Great t-shirt…

Took time out to read The Observer newspaper on Sunday and spotted a great t-shirt advertisement.

“I may be old, but at least I got to see all the good bands”

Great sentiment and one that I can relate to given the music review work that I did a few years ago.

Starters for ten include Thin Lizzy, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Madness, The Housemartins, The Chieftains, Dire Straits (in a hall, not an arena), REM, Nirvana (in the legendary Mayfair Ballroom in Newcastle) and The Levellers…

Gone are the days of seeing over 160 bands in a year though!
