    45 years ago this month I went to my first gig, My memories are not too hazy, considering I was 14 but I do remember being impressed by the size of the hall and I had quite a good view. I would return over the years to see Pink Floyd (twice including the first shows of The Wall and Oasis) Queen were underneath a giant crown which lifted up to reveal the band who blazed into Tie Your Mother Down, it was just brilliant!
    My abiding memory though is of my Dad taking me and my friend Ilya to our seats and telling us "I'll be back soon" and he didn't return for the rest of the entire gig. However we eventually tracked him down at the bar completely pissed where he confessed he thought "they were rubbish and too bloody loud" cheers dad!

      I wasn't even a year old yet when this went down.
