Plus mountain biking and road riding. And hiking.

Do I put this up..

Ah!! Sod it...

I try to be a guitarist of sorts..
I've never done anything of note,just a Scottish dude that dabbles..
I play all the guitar on the songs below for the singer Linton Osborne..

Linton was in Nazareth for a while..
He had to sing cabaret singing other people's songs when not touring the World so he could survive and feed himself,
the money was better singing in local clubs doing cover versions..
that's the truth about Rock'n'Roll these days..

No interest or money in Rock Music these days,he has went back to being a folk singer and I can't really be bothered playing in a band at the moment..

Yes I do actually use ear protection before the judgemental police come out.. :lol:

I am not a goat and my real name is Kev..

This is me..Definitely not a Rock Adonis..

So I am the overweight beardy dude on the couch,in the picture in the first song,,nowt glamorous about me.. :lol:

I've never played any really big venues,Linton and myself maybe thought we would have got some nice gigs,
after him being in Nazareth,not much interest really..He did get an offer to sing for a AC DC tribute band though.. :lol:
What a World,mind you I think the tribute bands often make more in the end than some of the originals..
It would have been nice to have a few interesting experiences like that in your life though..
To have played at big Rock festivals etc..
It never happened though..
So here I am 51 soon,,a genuine Aging Rocker.. :lol:

So I wrote the song City of Sin below, hope the links work..
Oh and I didn't mean the end bit to come out so much like Highway Star... :lol:

This is one I wrote about the MC5,,I know the lyrics are pretty cheesy..
I'm a guitar player really,not a songwriter...

https://youtu.be/OXnK6qiKKmQ

This is one written by Linton with me on guitar doing something a bit more Dreamy and Atmospheric..
A sort of late 50s early 60s thing..

Anyway,I'm off to do some listening to Jacques Loussier play Bach,
or maybe some Ronnie Aldrich and his Two Pianos. ...

Great guitar - glad you did "put it up".

Would buy an LP version. Would sound great on my setup and the louder the better. :) With your talent you could have played more of the big gigs for sure.
Sometimes life and luck just does not present the right opportunities at the right time.
