  4. B_AND_T - "Also had tickets to see Billy Fury and Bill Haley but the miserable fcukers decided to die before the event."

    Well intercourse my a'ged footware, that must have been some advance purchase - Haley died in 81 and Fury in 83. 8O

    I saw Haley and the Comets in 72, outstanding :boogie:

    Tickets to see Haley in Slough
    Tickets to see Fury in Bournemouth

    I am a firm believer that Fury was 100 x better than Richards but was always under rated.

    Have you heard any of Brian Setzer's new stuff with his big band?

    I have got both Albums. Absolute class both of them. It's the first time an electric guitar has been used with a big band.

    Do you know if they will be touring?

    Fury was a very good singer, a great performer, shame his heart wasn't in it!
     
  12. Not at the moment but I will look into it and let you know.
    Brian is the best guitarist there is for my money.
