Well, I didn't have to wish I was there for this one........I WAS there!  July 23 marked the 39th anniversary of me attending my very first rock concert as a wide-eyed 16 year old! Scorpions with guest stars Iron Maiden and Girlschool at the Kinsmen Fieldhouse in Edmonton, Alberta. What a show! Iron Maiden was on their Beast on the Road tour in support of the Number of the Beast album.  Although they were technically an opening act, as far as I was concerned, that night we had TWO headliners. Iron Maiden and the Scorpions both put on blistering sets and I'm pretty damn sure the city of Edmonton had to bring in structural engineers the next day to assess the damage to the Fieldhouse, 'cuz that roof got LIFTED! 




Never been  big fan of the scorpions  but I have to say the Iron Maiden and I go back right to the beginning. One of the best bands live ever! Merit for posting then!

I had the pleasure to see Joan Jett and The Blackhearts live in Toronto. Such a pure rock show that was well worth the money spent on the tickets! Here Is a live performance from then from a German TV Show!

Good stuff and some new things to listen to which is part of the journey

Now only Pink Floyd could could just go further and take us all into some space journey blasting off from Pompeii. This gives me tingles from the head down.

It’s Pink Floyd Echos Live from Pompeii 1972

Always thought there was something wrong about me, never found "Floyd" and good yet all my bothers and sisters loved them!

Thanks to "Telelatino" RBD from Mexico managed to get a following here in Toronto. "Tu Amor" was their biggest hit outside of there telenovela
