i love your photos.
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

Yes, garbageman, you are welcome to use the pictures on your forum.
I have posted quite a few pictures in the past 6 months, mainly concert tickets, plus some pictures. If you find them, you can use them.
There were some from 5th December which may be of interest.
Your forum is excellent. I just had a look. Some really great info on there.

12/6/1971 Liverpool GB Top Rank with Osibisa / Brian Auger

Yes I was there, but it wasn't at the Top Rank and I don't recall Brian Auger turning up.
It was my first ever gig and first ever date.
It had been scheduled for the day after (Tuesday) but the gig was cancelled and moved forward a day to Monday to a different venue - the Royal Court Theatre.

We got there a couple of minutes before the band came on stage. As soon as they launched into the first song, the pa blew up. Rory then had to play acoustically for about 15 minutes as they worked to fix the pa. We all had to be very quiet to hear him. I remember the volume was deafening (for me) when they started to play electrically. I think the band were on stage for about 45 minutes. I really enjoyed Rory's acoustic performance and was inspired by Rory to learn the guitar myself.
