Andy Gunton… I was there.
Phil Gill… Wow….40 years ago
Alan Esdaile… Do you remember seeing Stallion play, Andy?
Phil Gill… John Storer will. He was right in the front row shouting “‘allo Phil!”
John Storer… John Storer does indeed remember, Phil … was there with Kev Potter, Matt Brand, Mick Hurton and Matt’s cousin (who’s name currently escapes me). It rained …. a lot! Particularly remember Moon being awesome, (how I’d love to get my hands on their first album again) and great sets from Rory Gallagher and Ted Nugent. Remember Kev getting hit on the back of the head by a full can of Party Four, which we then proceeded to open and drink. By coincidence, had cause to mention Reading 76 several times during the last fortnight. One of my business partners went to Reading Festival last weekend and I was bemoaning the “gentrification” of rock festivals, telling him that a festival should not be about 5 star hotels and Radio 1 Dance tents, but about very cheap plonk, leaking tents and not changing your clothes for three days! Those were the days! A great weekend for £6.95!
Phil Thornton… ha ! I forgot the Enid played !! – also missed the Sadista sisters ( their drummer went on to form YMO who are one of my all time favourite bands !) – I did get to see AC/DC and Rory Galagher who were brilliant ! Supercharge were also great ! – the mighty diamonds had a rough deal getting bottled, they deserved much better from the audience.
