Hi,

Yesterday (2019-01-29) Charlie played in Madrid with Chuck Prophet & The East River Truckers. It was an outstandig concert, with a majestic Charlie in "leader mode" with the.

Here's a bunch of photos. Most of you probably have never seen Charlie like that.

Thanks for sharing these photos - Great show!

I was in front of Charlie's pedal board at the Chango Club in Madrid. Long time admirer of his playing, was great to see him play at close quarters.

Pure rough and tumble rock and roll show, the clips on Youtube are great. When I walked up to the venue, Charlie was sat in the bar opposite having something to eat. Most of the band / crew walked in through the front door.

By the way, does anyone know what guitar Charlie was using (not the tele). 3 humbucking pickups, was bad ass!

I nipped over from London to Zaragoza for one night on this little tour. The four-piece band were in the cafe/bar next door beforehand (Charlie, Chuck, bass player and drummer); maybe 100-150 people there for the gig. Lots of audience interaction from Charlie, including walking through the crowd with mic asking people to sing a bit. He used just one guitar for this gig - a very different performer to the one who plays with Bob. Chuck P declined my request for Abandoned Love when asking for requests; he obviously wanted this to be a Stones tribute only. A fun time for 20 euros; pretty sure Bob would have enjoyed it. Was only rock n' roll but I liked it...

I was in Valencia to watch Charlie performing. He was powerful and electrifying and had a commanding presence. I was only six feet away. He was mesmerising. I watched his face, his hands, the way he tapped his foot, his big black glasses, the eyes behind the glasses, the way he held his guitar, the way he stood, his neat suit. Everything about him. Then, out of the blue, the most uncanny thing happened. He looked me right straight dead in the eye, and he transmitted something. Something, I didn’t know what. And it gave me the chills.

Cultural memory is working all the time: You notice all the references, quotes, and jokes of Dylanology by heart, I got that! But, what about Buddy Holly?
