Here's me and my mum 26 years ago, Colston Hall.... She can't wait for her next one. After all, she's waited a very long time!


and here's me with zits! Aged 15!

i'm taking a trip down memory lane here now... Thanks Elise... it's triggered some great memories....

Great photos!

It was actually my best mate Kath's (Kathryn2804) parents who took me to my first gig. Driving us all the way from Devon to London in the back of a transit van for the Finsbury Gig. I was 14. So I do owe Clare and Slim a big thank you for all those years ago

...and to think... my parents told me that my first gig (Sept 23rd 1982) was the only one i was ever going to and not to ask them to take me to another again.... HOW WRONG! 90 gigs later and it's still as strong as ever.. AND now our parents want to join in!!

and my first time was in the back of a Bedford Dormobile.... first UB gig that is... from Somerset to London!!!

Apologies for hijacking this post last night. I'd had a few red wines and was feeling all nostalgic! Miss my parents, as they live too far away...
