  1. He means Donington I think. Download is what spotty kids call it. Anyway it's a load of sh*** these days, crap bands, crap fans, and the odd fat old man.
  2. Black Sabbath were fantastic, and like Willie said Ozzy's performance was great. A real entertainer who knows how to get a crowd going, not that they needed any encouragement. Brilliant gig. God may be dead, but Jesus can play a mean drum solo.
  3. According to the EA river level website The Darwen as beaten its previous record high level at Ewood this evening.
  4. RIP Fred. I used to have the occasional natter with him in the Feildens Arms in Mellor Brook, which he owned. He'd pop in for a quick half and a brandy regularly. A very down to earth pleasant bloke. Sometimes (if there weren't too many people in) he'd buy a round for everyone. He loved to tell tales about his time in the merchant navy, but he hardly ever mentioned the Rovers.
  5. I totally agree, it was brilliant. I loved every minute of it. Have a cup of tea...
  6. Me too. Gong including Steve Hillage, and Nik Turner supporting, it'll be quite a strange night!
  7. MOTORHEAD! Brilliant, I'll be there, saw them there in the 80s a couple of times but haven't seen them since. There was some Motorhead graffiti on the front wall of the KGH for years after the last time they played.
  8. 12 years in Malta doesn't seem like a bad sentence (unlike the one above!). Some people pay good money to go there on holiday for just a couple of weeks.
  9. If you like a bit of Led Zeppelin then you'd do far worse than going to see 'Whole Lotta Led'. I saw them last night at King George's, they were bloody great - they had the sound nailed on, were powerful and energetic, and very loud like it should be. And as for the drummer's Moby Dick - it was massive! There will always be someone who will look down their nose at a tribute band, but if you want to see the real LZ then go on, be my guest. This lot were pretty authentic. No wigs, either!
  10. Thanks for the Bumley 2000 link, I'd forgotten just what a bunch of dirty cloggers they were that day. Didn't work though, did it? What a great day that was!
  11. I've just bought a ticket for the Roger Waters show in Manchester, in May. I can't believe I've payed £50 for the pleasure, but from what I've read it's an astonishing show. If you're a Floydie it's going to be one not to miss - Dark Side Of The Moon in full, plus his own stuff. I was totally dumbfounded by Pink Floyd at Maine Road in '88, I just need this to complete the set! I'm also looking forward to yet another encounter the genius that is Roy Harper, in Darwen, of all places, the night after.
  12. I'm on that pic together with half a dozen of my mates. That's me with my back to the camera just climbing down into the riverside, half way down the fence. I got covered in black tar that was smeared over the top of the wall. My undies got stained too - I always was a coward.
  13. Just look at Paddy's face! Elsewhere in the brochure it mentions how the players celebrated with a buffet reception at the Bull's Head in Wilpshire. How times have changed.
  14. I scanned that pic from the official commemorative promotion souvenir brochure - there's three more if you want to see them, but, being a bit of a numb nuts as far as computer stuff goes, they'd probably all be really big like that. Shall I post them?
  15. Here's one.. Apologies. I'm sorry it's so bloody big. It's twice the size of the original. Mods, can you resize it for me?
  16. Red and black halves for the away colours is the one. We should have adopted it years ago. We should never have bothered with yellow, orange, black or any of those other crappy designs we've had. Blue and white halves will do for the home shirt. All three options look pretty much the same to me. It doesn't really matter if there's the odd red flash here and there, or who makes it, or what the sponsors logo looks like.
  17. Well done Rovers. A great night for us. Listening to the radio it sounds like the travelling fans have done us proud, they've sung their hearts out and it sounds like like they've had a fantastic evening. I wish I'd been there. Well done everybody!
  18. My Dad took me to Deepdale that day. I was only 14 and couldn't blag him into taking me to Bristol, so the Nob End / Swansea game was the next best thing. We stood on the Kop end, at that time it was PNE's home end, and I distinctly remember it being well populated with Rovers fans. Every other bloke seemed to have a radio wedged up tight to their ears, and there were quite a few familiar faces knocking about. I think most Rovers were happy to keep a low profile - I wonder though if the result had been in our favour how many would have blown their cover! As it was when news filtered through
  19. Steve Gibbons is playing in Clitheroe on wednesday night, in the Cross Keys (or Key Street, whatever it's called these days), free entry I believe. I think it's a solo gig, as opposed th the SG Band. Definately worth a look, if that's your sort of thing.
  20. Whatever the shirt looks like next season, I say bring back the blue socks. I thought the kit looked really good on Sunday against Spurs.
