'Sweet', Palace Lido, mid-seventies. Whatever anyone thinks, live, they had a great edge to them. Mick Tucker (The Fucker) played, 'The Man with the Golden Arm' drum-solo with two video-screens projec

T-Rex played The Lido in the 70's. MeatLoaf and Status Quo played The Bowl in the 80's. Apparently Boyzone played in The Cave disco! I remember 2Unlimited and technotronic, but not Boyzone. More recen

Dr Feelgood at the Lido 76/77 is etched in my memory. Never have I witnessed a band with such energy and menace. They looked more like four blokes who had just pulled off a messy bank job than a band

I've always wished someone would write a book about some of the great bands of the 60's and 70's that played over here. It's been done for a slightly earlier period I think, and there was a great programme on Manx Radio a couple of years back, with Roger Watterson interviewing Bernie May, John Harrison and 'Flash' Howell. I think Flash probably has most of the history, as he supported many of the big names that played the great days of the Lido. I was slightly too young to catch most of the big names but I caught a few acts in the early to mid-70's.

Great gig on their first UK tour


Slightly marred by massive fight in middle of the big floor at the Lido- Freddie ignored it
