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!
