1981

On Steve Harley

"Come inside, see my mind...in kaleidoscope". To Vilvoorde on 9th November 2012 to see Steve Harley for the first time in eight years (first saw him at the Edinburgh Playhouse 30 years ago). Still a top singer, poet and raconteur: set ranged from the modernist Riding the Waves, through the yearning A Friend for Life to the sweeping Sebastian...very special.

On Simon & Garfunkel

On September 19, 1981, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel played in front of 500,000 people in Central Park, New York City.  I missed this concert by three days, as I had to end my first ever visit to the US to go back home to prepare for starting at Edinburgh University, but I saw them play much the same set live at Wembley Stadium the following June - a highly memorable experience even 30 years on.
