There was a great programme on BBC4 on Friday night showing clips of Julian Bream from the early 60s through to the 90s.
Now I remember him being "the man" of the moment when I picked up classical guitar in the mid 1970s. I remember him being this outrageously ostentatious bloke driving old 30s sports cars etc. Also I remember his facial expressions whilst playing.
This programme though was a really good sample of his playing - he is a man with great tone.
Here is one of the things I found on youtube.
Made me think about getting the old classical out more and trying to knuckle down to playing that more... then the Les Paul called and I was seduced by the mistress of rock n roll - well Red Barchetta by Rush mostly... do you think that was a bizarre round the houses reference re the red sportscar of said Mr Breams?
