no sharon , saw them at g-mex . i was doing back stage/pit security as a favour for a mate who was a manager for showsec . can't remember the year ( early 90's ? ) . the concert was something to do with sellafield . public enemy , big audio dynamite and U2 were also on the bill . it was abit of a surreal night . leathered aloads of pink champagne , got into a long conversation with graeme souness who was recovering from major heart surgery . was dancing at the side of the stage to U2 with flavor flav dancing next to me . loads of other mad shit happened , ending in driving over to leeds and ending up at a blues in chapeltown . i think i got back home around 10 am ?
just wish i was old enough to see kraftwerk when they first started out . one of the first pioneers of electronic music .

Lucky to see Ian Dury, Clash, early buzzcocks and many of the notable artists from 70's revolution.

Sadly, wish I had seen AC/DC with Bon Scott, early Van Halen line up, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Screaming Trees.

A boring old fart like me really wished I'd seen Alice Cooper when he was in his pomp in the early 70's. And Free. Lerve their songs to this day.

I did see Led Zepplin, the greatest band, ever (listen to it if you don't agree), David Bowie, Deep Purple, Black Sabbeth, Yes, Jefferson Starship, erm, Genesis, lots of others too, but the one gig that does stick in my head is when I lived down south and we drove to Worthing, went into a little club and watched a band called REM. They were OK, but everyone was taking the piss out of them.

Oh, how we laughed..........
