Man - General Discussion / Will Youatt memorial show
« Last post by Michael Heatley on Today at 01:05:59 PM »
This will take place at Briton Ferry Rugby Club on Wednesday 11 July. The midweek slot is to let as many musicians as possible pay their respects.

Details cut and pasted from Facebook.

This is the event page for the Will Youatt memorial gig which will be held next month on Wednesday July the 11th. It is sure to be a brilliant event featuring some wonderful bands and guest performances from many. We are hoping it will be a chance to pay celebration to my father Will Youatt, who sadly passed away last September. This event is going to be an opportunity to hear some of Will's best loved and best known songs played by some of his closest friends and musical colleagues as well as some cracking sets from some incredibly talented bands. It is a 5 entry fee on the door with all proceeds going to British Heart Foundation, as well as the proceeds of the charity raffle as well.

Please share this far and wide!! I am looking forward to seeing the many familiar and happy faces there, as we come together to celebrate my farther's life and music. Thank you all, Ben.

Yes, I kinda think we have to move on now and judge the various bands on their present merits, not on how they fell out.
I haven't seen Man since they last played Scotland, whenever that was. They were a 5-piece on a tiny stage and pretty good then, although possibly a bit dispirited at the end of their first UK tour since the split. But I don't think anyone would disagree that any Man band without either Micky or Deke lacks the magic that they brought. Phil was magnificent, but without them he looked rather isolated.
I have seen Son of Man only once and a few years too. At the risk of sounding like my dad, it was so loud in the Garage that I couldn't hear much detail, tbh. They seemed rough at the edges but again, they sounded pretty good.
As for a merging of the two, maybe a Happy Daze Crew type arrangement would be fun, different combinations playing different source material and sharing equipment.

This is ludicrous and disrespectful. He wants to cop on. One of four bass players in a band that comprised dozens of musicians, claiming the name? Its the Martin Ace band, not Man, and never will be. He wants to take his head out of his arse.
Okay so we have been down this road a lot before,everyone has their opinion.I last saw Man in Germany in 2013.Phil was with them and he was brilliant on the night,it looks like Man have not replaced Phil-Man always work better as a 5 piece.I had a superb night,they went down very very well with a good sized crowd.James Beck is a wondergul guitarist and you will have a good night at one of their gigs.

Yes sad news.I saw Jon Hiseman on the drums with the reformed Coliseum at the Canterbury Fayre show in 2000-Man were also on the bill.I knew nothing about Coliseum but they did put on a very good show.The crowd seemed to know their songs.The highlight was a tune called "Lost Angeles"

Most of the venues the band play now would never be able to accomodate that many musicians on stage !
Whoever the new guy is he brings the average age of the band down.

Nope,Joan,  four guitarists reminds me of Lynyrd Skynard, or Doobie Brothers live. Would describe neither as " fun".

But why doesn't some-one from Man, on Man's own facebook page, condescend to tell the expectant hordes who the new drummer is ? ( and whether they are looking for / have secured a keyboardist to tour with )? ! A bit shabby ( cf. " Tidy")......

Am I the only one who has thought about the day Martin leaves Man? (whatever the reason is) What then?
Could it be possible to mix Man and Son of Man? We could reunite Jones jr. and Ace jr. with Bob on drums.
Four guitarists (George, Glenn, Josh and James), Bob, Ritchie, Ray and Marco. Sounds great 8)
