I'm off to see Bill Bailey live (again) on Friday night biggrin.gif

WHO?

Bill Bailey is an English comedian, and musician. Nothing short of brilliant.

Here he is, giving away the secret to U2's sound:

And a tribute to Chis De Burgh
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu6uMDfBN88...feature=related

The Zen clap of acceptance
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-B9ugR8uNM...feature=related

And "Zipidee Do Dah", in the style of Portishead
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS7el6U1Dyc


Enjoy. biggrin.gif

Not a problem mate.

It's a larger venue this time (he's playing the NIA in Birmingham). But our seats are close to the front, so it should be good.

Yeah Bill Bailey....fantastic! Saw his live show on the 16th Nov in Manchester.

Sides are still hurting from the laughter laugh.gif

Maybe Bill Bailey could do a guest column on teaching the guitar through the medium of balloon modelling cool.gif
