Sorry Disgruntled and Mondo,

Saw The Clash 17, maybe 18 times, 1977-1980...yes, they were that good!

Saw Joy Division for free at some pub in Manchester, 1977/8, too p1ssed/st0ned to remember.

Saw The Who in 1972, yep good.

Wish i'd been at Arcade Fire, St John's Church, Jan this year.

Bet someone on the forum was there, lucky bugger.

My housemate at the time was there with his girlfriend. Lucky bugger.

Saw the Smiths at Nottingham in 1985 with James supporting:becool:

Didn't see James as we were in the bar. Smiths very good technically but the gig on the whole was a bit flat. I suppose that's the thing with classic gigs - they perhaps weren't as good as you think they ought to be.

A couple of hours before the event, I was offered a pair of free tickets to see the Stones' Steel Wheels tour in Jacksonville, Fla where we lived at the time. But it was a red hot day and the seats were on the sunny side of the stadium, so I went for a sail instead.

Would have loved to have seen the Pixies, although, I'd have been too young in 1990.

Saw Frank Black on one of his solo tours while I was at uni though.

I missed Tool on their last tour, hopefully they'll come back soon though xx(

Would have loved to have seen The Smiths at their height.
Fortunately got to see The Cure many times so no worries there.
Wish I'd got to the Spiral Tribe rave at Castle Morton.
The Beautiful South have really grown on me over the last few years so I decided that I would go and see them only to find out that they had just split up!
Want to go and see The Coral, please don't tell me that they have split!!!
