Didnt we do this a few months ago.

Mine is still the Savoy Brown Blues Band, opening for Jethro Tull at the Dome Brighton in 1970.

Just thought of another thoughm again 1970, or could have been 1969 - Steamhammer at the National Jazz and Blues Festival held at Plumpton, yes really!!!.

Just to add value to the Savoy Brown Blues Band, or maybe devalue my taste.  My live gigs include Creams last, Hendrix three times. the Stones (Hyde Park et al), Led Zepp, Pink Floyd, Cap'n Beefheart, Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, with and without Sandy Denny, Rory Gallagher in Taste and without. Not a bad quick list but them I am oldCool

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac.

What a superb choice sparrow. The original. Peter Green was Fleetwood Mac. Too many songs to mention. That choice cannot be beaten imho.

Transvision Vamp had some energy in the day, not quite the same when last saw Wendy James live few year ago. Wonder why.
Reel Big Fish for a show and pure fun tho.

I was never much of a fan of Bruce Springsteen but there was a spare going in our group to see him at Wembley stadium, July 4th 1985 and I thought what the hell, I'll go.

It was easily the best live performance I've ever seen, he absolutely rocked the place senseless.

Never seen the Killers live but saw them the one NYE I was unwell and couldn't go out and the were the new talent showcased on Jools Holland's NY show.

You're correct there Longbridge, it was that tour indeed.
Like others on here I've seen lots of top bands but that concert was way beyond any other.

On a lesser scale I've  seen Carter USM many times at the Brixton Academy and always loved seeing them live as well.

I spent the weekend at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970 and there was some great music, but Chicago and Jethro Tull stole it.

Dylan at Earls Court the year he played Blackbushe

Springsteen at Wembley arena, might have been 85 like Slippy , he played Born in the USa on an acoustic with a slide, (that bit was s***,though). He finished with 'If I fall behind' with all the band singing their solo parts, Nils Lofgren sings like an angel (plays guitar like the devil)

Thin Lizzy at Lancaster Uni probably about 1977

Like John Smith now, folkie guitar player, seen him 4 times, best one in Leicester in a pub with about 20 people. Saw him first time when he supported John Martyn, another hero

I saw Depeche Mode a good few times and they were always excellent more so in the latter years with Ultra and Violator.

Awful news this morning is that the D.M. keyboard player and founder member Andy Fletcher has died aged 60.
