Rodders, never had a chance to see Man, or Deke Leonard. Had most of their LP's including a couple of rare ones. Heard they could be a bit hit and miss live, your experience ?
First time I saw them was at The Roundhouse In London, John Cippolina from Quicksilver Messenger Service guested on guitar, also saw them at Derby Assembly Rooms when Deke Leonard supported with his own band Iceberg, both great gigs, think the quality of their gigs depended on the amount of dope they had smoked same with the albums, there is some brilliant live stuff on the Greasy Truckers album.

The live album Maximum Darkness has John Cippolina on it, rumours are that they had to over record some of the bits where Cippolina was playing because his guitar was out of tune ?

I read the rumour as well, wouldn't surprise me at all, just loved the music, Live at The Padget Rooms and Back into The Future, both contain some great live stuff.

One of the best gigs I ever saw was Sparklehorse at the Union Chapel. Mark Linkous sadly no longer with us and pretty legendary within certain circles.

Honourable mentions for a couple of drummers: Rob Heaton (New Model Army) and John Lever (The Chameleons). Not sure the OP would consider them legendary but, well, both integral parts of a few fantastic nights.

Oh, and Kurt Cobain.

Thin Lizzy,
The Fall a couple of times, and i believe Buz was at one of them,
Motorhead a few times,
Tangerine Dream during the classic years.

Although i didn't know them personally, when i was at Uni in Bradford, heaton and morrow used to go to Mr Pickwicks, a night club opposite the main building and held court at a table next to the dancefloor, surrounded by student goth chicks.

Good grief, The Westleigh was the closest pub to the halls of residence when i was there, used to go in there, and the Shearbridge amongst other watering holes in the city.
 
Revis, you're not steve h in disguise are you?
I'm not no but know the area intimately still, all the pubs, niteclubs&venues gone. Fighting Cock is the sole survivor from that era.when southern death cult&nma were about it was a good scene, add in skeletal family&a few ranting poets,good times.

Nobody mentioned Pete Shelley and Ian Curtis yet. There must be a few on here who saw the Buzzcocks at the De Mont with Joy Division supporting.
