Love the Clash sadly missed seeing them at least once 

I saw the Clash at Hyde Park Rock against Racism concert. A long journey on the bus from Aberdeen. Another great song at that concert was Polystyrene from X ray Specs singing Artificial.

Coincidentally the greatest song ever made is also my favourite song.

The last 4 and a bit minutes of this is as good as music gets.

(I was going to say The Trolley Song, but this one’s a bit more acceptable)

It was on Sky Arts. Keep an eye out for repeats. 

 

Live at Royal Albert Hall from a few years ago... Superb gig.

 

Might be on DVD too.

Some of my favourite bands I'm running out of time to see.

 

Go see.  You or they will eventually run out of time or run out of road.

I had tickets for Bowie at T in the Park, which was going to be my first time seeing him.  It never happened because he took ill at a gig shortly before T and he didn't tour again.

 

I can only echo your statements to go see the bands while you can.  A lot of bands from the 70s/early 80s are finishing up.

A mate of mine got tickets for Bowie somewhere, but it was cancelled - and then like your own case, it never happened for him.  The difference is that he'd seen Bowie live 5 or 6 times before that.  But he had loads of chances to see Leonard Cohen - in Dublin, a few minutes away on the bus - but he never did, and he regretted that.

 

Not gonna lie here, but I used to work off the logic that a gig was only a gig, and for the same cash you could buy a couple of the artist's albums and still have money to pay for a takeaway and a few beers to have while listening.  But the truth is that you can't replicate what happens at a gig - the atmosphere, the feeling, the whatever it is, you just can't replicate the experience of being there when it happens.  I thought about going to see Prince playing a 20-minute spin from my house but decided "nah, some other time".  When will I get to do that now?  :sad:

 

So now, actively encouraged by Mme. U, I take my chances and I go and see.  Occasionally, I'm disappointed or it's merely OK (and sometimes, we go see stuff for which JKB would never forgive me).  But sometimes it's magic.  Paul Simon in the RDS, when he was already 76 years old.  Julie Fowlis and her pals in the Church of Ireland in Drogheda.  Milton Jones with about 100 people in Islington (for about 15 quid).  David Byrne in the Point.  Primal Scream in Dublin only a couple of weeks after my mother died. 

 

I saw Sigur Ros with my son about 6 years ago.  We're going to see them again in November.  Might be great, might not, but if we're not there how will we know?
