re: What music are you listening to currently?
