    Hi guys,
    after lurking for some time just had to write. Yes, love the 60s, 70s rock music - Deep Purple my fav band.

    I used to be a permanent fixture at Woodstock (Far East Plaza), Zombie (Orchard Towers) and this place next to Paramount Shopping Centre, can never remember the name Owner a very tall chinese chap who sometimes plays the drums - Ben I think.
    Sadly all these places are gone. Now playing my CDs very loud at home and bothering the neighbours.

    Please post any new venues for classic rock - need to spend my evenings constructively

    by the way, if u ever in tokyo, check out:

    http://www.tokyo.to/bauhaus/index.html

    Japanese rock band plays 70's/80's rock. The lead guitarist who doubles as a waiter cum bartender, plays a mean lead (esp on Deep Purple nos.) and he's in his early 20s.
    Quite amusing to listen to them singing english songs phonetically.
    ...and they welcome anyone in the audience to jam with them during their sets.

    I was there a couple of times.....one of those no-frills cult pubs
