from the Seventies
Brian Robert Pearce
|Brian Pearce busked the streets
and bars of Europe between the years 1994 and 2000. In addition he
busked in New York while participating in the TIGHTROPE musical, a play
written by Ken Post [ with Bonnie Burns].
The journal exists, at present, as approx. 750,000 hand written words formatted in about 55 segments
does what it says on the
tin" ran an old commercial. EMERSON, LAKE AND PALMER certainly did
that, whether you were listening to an album or watching them live.
Just look at the quicksilver fingers of KEITH EMERSON as he scuttles
them over keyboards - all at a time when it was hard to make keyboards
sound good. Synthesisers were in their early days. By the end of the
decade (70's) groups were starting to get hits with a keyboard player
using one finger and seemingly half way through a course on 'How to
play the keyboard in 5 easy lessons". Synthetic drum machines were
becoming more sophisticated - and it became step by step programming
rather than brilliant musicianship for the keyboard player.
