Rick Wakeman was my firsy rock gig too. A cat thing perhaps? I'd been to a few classical ones, but Rick Wakeman doing "Journey" at the Crystal Palace Bowl with Gryphon & Procul Harum as support was my rock thing. Think I was about 6 or 7.

Also, I'm proud to say that I also attended Rick W's grandest folly, that being "King Arthur...on Ice" at the Wembley Arena. It's usually wheeled out in rock history as the nadir of prog's silly excesses but fuck it, when you're 8 and watching knights skate around and fight each other to bombastic Arthurian tunes, rock history can suck bum - this was ace!
And they did the entirety of "Journey.." as the encore! Result!
