    Fantastic that you guys have been able to keep this going.

    What did you play?

    Cheers,

    Thanks - we played the usual selection of well-worn numbers like Route 66, Workin' Man Blues, Albatross, Too Hard To Handle, I Shot The Sheriff, The Joker, The Last Time and other Americana, Rock, Blues and Country and Western.

    Hell yeah.

    I think my ears have just about returned to functionality, and I can hear the sound of the keyboard clicking as I type. Ear plugs next year I think...…...

    Great time though, and thanks to you Angelo for organising. Good to meet up with the usual suspects again.

    I am sad that I couldn't make it, it looks like so much fun. Great to see all you guys in one place. Angelo, Tony, Richard, Rick - and others who I may not have met yet.

    It’s the same shirt! The photo is a time-lapsed photo giving the impression of them being in the same photo.

    Things are tough in the UK at the moment!

    Gutted I couldn’t make it. I booked all my travel around work assignments and still I couldn’t make it.

    Until yesterday, I'd forgotten what a gem of a song Tom Robinson's Motorway was. I was in proper Pete Townshend mode. I even made a hole in the ceiling! In my defence, it was only 6 inches above my head....

    Don't worry, no guitar was harmed. It was a Telecaster's headstock through the ceiling. Now, if it was a Gibson, I'd be nursing a very second hand guitar!

    Hi Tex
    When we spoke on Sunday at the Jam you identified the pickups on the Tele I had there - but I can’t remember what you said- was it Sidewinders?
    I’ve attached pictures to jog your memory, or maybe someone else out there might also have an opinion on what they are. I can’t find a picture of pickups like them anywhere
    Thanks in advance
    Rick J

    Jon, I think I can speak on everyone's behalf when I say you were indeed missed. There will be other jams and we hope you'll honour us again with your fine presence.

    I used to play frequently at the Stork Club in Oakland, California. There was a little wall on stage left made of 1/2" sheetrock. I liked to stuff the head of my guitar through that wall. '68 Telecasters can take it!
