Pimp, did Deke Leonard play in Man at some point? Caught them and Budgie live in Salisbury, in the 70s.

I remember the Zoo TV tour. Visually brilliant as well. Coldplay easiest the best live act I've seen. 3rd time this June. It's visually and musically amazing. Enjoyed the Stereophonics a few times and the Pet shop boys last year were good. Paul Mcartney a few years ago the best set list. It went on forever.

So many to choose from. 

My uncle used to take me round the Rhondda in his old escort mk1 (bluelined) rally car blasting Sabbath for all to hear - one of my earliest memories. The other uncle used to play me Quo LOL. Grew up buying LP's from Ian in the market - ACDC, Maiden, Deep Purple, Motorhead GnR and so on. Got to comp and my mates introduced me to Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Obituary, Pantera, Slayer, RATM, Sepultura. Of course we were the grunge generation so Nirvana, AIC, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Blind Melon were all staples. Then later Korn, SOAD, Limp Bizkit, Fear Factory, Slipknot, QOTSA, Soulfly all took off. Been lucky to have seen many of those bands. Many highlights but perhaps the one I appreciated most was QOTSA with Dave Grohl on drums at Glastonbury 2002. Always wanted to see him drumming having been too young to have seen Nirvana play. Also managed to see the original Sabbath line up at Ozzfest 2001. Also got covered in red watching Slayer perform Reign in Blood LOL. Band I wished I'd got to see - Pantera. God I loved them. Since getting older, grown in appreciation of other music such as Portishead, Prodigy, Public Enemy, Pixies, Clash, Stranglers and many more. 

For all that, I was the bassist in a Llanelli punk band - Stickman. I wanted to play metal! CryLOL

Saw Graham Gouldman in Buxton when I was up there the week before last. Not many turned out, but the snow was 6 inches deep around the town centre. He was very good, it was an accoustic evening. He's doing a short tour, it may have ended now.

Sadly I never saw Focus at their height. Saw them about 12 years ago at St David's Hall, without Jan Akkermnan of course. Have seen Akkerman live many times, and he really is an astounding guitarist.

For me it is a hard one to decide. Akkerman or Knopfler ? Both supreme musicians, and both play some wonderful melodies. Only saw DS once at the old National Stadium in 92 on the 'On every Street' tour. Since then I've seen Knopfler many a time, usually at the CIA. Wonderful memories.

Think so check out his life story where he says that the Who wouldn't come out of the changing room of the Regal Ballroom in Tirydail because they were terrified LOLLOL

Yes Deke was in and out of Man , it was a great combo...with Martin Ace , Terry Willians etc.
Deke also formed Iceberg,  another popular band.
A great musician  Deke and a legend of Llanelli  music.

Great that someone's mentioned  Focus.
I remember seeing them live on the Whistke Test for the first time.
It's correct to say that Ackerman was talented, with such a great technical  ability. 
Missed.

I'm lucky enough to have seen him on home soil in Metlife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ in 2017. Although i'd love to have seen him in the 70s/80s. Never got to see him with Clarence or Danny either Cry

I have a relatively extensive mp3 collection of 85 live dates, mainly the official releases not bootlegs. Missing a few if anyone else collects?

Wonderful  posts.  We gave to get to together sometime  to discuss,  as I am also a big BS fan , as indicated  in my first post on this thread. Seen him in concert sever times. Brilliant every time!
