    I never got to see Gary Moore live ( which I really regret), I managed to see most of the top players ( Hendrix, Clapton, Trout, BB King, Albert King) but always missed out on Moore :(.


    One of the best guitar shows was when I happened to be in Huntington Beach, California in the late 70's , some guys told us of a guy who copied Hendrix and was playing at a small club down on the waterfront. So we all trucked off there and he was absolutely brilliant, turned out to be Prince before he became a star. Never been a big fan off his since but brick he played a mean guitar.

    Dammit I had tickets for Interpol at Brixton but my wife couldn't be arsed to travel in (from Oxfordshire) for it so we didn't go. Women.

    I saw Kings of Leon at Reading Rivermead (like a school sports hall with those basketball hoops and wall bars!). And QOTSA there too come to think of it. I think. Seems bizarre now I think back

    Yep very underrated as a guitarist. He stole the show when he played Concert for George.

    The Smiths, Ulster Hall Belfast, May 1984. Aged 14. My first gig - still the best I’ve ever been to by a million miles, despite having been to hundreds since.

    Crap venue? I only went once when it wasn't being used for a concert or anything but surely its pretty good acoustically, historically, facility wise and location? Just asking.

    It's terrible acoustically.

    Lovely looking venue, but they've had to do so much just to get the acoustics neutral - that's what those mushrooms on the ceiling are for.

    Even then, it's just always been really flat - probably great for classical or something but not much good for rock.

    Recently they've tried to fake some character into the sound when they did their upgrade. They pipe reverb around the place and in from the back of the boxes but once you know it's fake you keep hearing it.

    Probably because it’s full of holes.

    Probably a controversial view, but I enjoyed seeing Axl's 'fake' line-up, circa 2010, much more than I did the 're-union' in 2017. The latter had a very artificial feeling about it to me - it just didn't feel quite right. It probably didn't help that despite being less than halfway back, we were about a mile away from the stage.

    So many...too hard to name them in any order or even memory...Ian Dury in 1980, Motörhead in early '82, any time I've seen Metallica in Mexico City (which remains one of the greatest audiences in the world), Underworld at the Fox Theater in Oakland years ago, incredible, The Pogues at the Barrowlands in '91...even though I am not a fan of the music per se, Lamb of GHod at Wacken a few years ago in the pouring rain with thick mud was an experience to behold (from the safety of the viewing platform) as the singer got the field to split into the muddiest wall of death I have ever seen, and then there was Nirvana in 1991 at the Cow Palace which was incredible (I had seen them in a small venue two years earlier but this was just magic)...one more for now? Motörhead descending from the ceiling at the Hammy Odeon, with giant suspension chains - that was true insanity and genius...

    Good GHod man, the barrow lands. Been to some great and some desperate gigs in there.
    Trans vision vamp (anyone remember them, or admit to it) and skunk anise, both end up in pitched battles.

    I've probably mentioned it before, Kate bush in 2014 is unbeatable for me, but I tell you who were brilliant live and I miss them, bare naked ladies. Not seen then since Steven paige left, but they were amazing live.
