At the Hop Monk in Sebastopol,Ca. I am there
Andy Powell is a beautiful player.
Seen them numerous times, always great
Just got into these guys... Good stuff.
I saw the line up billed as 'Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash' about two years ago, it was great!! Which line up is touring now??
Not sure Monts, but the billing says "Wishbone Ash-Argus LIVE!"
Is that going to be outrageous or what?
EDIT: I think it's gonna be as follows:
Andy Powell-Guitar, Vocals
Muddy Manninen-Guitar, Vocals
Bob Skeat-Bass, Vocals
I saw that lineup a few months ago in St. Pete. Pretty good, I think fans will enjoy it.
Jealous !!! Would really love to see them live . Definitely report back .
I love wishbone ash and know most of the original lineups on a personal level.
The current lineup is great too. They're the most underrated band of the seventies and a real band for connoisseurs of rock.
I was a fan back in the day--perhaps my favorite band in the early 70's--my HS band tackled some of the tunes, which was a pretty big undertaking for a bunch of kids--I actually still remember some of my guitar parts. Saw them at the Whiskey when they were just coming up, and later at larger venues, including a show where they were billed over Kiss! Since Andy Powell is the only original member I'm a bit skeptical about the new lineup, especially since Andy wasn't the main singer originally--that said, they are playing in my hometown and I may go--please keep us posted before I plop down my $$
Love Wishbone Ash...I might check them out at the M15 in Corona, CA. That's a tiny place, but I had a great time when Schenker came to play a couple of years ago...
They are playing Atlanta soon and I think they are going to play "Live Dates" in it's entirety. While I'm sure that will be killer, I wish I had seen them last time out when they did "Argus".
I saw them a few years ago in Nashville at a criminally underattended show. I had to get Andy's autograph on the Argus record jacket that I brought. He got a kick out of that.
Cool, they're a great band to see live.
Andy's been the only original member of the lineup for a couple of decades now, and trust me they rock. I've seen the Powell led versions several times. Andy does a very good job covering the vocals; his style wasn't really that far removed from M Turner's anyway. They are still what they always were; great guitar driven prog band. They cover the old stuff well, and the new material fits right in and is pretty strong.
Thanks--on that recommendation I'm gonna try to make it!
Sebastopol tonite!!! Anyone else goin?
