    apart from the crack shot in the crowd at the nickleback gig in portugal (youtube it).

    for me i'd have to say motorhead and metallica.
    the original line-up of motorhead with lemmy, phil taylor & eddie clarke, they pioneered thrash metal and no matter how many times i've heard "ace of spades" it still sounds as good now as the first time i heard it!

    i borrowed "master of puppets" from a mate and i've been hooked on metallica ever since. i dont think theres ever been a band who have even matched metallica's early stuff, ok they went off the boil a bit after the black album but how many other bands have they influenced over the years.

    you can keep all the talentless pop crap knobheads who cant even play an instrument that no one will even remember in two years time!
    i'll stick with rock & metal.

    Cheers 55, I don't have too many as I didn't take a camera most of the time as it was usually too mental down the front front seeing the "bigger" bands. I've got some great shots of the Stranglers somewhere. A mate found his "Sheffield Top Rank Sunday Dancing ticket" the other day. In 1978 loads of Punk bands played the Top Rank on Sunday's and you had to buy the "Sunday Dancing ticket" to "Enjoy live entertainment and alcoholic beverages on a Sunday". I wonder if they made Iggy Pop buy one when he played there.

    The Damned's 77-78 era was a little before my time. I didn't get to seem them play until into the 80's. But every time I've seen the Captain play with them he is always out and about talking to people. Really nice friendly fella !
