    Any ukulele players out there.

    Bought a solid mahogany top concert ukulele from PMT on a whim today. Any advice for a lapsed guitar player?
  5. Roots Hall 1971

    Hello, My Son-in-Law is researching the history of music in Essex, and wonders if anyone remembers or has photographs of a concert which took place at Roots Hall in July 1971? It featured Yes, Atomic Rooster and Mott The Hoople, amongst others. Do you know why it was held? Also, has the...
  6. Barrett's a cert for first goal according to w hill's

    Bookie William Hill seem to think that the returning Adam Barrett is a certainty to score the first goal at Oxford offering odds of 1/100 :omg: So if you put your £100 on him and he does score the first you will be richly rewarded picking up £101 when you collect your winnings! Yes an error in...
  7. Question Are Play-offs a certainty??

    On BBC Essex last night, they were wanging on as if a PO place was a dead cert. They kept saying top 3 might be hard to grab, so Blues will have to settle for play-offs, but my question is, when did our PO spot become a guarantee? I'd say we'll be there or thereabouts, but I wouldn't take our...

    Famous(ish) people who follow Southend United.

    There have been a couple of threads on here recently where Colchester's stadium has featured along with Elton John. Whilst Elton is not a Col Ewe fan (not many are), it got me wondering how many famous/well known people follow, or pretend to follow the Blues. The only name I can think of...
  10. Col Ewe Fan on a Piece of String

    Just watching Chuck Berry in concert and he doesn't even know the words to his own song. Singing about a ding-a-ling. He is old so has probably forgotten the right words.

    Funny enough, I was just talking about a great concert she'd played here in Badalona a few years back, with a fellow Blues fan yesterday.One of the Blues greats.

    Games you have had to miss but didnt really need to be where you ended up going?

    Just realised that the Daggers away league game clashes with the wifes friends wedding. Not only that we have also got tickets to see Steven Marchant in concert the same night at the Brighton centre so I am gutted. Not that I am a massive Marchant fan but still could have been ok and they cost...
