What's on your mind?
NewDave: Apologies to everyone I have annoyed or offended with posts that are or appear to be political. I will not post such things in the future. New Dave Oct 5, 2020 9:00:10 GMT
scorpiodog: I didn't know you could edit shouts, Pete. How do you do that? Oct 5, 2020 9:47:18 GMT
NewDave: No worries. ;) Oct 5, 2020 10:43:34 GMT *
scorpiodog: Cheers, Dave. One learns something new every day. Oct 5, 2020 10:51:36 GMT *
NewDave: That Barry Manilow gig on Sky Arts right now. I don't care what you say. The man is awesome. What a performer. I don't know if it's an act or it's genuine but he seems to put his heart and soul into every song. Oct 5, 2020 21:26:27 GMT *
alanwhittle: Hello. Does anyone here know me? Oct 7, 2020 21:34:44 GMT
ocarolan: Not yet, , but hopefully we soon will - why not say Hi in the Introductions section and tell us a bit about yourself and your music...? Welcome to the Forum! Oct 7, 2020 21:57:24 GMT
NewDave: "He wouldn't quibble he'd let you have a nibble with a little bit of parmesan cheese"? :D Oct 8, 2020 8:27:34 GMT
scorpiodog: Hey, Big Al. I know you! It's Paul from Wimborne. Oct 8, 2020 11:04:00 GMT
NewDave: If you want to see something extraordinary switch on ITV and you can watch the finest clay court tennis player of all time beating the world number 1 like an egg. Oct 11, 2020 13:58:27 GMT
NewDave: Face-Off is on itv4 tonight. Oh joy. :D Oct 13, 2020 19:32:03 GMT
NewDave: oh yeah Oct 16, 2020 22:02:36 GMT
NewDave: Django Reinhardt was badly burned in a fire and only used two of his fingers for his solo work. The other two he only used for chords. It's not the guitar - it's the guitarist. It's not the talent or the natural ability, it's the work. Oct 16, 2020 22:55:12 GMT
NewDave: And yeah - I'm talking to myself. Oct 16, 2020 22:56:33 GMT
robmc: Well it is the guitar too Dave, but I'd say Django did a mean air guitar, Bill & Ted style 8-) Oct 17, 2020 7:11:06 GMT
NewDave: In my case, when I'm waffling like that, it's not the guitar or the guitarist - it's the :beer: Oct 17, 2020 9:37:59 GMT
NewDave: I love James Taylor but I just can't get with his cover of Hound Dog. Oct 28, 2020 20:00:13 GMT
NewDave: There's a film called Strippers Vs Werewolves on London Live and 13 year old me is doing cartwheels cos he just knows this is going the be the best film ever made. Oct 28, 2020 23:36:45 GMT
walkingdecay: Bye Bobby. Thanks for the "rewrites" and for making me have hysterics in the bog. Oct 29, 2020 13:04:13 GMT
NewDave: Rock on Bobby. Oct 29, 2020 22:02:04 GMT
