captain beefheart at guildford civic hall ooh over 20 years ago now. astonishing and got to meet him after. he signed my ticket which is still a prize possession. some lame-o geezer asked him to draw a giraffe for his daughter which the caotain did on a brown paper bag. when the guy looked at hime he said 'wow, that's amazing, nearly as good as van gogh.' at which capt beefheart took it off him and ripped it up. 'come see me again when i'm better than van gogh' he replied. my mate nyge taught captain the phrase 'fandabidozi' as a superlative. the krankies were big in our personal mythology all those years ago.

also notable were
joy division supporting buzzcocks, again at guildford civic
jane's addiction at marquue secret gig to promote ritual de lo habitual
brian wilson at birmingham symphony hall (twice, but first time's always the best)
squarepusher downstairs at blue note when he'd just started. literally (well not literally) tore the roof off
flaming lips at birmingham academy in 2002
rem @ wembly arena for green tour - i had a front row seat. stipe at his most charismatic
grateful dead at wembley for halloween. good seat and great acid bought in the car park
