damn good night really! Bournemouth was packed, and I for one
did'nt know what to expect really, having never clapped my gig
goggles on Dave and the crew beforehand. A quick note about the
opening acts; Y&T were great, (the "Mayor from Hell" Len Haze
solid and reliable), plus Gary Moore who was good, but needs to
inject some life into his admittidly solid playing bassist.
rock god time, and cheeky Dave had the balls to play "Burn" beforehand
on the PA! Yeah, I know he sung on it, but it still raised a smile!!
All I can say is that the whole band were fantastic. You could
really see that they were enjoying themselves, and if I'm truthfull,
the reaction took "Elsie" by surprise!
of the night for me were "Ain't No Love...", "Slide
It In" and "Here I Go Again", plus a superb acapella
version of "Soldier Of Fortune", which stunned a girl behind
me so much, I think she ...urrmm, yes well, imagine what you will,
filth hounds!!! (what...she dropped her handbag?) All credit
to every single band member of every band on the night. Great
rock and roll, which you should miss at your peril!"
