of course, Peter didn't send his guitar, Kirk Hammett who now owns it brought it with him...



how great does John Mayall look??

it is pretty great!

meanwhile, more Pete Townshend's posts - love the caption on this one:

"One song. The rest of the night is all old white men trying to sing the Blues. I suppose that’s me too really. "

I wish Mick had broken up the band and continued to honor the bandís legacy in this way.

Too bad itís tainted.

Nice, thank you!

And I notice Mick is just playing quarters and the other drummer is doing all the work.

Would someone from FMAC please feature your talent?

I must say how pleased I am for Rick to take such a leading role amongst such illustrious contemporaries. Good for him.

I love Rick. I've seen him a few times at a blues club in Nashville. He's a great guy and player.

The antithesis of Sleazy Nicks.

Very true, though he can still sing and move and not a twirl in sight....

If it was just about the dollars Mick could have chosen a much bigger venue than a central London theatre , don't you think ?

Regardless of whether or not he was there, Peter most certainly deserved a tribute show and is worthy of any and all praise he received. Without knowing it he changed the world and although he wasn't part of Fleetwood Mac when they achieved their greatest commercial success, none of it would have ever happened had it not been for him. The caliber of talent that participated would be spectacular for more popular or better known artists and it's awesome they showed up to honor Peter.


Well said !I was there and mostly it was very enjoyable Jeremy's appearance was the highlight !Albatross was messy!
