    Happy birthday Mick Ralphs

    I inspect care homes for a living and was privileged to meet Mick whilst working. I shook his hand and thanked him for making my life richer for his music. So sad, happy birthday.

    I think I’ll quit playing now…

    Personally this stuff, whilst very clever, leaves me stone cold. I'm from the Mike Campbell/Eric Clapton school of playing. Each to their own though.

    Nutz or what?

    My favorite Clapton tone

    He has been the biggest influence on my playing and I love the mid seventies clean strat tones. Anything that features 'Blackie' will do for me.

    Are you happy with your playing skills?

    50 years on and I could/should still be better. I have no theory to speak of so all self taught by ear. Arthritis is currently the main challenge and I've had to stop gigging and recording for that reason. It's also slowed me down a little but it has made me concentrate more on (hopefully)...

    Some say your vehicle.

    I have a Mercedes Benz CLK 240, 2004. A very comfy, effortless and lazy drive. The old girl does A to B in a superb way. For fun I have my Triumph Street Twin.

The objectors seem to just say it's all rubbish, there's no evidence and he is a crank. (Some posts here give a flavour of that). Has Mr Hancock...

    Really? Again?

    Both my wife and I work in adult social care so we've been exposed to the Covid on a daily basis. We were fortunate when we caught it in 2020, delta variant before the vaccine came out. Luckily we were not that ill, hardly at all really and we've been clear since. Hope she is ok.

    Sadly this isn’t a joke.

    I would class that more of a whoosh than a bang, but I take your point. Mans greatest adventure.
