But that's not exactly what I'm saying. I'm saying the album is awful, not a sell-out. All the people who are buying it because it's trendy, are in for a very rude awakening.

I know Genesis sold out, I'd say after Gabriel left. Peter Gabriel I have a lot of respect for, but Phil Collins I really don't like.

Golden Earring?! Are they still going? Radar love - What a song! :lol:

I had tickets to see the stones in the early 90's. Drove to Wembley only to be told by a policeman that the gig had been cancelled because one of the band had cut his hand. The gig got re-scheduled but right in the middle of my exams so I had to miss it.

Look on the bright side, they'll still be going for the next 30 years, so you can see them anytime you are free. :lol:

You lucky thing, seeing Adam and the Ants! They are so cool 8)

Saw Billy about 3 years ago I think. He hasn't aged at all. Still got it! This was me: :shock:

A pleasant song sung by a bunch of old men which needed a 1 minute guitar solo from the guy with the double guitar (which probably was a bass anyway) to make it into a classic.

This was a classic! (love the 70s clothes)

While idiliy Googling my username one day I discovered that there is a Dutch Acid Techno (whatever that is) band called Tonyblack! 8)

My Dutch friend introduced me to a Belgian group that are really good called Lais. They are a folk group, but I like folk music. :wink:

Don't think so they didn't even shout RADAR LOVE! :roll: Maybe they didn't brought XTC with them :wink:

When the lady smiles is a classic the end 8)

Feegle Rock :lol: Those SChelmish guys just have to paint themselves blue and then they would be proper Feegles

A freind and I saw Adam & the Ants play 2 or 3 times. :D Got really lucky one year when a friend's sister let us know that he was staying in the hotel she worked in and was having dinner in the restaurant. So, somewhere around here I actually have a picture of myself with Adam. :lol: Lucky you geting to see Billy Idol! I would LOVE to see him. He used to make my knees weak. :oops:

The only way I got to see Adam and the Ants was on my cousins cable television. In fact, other than Foreigner and Cheap Trick that was pretty much it for my college days and my mothering days until my oldest turned 14... egads... NO, I Refuse to feel OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There, I said it... LOL actually taking my baby sister and friend and my youngest to see some of the kewlest bands in the world made up for it. Weird Al Rocks... I even hollered "Marry Me!!" during a lull in one of the songs... my son was shocked, but too young to be humiliated by me. tee hee! I am doomed to feel 17 forever. Like the Dean thought to himself in Soul Music... he couldn't actually remember being 17 but he felt like it now, like under your skin was a Red Hot Vest. That is pretty much like I remember it.

My grandmother was chiding me once when I was about 22 and she was 67, she told me to remember my birth control pills, and I was mortified to hear her say in a southern accent... "I remember the Fire" (Fire being pronounced Fahr) I said something like "Oh Grandma" and she just shook her finger at me and let me know that she really did remember it. :oops: I can only hope to embarrass one of my grandchildren the same way. I allmost gave my youngest a stroke when I told him to do more than knock before blundering through my front door, because we might be "busy" the look of shock was hilarious, and even funnier was the loud "Don't EVER say that to me AGAIN!" Muahahahahaha!! Children these days... tch tch tch :lol:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.
