Question:
Which recent, (but not current) bass player with Jethro Tull for 11 years, played with Rick Wakeman on his The Six Wives Of Henry VIII - Live At Hampton Court Palace performance earlier this year?




(Pretty impressed if any get this without googling, as there have been a few line up changes over the years, with Ian at the helm!)

an aside - (The only reason I know, is that, said Bass player happened to be standing at the bus stop near our house and my husband, who was underneath our car fixing it, recognised him.
As he is a Tull fan who has every album they ever released since he was a boy, he couldn't pass on giving a compliment or two, to the man with a bass waiting for a bus. Then couldn't resist inviting him in to our kitchen for a beer! and more of a chat, and very nice to meet he was too!
Having made him miss his bus, we did later gave him a lift to the train station so he could go home.)

The only Tull bass players I can think of are Glenn Cornick and Dave Pegg?

TL was, of course right with Rick Wakeman.

No, neither of them.
This bassist, he's a young'n - (well, more an Elbowish age, and a really nice bloke)...parted company with Tull in 2006 to do stuff with Thin Lizzy, The Divine Comedy and then Archive, before Wakeman called on him.

Jonathan Noyce? (he, a small chubby one used to fool around with the keyboarder of Tull, a long tall one... Very Happy )

Though we havn't entertained the keyboarder Giddings in our house.

TL, you definitely ask the next question now.
I realised I didn't give you a chance for a question before...and now you have 2 different questions correct.
Sorry x

A bit OT Wink - Oh dear I'm afraid I haven't a clue TL - but I am going to see Jethro Tull in March and the previous question makes me realise how out of touch I am! Sounds like a wonderful chance meeting there, LWD.

TL, which one does not belong?

Oasis - because they have split up?
or Mogwai because they are Scottish, and the others all have members that have links with Lancashire?


OT - Glendarian, enjoy the March show.
(We are still out of pocket by £76 from the shambles of the Memories of Woodstock Festival in Shrewsbury last summer, that never was, when we were going to see Tull, JLBJH (with orchestra) Strawbs and Melanie- who played at Woodstock originally. We still havn't got a refund back from that wannabee promoter)

Ok, watch the video.
Who originally wrote and sang this song?
and extra kudos if you can name the bass player who is with Steve, try first without looking at the info on youtube.

It's a Ray Charles song. No idea who the bassist is.

scratch

edit: just looked at the song information, now I know who the bassist is, but still none the wiser

Correct answer hesh,

You are scratching your head as being none the wiser about who the bassist was.
I was just being a tease to throw in an extra question about a musician who is not a household name.
Yet he has given a lot of pleasure to so many over the years, and played with many of the 'big' names, and features on many albums, including his own. I first saw him at gigs in Caravan, and more recently as a duo with Geoffrey Richardson (who was also in Caravan, but now is mostly with Murray Head)
Bit of his past music history in below link, if you're interested.

So your turn for a question.

Thanks for that link, I'm vaguely familiar with some of those bands, but hadn't heard of the fella till today. That's something I love about this forum, that other members bring interesting bands to your attention; I'll be checking out some of his work now.

Now a question, hmmm ok,
who played to the smallest crowd on the main stage (Ithink there may have been only one) at the original(1969) Woodstock festival ?

I'm going to say Jimi Hendrix. If I remember the documentary film correctly, he was the last to play, and most folks had already gone by the time his set started.

Absolutely correct Chrissie.
He was the main headliner, so was billed to close the festival on Sunday night . The event had overran so severely that he didn't go on till the Monday morning.

Allllllrighty then! New question:

Since the late 1980’s, Johnny Marr (former guitarist for The Smiths) has appeared on albums by all but one of the following bands. With which band has he never made a recorded guest appearance?

Oasis
Girls Aloud
M People
Blur
Pet Shop Boys
Crowded House

Lucky guess! Laughing

OK, let's go off on a tangent. What’s the connection between The Simon Park Orchestra’s "Eye Level" in 1970 and the Teletubbies’ “Say Eh-Oh" 27 years later?

OMG I remember Eye Level - it was the the theme for a TV prorgamme, was it Van Der Valk? I didn't know the Teletubbies had a single but hardly surprising. Wink I suppose it's wa-a-a-y too vague to say they're both from TV programmes? Question

Like your thinking, Glendarian, but that's not the answer I was looking for.
