    I know what you mean about being spoilt at university back in the 70's. I remember one evening wandering out of the union bar one night and hearing someone playing guitar in the hall down the corridor. Got there, asked the woman on the door who was playing, and she said "Phil Manzanera" (he'd just released his "801" album).

    80p to get in. Those were the days.

    I'm getting my pension THIS month - and I'm not going to do a sad smiley because it's seriously good money (earned before they got mean about teachers' pensions )

    saw the Prodigy at Glasto in 1997 - there was a powercut and mud - could have seen them again in 2009 but they clashed with Blur or something :D

    Not to derail the thread but my first gig cost £1.50 and it was Hawkwind at the Liverpool Empire. I'm not so young myself.

    Enjoy your retirement though and keep taking the gigs.

    I'll be dead when I stop going to gigs :D

    I'm just working my way thru all these Youtube clips - thanks to everyone who posted them :)

    very nostalgic - reminds me how much I loved the Small faces when I was just a kid really - then the Faces AND how I listened to A Nod's as Good as a Wink and Never a Dull Moment every day when I was first at art school.

    later I moved on to David Bowie

    but I'll never ever forget Rod and the Faces :)

    albionism A successful virus clinging to a speck of mud.

    He totally skinned alive and buggered Tom Waits'
    Downtown Train.
    Tom Waits' version is hearbreaking.
    Rod's version is vomit inducing.

    Can anyone remember why he despised Eamon Andrews so much?
    Remember watching a documentary and he slaughtered Andrews.

    I LOVE Rod, and this is his finest hour IMO.

    His visible pube line is a lovely thing to witness over breakfast.

    Britt could do with a trim, as well.

    Ha ha.....a timely thread. I had a massive bust up with a mate's girlfriend in the pub last night because she put on Thunder's version of On a Broken Dream and said it was better than Rod's.

    She was sat there, dolled up head to toe in Mary Quant clothes as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ended up with me storming out calling her 'a fucking fraud'

    Suffice to say we won't be speaking EVER AGAIN. I've probably pissed my mate off as well. That'll be another barny later.

    One has standards!

    Life moves on...........
