    As a musician even if I don't prefer some artists work I still respect those who have talent and sure as the sun rises in the East Neil Diamond and Tom Jones are both very talented artists. If ever invited to play in their bands I wouldn't refuse either.

    Not that that's ever gonna happen. :( LOL

    From the news article. Also mentions that the singer Jay Murray got back up and finished his set (if not the song)..

    I laughed. Thought it was staged. Now I feel horrible horrible guilt.

    BTW - I've been a singer/guitarist most of my life - weddings, birthdays, you name it.

    Sweet Caroline would be in a list of rare songs that EVERYBODY in any room seems to know. Any age. Any walk of life.

    (King of the Road is another. But way cooler ;) )

    Bernie Marsden go kicked out of UFO in part for smacking Phil Mogg in the back with his guitar on stage.

    Marsden later said he admired Mogg's professionalism - he kept singing all the way to the stage floor.

    Gibson Thunderbird bass.

    The through-neck construction is sturdy enough to allow at least two good whacks...
