Well, he's nearly 70 now, ( born Dec 47 ) so he was nearly 69 at this gig

There's no one like him

WOW :o :o :o

The stamina to be able to play like that for long periods. I'm so jealous. Was a big fan of them in 70's / 80's and tried copying a lot of what he did but nowhere near as brilliant. It did however allow me to play a lot faster and tighter than the standard rock music i was playing up to that point. Also let me show off a little when i auditioned :lol:

Percy Jones, Jack Bruce, Geddy Lee and Richard Sinclair from Camel probably my biggest influences. Cant play like them but they were what i was aiming for.
Hopefully i learned something from them all. :)

Wow +1

I have never heard of this band before. Will definitely check some more out.

(The percussionist does look like the spare prick at a wedding though).

This track on the album Unorthodox Behaviour has the most delightfully subtle drumming from Phil Collins.

There's some lovely playing on Richard Barbieri's albums, which actually is where I first came across Percy Jones.

I saw Richard do a masterclass recently in Birmingham, he played some isolated bass tracks, fantastic!

Solo bassist, and composer.

I first came across Percy Jones playing weekly in O'Connors Tavern with The Liverpool Scene in '68/'69. He was jaw-dropping then.

'76 footage of Jones with Soft Machine . Jones had already joined Brand X the year before, because he'd stated in an interview
that with his £200 advance, he bought his PB fretless, which it seems he's using with Soft Machine

3rd track at around 10:50 you can hear the Jones style , and even more so at 19:00 , with that oddball home built flangery wah thing
( he was a bit of an electronics wizz )
