This was an (un) organised bus trip we went on. At the time,it was an uncommon thing for peeps to be travelling to other countries for gigs.There was only a couple of companies doing it. We had a hotel in Frankfurt the night before the gig. It was still a long drive to Karlsruhe though ! When we got to the stadium the next day,we weren’t early enough: still queued up outside whilst Accept were on.We saw every other band though. This was also the last but one gig that Dave lee roth played with Van Halen !! A good experience,but, the bus journey was a killer.
Myself & my sister went on a bus trip to this one. I’d have been 15 at the time. I found it all very exciting. Slade were brilliant, they threw hundreds of loo rolls out into the crowd & rocked. Blackfoot were a great southern boogie band. BOC were as boring as fuck. Whitesnake were pretty good. AC/DC were a disappointment. There were so many long gaps of silence between the songs & no talking to the crowd. Actually , we didn’t see all of AC/DCs set as my sister wanted to get to the bus in case they left without us lol P.S. Another memory i have from the day is that whilst walking around the festival, we bumped into Athula. He was a chap working at the same hospital as my sister. To think that some years later they got married & are still together is great 🙂
