    Just finished watching an excellent documentary about The Proclaimers who are on my very short list of acts to see live.
    One interesting fact I learnt is that Edwyn Collins, of A Girl Like You fame, is a Jock!

    I had always thought him to be a Yank or a Canuck.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Mmmh. That prompted me to ponder who is on my short list of acts I still cross the road to see and since I saw Neil Young and Crazy Horse about 20 years ago (Edit: Sheffield Arena 9th June 2001. Isn't Google wonderful?) - it is now only Randy Newman and, of course, Bob Dylan: both growing older gracefully along with me.

    That was excellent but less impressed with Annie Lennox later who seems to have lost something as she has aged.

    I turned down an invitation to see the Proclaimers in Chesterfield a few years ago which I now regret.

    This last week I have been listening to the Grateful Dead, every night in bed, really enjoying it and not a band I ever gave attention to back in the day.
    Is this acceptable cool or am I too old now?
    Don't roll with a pig in poo. You get covered in poo and the pig likes it.

    Well as the approaching-10,000 pages Encyclopedia of Popular Music says at the end of its extensive and laudatory entry: "Quite simply, you either get it or you don't".

    For my part I have always thought the Dead were a Californian cult - and we all know about California.

    And yet... Dylan toured with them (shambolic?), made an album with them (terrible?) and co-wrote some songs with Robert Hunter (er....yes?).

    And yet...the wonderful Bruce Hornsby toured with the Dead and on his brilliant Across The River Jerry Garcia plays a scintillating guitar solo which must have helped the song reach #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990, and apart from Touch of Grey (#7 in 1987) this was the only time Garcia got anywhere near the Top 40.

    And so.. I guess, I get it.
