Yup - just after The Raging Against The Dying Of The Light Blues in 7/8 (great song title! ;D)

They definitely played Nice Day For It in Campden though - they performed Falling Satellites in its entirety and, watching from the side of the stage, I was in awe of Jem's playing on that track (my favourite on the album). So v happy if that one makes the cut.
Album, DVD, EP - not bothered. Just keen to get some new Frost*!  8)

Good point. It's just about the anniversary of the gig...

Announcements / Prog Top 50 Keyboard Players
« on: September 29, 2018, 09:43:10 AM »
Interesting readers' poll on the greatest keyboard players ever in the latest Prog magazine. Jem was number 29, which was quite respectable given the opposition and that this was a survey of more than just the Frosties (we'd obviously have him far higher!).

One or two anomalies as you always get in such surveys. John Beck (It Bites & Kino) only at 47 and Geddy Lee at 19! Now, Geddy is my favourite bass player but putting him 10 places ahead of Jem as a keyboard player - really?! Even I can play Subdivisions but I can't play Milliontown...

I was at the Newcastle gig last night. Gig of the year for me - absolutely brilliant. I'm a big Camel fan anyway but the addition of Pete into the band has taken them to another level. His keyboard playing was spot on, nailing all the 70s sounds (I'd love to know how he had all the patches and splits set up), his lead vocals gave me goosebumps (best of the 3 lead vocalists) but his sax playing was a revelation. He was even playing sax and keyboards simultaneously during Lady Fantasy! He similarly got huge applause for his solo on Rajaz.
The rest of the band were also on form. You had to remind yourself Andy Latimer is now 69 and had to relearn how to play the guitar after many years of serious illness. Great to finally get to see him and hear his unique tone live.  8)
