Back when we were limited to the amount of gigs we could get to, as my dad would drive us. Around same time, Thin Lizzy announced their own farewell tour & we had to decided between UFO or Lizzy. Live n learn eh ? !
I’m unsure which night was the school bus trip & which was the one my dad drove us to. But, i remember hanging around afterwards & joining a line to meet/get autographs from Motorhead. Strange how things can stand out : I remember i got along to Fast Eddie & his pen stopped working. He squiggled on his boot & got it working again…
Oh yeah, another memory is that whilst at this show i got my first proper boot to the head (actually, my nose & i thought it might have been broken)
Motorhead was the first band that i saw more than once on the same tour. My dad drove us to one show & the other was a school bus trip. I remember my dad saying ” Why would you want to see them more than once ?” Even back then, i just KNEW it would be worth seeing more than once. I mean, you go one show & what if you catch the band on an off night? Or at another venue, the crowd is so much better than others ? Already i was questioning it all….
