THE greatest Rock n Roll moment ever....

#3
Watching 'Them Crooked Vultures' perform at Cologne, Josh Homme brings out a bottle of absolute vodka, and proceeds to knock about half a bottle back in one swig - just incase the crowd don't believe it's vodka he passed it to some lad on the front row who took a massive gulp expecting it to be water...no it was vodka! As the quickly turning green lad announced.

He carried on singing and playing as if he had drank nothing in weeks, now thats Rock and Roll!

I saw TCV in Blackpool and it was possibly one of the best gigs I've ever been to. However, for sheer showmanship and crowd stealing, it has to be Queen's slot at Live Aid. 20 Minutes of pure musical perfection.

May 5th, 1982, Eilenriedehalle, Hanover. Queen at the peak of their slump. Camp Freddie throwing a real tantrum, as most of the claimed 9000 (bollocks) were there for the support act After The Fire, and hit the bar while he flounced about the stage.

Lone Tree; that was good but, their first performance of "My Generation" on "Top of The Pops" was like a nuclear explosion and i remember it! For me, it was the song that changed pop music - for the better! Prior to that, everyone sange neat love songs wearing suits with polished shoes. The Who turned that on it's head in around 2 mins 50 seconds!

Saw them live in 1973 in Bremen - still remember "Young Man's Blues" with crystal clarity.

it has to have been the very first time Tom Jones mopped his brow with a pair of knickers that was thrown on stage by one of his girlie fans. that was rock history there and then.

seeing Nirvana in 1991 was fairly rock n'roll too.

Mine was being crushed against the stage at the London Calling gig in 1980 and having Joe Strummer's sweat dripping down on me. I haven't washed since ...

I have 3 moments.

1/ U2 concert (yep hang my head in shame) at uni back when their "War" album made it to #1 in the album charts that week. They arrived on stage with a champagne bottle each in celebration. Proceeded to put on a set of passion that surpassed anything since. At the end Bono climbed on top of their sound system in order to meet and greet the top tier of the audience. An unforgettable sight to see him hanging on for dear life to the balcony handrails and I'm guessing a headache for his security staff.

2/ Knebworth festival - there to see the Rolling Stones when a little known American group took to the stage and blew me away with their music...Lynyrd Skynyrd.

3/ Turning up to a uni summer ball and finding out the unannouced top spot was Bob Marley & The Wailers - ok I know he's not rock n roll but it was an unexpected great moment.
