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

He walked off the Reading stage when I saw him. Didn’t like the bottles of piss hitting him on the nose or something.

I've never really been into concerts and really dislike crowds so have seen very little live music.

I remember seeing The Boomtown rats at a theatre in London. They were playing in the interval in some show that my gran had taken us to see, i was far too young, about 8 or 9 I guess. I remember the song though, cos it was "I don't like Mondays" though I didn't recognise it till years later. 

I've seen various smaller bands at open air do's in my misspent youf,  I think I saw Blodwyn Pig but don't remember it, Phil collins with Phl bailey, Stryper, The Pogues ( in a pub in southampton) and Bob Dylan in Dijon about 20 odd years ago. French bands like Renaud before his voice gave out and Ultra Vomit live in the parc in auxerre, but no really big groups.

Dylan was... welll... Dylan not really a showman but genius lyricist and musicien.

the Pogues were fucking brilliant, but you have to like that sort of thing.

While I was still at school I saw Mott the Hoople at the Colston Hall (not allowed to call it that now) in Bristol.  My mate Jim was a wizz at getting backstage and we found ourselves in their dressing room after the gig.  I grew up very quickly with some of the shenanigans I saw going on in there until we got kicked out by their manager .  Ian Hunter was a really cool dude, he thought it was funny that we'd managed to sneak in.

Judas Priest

Dio

Girlschool

Fleetwood Mac

Saxon

Bay City Rollers

Status Quo

I'm sure there are a few I've forgotten. ZZ Top were the biggest disappointment. Fleetwood Mac and Heart were probably joint best performers. Status Quo made me laugh when they announced they had an album out called the Fourth Chord!

I saw ELO a few times too. They were actually the first band that I saw, when they did the Face the Music tour. Saw them at Wembley for the Out of the Blue and A New World Record tours.

Only saw ELO doing a benefit gig to raise funds for the new kids heart unit in Brum. Still absolute quality despite the lack of the light show.

Well the Bay City Rollers were very good. This was about 12 years ago, so probably not all originals.

At the same event was Showaddywaddy and the long haired singer seemed to be singing slower than the band were playing. He's now their manager I believe, the other singer died a few years ago.

Yeah, not keen on them, saw them in a pub called the Royal Standard, my late mate/boss was a big big fan and dragged me along. Some sweaty sock threatened me with the 'heed' just because I trod on his foot on my way to and from the toilet. Honestly, if you spend your life in a skirt dragging your bollocks through the gorse and brambles, a sore toe should be the least of your worries.

I knew I'd remember some more. Saw the Nolans at Butlins once, they were bloody funny. It was them or Roger de Courcy and Nookey bear, I think I made the right decision.

One of my work mates used to go to a lot of stag nights and Roger de courcy was at a couple back in the day with bollocks bear. He said he was very good.
