RIP to one of the greats
We are shocked to hear that Manchester music scene legend CP Lee died today. The driving force behind Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias was 70 years old and a legend on the city’s music scene. Born in Didsbury in 1950 he was a writer, broadcaster, lecturer and performer who sixties band Greasy Bear. also featured the legendary Bruce Mitchell on drums.
They had an almost-hit with their Status Quo spoof Heads Down No Nonsense Mindless Boogie in 1978. Also, CP was a witness to the Dylan "JUDAS!" moment at Manchester Free Trade Hall.Not familiar with the sound but he rocks the look - you know he's alright. Wil listen away.

People magazine said Philbin died of natural causes one month before his 89th birthday, citing a statement by his family.
- Philbin died of natural causes, according to his family, one month before his 89th birthday
- Guinness World Records listed Philbin as having put in about 17,000 hours on television
- He was paid $28 million a year in 2000, the most ever for a game-show host
"His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him for his warmth, his legendary sense of humour, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about," the statement said.
Here's a news item on his death and career ...RIP John Saxon, I feel a rewatch of Enter the Dragon coming on.
I wasn't aware of this, until just seeing your post there.RIP to one of the greats
It was the reverse for me ... I was a fan of the original Fleetwood Mac, and I was quite skeptical when first encountering the mid-Seventies incarnation with an entirely different motif.... I first loved Fleetwood Mac for rumours/tusk/tango in the night etc. However discovering their earlier era with Peter Green was like finding a whole other amazing band to explore, a bit of a revelation really. RIP.
He had a lot of talents, but I always admired his phrasing--especially live.I wasn't aware of this, until just seeing your post there.
I had the extraordinary privilege of standing mere feet in front of the guy for an entire gig, when his band astonishingly played in a local Galashiels pub some, 16-18 or so years back.
I was on a bus which briefly stopped in traffic outside the pub, when I noticed their poster advertising what I presumed to be a tribute band.
When realised otherwise... straight off the bus to check I wasn't mistaken.
I believe circumstances were something along the lines of them having a sudden spare date, due to a cancellation elsewhere and through mutual friends /agents, they were offered this alternative at short notice.
Such was Peter Green's majestic touch of feeling for playing blues, BB King remarked that Green was the only blues guitarist who ever made him shiver...
RIP at last fellow and thanks for the wonderful legacy...
Yup, a good innings and plenty of recognition in her lifetime. Reputedly a sweet character too.Tremendous age.
It wouldn't be up to her if Flynn dared to go for it. He was famously priapic.the perfect match for Robin Hood as played by Errol Flynn. Apparently they really fancied each other but she was too shy to anything about it... so she said!
Such a beautiful, eloquent eulogy... wish I had wrtten same.He'd hold back at times and appear a split-second after your brain raised an eye-brow as if to ask, "Surely he's going to come in here?" It made his lead parts extremely satisfying because you asked for and then received.
I think there was a lot of mutual respect between Olivia and Errol, and the romantic feelings he had for her was a big part of that. They starred in eight films together, and she was not the sort to fall down for anyone - she originated the De Havilland Law which prevents performers from doing things they don't agree to because of their contracts. She may have looked and acted demure, but she was pretty tough.It wouldn't be up to her if Flynn dared to go for it. He was famously priapic.
de Havilland was an important star, which meant Flynn would have a lot to lose by treating her the way he usually dealt with women.
I'm not trying to convert anyone to the Cardiacs, music is a very personal choice, but I need to pay my respects to Tim Smith.Tim Smith - I can't say I was a fan as I was just listening to so much other music so missed out. His band did influence others, (young knives spring to mind).

- 30 July 2020
Tributes have been paid to the Bafta-winning TV comedy director and producer Sydney Lotterby, who has died aged 93.
Lotterby made British comedy classics including Porridge, Last Of The Summer Wine and Yes Minister.
The director was also known for As Time Goes By, Butterflies, May To December and Open All Hours.
BBC director general Lord Tony Hall said he will be "hugely missed", but leaves "a true legacy of laughter".
"Sydney Lotterby wasn't just part of the golden age of British comedy - he made many of the shows that stand out as real icons of the period," said Lord Hall.
May I ask what he said about Greenaway?Was there any successful director with the range of Alan Parker? OK, some will say musicals were his favourite genre, but there was so much more to his filmography than those. And he was totally unpretentious about his craft, too. Also, he was right about Peter Greenaway. RIP.
