Now I know that I'm getting old.

 

Nothing on that list appeals to me.

 

I'll just have to stick with LVB's greatest hits.

Oh hard one they were all great for different reasons example saw The who at Parkead 76  along with Litte Feat Outlaws Streetwalkers and Alex Harvey That day should have been about The Who but for me and many others The SAHB stole the show.

Or Sinatra my Dads hero he had saw him booed off the stage in I think it was the Glasgow empire and here he was playing Ibrox My dad just sat there he even had a few tears in his eyes. In honesty Sinatra was done his voice had gone but his charisma was palatable

 

But as you have put me on the spot I will go for Bowies Spiders from mars. It just blew me away

It was a great day as I say for me the SAHB stole it. The biggest disappointment for me from a band I have seen many times was The Who's light shown it was still light

I unfortunately never saw the Beatles all together

No Motörhead

No Joy Division

Yes to Led Zep and John Bonham

No Blues Brothers

Yep saw Thin Lizzy with Phil Lynott 77 I think

Take it that was the Apollo Glasgow Mak? I caught them there when they headlined in November '75. Just checked & the support was Sutherland Bros & Quiver. Another one I was at was Uriah Heep...brilliant.

The wife bought me one a few years ago Norn, I couldn't get into it as it was sooooo deep and contained a helluva lot of stuff which I couldn't relate to. I gave up. I'm sure it was this one...
