Agree with many of the above posts but would also add it is great now to have multiple opportunities to make our own minds up. Back in the eighties the word of Kerrang and Derek Oliver in particular was God. There were numerous 5k albums that I bought which were rubbish- conversely a bad review, however unjustified, and an album would never get past the starting gate.

If anyone did, it would be 'Jammywanker' aka my fellow Brit traveller to MRF Steve. Check out his youtube channel for videos from the show and other gigs.

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.
