    Missed it, Jan :rolleyes:

    Eric - Clapton?
    Billy - Preston?
    Paul - Mcartney?
    George - Harrison? (can't be...)
    Ravi - Shankar?

    Sounds like a trip on memory lane ;)

    regards.

    Yeah, memory lane ..........

    Oops, was too much in a hurry: of course not George but Ringo !
    With a little help of my friends :D

    Yep, you got the other ones right ;) :)

    Was also nice to see Ravi Shankar.
    I enjoyed the whole TV broadcast (tuned in a bit late ...).
    But, eh, music from India has to be real classic music IMHO, taking hours.... ;)

    Eric "Slowhand" Clapton was great as always.

    Eh btw ;) , did you know it was Duane Allman playing the lead at Layla

    Aahh, don't get me talking about music ;) :) :D

    Why not? Music is one of very few things in life that is real (in my opinion).

    Allman Brothers Band - good band indeed, but a bunch of very, very bad guys (most of them served quite a lot of time, if I'm correct).

    Technically speaking, one of the better guitar players at that time IMHO. Did miss the 'magic' from Clapton, Duane Allman, Johnny Winter, Hendrix - and of course Jan Akkerman.

    As for vinyl: I did give away most of my collection to years ago to a girlfriend (the relationship didn't last very long, the loss of the vinyl lasts forever :rolleyes: ).

    regards.

    Ouch! Now THAT hurts (the lost of the records, not the girl). Two of my favorites with the guitar were Jimmy Page and Steve Howe. I gave my vinyl collection to my sister when I moved away from home 30 years ago ... DUMB, oh well, at least they're still in the family. :doubt:

    I had to replace my stereo system a few years ago, and I had a heck of time finding one that came with a record player. After a LOT of hunting, I managed to find an Aiwa system that fit the bill, and my mother recently found one by Emerson.

    They're still out there, and I can hear your vinyl whispering ... "come play me, please ... please ...please ... please".

    I think I've still got one in my attic that has a record player, cassette, and if you can believe it, an 8-track player. For those of you under 30, don't bother asking what an "8 track" is.
