CONCERT: Martin Barre and band in MusikTheater Rex MB Link The Locomotive snorts as ever... November 21st, 2014 Martin Barre and band in MuskTheater Rex - for 44 years played the gifted guitarist of Jethro Tull. BENSHEIM. Saving the Best for Last "Locomotive Breath". The guitar motif of known hits of Jethro Tullis part of the 1001 reefs that many - should have heard before now - live and played by master craftsmen. The opportunity to check off this "Must Hear" on his personal list, they were now in MusikTheater Rex: Martin Barre guested with his band in Bensheim.
Gifted Guitarist The talented guitarist was 44 years at Jethro Tull, that knows how it's done. As with every Jethro Tull live show was "Locomotive Breath" also in Barre and Co. of bouncers. Although he must have often performs the song about an eternal loser ("General Time Loser") throughout his career until you drop, turned Barre - a polite English gentleman at the age of 68 years with no airs and graces - the finale again fully on. Gigantic. "Locomotive Breath" was the final act of a remarkable varied concert.
Martin Barre tilled with Dan Crisp (vocals, guitar), Alan Thomson (bass) and George Lindsay (drums) various music genres: progressive rock, heavy metal, blues, folk - in some songs, the styles mixed into an interesting listening experience. The setlist followed essentially Barre's new album "Order Of Play", found on many Tull classics with a new look again:
Heavy Metal without Flute "Fat Man" in the heavy metal version, "The Minstrel In The Gallery", that works without the flute of Tull frontman Ian Anderson, the almost ancient "Song For Jeffrey", published in 1968, second single from Jethro Tull or an instrumental excerpt from "Thick As a Brick". Was covered also a little bit, about the Beatles ("All The Lonely People"). In "Hymn 43" featured Barre, Thomson and Crisp e-tools in the corner and plucked the strings of the lute. The Old English Folk moment of the occurrence. The Rex was enchanted from the start.
With one exception: Roland from Mannheim, a Jethro Tull fan almost the very beginning, there was initially little tingly. The rock-blues intro with "Watch Your Step" and "Steal Your Heart Away" him was insufficient Tull-style. "The likes mer net, the net I do more with long," he groused in slang the city square and said goodbye to the outside in a cigarette break. Just in time for the start of the old Tull stuff, the connoisseurs and proud owner of the Cult album Aqualung returned (1971) back. "Now kumme se", recognized Roland and himself came also in full swing. A bit of air guitar, a bit of headbanging without the red cap from the head fell - cool moves definitely.
That Martin Barre a guitar genius in general and the intermediate solos, which were often acknowledged with applause, is special, he showed every minute of the gigs. Or as Roland put it, "De Martin is good." The other three band members were also really good. Bassist Thomson brought his occasional solo runs the whole hall to vibrate. Designate Lindsay game on drums with dynamic, is almost an understatement; the drummer was the space-filling rhythmic panting of the locomotive during the evening.
The most difficult job had Dan Crisp, who had to endure the vocal comparison with Ian Anderson. Its mission sparked Crisp convincing - vocally and mimicry. Apparently Crisp has plenty of Ian Anderson clips inveigled, it pointed out in any event, certain similarities in facial expressions. Roland's comment to Crisps idea we save at this point. It was a fantastic event at the Rex, an encounter with a guitar legend in rock history. Sure, the Aqualung-LP is now retrieved from the cellar: The locomotive sounds always easy but good.

chester: Do any of you [my fellow JT Forum members] miss watching live sporting events on TV, because of the virus, as much as I do?

steelmonkey: I miss reading about the Golden State Warriors and St Pauli in the second Bundesliga. I keep an eye on the baseball 'A's and the Brazil team, Botoafogo. My EPL Team is Tot Spurs and I take the time to hate two teams :HSV in Germany and Man United.

maddogfagin: Miss the sport on tv especially the football and now that summer is upon us the cricket. I fear that things will take a year or two to get back to how it was before all this shenanigans.

steelmonkey: I miss some watching and reading about sports but not enough to suddenly get interested in the Belarus Football League or Taiwanese baseball. Fans are going pretty far for a fix.

pbinlostangeles: For us in So Cal, first time since 1974 no Long Beach Grand Prix and - apparently - no Indy 500. At least not on Memorial Day. Hopefully, they'll get this virus crud figured out before the start of MotoGP season

chester: NASCAR has restarted it's 2020 season but, like German soccer, to empty grandstands. I think catching a virus is low on the list of dangers that can befall a racing car driver.
