Excellent idea to salvage all those cool tee shirt design into a collage of cool panels :clap:  Same as you I mostly wear band tees and hate retiring them when they're worn. I might do something similar now. Yours are like a time capsule or something with all those dates and designs. Or it's like looking at a wall full of posters outside a gig. On one of your panels I saw a Judge Death tee next to a bunch of Eddies Cool I used to have loads of Death/Dredd tees but chucked them all   Sad  Oh well, I know what to do now Smile Great work by you and the missus cheers

Cool thread, naturally, I'm a bit younger than you guys and still graced with youth and good looks, and as a result, haven't seem loads of bands.... other resons include, non driver, lazy, broke, high and did I mention my youth and good looks? Razz

I'll see if I can dig out some bits I have, not much but I'll have a look Smile

Cheers James for reminding me about the off topic thread, I kind of lost touch when my computer struggled with GIF files for the GIF thread.

@Steve -
LOL about Hawkwind, never again... What happened? Or shouldn't we ask Razz

I'm curious about that one, I've seen Hawkwind about 4/5 times(they used to do Liverpool Royal court or Empire every year just before Christmas ) in small venues they were Raw/loud and we had some good nights  cheers

No exciting stories I'm afraid. I was 'encouraged' to see them in December 1992 and by the time they got half way through their set I was thoroughly bored & looking at my watch.

I love the Kerrang! condoms Paul. What's the expiry date? lol!

@ James great use of your old T's.

Some rather Random Concert Tickets







You may laugh at this one, but she put on one of the best shows I've seen and man those TITS!!!!!



Velvet Revolver ticketes signed by Matt Sorum (G N' R replacement drummer) had a chat with him, really nice guy Very Happy



I have a Charlie Harper autograph from the U.K. Subs as well, but I can't remember where it is, so I'll show this instead, my only other autograph..... James Earl Jones Very Happy  the voice of Mufasser... and that other guy who's name eludes me :cool laugh:



Now I didn't get this personally, it was a gift from a friend who collects autographs, he also collects pictures of him self with celebrity's and believe me, there is hardly any actor that he hasn't met. He has Aspergus Syndrome and is basically obsessed. I always wind him up that the James Earl Jones signature is fake, but he insists it isn't and has definately met him several times as I've seen his pictures.
This is a picture of me with him at scarborough Sci-Fi convention, the book he's holding is a published book about him and all the people he's met with many of his photo's. He has the best comb over on Earth Razz

Nice one, Alex. Glad you posted the GN'R vinyl here - a real treat to see :clap:

Good you got to see Dylan, Van Morrison, U2 and Eminem live. And an evening with Dolly can't be bad either Very Happy

Had the pleasure of seeing Black Label Society on Sunday night, was a bit skeptical at first as I have gone off them recently mainly because of Zakk's enormous ego (makes mine look tiny :cool laugh: ) Also the last album was utter dog shit! Also the line up was pretty much completely new.
However, it was a really good show, played a lot of older tunes and hardly any new ones which was good so all in all had a really good night apart from the fucking £4.50 pint prices!! Fucking fuming!!!!
Anyway, it's another ticket to the collection


First time I've been to the Leeds 02 Academy as well, great venue!!! This is me at the show with a guy called Pete (middle) really top bloke and Ken, known Ken years, he's my tattooist and a fellow guitar wielding hairy bastard.... just like me Smile another top bloke!
