Billy’s in the Jazz list

I’ve just noticed the jazz list is in alphabetical order

In fact both lists are in alphabetical order which isn’t very helpful

But the omissions are still pertinent

Agreed. I saw him with his band about 7 years ago

He was superb - fast and still very fit

His young guitarist and bassist where excellent- particularly the former

No keyboards, but they did all ELP stuff

A small venue, I can’t remember where, he mingled with the crowd afterwards signing tub heads

No John Hisemen either....!

But glaring error in both jazz and rock lists is John Marshall of Nucleus, Centipede and Soft Machine - one of my top three tubbers

[Cosy Powell is 82nd in the Top 100 - who are these guys...?!]
