Steve Hillage - University Of Kent 1979 [Bootleg]
Pirates on the open seas in 2008!
Sorry but am I the only person in the world who is slightly surprised that a ship carrying $100 million worth of oil (or anything for that matter) doesn't have any kind of arms on-board?
I mean, maybe one guy with an old Glock pistol? Even a friggin' Musket or some amateur archery wizard would be better than erm, oh, just the people required to make the ship move.
I say this because they were in the area that they know to be full of these pirates and they know these pirates have already got so many ships and hold so many civilians as hostages.
Ie. they were putting the crew at risk bigtime.
So um, did no-one think of getting some kind of friggin' security on their ship?
Well at least we are not the only pirates then.
There are few guitarists that merit the amount of awe I have for this next guy.
There is, of course, Jimi Hendrix which goes without saying really. To tell the truth I don't have many in my list at all. I know loads of guitar players for sure but, those with some kind of 'gift' that makes me unable to react as I am overwhelmed by the amazement their playing gives, are not so many.
Not for me at least though I would welcome any you would like to recommend?
(David Gilmour is one too).
Steve Hillage isn't as well known as the two names I just mentioned and yet, he is one of the most capable and very original and inventive players you will ever hear. He literally feels the guitar. He doesn't just play it, he becomes it!
Hehe. I know it sounds a bit hippie but that's tough shit.
It was during my 'hippie phase' that I got so into listening to him but it's carried on and stayed with me for life because his talent is a lot more and goes so much deeper than just the 'something that sounds cool when you're off your head' music. (Although it does!)
He has that spark of something that can't be explained very well...he has the ability to control you with his music. I don't mean he makes you go out and revolt against the government(!), he is the best I know at stroking the audience gently...inviting you in slowly with a hypnotic, uncomplicated riff and building on it, bit by bit, transforming it into a journey where you feel you could be soaring above the skies, out into space even, twisting and turning, through different dimensions and warped time...then he will hit you with a solo so strange and fast that your comfort zone, the one he helped you create, is suddenly shattered and you find yourself spinning wildly.
Have no fear of course, for he will lead you back into the hypnotic and meditative where he will eventually set you down slowly so that you can 'land' back where you started, feeling enlightened and refreshed!
Wow. I tried to describe what it's like listening to his music and I think I kind of covered it there :)
This is a live show - and that is another thing about him...playing live, he is just incredible. Doesn't miss a note.
