My first ever gig, at the Gaumont in 79.

A proper band.

thanks Dave.

 

At a time when it wasn’t cool to be able to play an instrument proficiently, The Stranglers were a decent bunch of musicians. Dave Greenfield’s keyboards gave them a Doors type of sound. They also had that wonderful rumbling bass sound. Top band.

Yeah, all good here thanks, although I can’t wait to get back to some kind of normality. Keep safe!

Sad news, great keyboard sounds that were akin to great Stranglers tracks. Good to see the wolfpack didn't get to you.

. I can’t believe that he was 71. For some reason I thought that he was a lot younger.

Jet Black is 81, although he no longer tours with the band and hasn't for a few years.

Wow! I suppose I put them in the same age bracket as the other punk bands but they were obviously a bit further along!

Great band - No More Heroes, Grip, Something Better Change, 5 Minutes, all absolute belters though my particular favourite is The Raven. Also achieved the rare feat of improving on an original with their brilliant cover of Walk on By to which DG's superb keyboard work was integral. Saw them a few times including at Reading Rock Festival in 87 which was absolute carnage. RIP.
