No I was producing them. They had a female bass player.

Howdy

Not that I'm much of a hippy, but...

That well known sailor Dougie Thomson is from Glasgow. He was on the boat that won the Fastnet race that Simon le Bon almost drowned in after The Drum capsized.

If this seems a tenuous link for Glasgow's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame I should also point out that he plays bass for Supertramp.

On a really tenuous link, what about all the great live albums recorded here, usually in The Apollo. On Genesis' Three Sides Live, Phil Collins launches into a burst of I Belong To Glasgow. Which is, an interesting listen.

To my shame, I saw Supertramp playing the City Halls in 1974 or '75 (Crime Of The Century? Definitely).

I also saw Genesis, at the Apollo, but at least Gabriel was still with them, and Collins was thankfully well hidden behind the drum kit.

Going back still further, I recently bought my mother a CD by the Clyde Valley Stompers featuring Mary McGowan. What's important about it is that the first half of it was recorded live at the St. Andrews Halls in June 1956. The sound quality is surprisingly good, and even though Trad Jazz isn't my scene, the musicianship is at least as good, if not better, than all that Kenny Ball/Acker Bilk stuff.
The highlight of the CD has got to be "I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate", if only for the title.

The actor Brian Pettifer,Rab C. Nesbitts wee pal,has a sister called Linda who married Richard Thompson and became one half of folk rocks most dynamic duo.Possessor of an amazing voice and a great songwriter on her own account.Mother of country/folk troubadour Teddy Thompson.
As an aside Brian was the last man to act on screen or indeed anywhere with Peter Sellers in a Barclays commercial in 1980.
As another aside i saw him in Morrisons Crossmyloof this morning.Plain loaf,cooked chicken and a Glasgow Herald in case you are wondering.

I saw Bob Marley and the Wailers at the Apollo around 1978/9. Fantastic night.
