Bloody hell 65! Ziggy & The Spiders from Mars were my 'fave-rave', they were unreal, the greatest in my book. I remember seeing them on TOTP's April '72 at my mate's house with his aged father spouting in disgust "Is that a girl or a boy?" My eyes soon focused on the blonde guitarist with the sanded Les Paul and musically my life changed there and then. (although I ended up buying a black Stratocaster, it was loads cheaper...)

Timmy my dad said the same thing about the sweet " you can't tell if they are boys or girls" fast forward a few years and I was agreeing with him about boy George the first time I saw him!

Mick Ronson... what a legend! That guitar was magic. It still exists and was bought by a very wealthy fan of his. If I had to choose out of any 3 guitars, it would be this one, Peter Greens les paul and the Randy Rhoads goldtop, modeled after Micks own

Yeah my brother liked slade, I hated them until the film slade in flame and now have their cd! I'll check some of these out later, any listen to Al Stewart? Some of his stuff excellent but year of the cat is the obvious one.

How about the sixteens mcbikeman. My current fav sweet track. Saw them at my local football club a few years ago. I think only Andy Scott was left.

seemed to have so much heart in it back then...so many bands were very innovative and had there own sound compared to todays press a key and let the instrument if they have any play for you..

my era does seem not to be able to have an original idea of there own when compared to the fun i have had listening to the tunes being posted here.in saying that i do think coldplay will stand the time and i guess they are a fav band of mind.

Piano Man is such a great song, I never tire of listening to it. Billy Joel has done some amazing stuff, what a singer. How about 'This Night' from An Innocent Man. I played Dignity and 'When Will You Make My Telephone Ring' from Raintown to death.
