      Ha you’re only as old as you feel…. so in my head I’m still a spritely young thing!!!!!! How cruel the mind to play such tricks πŸ˜† We seem to have a very similar musical taste…then again I’ve got a fairly ecclectic taste in music anyway. Fingers crossed we’re back to some form of normality some time soon…what would life be without live music…

        Age is only a number and a state of mind !
        Think you g, be young πŸ‘πŸ»
        Very eclectic taste in music myself, sometimes I surprise myself with what I like or been to see!
        Life without live music has been purgatory….thank god for YouTube 🎢

        I once was reluctantly dragged to a Prince concert in Sheffield, it was his Gold Album tour, I was completely blown away by him….absolutely fantastic show

      I think I’m probably a bit late to the party on this one….. Anyway for me it was the Echo & The Bunnymen, The Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus, Bowie, Love and Money Hipsway (if youre from Glasgow then you know exactly who they are). I could go on…and on and on….but I’ll spare you πŸ™‚

        Loved Bauhaus, off to see Exho in May 🀞

          Bauhaus I think it was one of my go to albums it was on repeat…thinking back I must have driven everybody mad, but hey to be young! Where are Echo and the Bunnymen playing? Live music definitely something to look forward to

          In the flat field must be pushing 40 year old…showing our age !
          Used to have it on continuous play on my cassette deck 🀣
          Seeing Echo at the O2 Leeds all being well and I’ve got The Who, The Specials, James amongst a few others to look forward to.

      Bucks Fizz… and The Fizz as they are now called are still my guilty pleasure today. Also liked Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Culture Club

      that’s a nasty question, to many to pick just one πŸ™‚

      I am a fan of Bryan Adam’s….love the guy, particularly Summer of 69 as it was the year I was born πŸ₯°. I also love Madonna. Erasure were another favourite.
