October 1970, so age 14, Tyrannosuarus Rex @ Birmingham Town Hall, back of the Upper Circle with John Leeson, in my newly tie-dyed 3-button vest (!)

can remember it vividly, unlike many subsequent gigs @ B T H, although some of my memories are:

Can - awesome

Amon Duul II - forgetting the songs, but signing my album covers

Family / Linda Lewis - Jim Cregan in luurrvve

Free - getting autographs & offers of trouser swaps from Paul Rodgers, poor old Koss totally out of it

reviewing Bad Company

Starry Eyed & Laughing - "God's own lightshow"

naughty rythyms tour - Kokomo rocked

to my shame, the afore-mentioned Uriah Heep

getting ripped off by Robin Trower - not being paid for humping & follow-spot work

I promoted a gig there, too, once, but can't remember what it was, though!!

BTH used to be a good venue.....chip in for the bus fare to Brum for someone to buy the tickets, no ticketb*stard, no booking fees, just a scramble for the last bus home sometimes.....OK, I'll get me (great)coat
