Stolen from twitbook on 14:59 - Jan 31 with 1042 viewsGlasgowBlue

First Concert: David Bowie, Hammersmith Odeon1983
Last Concert: Rod Stewart, Glasgow SECC 2019
Worst Concert: Texas , SECC Glasgow. Dragged the Mrs and her family. Boring.
Loudest Concert: The Who, Wembley Arena 1989 or Yes, Glasgow Armadillo, 2002. Kasabian were pretty loud but it was in a small tent and we were up close.
Most Seen: Paul McCartney 3 times, Chic 3 times, Human League 3 times
Most Surprising: Take That at Hampden Park. They brought in the legendary Loleatta Holloway to sing Relight My Fire. She did the original with Dan Hartman in 1978 and it’s her vocals that are sampled on Black Box Ride On Time. A big favourite if mine who I thought I’d never see perform.
Best Gig: McCartney in 1989. The first time he has performed Sgt. Pepper, Hey Jude etc live.
Wish to have seen: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours line up.

First concert: Level42 UEA 1985
Last concert. Planet Rock Winter's End (Those Damn Crows, Sweet, Terrorvision) Feb/Mar 2020
Worst concert. White Stripes Hyde Park, the most boring live performance I have ever witnessed
Loudest concert. Stranglers - Oxford Apollo probably because I was leaning on the speaker stack.
Most seen. Iron Maiden (28 times)
Most surprising. Ocean Colour Scene - Wasn't expecting much as I'm a rock/metal fan, but they were brilliant.
Best Gig. Iron Maiden Brixton Academy 2007 - Two weeks after headlining at Donington, they crowbarred the whole stage show into Brixton as a benefit gig for ex drummer Clive Burr - amazing show and atmosphere.
Wish to have seen. Van Halen

First concert: Unsure, but probably a folk festival in Gloucester Docks headlined by Ralph McTell
Last concert: A Marillion tribute band, who played the whole of Misplaced Childhood as part of their set.
Worst concert: Several contenders, for various reasons, but the worst band is probably still Antiproduct (the best bit was when the singer fell off the front of the stage and unplugged himself).
Loudest concert: A Boat (student band, friends of friends), joint second place going to Motorhead and Ozric Tentacles.
Most seen: No idea, but probably various bands/solo performances featuring Jon Amor.
Most surprising: Possibly Lynyrd Skynyrd at Hammersmith, because the support act turned out to be a group formed from ex-members of Whitesnake, Bad Company and Ozzy Osborne's band.
Best gig: Too many contenders to rank them. From Jim Suhler in a tiny pub in Wiltshire to Dio supported by Uriah Heep in London.
Wish to have seen: Hawkwind in the mid 70s or about 1983. Bowie at Glastonbury (I was there, but working while he was on).

First concert: Thousand yard stare I think. Or James maybe.
Last concert. Ride at the Barbican, Nov 19. Was supposed to be seeing orbital at printworks last March when the virus was raging but we binned it as would have had the in-laws babysitting and thought coming back to see them from a sweatpit in central London was unwise.
Worst concert. Candy flip did a PA at a club night. They were half an hour late and played three tunes, two of which were strawberry fields. Never seen anyone else booed off stage in Guildford. The rest of the night was Fabio and Grooverider which was epic.
Loudest concert. My bloody Valentine. Fcking hell.
Most seen. Not sure. Either orbital, underworld or radiohead.
Most surprising. Went to see Franz Ferdinand with a mate who had a spare, wasn’t expecting much but they were great. Being turfed out into the rain after a fire alarm during underworld at the roundhouse shortly after the bataclan shooting was strange, the place went off when we were let back in though (an esteemed twtder also there went home and missed the end) Kylie joining nick cave on stage in Victoria Park was brilliant.
Best Gig. God, so many. LCD at G-A-Y just as daft punk was coming out. Kraftwerk in Reykjavik was cool as well. Orbital at Glastonbury in the mid 90s was mind blowing. Atoms for peace at the roundhouse.
Wish to have seen. The clash.

Trailing vapour since 1999.

I went to see Metallica on a stunning summer's day at the Milton Keynes Bowl.

Not realising that bloomin' Megadeth were one of the supporting acts.

First concert: Think it might have been Maiden, Seventh Son Tour, Wembley Arena, 1988. But I was also going to local gigs in Ipswich and Cambridge around that time
Last concert. Springsteen, Cardiff, 2013
Worst concert. Tie. Either Stereophonics. Just got back form Nepal and had giardia and the sh*ts. And the Kelly Jones just stood there and performed as if he was recording the album. May as well stayed at home. Or Def Leppard at NEC - tone deaf crap, painful to listen to it was so rough.
Loudest concert. Maiden, Sheffield, 1992. The bass made my balls ache - true that.
Most seen. Maiden probably.
Most surprising. Alice in Chains, Brixton. Wasn't into them at the time, but they were awesome.
Best Gig. Soundgarden/Faith No More/GnR, Gateshead Arena.
Wish to have seen. A big festival - Glasto as it' always on my b'day weekend or Monsters of Rock.

First concert: Genuinely can’t remember the transition from bands in pubs, to tribute bands at uni to gigs.
Last concert. Badly Drawn Boy at the Roundhouse last January. Almost an afterthought, he was very good and - as it turned out - that was my only gig of 2020.
Worst concert. Dead 60s in Camden, average band at best but it was the night before a Test match and I had as couple of mates down. If only they had been average, we stuck it out but then they tried a second encore.
Loudest concert. ?
Most seen. British Sea Power I think.
Most surprising. Kings of Leon at Brixton in 2003. Mate has asked about tickets months earlier but they got big during the intervening months, loads of people I worked with went to that and Liv Tyler went after the first screening of LOTR - all over the front pages. That was a good night.
Best Gig. British Sea Power at the Roundhouse in 2008. Started with a Bulgarian choir for The Great Skua and continued superbly throughout.
Wish to have seen. The Clash in the late 70s, I would have been about 3 though.
