Doing It Unplugged

Tuesday night The Stereophonics played an invite-only intimate acoustic gig at The Hospital (and fortunately I had an invite).

Seeing a band stripped down like that always reminds me of what it’s like going it alone in business. If you can do it unplugged, if you have the raw materials and talent to pull off a great performance without the full backing band, then you’ll be a success. In business and in entertainment.

The Stereophonics pulled it off, with a great set showing they undoubtedly have the raw materials required. And proving that however talented you are, you sometimes need wiser and older mentors to collaborate with, Ronnie Wood joined Kelly Jones for an encore of The Beatles’ ‘Don’t Let Me Down’.

A mix of old and new that worked a treat….
