There really are wonderful sunsets at Waterloo - it's the way the river winds.

Robust stuff!

Steve Marriott had a fantastic voice

Marriott was born in the same hospital as me - East Ham Memorial Hospital, Essex/London

[It's incredible to think that he hasn't been with us for 32 years...!]

I've seen some of these on dvd and video cassette: Black Sabbath, King Crimson, (I think) UFO and Atomic Rooster.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
