December 01, 2004
Twas a night in late November, and some pretty little RaW chaps (unisex word now, none of this chapess shite) toddled off to the Collie to watch Babyshambles.
The pre-gig tension was soothed by Jimmy dancing his trademark dance which somewhat replicates what I imagine a stoned robots dance, along with the dancing came the continual quoting of lyrics – Bless you Jim, bless you.
Anywho, the support acts were so so, nothing which made me want to purchase (downloads are naughty kids) their tracks on CD form anyway.
So we waited, Jimmy danced, I sang along to Sweet Home Alabama. Then a question came from Mr Christopher Teeven's mouth, a question so thought provoking I will share with you now….
What 5 bands which have now broken up/ had someone peg it/ gone crazy and/ or promised never to play again, would you go back in time to watch?
Here are my top 5, this decision was quite hard, people like Ray Charles, Dusty Springfield, Marvin Gaye, Johnny Cash, Jimmy Hendrix, etc donít count as a band/group so Iíve been able to narrow the field a little
So, in no particular order
3-The Travelling Wilburys
4-Led Zeppelin (Rob Plant used to live in the village up from mine)
Bands skirting the top 5 were – The Who, Stone Roses, Take That, the Refreshments, The Kinks
