Default Re: Pick Withers

For those interested in seeing/hearing what Pick was doing as late as a year ago, go to Youtube and search for "Pauline Black" and/or "Blue Jazz Trio". There are some video clips of Pauline Black and the Blue Jazz Trio that were recorded a little over a year ago with Pick as the Trio's drummer. Youtube also has many clips of early Dire Straits featuring Pick. One discovery was "Eastbound Train" - I had never even heard it before.

Pick is at the top of my list of favorite drummers and as someone else has said, Dire Straits was just not the same after he left. I especially liked his playing on "Water of Love". It is good to see that he is still playing.
