yes i've been watching this too, Nile Rogers comes across as a lovely guy. I particularly liked the first episode when he thought through Chic and Sister Sledge he'd found the magic formula for writing hit records only to be told that it wouldn't last and 3 years later Chic couldn't buy a hit as they went out of musical fashion, i'd have liked to have heard in the 2nd episode some of their songs that didn't make the chart to see whether they were good songs but just went out of fashion. I've just wiki'd Chic singles discography and weirdly as Nile said, after having their biggest hit , Good Times they couldn't buy a hit afterwards. My Forbidden Lover which i knew only reached 43, after that i did not recognise any of their songs.
Enjoyed watching Chuck Berry in concert last night. That was Billy Kinsley, [ex-Merseybeats] backing him on bass. For those who can't access the I-player, here it is on Youtube...
Also check out On the Beat with Spencer Leigh interviewing Ken Womack, on his biographies of George Martin; also a documentary film maker about his Abbey Road project, as well as the curator of Forthlin Road talks about when Paul visited recently for "Carpool Karaoke".
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
