The only one I missed was Douane Eddy.

Was he a fan of French customs?

A folk singer named Peter Jagger (no relation) played several pubs in the early 90s

. I saw him in The Tynwald and thought he we quite good. I bought the CD.

Just found this.

It was a great gig. Mosh pit on the go, if you were standing by you were dragged in anyway. Charlie Harper chatting away in the bar after the gig. He was 61 then and seemed little different from when I saw the band as a student in the early 80s.  Brilliant stuff.

Nice one Earle. Apart from this one, I think I missed out on the Trafalgar.

I remember that being on, the fella who managed Twisted Angels brought them over. Didnt have a very good turn out as he was on the Manxbands website berating all and sundry for not showing up. Came across as a bit of a cock to be honest.

They were here twice I believe, and the band loved fishing out in a boat the next day. The turn out was ok as I remember but these things become blurred. The 'mosh-pit' (imagine I said that like a judge referring to 'a Beatle;) was brilliant though. 

The next time I came across such an invent was at Jaks when the CroTcH LiCe local punk band brought another punk band over to play in Jaks. The band played about a minute before the manager pulled the plug. He shit himself at all the energy and people apparently 'fighting' on the dance floor. 

Ah well, back to singalong poppy bands.

That list you've posted mentions the meatloaf gig. I remember that happening but was too young to have gone, or have been interested in going. Wasn't it some kind of scam or something? Pretty sure I got told that Meatloaf didn't get paid and someone ran off with all the money.

Here's a newspaper clip from back then:
