Not saying the best ever but Tyketto's debut appearance supporting White Lion in 1991 made a stunning impact.

My latest bugbear is people using Ipads to take pics or video, compeletely blocking any view. There was a particularly objectionable woman near the front at Rockingham last year annoying all and sundry.

Having just played 'Music and Me', is the intro the same as Survivor's 'Popular Girl'? The one the springs to mind is Bon Jovi's 'Saturday Night Gave me Sunday Morning' sounding like 'Gotta be Somebody' by Nickelback.

I went to this one as well which was a great night. Of the other American Dream shows saw Bang Tango, Badlands, The Scream and Shadow King. IIRC, as well as Valentine, Shooting Star was one of the ones that got pulled. I would have killed for that. 'Its not Over' era.

One you may have missed- a couple of excellent co-writes on the Doobie Bros early 90's album 'Brotherhood'- Under the Spell (link here) and Divided Highway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGxu05HCpwM

Hour long set. They were great in London but suffered for the narrow-minded Quo faithful not being into them at all, though they couldnt have put more effort in.

For 2nd hand CD's, many very cheaply priced, Reckless is the place to go. Ironically it started as the US offshoot of a former London record store. Of the 3 branches, the Milwaukee Avenue one is the largest and the downtown one the smallest. I normally end up with about 40 CDs from the 3 branches on my trips! Warning, as the stock is set out in the form of cards rather than CD's themselves, they

Hour and a half set last night- I was shocked when they got to Crazy on You and ended the main set after barely an hour. Only one Led Zep number. There were some great moments, like Alone, but I thought it was a patchy evening. Also the Symphony Orchestra seemed a bit like an afterthought IMHO.

I was there on Sunday and echo previous comments about his energy and the incredible show he and the E Street Band put in. Makes you feel glad to be alive. Definitely the greatest live act there is right now.

True David, but at least the Americans got Let it Go and Foolin early in the set. Us Brits didnt even get those on last winter's tour.

Big fan. One of the few 'contemporary' bands I listened to in the dark day of the (pre-internet) early-mid nineties.

Status Quo at Crystal Palace FC- 1984. I went as the tour was supposedly the 'end of the road' for their live gigs- ironic in view of their recent announcement.

IIRC FM were booked for the M3 festival a year or two back and then pulled out fairly swiftly.

Two British bands enormous in the USA yet who meant jack shit in their home country and I don't think ever toured here- in the seventies, Foghat, and the eighties, The Outfield. Love both bands btw.

Has to be the amazing line up I saw at Rock Fest in Cadott Wisconsin in 2003. Day 1- Whitesnake, Dokken, Jackyl. Day 2- Def leppard,Alice Cooper, twisted Sister, Night Ranger. Day 3- Lynyrd Skynyrd,Sammy Hagar,Grand Funk,Firehouse,Loverboy. Day 4-Boston,Heart,38 Special,Rick Springfield, Eddie Money. Sadly, while still going, the festival has gone in a more Ozzfest direction in recent years.

For me this has been one of the most fascinating board discussions in a long while. Of course when 'rock n roll' first came on the scene it was viewed by our grandparents generation as a fad that would never last, so perhaps we are lucky it has thrived as long as it has. I doubt in the sixties the industry foresaw that a generation of artists and fans would continue to rock well into middl

Hi Marty, good to see you back on the board and I would second Martin and Shade's comments.I went last year but PoL aside not enough for me to make trip this year. There is a semi-covered area outside where most people tended to go between bands and was very sociable if a bit smoky. That is also where the food is, but it was very basic fast food and will shatter any stereotypes that Italian fo

Great review. Whoever thought in the years between 1995 and them reforming for Firefest that FM would come back as good as ever and give us AOR anoraks (as you refer in the piece) such great pleasure?

I love Freedom's Road too but nothing else I have heard of his since the mid nineties has floated my boat. On the other hand Scarecrow and Lonseome Jubilee I will never tire of.
