Yeh the best ones usaually cant remember.


It may seem odd to the younger peeps the amount we did as younger folk.


But we had no MTv,ipods, mp3's Video hits n whatever.


The live scene was it & only it.


Would love to have seen Rainbow in that era mike.


My 1 regret in life is never seeing Bon Scott live.

Luckily being a guy I am in no danger of the hand in jeans thing :D Unfortunately, being I dunno 5 ft 8/9 maybe, fat people seem to like standing in front of me at concerts grrrrr! They seem to be everywhere I will watch a support band and think wow I have an OK spot here then just before the main band comes on pow! Like magic they appear.

We all left Glitter of our lists....... ;)


Funny enough last week I was at the electrical store (Laines of Cheddar) that shopped the twit when they were doing some work on his computer and found...well, you know what they found. It's a Tescos Extra now, though Laines still runs from a building round the back. If it hadn't been a Sunday I'd have gone in and shaken someones hand!

Almost slipped me mind...LOL...I saw The Steve Miller band, some some time ago & it was well, Steve Miller, Cool, mellow yet rocky in its own chilled out way....The Audience responded with much the same atm0shphere & Damned Great it was 2. A real pleasant vibe.


However, their was this 1 whacker right up the front who had obviously slipped the wrong drug fo the wrong occasion & was just giving it the full intense Phsycodelic washing machine like thrashing & bashin, rock out wild thing perfomance of his own.


This Tripper went OFF like a rocket for a full cple hrs in this most mellow & ambient mood of places & besides the Biker I once watched Vomit in his own meal, then continue eating as if nothing happend is right up there with the best things ive ever seen in public.

From my many years in Germany, he made a personal appearance in Munster at an open air shindig in the park. Did three of his 2,000,000 no 1's he has had over there.


He was awful, but the reason I mention it was because the Hermans were going nuts for him and it has stuck in my mind like a bad car crash.
