Thanks Rdro and Jivvy - I listen to this thread when doing a crossword sometimes - excellent.
The Stones stuff is always interesting but the one that stood out for me was Isaac Kamakawiwo'le - an icon in his native Hawaii apparently - Jivvy thanks for 'larnin me !  :)

Pursuing that romanic vein - here's Susi Quatro and Chris Norman, 'Stumblin' in' - I first heard this played in 'Panache' Club in downtown Lagos and didn't know who it was or what the song was called. Finally tied it down 20 years later on a CD played by a seller at the River Kwai bridge.
I'm not a SQ fan generally but for me, this is great !

Suzi was quite the pioneer as she was the first woman who played an instrument to become a major rock star. She did tend to scream out those lyrics. lol

Yes rdro - I really don't like that 'Can'. But 'Stumblin' in' is sweet - Susi has a really nice voice - when NOT screaming ! On that tube - it's obviously the original recording i.e. NOT live, and the miming gets pretty awful as it goes on ! Good though. Chris Norman was the lead singer of 'Smokie' - just noticed that on Wiki.

Did SQ do any other 'quieter' stuff ? I liked this one :-

Still touring at 67, go SQ. Being a blues and R&B guy I like this side of Suzie.

I like Suzi Quatro and her songs, especially Can the can. :)

I bumped into her in 2001 or 2002 in London. Apparently she lives (or lived) in the UK, in Essex.

First, I can't resist posting a song with doctor in the name rather than a band with doctor in it.

Doctor doctor by UFO. I love it. There was a band in Korat 10 years ago who could play a wicked version of this song.

Gregg Allman died last May. Did you know he had a son that was a musician? Well I didn't. His name is Devon Allman, he's 45 and been with a number of bands. Here is some of his music.

^ Nice music.

Here are a couple I've listened to recently. Both new artists to me but both nice to listen to.

Steve Earle - Copperhead Road

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhMO9azmKNU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhMO9azmKNU</a>

Frankie Miller - Jealousy

Thanks alfie. I actually have that Steve Earle album but never hear of Frankie Miller. Really like that song and did some research on him. He's Scottish and been singing since 1966. Sad news,

Miller suffered a brain hemorrhage in New York City on 25 August 1994, while writing material for a new band he and Joe Walsh of the Eagles had formed with Nicky Hopkins and Ian Wallace. Miller spent five months in a coma; when he emerged, he was unable to speak or sing. He then went through rehabilitation. The BBC Television documentary Stubborn Kinda Fella (1999) featured Miller and his battle to recover. In this documentary, Rod Stewart stated that Miller "was the only white singer to have brought a tear" to his eye.

Miller is no longer able to perform, but a new album containing old takes by him was released in 2016. The album, Frankie Miller's Double Take, contained 19 songs remastered into duets with other artists.

A slight change of musical style for me this evening - some Thai music played on a "Ja-kay", a kind of floor zither.

A flashback. A friend introduced this song to me in the late 70s so I will always relate this song to him.

Thankfully I'd never seen this video until today.  :D

Alfie - Thanks for 'White Punks on Dope'. Horrible. Sorry.

I've been listening to this track on a collection in the car - 'Jar of Hearts' by Christina Perri.  It's a fine example of 'music in agony', as perfected by Adele. (I love Adele but her songs seem all the same).

Anyway this is now a favourite of mine, but I don't think the dreadful 'Tubes' will approve.

Worth a listen maybe ?
