A pal of mine in Kilkenny last night sent some video of crowds flocking out of the stadium there, only when i turned the sound up and after a few minutes careful listening did i realise it was the Zim murdering his back catalogue.

Last night at Hyde Park: Neil Young and Bob Dylan

I heard from some mates who were there.  Neil was excellent.  

When Dylan came on, his voice was poor but he sat down at the keyboards and played 6 or 7 songs they didn't know.  The crowd weren't bothered with him and were just talking as though it was just background music.  Then there was a steady stream of people leaving and going home - easily 100 people per minute. They said they'd never seen anything like it.  

They know their music and said they did not recognise anything he played, except for a very different version of Like a Rolling Stone.  Said it was like listening to a bad singer on a cruise ship or a hotel lobby.  The 'exodus' increased. Even people with Dylan t-shirts (ie fans) were leaving.  When he left the stage, so did most of the audience, although he returned to sing Blowin in the Wind.

You have to assume most of those leaving early had only been there for Neil Young but, even so ...

Such a shame.  He was clearly having an off night.


I was there and would have to agree. Neil was excellent with superb backing from Promise of the Real. Never seen Dylan before so was not really sure what to expect. All I can say is I was one of those many that left early to avoid the crowds and find a pub before closing time and I didn't regret that decision. Neil should have gone on last.
... but then you wouldn’t have made the pub before closing time  Cheesy


Very True! But for Neil I would have risked missing the pub. That's how much of a Neil Young fan I am.  Smiley

The pubs in central London do close very early don't they? 10.30pm on a Saturday night and they are all locking the doors.  Huh

In the Fairport email newsletter:
"Joining the Cropredy line-up...

We are delighted to announce that rock'n'roll legend (and Cropredy resident) Joe Brown will be joining Fairport and other guests during our closing set on Saturday evening.

Joe is highly regarded as a "musician's musician". He is a virtuoso on guitar, mandolin, ukulele and banjo and has played with Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran and Johnny Cash among many others. We can hardly wait!"

Are you signed up to it?


For some reason no - I'll look into it.

I hope it won't mean Ukulele Central is rolled out again!!

Ian McNabb at Thornton Hough Village Club. Ian on top form last night, a couple of songs in he decided to tear up the set list and take requests, his own stuff for the first set and covers for a good part of the second. Made a good fist of everything thrown at him (except for Stayin' Alive and anything by The La's which he flat out refused to do), You're the One That I Want in the style of Dylan being particularly surreal. From the sublime - The Killing Moon, Working Class Hero - to the ridiculous - Mull of Kintyre, The Wonder of You. Huge fun, great night, the guy is an absolute treasure.


Wonder if anyone pressed record...I'd like to hear that.  


I expect John Kidd, who runs the Facebook group, will have recorded it, although I feel Ian may not give him the okay to post it - he did say to the few who were filming not to put any of the covers on YouTube, which I can understand, it was definitely 'of the moment' and probably wouldn't look too good out of context, it was a essentially Ian leading a pretty ragged singalong.

Never that keen on 6X meself, too fruity. However Henry's IPA was a fine pint.
Any TAWer please feel free to buy me a pint. I'm not proud.

Thanks. Wildwood Kin and I'd probably stay in the field, a clash only with Caravan and I'd probably go down the pub.
I'll have a look at Clashfinder, I didn't think there would be one.
