Carl Palmer & his band performing Emerson Lake & Palmer and more

A consummate professional, a brilliant technician and a dynamic showman, he has thrilled listeners and audiences alike for nearly four decades with some of music’s most memorable bands including Atomic Rooster, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Asia and Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
From Wishbone Ash, original founding member Martin Turner & his band plays the music of Wishbone Ash
With millions of album sales and concert attendances worldwide, Wishbone Ash’s heritage as one of the most enduring and best loved British rock acts is assured.
The classic line-up of legendary folk band The Strawbs
The Strawbs comprise David Cousins, along with lead guitarist Dave Lambert, and the astonishingly versatile Chas Cronk, who together formed the front-line of the classic 1970s line-up of the band. As they move gracefully into their fifth decade of music making, it is still difficult to categorise the unique sound that has made them Britain’s most successful international progressive folk-rock band.
Eric Cawthraw…A bit of a mixed bag – and very interesting.The Strawbs did start to go a bit heavy at one time – and I’m curious to see Martin Turner’s W. Ash as opposed to Andy Powell’s.It is either going to be a long evening – or short sets. With all the material available – it suggests the former!
Alan Esdaile… Always liked the Strawbs track Lay Down but the ‘B’ was superb. Backside under the name of Ciggy Barlust & The Whales From Venus (1972).
Yvonne Cleland… Lovely, and love the ‘band name’ :-). Hmmmmmmm quite a night! I would love to go to this and would love to see the Strawbs. I’d definitely like to go.
Pete Fairless… How many drum solos?
Matt Thomas…. There you go Alan,arrange a SMART night out
Alan Wood… Woo the White rock ,you sure, !!!!.Carl Palmer did a 10 minute drum solo with Asia recently ,wow something to live a bit longer ,prog on. Well I’m going
Glenn Piper… Now that is a lineup worth seeing 🙂
Gary Kinch… I vaguely remember someone who had a stereo hooked up to his guitar amp playing g lu
Glenn Piper… ‘g lu’?
Gary Kinch… I g lu? …….. I g lug w………I glug wine
Dean Morrison… The Strawbs my favourite of that lot 🙂
Mick Mepham… If I’m not gigging I’m going.
Pete Fairless… Drum solo medleys?
Josephine Claire Hamill… OMG I better be there for that one!
Alan Esdaile…Looking at the new White Rock Programme it lists the following to play. The Strawbs featuring Dave Cousins, Martin Turner and His Band performing Wishbone Ash and CURVED AIR WITH SONJA CHRISTINA! However the website still lists Carl Palmer as the 3rd act. Anyone confirm as it would be brilliant if it was Curved Air.
Peter Fairless… Nothing on the Curved Air website, Alan, but they are on tour in April. They may be using it as a warm up…
Colin Bell… Im with Alan, if Sonya Curved Air are playing im there! Saw Martin Turners Wishbone Ash 5/6 years ago at Tunbridge Wells Assembly Rooms wuth Stan Webb, great gig.
Alan Wood… Wouldn’t have thought Carl would have energy left after touring with Asia ,was bril though
John Storer… Christ! Carl Palmer looks like he’s had a tough paper round!
Mick Mepham… Colin, was that the gig with Groundhogs and Focus, in T. Wells?
Colin Bell… Hi Mick, yes it was, a bittersweet memory, great gig, took a very good friend of mine Steve who was seriously huge fan of Focus and got a great photo of him with Focus. Steve sadly passed away 2 months ago. R.I.P.
