I always liked Steve Harley's stuff, it was "pop" but beautifully crafted pop. And he had the brilliantly talented Jim Cregan on guitar which didn't hurt. ;)

RIP Gerry Conway.

Gerry was "THE" folk rock drummer of the late '60s ‘70s and ‘80s, playing with Eclection, Al Stewart, Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, Sandy Denny, Fotheringay, Kate & Anna McGarrigle and Cat Stevens.

Conway joined Jethro Tull for their album The Broadsword and the Beast and also played on their Grammy Award-winning album Crest of a Knave (possibly my favourite Tull album).


Although he appears on none of his studio albums, Conway was a member of Richard Thompson's live band for several years in the 1980s, appearing on the tours for the albums Hand of Kindness, Across a Crowded Room and Daring Adventures. Some songs from these sessions appear on the compilations Watching the Dark and Live at the BBC.

He played on until last year, playing session work, and drums in the reformed Pentangle, of whom his wife, Jacqui McShee was a member.

He was a superb drummer providing a rock solid structure for the brilliant musicians he worked with.

Conway died on 29 March 2024, at the age of 76, having been diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2022

OJ Simpson has passed away, so I hear. The only man whose hearse will be travelling faster than his car chase did.
