Recorded at Olympic Studios, 1970.

By coincidence, I was reading Deke Leonard's tales of recording there while the Stones recorded in the other studio to the one they were in.

They used to tease Charlie mercilessly once they realised he avoided using the term 'Stones' to refer to his bandmates:

'Have you seen the boys - have they been in?'

'Boys, Charlie? Boys? There were a few girls around earlier, they've gone I believe...'

'No, the guys - my lot, you know?'

'Your lot Charlie? There was a guy around, I believe, he left with two of the girls, I think'

And so on indefinitely...

He certainly does- it is so sad his life ended in such a tragic way

Virtually is a masterpiece.

So complex and brimming with music

Sadly too short - less than 40 minutes!

Tomorrow - I ill give the Hammersmith odeon more thought.

There are a load more bands I saw there.

It was my second home for years - my brother and I used to ride there on our motorbikes

Indeed they do

A fantastic bass guitarist - probably the best that has ever lived [sorry Hugh]
