I think sometimes if you try to play too technically, you lose something in the music - like you're playing for another guitar player. I like to play for people. The more sophisticated and mature guitarists become, the more they go with the feel.

  • Yep. I remember her from The Avengers.
    I threw me guitar out. Why bother? Why bother? Use it as a coffee table. Because I can't play it like that.

  • I thought she was hot as hell when I saw that Bond movie, when I was a kid. On her majesty’s secret service, iirc.

    she was also one of my favorite characters on Game of Thrones. Glad to see she had a long and cool career.
  • 82 is not a bad run, but that's sad nonetheless. I watched The Avengers so many times as a kid... I loved that series. Mrs Peel and her Lotus Elan were the epitome of swinging '60s English coolness. And what a cutie:

  • Elegant, sassy, intelligent, beautiful they don't make them like her any more.  Her character in GoT was a real scene stealer.  RIP
