RIP x 2


Not a great week; drummer Jon Hiseman of Colosseum (etc) and guitarist Danny Kirwan of the second phase of the original Fleetwood Mac have both died. Hiseman certainly played Pompey, and I think maybe Kirwan did the Guildhall with Fleetwood Mac

  1. It keeps growing – now D J Fontana: Drummer for Elvis Presley.


  2. Hiseman certainly did play Pompey Guildhall. Can’t remember dates but I first saw him with Colosseum and the New (Youth ?)Jazz Orchestra, his wife Barbara was involved with them. Saw Colosseum later, again at the Guildhall, with the great Chris Farlowe handling the vocals. Both fabulous shows.
