    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Graham Nash in concert tonight in Oxford. Bloody awesome. His voice is still unchanged even though he is now 77! He even did some numbers that he wrote when he was with the Hollies in the early 60's. https://www.atgtickets.com/shows/an-intimate-evening-of-songs-and-stories-with-graham-nash/new-theatre-oxford/ Oddly enough we're going to precisely those places in a month. Our daughter and her husband are in Milan from Australia for a wedding, and we're meeting up with them for a few days, driving with them to Lake Garda.

    The most disturbing one by far is the orange thing smoking. Look at the table - a gun, a hypodermic, a hammer. And an automatic on the floor. I would not want to chill with that dude, music or no music!

    I had no idea that Lee Iacocca was (until a day or two ago) still alive. 94 is not a bad age, and he made a real difference during his tenure at Ford and Chrysler. RIP Lee Iacocca.

    That is also true. The majority of the British public who voted for Brexit are older people. So younger people feel rather betrayed - and that was certainly a factor in our daughter heading off to Australia. And she likes the climate, and the chilled lifestyle, and massive amounts of superb and spectacular hiking, cycling and running. Once you get around the idea of spiders the size of dinner plates, killer snakes, box jellyfish, saltwater crocs, and mosquitos the size of wasps, that is.

    My daughter lives in New South Wales. Looking at the countryside you can see one reason why.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Well that was a totally awesome concert - The Eagles in Birmingham (the UK one). Two and a half hours with no break - basically their iconic Greatest Hits and Hotel California albums (which I bought back in the day and still have) and a whole load of other, quite advanced sonically, stuff from later albums. The line up was the only remaining and performing member Don Henley (71) and slightly later members Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt, both also 71. Singing Glenn Frey's vocals was his son Deacon Frey (26), who was superb, and much to Carole's delight - Vince Gill. And the guys had lost none of their vocal ability and high notes despite their advancing years. It was the nearest thing to a hifi concert I've been to - the sound quality was excellent. One hell of an evening. This was the set list: Take It Easy One of These Nights Take It to the Limit Tequila Sunrise Witchy Woman In the City (Joe Walsh song) I Can't Tell You Why New Kid in Town Peaceful Easy Feeling Love Will Keep Us Alive Lyin' Eyes Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away (Vince Gill cover) Those Shoes Already Gone Walk Away (James Gang cover) Life's Been Good (Joe Walsh song) The Boys of Summer (Don Henley song) Heartache Tonight Funk #49 (James Gang cover) Life in the Fast Lane Hotel California Rocky Mountain Way (Joe Walsh song) Desperado Best of My Love
