Regret never seeing The Who live during the 60's
Prodigy - Brixton academy 2007
James brown or the Chemical brothers - the first cos he just went on for ages and quite frankly was SHIT and the 2nd cos it was full of lairy pill heads!! Not pleasant
No regrets i don't think, glad I've seen elton john, would have been cool to see the beatles live, like my mum in The Cavern, she rocked out!!
Best gig - Rammstein - nearly lost my eyebrows but they were amazing
worst gig - QOTSA, my ears were bleeding
Gig you regretfully missed -Would have loved to have seen Nirvana - Missed them at Reading
Gig you were lucky to see before they split - NIN - if he is actually going to hang up the keyboard but he is always saying that.
Marty, Mr Shimms loves Tool, he would love to see them live
Best gig - toss up between Eberhard Weber, Jan Garbarek & Nano Vasconcelas at Gardner Arts Centre, Sussex Uni and Elvis Costello at Glastonbury Festival.
Worst gig - probably Queen at Taunton Odeon '75 or '76 - Freddie had lost his voice and they were truly dire.
Gig I missed - Terje Rypdal at Brighton Poly.
Lucky to see before Jerry popped his clogs - the Grateful Dead at Wembley Arena.
Shimmy, Tool were amazing, even my better half enjoyed it, she like the way the lead singer moved - whatever that means!
Nick, good shout for Sugar, I have both Copper Blue and Beaster on my iPod, they help when i'm getting lethargic.
The Who would have been good, obviously with Keith Moon and co.
worst gig: U2 Zoo station tour. NEC. queued up for tickets overnight as well!
Best gig & a complete surprise: Steve Winwood, B'ham Hippodrome 2008. every song a classic.
Led Zeppelin at Knebworth was great also but Steve Winwood, wow!

Marty, ooh a gig that we would both like then?

Worst Gig: Siouxsie and the Banshees, Coventry early 1980s
Gig you were lucky to see before they split - The Jam, Coventry early 1980s
Best: Walk A Thin Line at The Fridge in Shrewsbury. A local band doing a Blues Brothers take-off, but they were great.
Worst: Oliver Mtukudzi at The Barbican - over loud and totally boring, left before the interval.
Regretfully missed: Cocteau Twins at the Coachella Festival, cos they changed their minds about reforming after I'd bought non-refundable festival tickets and transatlantic flights.
