especially Tim Burgess when he sang “you say you don’t love me”.


One of my absolute favourite Pete Shelley songs.

James/Eno "Wah Wah" and (since they're on at Cropredy this year and I thought I'd better get to know at least some of their stuff!) the Waterboys' "Fisherman's Blues". £1.50 each.

The whole evening was primarily for Pete Shelley and the Buzzcocks set was compered by Paul Morley and began with a message on the big screen from Howard Devoto. Then the original members of the band did few songs followed by guest vocalists including Captain Sensible, Dave Vanian, Peter Perrett, Thurston Moore, Pauline Murray, Richard Jobson and Tim Burgess. It was great if a little disjointed but so so glad I was there! The evening ended with an appearance from Pete’s wife and I left the hall hoarse from singing along and, for the first time in many years, my ears were ringing.


I'm glad Peter Perrett was there - he's got the right style of voice for Pete's songs.  I'm very disappointed that Howard Devoto didn't make it in person though.

Yes all Howard Devoto provided was a few words in front of some still photos. I thought all the guest vocalists were excellent especially Tim Burgess when he sang “you say you don’t love me”. Mind you I was mightily impressed by Dave Vanian. Peter Perrett seemed to be in his usual state of not really knowing where he was!

The Eagles at Wembley. Had been a little apprehensive as concerned they may have been a bit too slick but needn’t have worried. A great evening with fabulous harmonies, fine guitar playing and all those wonderful songs. Not simply a case of replicating the records either. Joe Walsh on fine form especially a storming Rocky Mountain Way. No Glenn Frey could have been a problem but they have replaced him with his son, who sounds very like him, and Vince Gill - never heard him before, but a fine singer.

Sheryl Crow an excellent support. Again, had not really heard much before but will in the future.

A lot spoken recently about sound in stadium gigs. From where we were sat, there was no problem and sound was good throughout, including for the support.
