Live: John Mayer @ The O2 Arena

“My stupid mouth has got me in trouble, I said too much again” sang a young John Mayer on his debut studio album Room For Squares, released some 16 years ago now. And his ‘stupid’ mouth (read twitter in today’s age) is what the now 39-year-old guitarman is generally in the media for.

Live Review: Emmanuel & Taylor @ The Robin 2.

In 1910 a boy was born to a family of nomadic gypsies camped outside the village of Liberchies in Belgium. By the time of his death, only 42 years later in 1952, this boy, Jean Reinhardt, had become world famous as “Django”, possibly the greatest of jazz guitarists.The Colonel and the Governor decided it was time to release Pandora’s Box and open up these old songs, not just from Django, but many more of their heroes. A capacity crowd on a Mothering Sunday saw folk queuing outside on this bitterly cold night. The doors finally opened at 7.30 p.m....
