I love old 60s and 50s music and have seen a few over the years, mostly after they have been famous

I have only seen two out of the above list and at the height of their fame, Walker Bros and Small faces and they appeared together at Romford ABC tickets 10s :-D

Hi Lynda I was going through my vinyl recently and I found the album from the first fairwell concert of Fairport Convention in Croprady (sp) which my mum took my brother and I too I was 9 and we sat in a field all night listening to them it was awesome


AnnCardiff Report 20 Jul 2013 21:35

go for meal in Frankie and Benny's - that's all they play - 50s and 60s - I just love it and their food is good too - went their last Tuesdsy evening, singing along when my pal said, shush, don't let everyone know that we know ALL the words!!! :-D

the only thing I don't like there is that if it's someone's birthday, they dim the lights, bring in the cake to Cliff Richard singing Congratulations - can't stand him

All this reminiscing, love it:-D

I've seen Ike & Tina Turner and The Small Faces, hubby has seen loads, he used to frequent The Marquee club, he was friends with some of the groups. I didn't put Rod Stewart on the list, but really like him, then and now, saw him a couple of years back at Hyde Park with Stevie Nicks and Ronnie Wood, they were terrific, Rod really appreciates his audience, I absolutely loved it.

I also saw Take That with my Daughter and Grandson, he goes to lots of concerts with his Mum, he's a drummer, and he's gonna be big one day, watch this space :-D
