Hey Aggie, delighted you like it :)))
Hi ladyc - would have guessed this one too along with Brie. He's best known in his latter years wearing his sunglasses of course. There are too many favorites to mention but I did like "California Blue". I also had the pleasure of seeing him live in concert. One I'll never forget. While others were Elvis fans I was a Big O fan. Thanks for this one, ladyc.
Oh I went to see him, with the Beatles, at Woolwich Odeon in 1963!!!!
Just had dinner - busy day, helping out a nephew in an emergency. Oh well, I do remember the Travelling Willburys very well, they were pretty fantastic. And well done, Squish, I didn't pick the Big O but then when you know, the smile is definitely his! Nothing to drink yet, Neville, but I can remedy that!
Thank you Neville, I will definitely to that today :o)
If you get a chance lady c, have a look at a YouTube clip entitled Chuck Berry All Stars/Roll Over Beethoven 1977. This was from the Bandstand 25th Anniversary, and includes most members of the Blues Brothers Band (legendary), plus Bobby Rydell playing drums. All truly amazing stuff.
I've just googled the Travelling Willburys and had a read. I didn't know about them, I'm a bit too young there Neville sorry (that's my excuse).
What are you drinking RetiredJan? I cannot catch your 13.
The other two members of the Travelling Wilburys were George Harrison & Bob Dylan. Probably the greatest "super-group" of all time, other than the huge groups that were put together by Dick Clark for the American Bandstand Anniversaries.
Here have a hankie and dab your eyes. I didn't know about Jeff Lynne or Tom Petty, thanks :))
Thank you lady c. Brought a tear to the eye of an old fellow - it has wonderful memories for me. And let us not forget that The Big O was a member of the Travelling Wilburys, which also contained two other of my musical heroes: Jeff Lynne (from ELO), and the highly-talented Tom Petty.
And just for you Neville here is Leah ......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSPgLvYswQ0
Royalty never lies.
See Neville, I said you would know him :o)
Wow, squishy, that was sensational. Fancy picking Roy Orbison from that old photo - no wonder your statue is cast in gold!! In ten years here in Oz (July '60 to Feb. '70), he hit the charts 27 times, including five No.1s. That is phenomenal. I was a great fan of his, but the song I liked the most is not listed amongst those 27. "Leah" was the B-side of one of them.
Thank you very much!
Brava Brilliant, it is the one and only Roy Orbison a round of applause and a bottle of champagne goes to you Squishy - and here is Roy with the immortal Pretty Womanhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTCZSh4v2e4
Just checked - it is The Big O - Roy Orbison.
she knows you know :)
Good morning Squishy - would you care to elaborate ....
Morning all - late again - who's this then? His mouth reminds me of Roy - but since I've never seen his eyes, I don't know if that's who it is... (I was Too late for Paul Anka )
No he wasn't Mister Don :)
what a hairstyle. Was he worried about premature balding even at that age?
Good morning Mister Don, sorry, not Lonie Donegan :(
good morning lady c, sorry I'm late
I've been stood up !!!
Sorry, tea is on the table. Have to go.
Yes Neville, I know you trust me, I won't let you down promise. You do know him :))))
Many people say to me, lady c, "Trust me". Would you believe that I do actually trust people of regal/noble birth, such as yourself?
That's ok Neville, but you do know him ...... trust me
Top of the morning to you again, lady c. Sorry, cannot pick him.
