 Re: Bands you seen cheap.

In the early seventies, the place to go for live music was a rundown joint called the Green's Playhouse in Glasgow. It later became the Apollo.

Concerts then weren't like they are today with a big name on the bill and maybe a support band to warm things up. They sometimes had three or four bands doing short 30-minute sets followed by the main act doing about an hour. I think the cost was about a pound.

Because of the time it took to reorganise things between acts, occasionally you would miss the headline band so as to catch the last train home.

I was into progressive rock at the time and thinking back, some nights the line-ups were chock-a-block with what we would regard today as rock legends.
