{ VIDEO ! } Steve Hillage - University Of Kent [Canterbury 1979] XviD



Hey fans. How goes your life.
Mine is trundling along as usual but nothing around here is 'as usual' at the moment.
I decided to put myself on an 'exclusion diet' about 8 days ago. this was my attempt to gain control of my illness and try to make myself get better too. Well, I have definitely been feeling better today!
It is a long LONG time since I was able to say or write that sentence and it feels good :)
There's a long way to go yet but for now, the diet is helping.
And on with todays offering...



Steve Hillage!
The man who can almost bring a tear to my eye when he lets his soul out and spreads hiw unique form of mastery over the guitar!
the man who is NOT included in 'Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Guitarists' list.
Tossers obviously don't know much about much! I mean - Kurt Cobain is in the friggin' list!?
Hillage is overlooked and underrated and I'm not really sure why.
It could be his look.
(hehe)
It could be his long-term affiliation to all things 'drug' and 'new-age'. And that's new age in the 'leylines, pixies and standing stones and energy from pyramids' sense of the word, not meditation CD specials that you pick up from a bargain bin.
There must be some reason he isn't more well known or talked about, even in circles such as the 100 greatest guitarists of all time list by Rolling Stone magazine. Funny that.
Well I hereby award STEVE HILLAGE the MP3@3pm award for the second best guitarist ever.
I am sure he will be delighted when he finds out.
(I won't tell him as he may get pissed about me posting his stuff)
Well folks on with the show...
I know a few of you liked what you heard with the previous hillage posting, coincidentaly, the audio version of this very show!
It may not then surprise you to learn that this is the video of said show and it's even better to see what you are hearing, if you know what I mean.
The tracklist is slightly different for this..do not ask me why or how but it seems to be..

As usual recently I have only uploaded to one filehost: Megaupload.com.
Now, if you cannot download from there for some reason then do these two things please: Leave a comment and tell me what the problem is with megaupload that stops you having your downloads. (Is it telling you your country hasd no slots allocated to it or is it telling you to buy a premium account or.. something else?)
Let me know ok!

Some file details and then the links.
I really really want you all to enjoy this as much as I have and I assure you the quality is as good as the DVD I ripped it from, which was a custom-made DVD taken from a Japanese TV broadcast of what was first Filmed and broadcast by the BBC with a show called "Rock Goes to College". I couldn't find the BBC version but I hear it has a time code running across the screen. Well, in a couple of speech parts(very few!) there is Japanese subtitling at the bottom.
It makes no difference believe me though, of course it is always nice to get a pure 'clean' copy.

hillage out of top 100.. shows what rolling stone's worth.. ludicrous, like about half his stuff, and when he gets the riff on, immensely, even system 7 stuff is quite listenable.. thanks bro.. narwhal

Hey there Ruby, I think you are confused, or perhaps I am(!) as the links above for thee video are already uploaded to Megaupload. Each of the links when clicked take you to a redirection page and then you click again and are taken to megaupload to download the file. Try it.
Unless I am not following what you mean...?
good Luck!

I don't care what all these magazines and rock encyclopedias wright.I know what my heart says,my senses says,my soul votes.
Steve is one of my top-5 guitarists
in my life (i'm 58) among Hendrix,Frank Marino (another similar situation as Steve),D.Gilmour and C.Santana.
I wish you all the best my friend!
