    Oh god, LOADS... it's one of our favourite things in the world, seeing live music - from pub bands to festivals to stadium gigs. Some of the best include The White Stripes (who managed to turn the cavernous Ally Pally into a sweaty little blues club), Public Enemy (who asked God to make it rain at a sweltering hot Reading Festival - and it did!!), The Stones at Twickenham (just because it was the bloody Stones, dude), The Who at the Liberty Stadium (the greatest band on the entire planet, bar none) The Charlatans many, many times and Cast in the peeing down rain at The Vicars Picnic festival, last year - until the stage blew up! :eek:
    We've also seen Steps struck by lightning in a park and Kelly Osbourne disappearing in a hail of plastic bottles after threatening to leave the stage if "one more motherfucking bottle hits me" (a heartbeat of silence... then every bottle in the place descending on her :rofl:). There was also the time when Lis wouldn't let me bring a Pussycat Doll home because "you won't have anywhere to put her" :rolleyes:


    I wasn't even fussy as to which one it was!

    I'll post my rest later but the one band I have seen is my favourite band in the whole world Dashboard Confessional . I saw them the last time they came here in 08 and I don't think they'll ever be back.
