There are too many
There are too many
Gotta give it to these two fellas too very original and very busy
Mark they are masters of their instruments. Where did you find them?
Are they based in France.
Not sure if I could listen to them all night but interesting.
I found them by accident about 3 years ago doing A YouTube search for thunderstruck and that popped up they were also on sky arts a while back too
John Lee Hooker
Stevie Ray Vaughan
‘That opera singer’ would be Montserrat Caballé
2 cellos, they are Slovene and Croat, I don’t know which is which, not that it matters anyway! Excellent musicians.
Absolute crackers!! Had me laughing out loud with pleasure. Totally unexpected development of cello virtuosity, wouldn’t have believed it possible!
2Cellos - recent discovery, would like to get to a gig but they haven’t done one which works both geographically and temporally for me (ie always wrong time and/or place).
Otherwise, in no particular order:
Ronny James Dio
The Doors/Jim Morrison
Marillion (Fish era)
Paul, your taste in music, especially heavy metal, has endeared you to my wife ! I must admit I enjoy Metallica “nothing else matters”. She’s trying to play it on the piano.
There’s a similar American duo - Emil & Dariel - though they’re a bit “wholesome” for my taste.
Try it on the banjo, accordion and double bass (their version of Thunderstruck is better).
Second Kenny Rogers. And how about Joan Baez, Kris Krisrofferson and Gordon Lightfoot?
John Ogdon, Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Daniel Barenboim, Neil Young, Elton John, Uriah Heep.
My mother’s friend used to live in a semi next door to John Ogden in Crosby in Liverpool.
I suppose you could add anyone who has won the Tchaikovsky or Leeds prizes.
The Walker Bros. Dionne Warick. The Moody Blues.The Searchers.
Yes Jane, he won the Tchaikovsky jointly with Ashkenazy and the two performances were superb. Ashkenazy became patron of the John Ogdon Trust along with Ogdon’s wife Brenda. Sad to think the great man (my musical hero) spent his time either on tour, at home or at the Maudsley…I’ve seen some top concert pianists but never had the chance to see Ogdon unfortunately.
Seasick Steve…! And the other guy…! x https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnI2QQOB6fE
