    'Saw them live on the first venue of the "No sleep 'til Hammersmith" album tour (West Runton Pavillion) in March '81. My first ever live gig....:cool:

    The "Bomber" lighting rig hanging just feet above our heads & the PHENOMENAL volume was like...

    FUCK ME!

    I love their music, 'though I still have to crank-up the volume knob as far as my system will allow to actually "get" the feeling of what they did back then, when I had just turned 16...

    RIP

    You have to crank it up cos you’re old and your hearing’s gone.

    RIP Eddie

    You just don't get this level of professionalism from musicians nowadays.

    Give it time.....

    That level of "Professionalism" is what I loved about the boys. Met them a couple of times & they were always totally smashed (often before a gig) , but always amenable, approachable, up for a chat & loved their fans. They were just LIKE their fans, only on the other side of the stage.

    How many "big" artists do you get these days that will be in the audience & having a beer with everyone else, whilst their support acts are on stage?
