yep, that it is. All that blasted energy I see at the markets with young ones running amok, doing nothing that seems constructive but having all that energy. If only we could have one day a week like that when we grow up, without physical repercussions. :sigh:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Apologies to all the bands I’ve forgotten due to the excess of alcohol and strange cigarettes

The first time I saw Led Zeppelin I paid 12/6d for the ticket. I paid 15 shillings to see Pink Floyd the first time around. I saw The Eagles in Canada and the tickets cost $20.....Recently The Eagles played the MEN Arena in Manchester and the tickets were from 60 quid. I’d love to go to more concerts but with bands charging that kind of money I’m forced to wait for the inevitable DVD to be released.

I used to have Ten Years After Live double album. That Alvin Lee could play a mean guitar.

Were you at Knebworth to see Zeppelin? I was - first concert, with Chas and Dave! and other assorted dross.

Apart from Dire Straits I don't think any of the rock dinosaurs you mentioned started after 1970, did they?

Mind you I used to like Focus.

My first answer would definitely be: NOT ENOUGH :twisted:

Those that I've been to in no particular order are though:

Siouxsie and the Banshees
Rammstein (supported by Clawfinger)
Sting x2 (the only time Sting and Rammstein are going to be next to each other on any list... One of the Sting ones supported by Alanah Miles and then Page&Plant - the most boring supporting act ever!)
Depeche Mode
The Cure
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Einstuerzende Neubauten (13 years waiting for this one)
The Sisters of Mercy (12 years waiting...)
Die Toten Hosen
OMD (very little I was, can hardly remember)
Clan of Xymox (allegedly, too small to remember)
The Legendary Pink Dots (not exactly... didn't get in, had to stay outside, but the windows were open and the company was fun :)
Simple Minds (now, that's what I call disappointing)
Echo and the Bunnymen (Bingley Festival last year, just wanted to hear The Killing Moon live :)

And I got a free ticket to Tina Turner once so I went just for the sake of it. But she sang We don't need another hero so it was allright.

And hopefully Gary Numan next Wednesday!!!

Morning Poohcarrot,

I never made it to see Led Zeppelin at Knebworth. I saw them in the very early days at Owens Union, The Free Trade Hall, St Georges Hall and the Hard Rock all in and around Manchester.

The first concert I went to see was Pink Floyd performing Atom Heart Mother at The Free Trade Hall and I think that was 1969 so most of the bands I saw started mid sixties and the beginning of the seventies. Notable exceptions being The Who and The Stones who have been around forever!

I’m now closer to my sixties than I’d like to be but can still just about remember some brilliant performances.

I agree Alvin Lee was a bit handy!

I thought Focus were a good band and saw them at the Hard Rock but I do remember very clearly being disappointed with their performance. They really couldn’t handle Hocus Pocus live.

I think the best concert I saw was Led Zeppelin’s Manchester gig to promote Led Zeppelin 4 that would have been 1971. It was so good I went and got a ticket for the St Georges Hall gig the following night. It would have around that time I started to go deaf :lol:

Happy days.

I'd say... A decent band with a few very good songs and one of the biggest indie anthems of the 80's but I wouldn't understand how they could be someone's favourite band :) Just not enough charisma and cult following for me :)

”Mac remains the thinking person's rock icon, exuding an effortless cool, alien otherness, and unmatchable quotability. The sheer emotive expanse of his vocals is inimitable, and his unique (often oblique) lyrics are equal parts Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, metaphysical metaphor, and Scouse smirk.”

Am I the half of half-and-half
Or am I the half that's whole?
I've got to be one with all my halves
It's my worthy earthly goal
It's my worthy earthly goal
It's my worthy earthly goal

Are you the heavy half
Of the lighter me
Are you the ready part
Of the lighter me

When I came apart
I wasn't made of sand
When you fell apart
Clay crumbled in my hands
Long way a life load
Statues and haloes

Am I the half of half-and-half
Or am I the half that's whole
Am I the half that's whole
Am I the half that's whole

Are you the wrongful half
Of the rightful me
Are you the mongol half
Of the cerebral me

When I came apart
I wasn't made of sand
When you fell apart
Clay crumbled in my hands
When I came apart
I wasn't made of sand
When you fell apart
Clay crumbled in my hands

If we exercise just some control
When we exercise our sum control

Oh isn't it nice
When your heart is made out of ice
Oh isn't it nice
When your heart is made out of ice

Are you the heavy half
Of the lighter me
Are you the ready part
of the hesitant me

Am I the "shall" in po-ten-tial
Or am I the "suck" in "cess"
Pools of delusion
Deluge me
Am I the more or less
Am I the more or less
Am I the more or less

When I came apart
I wasn't made of sand
When you fell apart
Clay crumbled in my hands
When I came apart
I wasn't made of sand

When I was the Cain
You were the Abel
When I came apart
Clay crumbled in my hands

:D Sheer class! What more can I say?

See, I'm not that much into lyrics. I forged my musical taste (mostly) before I've learned a word of English and that's how it stayed. Music and the sound of the voice is all I'm concentrating on.

I've decided to take over this thread for the evening.

This is a wonderful song;
