Obviously no Wilko Johnson but i really dig Steve Walwyn on his 67' Tele.
Greatest band ever, my favorite line up was the Gypie Mayo era, I did a gig on Sunday next to the Kursaal in Southend, good times.
I love the Wilko era best, but Gypie was an amazing guitarist IMO, very under rated and sadly no longer with us
Love both Gypie and Wilko. Lineup in video is also really good.
rip gypie...amazing player!!
but hard to follow up the idiosyncratic wilko..purely one of a kind! (after mick green)... saints preserve him
People always talk about the original line up and rightly so but the band had to move forward and they did imo.
See a few clips of the originals and its great but I get a bit bored with Wilko to be honest and I've supported him on many occasions, I tend to watch the genius of Norman Watt Roy.
I've also supported the present line up and am mates with the bass player Phil Mitchell but they don't play with the fire they had when Lee was there, after 30 odd years it has turned into a weekend job.
I saw them live with Gypie Mayo and Steve Walwyn.
i like both, but i like Steve's sound more.
Back in 1979 i worked for the German Label of Dr. Feelgood.
I met the Band one afternoon before a Gig in Cologne, Germany.
They invited me for a drink in their Tourbus.
They served Gin Tonics one after another and played Poker.
Three Hours later i was drunk as f**k but all four of them were OK and went on the Stage and played a fantastic Gig.
I was Sick the next two days.
Real nice Guys.
Fair comment, BUT do any of us still play with same fire we had 30 years ago ? I wish I did.
BTW I think that Steve Walwyn is one of the finest players in the UK.
