If I could stick my pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
(“It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It)” – Rolling Stones, 1974)
Music truly comes alive on the stage, and I have had the pleasure of seeing some great gigs since my very first one, Iron Maiden at Bath Pavilion, 27th June 1980, on their very first UK headline tour.
I’ll try and put some of those memories into words, and also look at my current crop of gigs.
Keep music alive. Get out there and see the band on the road. It’ll get your heart pumping and your pulse racing!
