Hawkwind ticket


This was going to involve a major road trip but unfortunately the whole US tour was cancelled.

Metallica ticket


This was a great concert. The light show and pyrotechnics complemented the music perfectly. Even better was a suprise guest appearance of Lemmy.

Judas Priest ticket

Judas Priest

For an 'old' band they perform very well.


Led Zeppelin

One of the legends ... seeing them perform at the giant Knebworth festival was stunning.

Mighty ReArranger

Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation

Although I wasn't too impressed with his earlier solo work, the 2005 Mighty ReArranger release is an amazing piece of work. There's life in the old dog yet! Clive Deamer (the drummer) once played with Hawkwind (see below).
We saw them perform in Nashville, at the Ryman Auditorium, June 2005:
Nashville skyline, Broadway, Ryman Auditorium - old entrance, Ryman Auditorium - new entrance, Ryman Alley - where the stage door is, Our tickets, Flight case, View from lighting desk, The setlist, The stage

Hawkwind Hawkwind Hawkwind Hawkwind Hawkwind Hawkwind Hawkwind biography on BBC website
One of my obsessions. Many moons ago, I discovered a band called Hawkwind. Over the years, Hawkwind have mutated, split, renamed, reformed, and in the process produced masses of material.
Some of the names include Hawkwind Zoo, Hawklords, Hawkwind Orchestra, and band members have included Dave Brock, Robert Calvert, Lemmy Kilmister, Dik Mik, Nik Turner, Stacia, Simon King, Simon House, and even Ginger Baker briefly.
I'm not going to attempt to list all the Hawkwind material as there are literally hundreds of items, but my favorites (currently) are:
Space Ritual (live)
Doremi Fasol Latido
In Search Of Space
Hall Of The Mountain Grill
