The Buzz

At the Brighton Dome

People complain of being "heavy handed" at Peter's Southampton gig of last week (from

High appraisal for Peter's last night gig at the Brighton Dome. "Just back from the Brighton Dome, where Peter and crew played a scorcher" said pk! "I've not seem him as many times as others here, but I've seen enough to get an impression, and tonight he was on top form. Not so much banter as the smaller gigs but only to be expected. Stephen Street is now my hero, he looked so damn cool all evening. I've never been a critic of Mik, but even I was pleasantly surprised: he was very very good tonight, did his wonderful solo I Wish. He seems to be settling well into the Ronnie Wood niche in the band. Peter looked so clean he might have been scrubbed (with Bilo Pads), like a teenager told to look smart for Granma. Bless him. Gig ended promptly at 11.00 (unless I missed an encore - but I don't think so - it's all over when the AC-30's are switched off?). Beautiful evening. Thanks to all involved".

Albion - Pete tantalised me by playing the first few chords of 'Waterloo' and believe me I DID holler - but he then told us about an interview with a stupid journo and then went into Albion. 17. Encore - only there wasn't one because there was no time left.
