It doesn't seem a week goes by without loosing another big name from the music industry.
Status Quo is a band I always enjoyed listening to they never much changed their style which was to me their appeal.
RIP Rick and thanks.

All Chordie members have a great Christmas.and good new year.

I feel so sad at Gregs passing in a way more so than Keith's not sure why. The guy was a gentlemen as well as wonderful guitarist and musician.
ELP was and still is one of my all time favourite bands and had a great influence in my musical choices.
I know death is a part of life but losing your musical heros brings home to me how short life is.
RIP Greg and thanks.

I grew up celebrating this event much loved by us Brits. My kids and G. kids also have enjoyed it over years and by the sounds of it's still popular now.
It strange how the attempt at mass murder should be remembered so joyfully we are a strange lot.

Really I  haven't practiced guitar seriously for years. I play almost every day for my enjoyment. I only get serious if I've got some lead to play on a recording then I guess I practice a lot to get it right.
I just got to many other things in life to get bogged down with guitar practice every day.

Being of a certain age early Floyd had the greatest impact on me musically. As keepitreal says Meddle was so different at the time and the track Echoes was mind blowing in good way.
The Darkside album had some great tracks was more main stream and lead to commercial success.
I enjoyed listening to all the later works but they never had the same impact of the earlier works.
I watched a couple of documentaries about the bands history and realised what a huge effect they had on the development of music in the world.

I must say Phill that was like being transported  back to the 70's musically and I mean in a good way.
Excellent stuff. 
In my Prog Rock days if the title track didn't cover the first side of the LP it wasn't worth listening to smile

It's basically an ambient Chillout track.
If you have about 7 minutes to waste please have listen.
It's recommended to close your eyes and think of nice things smile

It's rare for me to sing (The term is used loosely) but I have had a go..
Just a simple song about life.
https://soundcloud.com/tonykerry/end-of-the-day

[D]In the garden of his[A]life
[G]Sits a man on a[A]stone
[D]He's surrounded by[A]flowers
[G]But sometimes feels all[A]alone

[D]His flowers are[A]tall
[G]But the weeds still grow[A]to
[D]He keeps them[A]down
[G]But some still grow right[A]through

[G]Now this is the[A] garden of his [D] life
[G]Filled with [A] darkness and [D] sunlight
[G]There is some [A] colour there is [D] grey
[D]But it [G] is what it [A] is at the end of the[D] day
[D]But it [G] is what it [A] is at the end of the[D] day

[D]He's tried his [A] best
[G]To garden with [A] care
[D]But some of his [A] loses
[G]Have been hard to [A] bear

[D]He raises his [A] hand
[G]To shield his eyes from the [A] sun
[D]But does not see [A]
[G]His life is almost [A] run

[G]Now this is the[A] garden of his [D] life
[G]Filled with [A] darkness and [D] sunlight
[G]There is some [A] colour there is [D] grey
[D]But it [G] is what it [A] is at the end of the[D] day
[D]But it [G] is what it [A] is at the end of the[D] day

How Many Lives. Good question Phill and there is no answer because we are dealing here with the mostly unpredictable  human race.
Maybe in the future our self destructive nature will be minimalized in our nature. I think it's true to say that generally we are less war like than hundred years ago. Time will tell as they say.
We have always lived a violent world and now through mass media the effects of it are brought into our homes immediately and graphically.
Which is good and bad.
Good song Phill.
