    Saw him do a solo acoustic set in The Round at the Royal Exchange Theatre and again at Oldham's Queen Elizabeth Hall a year or two later.

    It sounded like there were at least 3 people playing, he is a brilliant guitarist.

    Britain's finest living guitarist?

    I saw Graham Parker & The Rumour in 1977 atr Lancaster Uni. I'd forgotten just how good they were until I came across this performance of essentially the same set list on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzxzHA3zliw

    Maybe not everyone's cup of tea, but these guys could really play!

    I've heard that he's struggling to play due to old age.

    I agree, even though he did buy my cousin, a session musician, a brass guitar for his 40th birthday.

    He's toured with Clapton several times.

    Andy's a very good guitarist himself.
