Here’s a rare video of Crawler ‘Stone Cold Sober’ venue unknown.
John Storer….One of the most embarrassing moments of my life was loudly slagging off Crawler as being bloody awful, only to find I was sitting right behind the band’s wives and girlfriends. Oops! Agree with Bobby, though, that Moon were easily the best band on that night. Their debut album “Too Close For Comfort” is one of the few albums I regret giving away, because I’ve never been able to find another copy. I don’t remember Concorde at Reading, but do remember that it had been raining all day and when Moon came onstage it stopped, and the sun came out. Brought a huge cheer from the crowd.
Tim Bruce…..Just watched the youtube link of stone cold sober. Saw Geoff Whitehorn demonstrating Marshall amps in 93 at Eastbourne. Brilliant guitarist.
Bobby Walker….Remember this gig because …. there were seats in the ballroom! Crawler were dull (wasn’t long after Paul Kossoff had died, Boxer were good, but Moon were brilliant. Saw them a few months later at Reading. A brilliant moment when Concorde flew right over the stage as they were playing.
Martyn Baker…..I’m still playing music with Loz Netto (guitarist from MOON & Sniff N’ The Tears). Lives in Brighton. He’s a great player.
Gerry Fortsch… Good gig I remember it well, I was lucky to see my favorite bass player Tim Bogert from the Vanilla Fudge.
Pete Prescott… Wish I had seen this show. Boxer had Mike Patto singing. I also liked Crawler. I saw Patto in 72. amazing band.
Pete Fisher… great group on facebook which I belong to – Ollie Halsall and Patto Fan
Conan Howard… gosh there were some great bands around in those days, where are all the good musicians now? are they all in their 70s and past it ?
Alan Esdaile… Anyone remember being offered the free e.p?
Peter Thomson… I may still have that – will have to search through the 45 cases some time and will let you know.
Peter Thomson… t appears I have two copies.
Martyn Baker… I was there on the pier, and loved this gig as a teenager. I also played music with Moon’s young guitarist Loz Netto much later when I moved to Brighton. He was also in a band called Sniff N The Tears.
Peter Bridger… I was at that one. Don’t remember a thing about it though!
