Colin Bell… That term ‘live on stage’ has always amused me. I don’t recall ever appearing on stage ‘dead’….some might disagree with that of course………

Kevin Hilton… Although some acts have ‘died’ on stage.

Tony Davis… I’ve certainly died in front of an audience at some gigs. Fortunately the good far outweigh the bad

Mike Vawdrey… But you could be live off-stage – like the late Little Richard, Marion Williams and bluesman Albert Collins who used to go walkabout with his massively extended guitar flex – were Health and Safety informed ? !

Steve Mann… I was there that night

 

The Flying Pickets, Elkie Brooks and The Nolans – White Rock Theatre 1985

Martyn Baker… I saw her as a singer in Vinegar Joe (with Robert Palmer I think?) on the pier way before this show. I was about 14, and I met a girl too. Loved that night!

Andy Qunta… Martyn, I saw them on the Pier too!

Matt Thomas… Famous for only doing a 30 minute concert

Mick O’Dowd…Thinking I might have been at The Pickets show. Used to love them. Very talented. First saw them on the Tube.

Aileen Mathieson… I was working on the bar that night 1400 people on there that night didn’t stop behind the bar that night.

Andy Qunta… I saw DL at the Pier. Even back then they were good!

Tim Moose Bruce… That was a great night. With Magnum as support band.

Laurence Owen… I was there as well. 14 years old. Seem to remember there weren’t that many people there but time might have misted the memory. It was a great concert though. One of the first concerts I ever attended.
