    Track is ok but I don’t care to hear it again.

    Unusual drummer stance. Open handed, left leading but has a jazz hold. Even though I’m right handed i lead with my left when drumming for reasons I can’t fathom. So I always notice it.

    Looks like a Harmony Bobkat.


    I'm a huge Nick Lowe fan. He writes simple, fun tunes, and he also writes stuff that can rip your heart out.

    Nick Lowe is one of the greatest pop rock songwriters of all time!

    My one Nick Lowe moment was seeing Little Village,
    the temporary super group that had earlier been the backing group for John Hiatt's Bring the Family recording. They would soon after, put out Little Village album, and tour.

    So it was John Hiatt, Nick Lowe, Ry Cooder, and Jim Keltner.
    Not bad!

    I really like this Nick Lowe song that Elvis Costello recorded.

    My son sang a cover of this song at a local college studio.

    + an airline & a danelectro bass: 1 can see the cooder lindley influence already seeping in (even over the magical wireless system . . .)

    Right, and Nick Lowe played bass. Wish I had a chance to see that lineup. Bring the Family is literally in my top-10 favorite albums of all time. It is a perfect record from the first note to the last.

    I absolutely love the guy!
    I saw him with Rockpile, His Cowboy Oufit, Noise To Go, Elvis Costello, and solo.
    Brilliant every time!

    My daughter loved this song when she was 4. Nick really kept his music muscles in good shape as he got older. Still puts out a decent record every 18 months or so, and a great one about every 5-8 years.

    Well she can work those lights
    So they fiddle with the traffic
    Sometimes she as mean
    As an M- 16 automatic

    Loved him on the Los Straightjacket tour. Still listening to “Cruel to be kind”.

    Nick (and Rockpile’s) music saved the late seventies for me:)

    And for that I’m forever grateful:cool:
