Queen / Billy Squier Concert

on Queen, 1982 Aug 19

Went to this concert with Jimmy Hinkley and it was one of the top three concerts I ever seen in my life and I'm 63 and have seen Hendrix and The Doors.

Hey Jimmy, if you ever find this site I'm in Fort Worth phone book - GIVE ME A CALL because I've been searching for you!

How Do I Know

Getting Busted for buying a WHO bumper sticker

on The Who, 1982 Dec 1

Stood on the floor and cops were roaming looking for people to bust for buying. Someone was selling WHO bumper stickers so I reached in my wallet and pulled out a five and handed it to the guy and bought my bumper sticker. Suddenly a hand grab my wrist holding the bumper sticker and the cop thought I was making a score and when he seen what I was holding he let me go. Jimmy Hinkley said "Wow man!"

Drunk as a skunk

on The Rolling Stones, 1978 Jun 17

I was fall down drunk and could hardly walk. After the concert I was resting on my back and a cop said "If you can't get up and walk I'll have to take you in."

on Yes, 1974 Dec 14

Was this the concert that Procol Harum opened, Yes followed and then ELP finished off? Went to about five ELP concerts at the Spectrum.

Was really in Amougies!!!!

on Pink Floyd, 1969 Oct 25

This festival was really held on a turnip field in Amougies, Belgium (Amourgies is NOT listed as a location to choose from so I just picked one to click on since I could not list Amourgies as the city).

It was held inside a very large circus tent and the location was change from Paris since that city had just experience severe rioting and this festival was not really wanted there so it was moved to Amourgies and became famous for Frank Zappa jamming with Pink Floyd.

Only there one night

on Frank Zappa, 1969 Oct 25

Was on our way to Paris so I was only able to stay one night and what a night it was! It was when Frank Zappa jammed with Pink Floyd! It was a five day festival and other well known acts who were there on other nights were Ten Years After, Nice, Caravan, Yes and Captain Beefheart.
