Bert Weedon

Sorry to hear of another loss to the British guitar scene. Bert's influence on young players, including GG, will never be surpassed.

I remember those TV lessons and thought of him as a very nice man.

RIP

Re: The Making of "Bridge Over Troubled Water"

Was it 1965 I was lucky to see Paul Simon in my Local Folk Club, the Railway Tavern, Catford!? Time flys!

Another young lad that went a on to greater things. BOTW was only one of many albums that were inspired. In my humble opinion.

Re: The Shining Morn Concert - Birmingham Town Hall

My old friend Gordon Giltrap will be dedicating his next concert on the 10th October at Birmingham Town Hall to the memory of the great Bert Jansch.
I really wish I could be there as I am sure it will be a night to remember, as I know Gordon was a very close friend of Bert. I hope all who can will t...

Re: When / where did you first see Gordon play?

Well I could go on about the ‘Sixties’ but I have forgotten a lot of it! However it was probably 1963 when at a pub in Blackheath Road, Greenwich South-east London, where my friends Bill & his sister Frances McGillivray were playing in their band that, in their break, Gordon did his bit. A frien...

Re: Bert Jansch

I send my sympathy to all Bert’s family and close friends.

I am one of those who could only marvel at his artistry and will always think of him whenever I pick up my guitar, as I have done since his first album.

Sad to hear the news about Don Partridge. I remember you inviting Micheal Ayre and myself to Don’s house to take some photo’s of Accolade for publicity, he was not in the mood to be co-operative. Having said that I can remember he could be charming, letting me try his big Gibson hanging on the wall!...
