Quick list of my forthcoming gigs.

20th March - Toyah in Liverpool
22nd April - Joe Brown in Liverpool
23rd April - Rick Wakeman in Birkenhead
13th May -  Mostly Autumn in Manchester
17th to 24th May - International Pop Overthrow Festival in Liverpool
29th May - Roger Hodgson in Liverpool
28th July - Iron Maiden in Manchester
13th November - Yes in Manchester

Also possibly 
The Zombies in Liverpool (I think that's on 18th May, but it depends if there's a scedule clash with anyone I want to see at IPO)
and I am still saving up for High Voltage in July.

The list will of course expand as the year progresses. 

Notable by their absence is Crosby And Nash (much as I think it will sound amazing in the Liverpool Philharmonic I couldn't justify the ticket price at the time), The Monkees (again I couldn't justify the ticket price as it included getting to Manchester because I really do not like the Liverpool Echo Arena as a venue) and Ringo Starr (far too expensive for what is on offer!)

Best Quote Ever!

"Progressive is an attitude rather than a genre, isn't it?"

This quote is from Matt Stevens in his recent interview with Classic Rock Presents Prog magazine.

I love it.

I occasionally sit and ponder the various musical genres and still can't even begin to understand them properly. I like all kinds of music, and I'm not keen on being pigeon holed due to whichever type of music I appear to listen to the most.

I remember when I first joined and someone I know in real life added me there. They seemed concerned that whatever system they use to compare you to your friend meant our compatibility was low. Hardly, we had other things in common other than music and I like my friends to have diverse tastes. This is how I get introduced to and am able to explore different music.

In simple terms, I like what I like. If that skews your impression of me in someway, I'm afraid that's your problem. So yes - I will happily listen to a couple of hours worth of prog and follow it with cheesy pop, then a bit of classical music, maybe something with a jazz feel, perhaps a touch of Rolf Harris followed by some battle metal or traditional folk.

And Matt Stevens' music is in that mix too. I find his work a fabulous soundtrack for winding down at the end of the day or for working on the computer. You can find lots of his music by clicking here and you can pay what you want for it too.
