    Seen the Specials, Madness , the Beat ,Paul Weller ,the Who , Boogie Down Productions , Funkadelic, Aggrolites, Dreadzone , M People ,Kaiser Chiefs , i could go on ...

    Stand out concerts for me was Funkadelic at Brixton Acadamy , the Who in Hyde Park and Specials at Hammersmith .
    Worst by far was Dreadzone at Shepherds Bush , spent the whole evening barging crusties out of the way, they were stage diving and generally being a pain in the a rse , i cant remember who persuaded me to see those soap dodgers , but never again !
    Rangers,Scooters ,Tunes and Trainers

    Rolling Stones, Springsteen, Genesis at Wembley Stadium. The Kinks at Hammersmith Palais. Johhny Winter at Hammersmith Odeon. Queen/Status Quo/Big Country at Knebworth Park are a few that stand out.
    Someone mentioned Squeeze earlier in the thread. Very underrated band IMO and very talented songwriters. Enjoy my friend.

    Would have loved to have seen them mate Nevermind is one of my all time favourite albums. Mate of mine went Reading festival one year to see a few various bands and little did he know Nirvana were playing in the big tent they have there (can't remember the name of the stage). He said most of the festival goes tried to cram into the tent!

    Saw madness at Finsbury Park many moons ago and Finlay Quaye was supporting them.
    The long and short of it was his set didn't go down too well with the crowd and his drummer launched his sticks at someone who'd been giving him abuse. They had to run off stage within seconds as about 2000 half full plastic pint glasses were launched back in unison. Madness weren't bad either !

    Seeing madness would be my pet hate. Hate them with a passion. I always think of Michael buble, 2 totally different acts but as #### as each other yet are popular with fans that clearly love cheese and zero taste
    I played sunday league football today.

    Clearly I was the best player on the pitch.

    I scored 5 and made 7 last ditch tackles.

    We lost 5-0 but the rest of my team were sh it!

    Saw Glenn Tilbrook at my mate's festival a few weeks ago - one of the highlights - it's a great little festival and cheap - £60 for the weekend - in lovely fields near Biggin Hill: http://www.hopefestival.co.uk/

    My mate's band The Ripoffs played Friday night, they are a fantastic punk and rock covers band fronted by Ben Darvill of Son of Dave. Their version of The Ace of Spades this time round blew my mind.


    PS I know what you mean about the Dreadzone audience Vesps, but I love their music!

    I'd put any man who doesn't like a bit of madness in the same category as those with a limp handshake or ones who don't like sport.
    Wrong-uns and not to be trusted.

    Seen too many bands to mention but primal scream are so good live. I rarely like music these days so generally go see older stuff. Have tickets got for cast and shed seven at a small gig in Nov, tickets bought for weller in March and will do my annual trip to Dublin to see ocean colour scene at the end of the year.
