    The Clamp and Sussex Nomad have both been banned from this thread.

    Their six-and-two-threes bickering was derailing what is actually an interesting topic.

      Don't seem to have anyone who was actually 'there' apart from the poor chap at the IRA shooting.

      Maybe it should be a 'almost a near miss' or 'wasn't that near actually'.

      I don't have one. My uncle was turning into Egremont Place in the 40s as a Jerry bomb dropped and had some shrapnel land very near to him. My Dad wasn't allowed to go to the Saturday Kemptown cinema once in the early 40s. He was fortunate as Jerry also bombed there that day.

      My mate was on one of the transport vessels in San Carlos water and when a sky hawk came over the hills and went into a bomb run...it let go with his bombs and everyone hit the deck...a bomb landed on the deck next to where he was laying and bounced straight next to him and into the sea...his only injury was splinters from the deck!

      If that would have gone off then hove wouldn’t have an councillor for many years! Or four kids wouldn’t be here on the earth!

      I was at Live Aid 1985.

      I was directly behind Disco Pete when he made his final appearance wearing the legendary white flame outfit. Had an unfortunately excellent view of the damage when he sharted himself and scuttled off only ever reappearing in the more undercracker incident friendly black flame outfit.

      What happened at the nirvana gig?
      Cobain’s physical and mental health was already being discussed in the press at that time and so, I assume to parody the hype surrounding him, he came on stage at the start of the gig being pushed in a wheelchair wearing a white coat and wig. They played an incredibly incendiary headline set in front of 50k wet and sodden fans.

      And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
      Had his moment of doubt and pain
      Made damn sure that Pilate
      Washed his hands and sealed his fate

      I stuck around St. Petersburg
      When I saw it was a time for a change
      Killed the czar and his ministers
      Anastasia screamed in vain

      I rode a tank
      Held a general's rank
      When the blitzkrieg raged
      And the bodies stank
