Too many stories to put up at once! The Implosions starting on Sunday afternoons were my favourites, I went to so many and I dont think I ever once paid to get in. I was mostly backstage or upstairs at parties. One of the stewards later became my daughters godfather in the late 70s. I also was at the Doors gig, and I remember the Who and Elton John, Rod Stewart, Vinegar Joe, Pink Fairies, Pretty Things, Floyd (with Syd), Camden Festivals (notably 1972) countless others - will post them as I remember!
