  1. Cool pics - nice you've having fun w/your new band. I spy a guitar player behind you in that last pic thinking to himself 'I woulda suspended that Bb...' Tell us more about your Hatt(?) amp. Not familiar w/those.
  2. Nice - sounds like it's coming together.
  3. Ha! Gotta watch those full wallets. Glad you had a fun gig - sad to see a long standing venue close.
  4. Thanks for the entry, Mark. Always enjoy reading on your band journey.
  5. Ouch. A bit of time put in and like you say close to gigging so that's a set back. Sounds like you're rolling with it well. Best of luck in finding the replacement.
  6. Nice read - enjoyed that. Especially the 'The room I have retreated to...' sentence. And that your prior destination is now your daughters. Circle of rooms it is. And Dooverlackies. Yes. That's gonna be my next band's name. Cool pic, too.
  7. Been nice following your band's progress, Mark. Like these blogs. Be nice to see some vid of your band one of these days, too.

    In with both feet.

    Nice blog, Mark. Enjoy reading of the journey. Do you plan to record? Have been waiting for years for a follow on to Live at Leeds...
  9. Congrats on filling out the lineup. And targeting some twin lead WA tunes - look forward to hearing those! Good luck on the next step and upcoming gig.
  10. Nice to read you're putting the band back together, Mark. Best of luck. Hope it all works out well. Looking forward to this space to read of the journey. btw, saw Status Quo in late '74 (think it was) here in the states on a bill with Blue Oyster Cult. Fun show!
  11. Nice, Doug! Really like the groove, playing, and singing on Devil Ray. Making my way thru the rest as I type this. Just saw this on blogs today - don't usually look over on this side of the monitor, at this section. Awesome sound from your band - looks like a fun gig.
  12. Nice blog, Josh. Looking forward to hearing about your progress. Really hoping you find a group of like minded musicians.
  13. Nice write up, Josh. Good goals! Looking forward to reading on your progress.
  14. Ah, so THAT's where you've been, Josh! Good read on this blog entry, thanks for writing it up. Interested to see how it unfolds as those are good goals. Fully can relate to them and to the time conflicts in getting there. Not sure if it fits in your project plan, but (imho) taking lessons with a good teacher is time and money very well spent. They can really accelerate the learning process, helping to set a practice routine and lessons that best moves you where you want to be. Good luck on your journey! Keep those tubes and guitar warm!
  15. That's too bad, Mark. Mostly the loss of time invested and that you're back to searching for a singer again. If it hasn't unraveled totally and if your mates are open to it, maybe a compromise could be worked where the singer buys part of the pa?... He gets the speakers, someone else (or even the band splits) the board or something. Just a thought. Could be that financially your singer just can't swing it at the moment regardless of his intentions to do so. I understand your view of the investment instrumentalists make vs vocalists, although it's unusual (in my limited experience) for the singer to own the whole pa unless a band leader that's hiring side players. Instrumentalists can gig with a small investment like a squire classic vibe and blues jr... even thos we'll gravitate to the best gear we can afford. Other thought is to look to clubs that have their own pa - most around where I live have their own system now, which of course makes it a lot easier. Anyway, hope this bump in the band road works out for you.
