This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

I remember I watched it live on TV, and there were lots of technical problems. In fact, the whole sound was absent for some of the first songs. So, in order to be released on CD, they need to 'fix' some things, and Geoff was called to play.
