Yes, he played on Seville in 1991 with Dave Edmunds, Robert Cray, Bo Diddley, Steve Cropper, Albert Collins and B.B. King.

I remember seeing this on Channel 4 one night, did it ever get released on DVD?

It was great to see Joe Walsh wiping the floor with Satriani and Vai. I remember that much!

Did this ever get released on DVD? I came accross it on channel 4 some years back, and thoroughly enjoyed it..

Just posted this, but it didn't work, so if it appears twice, sorry..

surely there are jazz elements in the drumming on say "bedtime bone"(along with some serious

technique and syncopation)and other songs of man;improvisatory elements that, using a more universal

meaning of the word, fall into a category of jazz.if you look through the records of the early 70's, you're

going to find a lot of different kind of music(and drum styles) in the "jazz"section of the store,stuff people

now call fusion.but it was happening before it had a name and some people looked at it as jazz at the

time because they didn't know what to call it,how to promote it,it was new.jazz

can mean lots of things(i think the beatles and ringo are a little jazzy too. how about that?by the same

token i think the modern jazz quartet were psychedelic on their apple records) ...i personally

do feel the jazz in terry william's playing at times-love and peace-davey

This posting is taken from Youtube Dave Edmunds/Rockpile....

 "I saw Dave Edmunds perform live earlier this year . In the audience was Terry Williams although he didnt perform. . I met them both separately in the theatre bar afterwards .I had taken along 3 albums for signing by Dave so having Terry there was a bonus. Dave refused to sign the Rockpile group LP although he did sign his own. ( Also there was Andy Fairweather-Low ). Terry told me there were `too many issues` for the original Rockpile ever to reform."

I've always thought Edmunds is odd - that confirms it!

I'd forgotten that Chuck Leavell was playing in the backing band. Now there's a man who also needs a chapter in the rock book of fame.

There's a shock. Somebody must have opened a pair of curtains or an envelope.....

I think TW has another talent - one that doesn't usually get a mention. He is also a strong backing singer and started adding harmonies from the 'Slow Motion' tour onwards to compensate for the loss of the third voice following MM's departure. His vocal presence can probably be most notably detected during the chorus of 'C'Mon' on the Keystone CD - you may notice a harmony voice that isn't on earlier versions.

Didn't our Tel tinker with a synth from behind the kit at some point?

Yes, again to compensate for the departure of MM and he used it during the middle section of 'C'Mon' on the 'Slow Motion' tour.

I think it was Clive's synth (who was living in TW's basement at the time) and therefore likely to be the same one used on the 'Buzzard' album.

Once 'TWC' line up had been formed, Terry's synth playing days were over but his vocal talents were retained.

Was it Clive or his synth in the basement? I think we should be told!  ???

I think TW had his own synth - he's clutching a Moog cardboard box in that Christmas 1973 gang picture in Deke's book...

As for TW's harmonies, best illustrated on "Babe I'm.." on Max D. Someone (I think it was Micky but can't be arsed to check) quips "Didn't know he could sing, did you?" at the end!
