I am not a native english speaker, but I think that's what I meant.

I had a period where I saw bands regularly. From The Groundhogs in the back room of a pub in Croydon to Led Zeppelin at Knebworth. 

Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Iron  Maiden, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Rush, ELO, Rory Gallagher, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Marillion, Motorhead (several times), Elbow, Joe Bonamassa, The Damned, Dr Feelgood, Gary Moore, Matt Schofield, The Groundhogs and others that I can't remember for the moment!

The best were probably Pink Floyd - The Wall, Elbow at Cambridge Corn Exchange

Worst: Gary Moore - After The War tour and Rush - Roll The Bones tour.

It was the Rush gig at Wembley Arena that put me off going to big venues. I'd seen them twice before and they were brilliant musicians, but the sound at that gig was awful, so I decided that I'd had enough of the big venues!

Regret not seeing Bon Scott era AC/DC (although I did see a really good tribute band that played all that era stuff) and Stevie Ray Vaughan. He was due to play in the UK, but was killed before the tour.

Out of all of those I wish I'd seen Dr Feelgood as long as it was when Lee Brilleaux was fronting them.

madness at preston guild hall and the petshop boys in manchester

I've seen both of those Lionel.  Madness when they first came onto the scene, it was a scary atmosphere but great gig.  I've seen the PSB at Cardiff and the O2 Arena, absolutely great show both times.

Oh yeh.....Lee was the man!

I remember reading a review of them in the mid 70's (when they looked pretty strange with short hair at that time) and they described Lee as looking like "the demented car salesman from Hell".  :classic_laugh:

Used to be on a load of lists because reasons, seen far more acts than I'll ever remember.

The ones I recall the fondest:

  • Lou Reed, lazy sunny afternoon with pints of vodka
  • Neil Young, a god
  • Propping up Annie Nightingale when she was off her tits on drugs at a Primal Scream gig
  • Every Kirsty MacColl gig, a lovely lovely person and sorely missed
  • All The Ramones, only weirdos wouldn't have loved them
  • Ian McCulloch just after he stopped being Mr. Echo (*Young Ones reference)
  • Pixies at the Phoenix Festival, I was tripping balls at the time
  • Edwyn Collins scrapping with the Mean Fiddler's bouncers at Reading
  • Bowie, fuck me the man was a consummate showman
  • Motörhead, another god
  • Gary Numan since he got reinvented by Trent Reznor, especially the full orchestra gigs
  • The week I spent stumbling from bar to bar in New Orleans watching anyone play. Don't remember any of them but it was awesome
  • The Fall, when MES was married and the band consisted of musicians

The shittest:

  • The Fall, especially the ones where MES was pissing himself on stage
  • Chelsea, Gene October can go fuck himself. The kind of cunt who'd drive a van
  • Nirvana, hated every single one
  • Wizard - like, who told them they should make more than that single
  • Reformed Buzzcocks and their anti-punk 12-minute guitar solos
  • Sex Pistols/PiL, yet another ginge who is a complete cock
  • Anyone a promoter insisted I would love because they were about to become the next biggest thing
  • Radiohead post-Creep
  • Denny Laine's tedious post-Wings solo boreathon

Others will come to mind.

Unfortunately I saw them after Lee Brilleaux's passing. Saw a tribute band, The Feelgood Band, who are pretty good and kind of endorsed by the surviving members of the original band.

Another band I'd like to have seen was SAHB!

Alex Harvey was a major influence on Bon Scott! Incredible frontman!

 

Yeah, definitely would have liked to have seen them live. Mad as a box of frogs, though! 😂😂😂

My mind is fried when it comes to remembering things like this but i did remember a few today

Hawkwind in the Bristol bike show. It was blowing a gale and i was too pissed to go to the stage they did sound good from the beer tent though

Debbie Harry at kent custom show again too pissed 

Meatloaf at a sit down event somewhere which was weird but i was sober and he put on a great show 

I'm sure there is more but i'll have to ask the wife

I was usually out of it at these kind of gigs. 

Saw Joe Bonamasa here on my sixtieth. Back in the mists of time saw Groundhogs, Edgar Broughton, James Brown, Barclay James Harvest, Stone the Crows, Deep Purple  - I think, Black Sabbath, Horselips, and most of the Cardiff bands. I've seen Walter Trout three times or was it four? Saw bob Marley play in Auckland not long before he died. Secondary smoking was interesting. 🤪 Roger Waters Dark Side of the Moon tour at Sao Paulo. Youssou N'Dour in Dakar.  There must be loads of others that I can't remember.
