It struck me recently that, with more than 30 of these columns under my belt, I’ve never really introduced myself or explained why I do what I do.
I have been a fan of music for almost as long as I can remember, jumping on the heavy metal bandwagon with my mates in secondary school before deciding that I wasn’t going to let other people decide my tastes.
In a nutshell, I would like what I liked.
My gig-going started more than 30 years ago, when I would get the train over Leeds to the sadly missed (by me, anyway) Queen’s Hall to see the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Dio and Wham.
Eventually, I upgraded to bigger venues, travelling the country and adding acts such as Bryan Adams, Roxette, Bucks Fizz, Five Star, Queen, U2 and Elton John to my list.
