On the Back of the Ace of spades Thread, post a Concert you attended. This was probably the last time i saw Lemmy
Tom Petty first toured in 1977, supporting Nils Lofgren. I saw them at The Dome in Brighton. Could not make Hyde Park on his last UK appearance due to ill health. I was gutted.highlight of the day was Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. I think it was his first UK appearance; I also saw his last one.
Saw Motörhead a couple of times, one of the gigs had an after gig party that lasted 3 days, I could cope with it then , as I was used to all weekend parties and bike runs, that said, no idea how Lemmy lived as long as he did..........Saw motorhead on the bomber tour, early eighties. Best live performance i’ve seen was queen at live aid - freddy mercury had 80,000 people in the palm of his hand. Best “small” gig i ever saw was rory gallagher, again in the early eighties. What a player he was

Rush are my favourite band too. First saw them in the late seventies in stafford, then a few times over the next 2 decades. I started playing the drums when i was 15, my inspiration and hero being neil peart. I know it sounds trite but it felt almost like losing a family member when he died earlier this year. I still can’t quite believe it. If you want to see what drumming can really look like, just go on you tube and search for neil peartI saw napalm death in a venue the size of a small pub. They were bloody loud.
My most memorable gig was my favourite band Rush at the MEN. They played for over three hours without a break. It always staggered me that they sounded as tight live as they did on their records. Awesome musicians. RIP Neal Peart who died earlier this year.
