I was 20 and at St. Martins School of Art in Charing Cross Road, three streets away from the rear entrance to the club. I used to work two or three evenings a week with my girlfriend - the love of my life who I havn't seen for 20 years .
As I came in through the rear fire exit it must have been about 5.30 and opening the door the swamp of sound that I had heard as I approached got me. Just finishing the sound check - bugger it I should have got there earlier!
Girlfriend, myself and several members of the club management went for a spaghetti, then we went back and set up for the evening.
I guess that the band had retired to The Ship pub for a pint. I can't remember the support band, which is not really surprising !

I had been a YaRdbiRdS fan since seeing them in the back room at a pub in Croydon with Eric on lead. Then Jeff later.

We were stunned, never having heard anything so intense or a vocalist like Robert before.
I don't remember the set (although I do remember talking about it all the way home on the tube ) But I recall Dazed and Confused 'cos Jimmy threw in a bit of "Smokestack Lightnin'"
- an old YaRdbiRdS number- part way through.

I really feel that I had a reason to get an O2 ticket, but I guess I'll have just to put up with memories. There you go.

I did however see the first three Hendrix gigs.
