It was indeed Arthur Lee who headed Love. Albert Lee is another well known guitarist, still around. Then there's Alvin Lee, late of Ten Years after.

Anyway Tyrone, your post reminded me that I still need to watch that. the TV is no match for being there, mainly because most of what;'s good about Glastonbury never gets on the TV, but still it's better than nothing.

It's a pretty good set. I was expecting him to do " My Little Red Book " but he didn't.

Sorry , I'm just a country boy, I get confused easily.

Just teasing Tyrone. I saw Arthur Lee play a set with Shack (a Liverpool band that emerged from the Pale Fountains) about 15 or 20 years ago. He and they were brilliant.

I know you're just having a laugh. I saw Albert Lee do " Country Boy " years ago, also in Liverpool, he was brilliant. " Plays a guitar like ringing a bell " came to mind, it was effortless.

It would be remiss of me not to tip my hat to Paul Weller, who by reaching number 1 in the album charts with On Sunset, has become only the third artist to have number 1 LPs containing original material in five separate decades (and the other two are Lennon and McCartney which is spurious as one of them was a remixed effort of previously released stuff). The first four Jam albums were out in the late 70s, and All Mod Cons and Setting Sons in particular could easily have topped the charts, so that almost makes it 6 decades. Incredible longevity, whether you like his stuff or not.

The Gift - The Jam - 1982

Our Favourite Shop - The Style Council - 1985

Stanley Road - Paul Weller - 1995

Illumination - Paul Weller - 2002

22 Dreams - Paul Weller - 2008

Sonik Kicks - Paul Weller - 2012

On Sunset - Paul Weller - 2020

Sorry OJF but I've never managed to get into his solo stuff, its hard to forgive him for splitting up The Jam....

He also needs to cut his hair, he looks slightly sinister with that new barnet.

But no doubt about it, a music icon, one of the greats.

As I tell anyone who will listen, his solo stuff is a mixed bag, that’s part of the attraction of him for me these days. However if you liked The Jam there are plenty of solo songs that wouldn’t have been out of place on a Jam album, with the possible exception of his last album True Meanings, which was a bit different.  If mix tapes were still a thing I could do a belter of Jam-type songs from his solo career. 
I’m in no position to comment about anyone’s hair to be honest but I think he’s modelling his latest style on Bowie (who his wife is a fan of apparently). 
Check these solo songs out Gav:

Peacock Suit

Brushed

There’s No Drinking After You’re Dead

A Bullet For Everyone

Come On, Let’s Go

From the Floorboards Up

Savages

Push It Along

Fast Car, Slow Traffic (featuring a certain Bruce Foxton)

Wake Up the Nation

That Dangerous Age

White Sky

All Jam-like 😎✊🏿✊🏻
