5.0 out of 5 stars Quadrophenia at Wembley 8/7/13, 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The content of this DVD cannot be faulted (unless failing to see yourself in the audience is a real gripe). It is entertaining and a historical record of the latest stage of evolution of the greatest live band ever. Cameo appearances by John Entwistle and Keith Moon raised massive cheers from the crowd, on this, the last, and all the previous dates on the USA and UK tour. If you buy a film you might watch it a couple of times. If you get this you can watch it over and over, marvel at the musicianship of the 10 performers onstage, or drink in the ambience of the backdrop film clips which set the scene for the Quadrophenia time and story. It was a long time being edited before release, but well worth the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long awaited re-release, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, it's changed its name from Moon the Loon, but the book is the same. A new crisp edition now available for £40+ less than a second hand original. The dialogue is obviously dated, now, but it serves as a historical reminder of an age now past, as well as an introduction to the dialogue and tortured vernacular of that time, as well as being highly entertaining and slightly disturbing. The cover is bland, and the photos low-definition, but Peter "Dougal" Butler's insights into the not-so complex character of the World's most dynamicly entertaining rock drummer ever are priceless. Keith Moon was not equipped to live long, but we still miss him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating (south Wales), 18 Nov. 2012
I bought this as it was heavily discounted and I didn't want to use my American (with quite different sleeve, thickness and paper size) copy which was signed by Pete in Philadelphia. Having read about half way (interrupted by a trip to Florida to see The Who in Miami and Orlando) I an savouring every page and taking my time. Much of the history is already well documented, but Pete's position on events is predictably different and in parts disturbing. As Pete is probably the most enigmatic of the significant pop musicians surviving from the 60s, I would commend this book to anyone (over 18!) whether they are interested in Pete, The Who, music, history, popular culture, art, or whatever. Fascinating.

Saw this artist twice this year (2011) in the UK, and in California in 2010 and 2009.
When he is not sharing the top billing he usually performs for over two and a half hours. This dvd is a great souvenir and contains some rare material (Tim Hardin's How Can You Hold On...) as well as his singes and concert staples (Lines on My Face, Do You Feel Like I Do etc). Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eclipse is recommended, 26 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Eclipse (Audio CD)
This isn't Journey with Steve Perry, but who cares? Arnel Pinada does a fantastic job as lead singer, and does the new recordings and historical back catalogue proud. This band is louder, mainly due to Deen Castronovo's drumming, and it works. The two "new boys" with long serving Neil Schon, Ross Valory and Jonathon Cain, is fantastic. These are great songs and added another dimension to their setlist in the June 2011 UK tour. (our fifth and sixth Journey concerts). We got the album just in time to learn the songs for the Wembley and Birmingham gigs and it's been a staple on our cd player or in the car ever since. Five songs from Eclipse featured in the set, showing its standing in the eyes of the band.
Recommended!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still the James Gang, 1 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Newborn/Jesse Come Home (Audio CD)
The amazing thing about this CD is that it contains two albums by different bands. JG was always prone to evolution and personnel changes, but this does not pose a problem for the listener. James Fox and Dale Peters are in all permutations and seem to exert from their rhythm section stability an influence which renders the output from whatever reincarnation of the band that you listen to, good quality music.
If you like the JG (having favoured ANY other JG recordings prior to this) this one is worth having. The only JG band I ever saw was in 1970 with Joe Walsh, but having bought all of their output since, have to say that I have enjoyed them all.
