Screaming Lord Sutch...Majestic ballroom 1964. He was a monster raving lunatic.

The Beatles...Gaumont Wolverhampton 1963. Couldn't hear a thing because of all the screaming.

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.

You bet...we paved the way for all the free love and permissiveness you guys enjoy today...not something to be proud of now

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!

ooh, I saw the Zoo Station tour at Wembley, I loved it.  Salman Rushdie turned up, didn't expect that.

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

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.

Lucky to see: Girls At Our Best, Wolverhamption Polytechnic
