Night out

Just got home from an evening at the BIC, went to see the Temptations and the Four Tops, bit worrying that some of them were younger than me!

Next Saturday I'm off to see Blondie.

Clem Curtis, witnesed him have a luvly scrap with the bootleg Beatles (Paul M) at the Grovenor Park Lane one night.

This was just after he'd pissed in his bass players beer when he wasn't looking, apparently coz he was late!

wicked live, even though he was a pissed as a fart.

Yeh, the one and only. The original member from 61 is Otis Williams.

There's 5 in the temptations! Fecking alcohol has a lot to answer for! You'll be smoking small cigars next.

Bootlegs are pretty good, just a bit sad that they think they really are the beatles!

They certainly do, I found it rather disturbing.

Just sprung to mind, that i've actually been to see ELO (part2) thats all the band members; performing without the guy who wrote, produced & sung all the songs.

They came out and screamed 'good evening wembley' how tragic to think that 15 years earlier they were saying that to 70,000 @ the stadium. In this case it was 1500 at the conference centre!
