There is an even worse trend which needs to be strangled at birth and that is people capturing shows and viewing it through their ipads, obscuring everyone else's view even more as well as looking a total dick.

It seems to be selling well as already back to row L in the stalls- why have they put seats in to a normally standing area-groan! I fear though us real fans will be in a small minority and the place will be packed with various Guilty Pleasures types enjoying the only two songs they know in an 'ironic' way. I hope I'm being too cynical.

Still Michael Lee Smith, Richie Ranno and Joe Dube Terry. Ginger from the Wildhearts and Alex kane on guitar filled out the line up on this occasion.

It was great to finally see them, and a special atmosphere. But I left grumpy at barely hearing anything from COliseum Rock- my favourite album of the four by far. But I think I was in a minority.

Sadly, as per previous threads on this topic, there is bugger all in Central London. You could try Berwick Street for Sister Ray and the Music and VIdeo Exchange, but neither are rock specialists. Sorry to sound so negative.

I think you are in for disappointment Ralfster. Definitely no melodic rock specialists as far as I know. The Music and Video exchange limps on, in Soho and Notting Hill Gate, but is a shadow of what it was in the eighties and also the prices are quite steep. Flashback Records on Essex Rd Islington has reasonably priced second hand stuff. Otherwise there is the odd gem in the outer suburbs but its

Just flew back into the UK and have to add my thanks to Andrew and all the organisers for a quite fantastic weekend. The venue was excellent (if only it was so easy to have decent food and beer at Firefest!) and great to meet friends old and new from UK, Europe and USA. Seeing the likes of Glen Burtnik and Robert Tepper at last made the trip worthwhile by themselves. I hope to get my review onlin

Was very pleasantly surprised by them when they were on the bill with SPringsteen at Hard Rock Calling.

It may have been a great tour but I remember at Hammersmith turning up to find FM wouldnt play as they'd been asked to play in front of the stage curtain. Also remember being given some crappy white scarves to wave for a Magnum video promo that night. When the World Comes Down perhaps? Kept mine as a souvenir for ages.

Mine was 'The Search is Over' followed by 'open Arms' and 'Waiting for a girl like you'. As my marriage didn't last, the former is now known by me as 'the Search Goes on'!

Agree with you there Scott. It was a heart warming evening and I enjoyed more than recent UFO shows I have been to. My jaw hit the floor when they opened with Just ANother Suicide. And given how big an influence UFO are on Stampede's sound, Reuben and Rob were a perfect choice.

Another shout out for Chapman/Carter era UFO. Plus I much prefer Def Leppard's first two albums to anything subsequently.

Niv- I saw Company of Snakes in 2002 at the Mean Fiddler and they did do several from Burst the Bubble that was out at the time (though 10 years on I can only remember Ride Ride Ride). To answer your original question I would love to see them do Wishbone Ash's Living Proof which Laurie wrote and has some of his best solos, but I may be in a very small minority!

Agree with you Tom- my best was Bruce in Manchester on the same tour. Richie Sambora at Shepherds Bush and Dennis De Young at Milwaukee Summerfest not far behind.

Quo were the first band I ever saw on the so called 'End of the Road' tour in 1984. After Georgia Satellites blew them out of the water at Reading 87 I swore I would never see them again and for 25 years I have stuck to my promise....but this is the tour that has made me break it.

Nice to meet you at the London show Mark. Excellent night and recommended- the acoustic format suits his voice as it now is way better than the 'White Lion' that was touring 3 or 4 years back. It was interesting that he still seemed to fondly remember the times he had with Vito Bratta but appeared to have a very low opinion of everyone else, whether the rest of White Lion, Freak of Nature or t

Woody, as the expert on all things HRH AOR, any idea how they manage stage clashes? I'm resigned to them happening lower down the bill but if too many of the 'headliners' are on at the same time I will be narked off to put it politely.

I thought it was fantastic and among my gigs of the year. Richie seemed happy and genuinely moved and there was a lovely atmosphere. But I didnt know he was slated to do Shooting Star - I feel a slight tinge of disappointment now!I also thought a 2 hour 25 minute set was good value for money and friends of mine who chose not to go as they thought the tickets were too expensive are already regrett
