See John Cale in concert

And Bdooly fab he was too. For those of you too young to remember he was with Lou Reed in the Velvet Underground. He had an orchestra playing with him and for an old boy (he must be 60) he was rocking!! Did a brilliant rock jam session with them which was awesome. Excellent stuff. Love Lizzie

Rock on Lizzie!

I'd have liked to see him.

Never mind - I'm off to see Clapton and Winwood tomorrow

Oohh lucky you!!! I love them both. Hope Steve Winwood does Valerie for you - that always sets my spine tingling. Have a fab time. Love Lizzie

Not the hugest Velvets fan, but I admire the way that despite having spent so many years in New York, Cale hasn't lost his accent.

Despite living on the edge of London, I rarely go to gigs.  Partly because we don't have a car and don't live within walking distance of a station.  Mind you, I spent so many years going to see bands that I think the novelty wore off.

It was marvellous!  Two legends playing together - got to be good.

Didn't play 'Valerie', but they did sit down together with acoustic guitars and do Leila. You could've heard a pin drop in the audience. A smashing version of Voodoo Child too.

I think this was the first date of the tour, and with Stevie being a Birmingham boy, it was very well received. Old rockers do age slowly - I know he's the same age as me (er, I'm not sayin') and looks bdooly good to me!
