JJ have had some pretty good moments for sure and at the time, they were the best things we’d done and we believed in them absolutely, but there is always still more to come, or you wouldn’t keep going…I’ve also recorded other great albums too that I believed in totally at the time… Stereodreamscene with Deckard being one.
Considering that doing this all again with JJ was a closed door for me until recently, everything we do from now on is gravy, all the way. Its just great to have the chance to keep doing this and that there is still love for the band making it all possible. We’re lucky fellas.
Get more involved behind the scenes and be more of a nuisance. Don’t leave all the decision making to others. They don’t always know best…
First Glastonbury and Reading gigs, first headline theatre tour, Town and Country shows, Barrowlands. Wembley Stadium (the old one) with INXS. The tour of Romania after the overthrow of Caucescu was something…Budokan in Tokyo, LA – The Roxy after we won our MTV award. We played this gig the same night – the place was mental as the audience had been watching the awards ceremony at the gig so when we went on stage the place erupted!!

ACDC still very much on my playlist – grew up with them and bad boy Phil Rudd was instrumental in me taking up the drums.
Was hoping to see them again this summer having seen them last year (and they were bloody great even without the great Malcolm Young) but now that Brian Johnson may not be doing it due to failing hearing, I’m not sure. Thats a step too far now… Saw Public Enemy with The Prodigy at Wembley in Dec 2015. What a gig!! Took my daughter and she loved it…passing the baton on
See previous answer….
Stayed in a DSS place in Manchester in 1989 sometime courtesy of our beloved tour manager of the day, ‘Gimpo’, trying to save money – remember checking in and there was dried blood on the sheets and locks on the doors. Lots of shouting and noisy kids in the night…And no room service – I mean, come on!!
I’ve never asked myself those questions? Should I have?
Questionable wardrobe? How rude! We were just told what to do in those days ha ha
I really do not now what the first record I bought was……so no.
