Re: ROCK & ROLL TURNS 50 ! ! !
Thanks, Setanta, for mentioning this!
Marshall and the other members of the Comets still tour, and are doing a European "Fifty Years of Rock and Roll" tour this summer.
The are already touring: since March (until May, I think) all over Germany.
[Oh, "Europe" it said :wink: ]
