Softening my opinions with time
I first came across David & Mark on OGWT. I must say being a Rock,Metal, Pub Rock, Rock’n’Roll fan,I often saw my favourite acts getting withering,sarcastic reviews etc and feeling, it was generally open season at the Beeb, on the above genres. Un-trendy Rock dinosaurs like Jimmy Page & Roy Harper got the treatment! I always loved Keith Richard’s “Ming China” response .. Messrs Coverdale & Gillan separately replying around those times with elequence, in the case of the former and barely contained anger,to another OGWT presenter. That was then and this is 2023. I think the tone of David & Mark’s interview with Bernie Marsden was just right. Bernie R. I. P, was no Heavy Metal thicko and easily won David & Mark over when he recounted his start from Village Halls,Pubs, to joining Rocks first division from the mid 70’s.Recent episodes on my early musical heroes like Chuck Berry & Jerry Lee Lewis were coming from the right place, retaining enough focus on their talents rather than dwelling on the more sensational aspects of their private lives. The hackles still rise, when I think back but I am on board fellas, with my comb over!

David and Mark seemed to be ever present in my musical upbringing and it’s great to see they’re still going strong after all these years. A must for anyone, especially the over 50s and those...Read full review »
