As the Easter holiday meant missing out on Barbershop Quartet Day (I know, how could we?), it seems only right that we start this shortened week thinking about assorted four-piece groups and ensembles.
Naturally, I’d like to know who makes up your fantasy rock standard consisting of two guitars, a bass and drums. If you’d like to replace one of the guitars with a keyboard or any other instrument, please be my guest, but please don’t state the obvious; most people accept that Pink Floyd were a fairly decent band.
I’d also like to focus on singers. Your dream vocal quartet consists of David and…? What would they sing? Who could cut it with only a casual accompaniment of simple instruments, such as tambourines and maybe the odd harmonica?
Thinking back to the ‘On an Island’ tour, it’s hard not to include David Crosby and Graham Nash in any fantasy line-up when you recall their perfect harmonies on ‘Find the Cost of Freedom’, but remember that we had the additional talents of Mica Paris and David Bowie in there, as well.
Throw in your long-time favourite vocal quartets, too. Here’s one of mine, complete with obligatory (bad) dancing and screaming – The Four Tops.
Please note that tomorrow’s chat has been brought forward by one hour, so doors now open at 12:00 (UK). If you’ve never visited the chatroom before, do call in.
