    That's takes me back - thanks for posting the link.

    Be-Bop Deluxe were highly underrated in the 70's I think.

    Just Googled him and its good to see that he is still going in his late 60's

    They were great, nice to be reminded of Ships in the Night.

    Check out "Bill Nelson and The Gentlemen Rocketeers" on Youtube. I have the 2CD/DVD of the performance. it's excellent.

    "and though I know the time is almost 1984, it feels like 1965"

    There's loads of Bill Nelson's stuff I don't like, but I've always loved Revolt Into Style

    Saw them back in the day - Axe Victim/Sunburst Finish tours - fantastic. He is a great guitar player and a v.competent producer.

    The Bill Nelson story is one of highs and extreme lows. I hope he is in a better place these days, I know he sold a few of his guitars to keep going a few years back. Well ahead of his time he never really got the success he deserved. Live in the Air Age is one of the stand out live albums of the 70's!

    Indeed, it's an excellent recording.

    Saw BeBop Deluxe in Edinburgh many years ago. They were supported by A Flock of Seagulls. Oh the hair!
