  1. Fantastic rock instrumental from some of my favourite musicians . Francis Monkman great as ever ! Bring on Sonia Christina oh yea xx

  2.  I saw these guys when I was very young, with Herbie Flowers sitting on a giant "teapot" playing bass – a pleasure and a privilege. John Williams was my inspiration for playing classical guitar!

  3. Very Nice. A good combination of pictures to go with what the music evokes — spooky, romantic and whimsical. I use do the same kind of thing, but now I have actually stepped in front of the camera to do my Count Vlad live… sort of.
