Knebworth back in 79 when men were men and girls were birds :)

Knebworth 79 was sooooooooooooooo cool. The first weekend we walked right to the front of the stage with two birds (yes there were called birds back in '79) Me and my mate Dave found them hitch hiking to the gig. We told a couple of Scottish blokes right at the front that they could have them if they let us sit down and let us drink their whiskey. The poor girls spent the whole gig fighting of the drunk Scots whilst me and Dave had the best seats in the house :) At the end of the gig we grabbed the girls and made a run for it. I seem to remember sleeping in a ditch with them and then dropping them off on the motorway on the way home. Not very nice of us but lads were lads in those days LOL. Oh the gig was great, especially Jimmy and his laser. I will always remember 100,000 people with their lighters lit for Stairway. What a mind fuc. The second weekend was memorable purely for the fact we didn't have tickets but got in for free. 2,000 pushing the fence down did the trick. One security guy was behind the fence and he did his best to stop us by hitting the smallest person he could find. WOW happy times
