I’ve just been watching Miles Davies at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 on You Tube. He appeared on the Saturday night along side some of the biggest stars in rock music at that time. Although he only played for 38 minutes, it was 38 minutes of absolute genius. He and his band played one long continuous piece of music and when he was asked what it was called he said “Call it Anything!”
The program for this years Proms is announced tomorrow – not something I’ve ever been excited about before but this year I am. My knowledge about classical music has expanded so much in the last year that now I know what I would like to either go and see or listen to. So I can’t wait!
I really like this picture – I took it at Sunderland Poly on 1st March 1980 – just over 30 years ago. I found the negatives recently and scanned them in. At the time I couldn’t get any decent pictures from them as the light on the night was awful – almost non existent. However with modern digital techniques I managed to get a half decent picture from them.
