In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

Due to the many amazing guitar players out there, the term 'guitar hero' gets used quite often. In respect to Jason Becker the term doesn't even come close to describing the respect and admiration that many have for this young man as both a musician and human being. For those not in the know, due to the debilitating disease ALS, Jason has been robbed of his ability to play the guitar. However, as you can read at his home page, that has not stopped Jason from living life to the full and even creating new music.

The Songs
'Warmth In The Wilderness' is quite an amazing collection of music and musicians who have joined forces to pay tribute to a much loved friend and admired musician. The choice of tracks ranges from Jason's own songs, his time with Cacophony and David Lee Roth, and other songs written by other musicians with Jason as inspiration. It is quite a showcase for the tremendous work that Jason has performed and I'm sure he'll be impressed by the exciting renditions of familiar tracks and moved by those written in tribute. While most of the musicians taking part will ring a bell - Jeff Watson, Vinnie Moore, Marty Friedman, Mark Boals, Phantom Blue for instance - there are also a few new comers (at least to these ears) such as Tony Baena, Project Alcazar and Cyril Achard that really make their mark as well.

In Summary
As Danny Vaughn stated in the liner notes to this album, 'We have been inundated with so-called tribute records for the past 10 years which, quite often, amount to no more than a bunch of musicians patting themselves on the back. This project is a truly worthy effort and reflects upon what I think must be the intense spirituality of Jason Becker himself'. I couldn't have said it better myself. You get the best of both worlds with 'Warmth In The Wilderness'. Not only do you get a double cd of great music but you are also directly supporting Jason and his family as all royalties will be passed on to the Becker's. Well done to Lion Music and everyone involved. To Jason - keep fighting the good fight. Look forward to hearing the new album.
