Re: Not forgetting.....

I wished I'd seen that canal business!

I continued buying old fart stuff for some time - think I bought Freehand the same day as I got Metal Box!!

I ditched some stuff in the late 80's after a gig we'd played in front of a smelly audience, and to piss them off I took the piss out of Deep Purple and - without telling the rest of the band - suddenly inserted the Smoke on the Water riff into our lengthy Joy Division like dirge entitled, erm, the Illness! Good times ; )

Although there were a few people into us (folks in REM t-shirts!) I have to say that the overall hostility from the audience was exhilerating!!

Anyway, it seemed like a good time to get rid of some old stuff and my Purple stuff was amongst the stuff that went. And whilst it'd probably be fun to hear DP In Rock again, I can't say I exactly miss Stormbringer!
