1.0 out of 5 stars Cameron does cars., 1 Feb 2014

If you have seen this film, you will know it's the best part. The other 135 minutes are a total waste of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aynsley does it again., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HOME (Audio CD)
Another brilliant album from a very underrated musician. 12 songs, 10 self penned, and all delivered with style, polish and skill. This fella should have more exposure than he gets. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Written on day realese from the funny farm., 31 Oct 2013
The fact he has a fascination with dictators was quite revealing.
The fact he is obsessed with the death of JFK, slightly disturbing.
And his love of the USA stands, with his millions, at odds with his so called socialist principles.
And to describe Gerrard as not a top, top player is quite frankly delusional.
Alzheimer's beckons, methinks.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's OK........., 2 May 2013
This review is from: Now What ?! (Audio CD)
.....But after 8 years is ok good enough? I really want to like this offering, but something is missing. I think we know. 'Hell to pay' just about makes the grade but that's it. Airey & Morse seem to be playing Purple by numbers. Especially Airey. You can just about see him thinking 'Is this how Jon would do it'? Some of the stuff he plays sounds like it was chucked by Keith Emerson. Morse tries to sound like Blackmore but falls back into his 'twiddley widdley' ways. Oh, if only Satriani had taken the gig. Anyway, at this rate, Gillan will be 76 by the time of the next release!! I much prefer 'Wake the Sleeper' by Uriah Heep from a few years ago. Or even 'The Stranger Within' by that German Purple tribute band Demon's Eye with Doogie White. Whatever. At least it's better than the latest from Bon Jovi but that's not hard. Then again, with some of the s***e around these days purporting to be 'Rock', this will probably be looked back on as a classic in years to comes and not another bunch of bananas.

1.0 out of 5 stars What about sacking it?, 22 Mar 2013
This review is from: What About Now (Audio CD)
Seriously. This can't appeal to the fans who bought 7800 or Slippery or Jersey. And don't give me any old guff about a band 'growing' or 'maturing' These days(ha!)they make Westlife sound like death metal. 1 star is 1 too many, way too many. I would love to hear them do a New Jersey again but instead we get Something Horrid In This release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aynsley Awesome!!!!!, 16 July 2010

This CD shows how good Aynsley is live. Very, very underated, very, very talented and an exceptional song writer, others take note. And check out his version of 'Purple Rain' while you're at it. Can't wait to see him, again, at the Boardwalk in Sheffield later this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funniest film I've seen in years., 2 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Honestly, it is. Having grown up watching Leeds United in the late 60's/early 70's this film was an obvious attraction. I had read the book when it came out and was hoping the film version would be better. It is. Spotting all the mistakes and real clips taken out of context was fun.

But seriously, I have to say that Leeds come out of it pretty well and old big 'ed as a flawed man. The film makers simplify his hatred of Don Revie and Leeds and condense it down to one particular moment. As with other incidents in the film, how true some of them are is irrelivent to the overall story. Michael Sheen's portrayal of Clough, while good, boarders on parody while Colm Meaney is spot on with his and Jim Broadbent is as excellent as ever. As a Deep Purple fan, it was great to hear so much of them in the film. Just like Leeds, they were at their height in the early '70's.

To my mind, the film takes the name of the book and that's just about it. Everything else seems to come from tv clips and incidents that are, if you are an old football fan, well know about. I do have to say that the dour, rainy image of Leeds is at odd's with my experience of the time which I remember as being joyfull and sunny, probably because we were winning a lot. Also, the image given of Leeds United as dirty is off the mark. That's what football was like at the time. After all, ask a Chelsea fan, you don't get a nickname like 'Chopper' for nothing.

This is a good film, you don't have to be a football fan to watch it but I just wish they would get the playing scenes right. I have never seen a film about football to get it right yet. The players in the film come across as cartoon like and again look nothing like footballers. Well, apart from the guy playing Mackay who I always remember being rather large.

Overall, well done but could have been better.

I've listened to everything from 'Bloodline' to this latest offering and I'm struggling to think of a bad track. Bonamassa is touring the UK in early '08, 'Nuff said.
