I intended to start this at PSF but life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

This is the place to link songs by other artists that you yourself have played on stage.

I'll start with this track by Bruce Hornsby and the Range. I played this a few times with the '90s receptions band. The piano part is devilishly difficult to reproduce with all its ghost notes. I only got it 100% right once!

Going way back to my first electrified band (Midnight Blue, with my bro on guitar), I used to bang this out on an unamplified piano, which meant that by the end of the few gigs we did there was blood all over the keys and hammers scattered around.

I played this at least once in the 1980s as part of a duo in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, the other half of the duo, an otherwise very talented if criminally self-effacing singer-songwriter, used it to take the piss, which wasn't helped by the fact that I played the solo on a contact-mic'd spinet belonging to my wife. Pity, because for me the original is one of a handful of absolute rock'n'roll classics:

This stonker was in the repertoire of my most recent band for a short time:

I used to enjoy playing this song live. I also use to take the lead vocal on this track in our set from 2008-2011.

I love "The Kids Are Alright". It's a fabulous anthem for the ages.

The multi-talented Delbert McClinton was quite a favourite with "my" blues band. We used to play this one for a while:

Taken from his 1979 album, ""Rust Never Sleeps"".

The version we played from the album was not that one but this one, though (I got it wrong, lol!). This was track 4 on side 2, Hey, Hey, My, My (Into the black), not into the Blue if that makes sense. See link above....

OK, thanks. Songs by others that you've performed on stage Wink

Here's a Neil song I performed just once, with an occasional band regrettably called Troublegum. "Like A Hurricane" will forever remind me of a lacklustre birthday party in a cold hall with cold food--to say nothing of a belligerent **** of a bassist.

Lovely track though.

This is one I performed on a number of occasions on bass (!) with a 1970s covers band that also included my guitar-playing brother. The singer (who, incredible as it may seem, was the breadwinner in two families that were unaware of each other's existence) liked changing the words of songs on the spot, often giving them a naughty twist. In Alvin Stardust's "My Coo Ca Choo", I recall one of his verses was as follows:

"Fine, fine, I'm feeling fine,
There's a streaker coming down the line,
He's coming up to my bedroom tonight
To look at our coo ca choos"

This might not count? John will have to decide on that front. But this classic was pinned in our rehearsals, back in 2015, when deciding what cover would fit our fated sets never to be. After that we went on hiatus and have been ever since.

I remember it was fun to play!

This is one that's getting voted out of a PSF poll right now (yes, I've rejoined). "My" now-defunct blues band used to play "Mustang Sally" at every gig.

"Born To Be Wild" was one of just two familiar songs I heard while on holiday in Africa. My blues band used to perform the version by Etta James, combining it (as she did) with "I Just Wanna Make Love To You". This is the original by Steppenwolf:

"Stolen Moments" was the one jazz number the blues group used to play--which means I had to fake it, lol. I heard it today in the coffee bar of a children's bookshop we frequent once a week:

I performed this classic Foo's track live on stage back in 2006 with an old school band of mine. A cool track and a favourite of mine from their first album released back in 1995.

Back in the 1990s the receptions band I was in used to accompany "artistes". Generally speaking, these were either unknown (in many cases deservedly so) or had had their moment in the sun and were doing wedding and office receptions to make ends meet. One act that fell into the second category was Maywood, a female singing duo who'd had a few minor national hits. We accompanied them several times and they invariably opened with this song by Frankie Valli:

Incredible though it may seem, this was the opening track at a funeral service I attended today. In fact it was included for my benefit. "Pride And Joy" was a song "my" now-defunct band played at every single gig--so they'll be playing it at their farewell concert in a couple of months' time.

That's pretty cool. Would be interested to see footage or audio of your old groups.  Songs by others that you've performed on stage Tongue
