WELCOME

Welcome to FlyingVs.com.

Over 500 gigs. 100+ venues. Nearly a thousand bands. Rock on.

I have been going to gigs for over 40 years, and when sober enough I have kept all the tickets and set lists.

Here they are in one place. If you like a bit of archiving, you can search by band or venue and see if you were there.

The Sex Pistols for £1.75 anyone? Extraordinary stuff.

To celebrate what can happen when you go out to listen to live music, check out this YouTube clip. I went out to see Diesel Park West at the Half Moon in Putney, discovered the bassist was ill, and ending up filling in: LIKE PRINCES DO. You never know….

I was asked back for the encore:

WHEN THE HOODOO COMES

THE WAKING HOUR

And here is an old blast of me playing Rocky Mountain Way at the Half Moon in Putney, courtesy of Preston…

Rock on, and let me know your experiences.

On the blues front, it was good to be featured in the same set list as Bonnie Raitt and Mose Allison

And here is my band Fastback, showing how a Flying V should really be used.
