New video! Our Shangri-La... One of my favourite Mark's songs, a fan favourite, a diamond, whatever you want to call it, it's a masterpiece. And a masterpiece, that's not hard to play! But hard to sing (I tried). I always loved this song since the day it was released, I hope to share some love for it with you. You can't say a lot about a simple 6-chord song, but surely it's not about how many chords are there. Anyway, hope you like it. And welcome to a new camera and 60 frames per second! Pavel.

I think it is a good book, pretty up front and packed with lots of well referenced detail

Absolutely. It`s a very enjoyable read even for a long time fan like me. Always a pleasure to read about DS and MK.
Once you have started you hardly can stop.  ;)

Even More

Is there a specific gig you remember vividly (maybe the crowd, set list, energy etc)?
"Well Nimes and Verona, both beautiful Roman buildings"

could you PLEASE do another video on your version of SULTANS OF SWING, Basel 1992. of all the previous straits drummers, you totally nailed it and is the best version ever!

Does anybody recall a video where MK was training with an acoustic, wearing a cap, playing licks from Mississippi blues and Thats alright mama among others??
Can’t find it anymore.... Does anybody have the link?

Chris Whitten commenting the video:

"Yeah, same grimace"

"I liked OES because of Jeff and Manu. Jeff's playing was the main reason I agreed to do the long tour. "

"I was lucky that Danny was so good. He was fun to play with. Robert Collins mixed the out front sound and by all reports he did an amazing job!"
So he did like the music after all. You have to enjoy it at least a bit to be convincing enough to get hired for the job, no matter how professional you are.

Great!

That's a nice video that he did. I've always wondered, once a musician knows a song, plays it a million times, does he know it for life or does he have to rehearse after some time off? For example, did Chris rehearse the song prior doing this video? Dunno -- will ask him then  ;D

know for life

It depends solely on the difficulty level. If it's terribly complicated, no way any human being would remember anything after 30 years. However, if that something rather simple, that you can recollect fast in real-time, of course, that's with you forever. I think the basic grooves and ideas Chris could easily remember by heart. Because, as he said, a lot of it is just The Rosanna shuffle and some hi-hat grooves.

Correct. The only trace we have is the confirmation from SD that MK ordered these SSL1 type of pickups.

I am thinking to order them as well but this is a tough one for 300 USD ;-)
