    Wembley 1978

    It was 44 years ago today: Yes at Wembley Empire Pool, October 28, 1978, twice!

    4 of us travelled down by train, arrived at the Pool by midday, discovered a few tickets remained for the matinee show, and as we had nothing better to do till the evening show, which we all had tickets for, we joined the queue. I asked for a £5 ticket nearest the (revolving) stage, and got second row with a group of Dutch fans who proceeded to get me very stoned.
    We were up in the gods for the evening show, the one that the BBC recorded. What a Day!

    Spent the night sleeping on Euston Station concourse, along with dozens of other fans... Happy Daze!
    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

      Have listened to the recording of that show a thousand times - and I don't think I've ever met anyone who was at that show. Lucky you!
