Purveyor of Bollocks to the Crowned Heads of Europe
Nor did I see either of them. Lady M did see Hendrix in Brighton, and I became quite friendly with Paul McCartney, but otherwise a big oversight.
I didn't know you had one of the fab four as a mate.
You were in the Fens at the time with a woman so you missed him.I saw Hendrix in Norwich at the Orford Cellar circa 1968.
I was in the Fens with Brian Eno's ex-wife!
I saw Hendrix in the 60's in Leicester, and the Beach Boys, and The Who - missed The Beatles even though we queued all night. Saw the Stones too although we couldn't hear anything for all the screaming girlies.
I don't remember seeing anyone, but Ian Dury lent me his flat in Canterbury once - does that count?
Darling Tom,Is it heresy to say that we did not see Jimi Hendrix and had no wish to?!Beatles, Rolling Stones and Marlene Dietrich........we did see them.......our heroes!
Not from you two it isn't. I can't imagine either of you wandering around off your heads on acid.
Darling Tom,......,and we thought that you are a creative type! Just no imagination.......xxxxx
I need photographic evidence.
I missed the Sex Pistols in Cornwall in 77. They were billed as the Spots so they wouldn't get banned. Still kicking myself. Caught up with John since though.
My biggest regret was missing the launch of a space shuttle in Florida. I had a day off work, and I managed to sleep through the whole thing.
I saw the Pretty Things at the Mersey View. They were late as there had a been a 'bit of a brawl' somewhere. I can't remember much about it. I think I was into rum and peps at the time.
I saw Rum and Peps at the Lyceum once.
My daughter bought me a tacky fridge magnet that says... "I may be old but I got to see all the cool bands". She's jealous.
Whatever happened to Shawaddywaddy?
