Photo Hunt Music



The theme for this week's is music. Now I am tone deaf and can't play a musical instrument to save my life. Instead I have taken photos at some of the concerts I have attended over the last couple of years. All have appeared on previous blog posts.



Dave Brock of Hawkwind at the launch party for their last album Take Me To Your Leader, September 2005


Robyn Hitchcock performing at a Medecins Sans Frontieres benefit, December 2006


Peter Buck playing as part of the Venus 3 with Robyn Hitchcock, January 2007


Clare Szembek, keyboard player of a band called Captain, March 2007


Robyn Hitchcock, performing May 2007


Kimberley Rew, formerly of the Soft Boys and Katrina and the Waves, playing with Robyn Hitchcock at another MSF benefit, June 2007


I saw Robyn Hitchcock four times in the space of just over six months.You may have guessed that I like him a little!

I Love LIVE music
Where did you see a Medecins Sans Frontiers concert?

jams o donnell said...

Thanks all! I saw the MSF concerts in a small pub in London. Robyn takes over the pub a couple for a couple of nights once or twice a year and plays a classic album (December it was Pink Flod's Piper at teh Gates of Dawn, in June it was Sergeant Pepper), Each raises a a couple of thousand for the charity.

I'm sorry, I've never heard of Robyn whatisname!

I had the idea that you were a musician yourself. Must have been the loudspeaker thingy.

Dave looks so bloody old in that photo. All that drink, drugs and rock'n'roll U suppose. That and being 66.

Daisy said...

Photos of your favorite musicians is a great idea for the theme this week!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

You should put the musicians age under the photo so we can do a comparison of who's losing the 'Sex Drugs And Rock'N'Roll' Battle the fastest.

Linda said...

Great pictures of some great performances.

YTSL said...

Dave from Hawkwind looks like he has been around the block a few times, i dont think the leader would be to impressed if he turned up.

Cheers Mark

Flo said...

These are some great pictures. They show some real emotion in their playing - nice.
