    My Music: The British Beat

    Has anyone been watching this program being broadcast by PBS during their recent pledge drive. It's hosted by Petula Clark and has such 60's greats as Eric Burdon & the Animals, Gerry & the Pacemakers, the Zombies, Peter & Gordon, Moody Blues, and many, many more. Some really good music, but man do they all look very old. And it makes me also feel old.

    I haven't seen the program, but my grandfather says he recalls the groups you mention and they were good.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Methinks your grandpa was probably grooving to the likes of Bennie Goodman and company (who, BTW, I saw play at Riverfront Stadium in 1976 for the Bicentennial with Roberta Flack starting that day - I'd like to say he played first bass, but he played the clarinet

    Talk about feeling old...

    I once took a college roadtrip to Chastain Park near Atlanta just to see a Moody Blues concert. Didn't even have tickets when we got there--Ended up not only seeing the show, but we got to speak with Justin Hayward through a chain link fence.

    I think I've shared here that my first concert was the Moody Blues at Cincinnati Gardens (Van Morrison was the opening act). Here's a photo some friend of mine took (although i can't remember who now)

    It's nice, damn nice.. kinda wine and cheese crowd though. For best IMO, I like the Berkeley Greek Theater prior to the expansion, and Frost Amphitheater too.

    They gave one of the best concerts I've ever seen back in '81 in Cincy after the release of Long Distance Voyager. Did a Lennon tribute. Their song "Veteran Cosmic Rocker" is about John.
