“I loved the Hard Rock. We would go after they had filmed Supersonic in the afternoon and there would be remnants of that lying around. I remember the ultra violet lights when you walked in and towards the toilets. So excited. The dance floor was silver and used to evolve, I think, unless it was me. We saw bands there, either thursday or friday. I know I saw Judas Priest there in 1975 in August, just before they played Reading festival. In fact, I'll go look for Supersonic now on utube.”

“I attended this concert. I was right at the back of the stalls, last row on the right hand side. We heard people at the front calling out for Bowie but we cold not see. Then a rumour waved towards the back of the room that David Bowie was either in the wings or playing keyboards. I never knew and wondered recently and now I know. Thanks.”

“It's not the Electric Circus. It does not look like it. I was going there early summer 1976.It was a Rock venue at first then Punk nights were added later on in 76, as I saw The Sex Pistols on a Sunday night in November, I think?”

“Me and my friend were at the front at this one. Alex had a very snotty nose and sang to me. Bless him. Loved him. But I fancied the guitarist Zal.”

“Great footage of the Beatles. I see they brought the 5th member with them. The stage moniters must of been turned up to number 11! Those were the days.”

“There are thousands of pubs being knock down every week at the moment,all are historical in their own little way.Bus stops are named after pubs because they were local land marks.The pokey little blocks of flats that are quickly built in their places,mean nothing.They'll never be landmarks.Pubs are meeting and entertainment places,not just drinking places.If council housing was put up in their place,maybe we could solve the problems of homelessness. Councils plan changes to town centres decades in advance. Look at the M67.Started 1974,finished 2??? It was built right through the centre of Hyde,down the main street full of shops.Hundreds of houses were cleared. A community gone. Also if Belle Vue was open today,it would be packed out every week-end. But the zoo was in a sorry state and that was one of the reasons why it closed down.”

“Tommy Ducks. The place was plastered with ladies panties and it was a favorite with Granada TV presenters. Must be 1977 the last time I went in there.”
