You lucky sod! Must be of a similar vintage to my older sister. I wasnt allowed to go with her to the Hendix gig in Chatham mum said I was too young. Great ! Thanks mum (shakes fist to the sky)
Hendrix was playing not long after appearing at Monteray but he was stopped from setting light to his Strat on safety grounds.

The Ramones supported by the Talking Heads and the Boomtown Rats Canterbury Odeon 1977. They had a lot of the punk/new wave acts there- i also saw the Stranglers, Elvis Costello, Siouxsie and the Banshees among others. Another favourite gig was The Rezillos supported by the Undertones and bottom of the bill Joy Division!

That must be 1974. Saw them in 76 with a completely different supporting line-up.
No, it doesn't count as (like Dartford and Ebbsfleet) it's in London!

Neil Young, Primal Scream at the Hop Farm, Paddock Wood about 10 years ago. A superb set from Neil, all the favourites, ended with the Beatles A Day In The Life.

The drum solo went on for over 30 mins and the drummer resorted to standing off stage and throwing his drum sticks at the drum kit at which point I got the early bus home and missed Court of the Crimson King.

Curved Air at Central Hall Chatham.Must have been early/mid 70's.Was only about 14.Needed the Gents half way through,took a wrong turn,and ended up backstage.Sonja Kristina was standing there in the buff mid costume change.To cut a long story short- she took my cherry.A good night.

David Bowie, Slade, Mud and The Glitter Band at the Central Hall. The Slade concert was before their Reading Rock Festival comeback. The Central Hall was empty but they played a full set and encores and were excellent.

Forgot all about seeing Roxy Music and Slade at the Central Hall.
Roxy playing their first album and encoring with Virginia Plain were outstanding that night.
Edit : just remembered Mick Abrahams as well
