It was 40 years ago on the 7th July 1977 that I played my first ever live show. It was with my oldest mate Colin Freeborn in a band called Flame or Jackal or Brainquake (I really cant remember). The show was at Pangbourne college and we featured way down the bill of course. I don’t remember that much about the show, except playing through the legendary Paul Kossoff’s Marshalls. See my bio for more on that.
So 40 years later we went out to dinner to celebrate. I owe Colin a massive, massive thank you for getting me started, driving me about, setting up my gear and looking out for me.
