And that led me to thinking about another cheery little ditty about the times we lived in during the 70's and 80's:
Saw Greg Lake and Gary Moore at the Winter Gardens on the tour to promote this album. What a night, two fantastic players doing what they do in a hot, smoky, packed auditorium, 17-year-old me stood front and centre loving every second and going home with a couple of Gary Moore's plectrums (plectra?)
Bournemouth Town Hall was another place to watch bands.
I saw this band there. The Pirates.
Mick Green could play rhythm and lead at the same time.
Many have him as their favourite guitarist, Wilko amongst them.
