talking 'bout last night

seeing AC/DC in concert.
I can now cross this off my bucket list. .something that i had wished for & my wish comes true... and the saying: 'be careful what you wish for' makes a whole lotta sense
as you can see I was in the mosh pit..
there is much that I could say to describe the whole experience but I won't. in fear of sounding ungrateful for seeing them.

and proof that I went to the concert.
once upon a time, I would have saved this memento. i would have tucked it into my memory box..
do you have any tokens from concerts in your youth? or mementos saved from past times?

Wow, you rocker chick, you!

I think you were just brave to go and see a band that would make my ears and eyes bleed!

May the angels be right in this, and decades more of life and experiences lie ahead.

Your concert response sounds a little mixed. My first-ever rock concert was a Hawkwind gig in the gym at Maidstone Art College. My big brother took me, and then lost me. Apparently he was having a major panic when he finally spotted me. I was all of thirteen years old and I was headbanging in the mosh pit with a lot of black-leather types and having a whale of a time. He only told me a few years ago how terrified he had been; at the time he was totally cool about it!

Take care over there...

I'm not as sentimental as I once was, but I do have a smooth granite pebble that belonged to my late mother. We were in the UK together when she picked it up on a Cornish beach.It was always in her bag, and I can remember her running her fingers over it, it is so smooth from eons of being washed by the sea..

Not from my youth, but at the moment I'm wearing a t-shirt of Fleetwood Mac's 2009 unleashed tour, which says: Rock on Gold dust Woman and at the back: Fleetwood Mac Unleashed tour. I love it and wear it with a long sleeve underneath it at the moment and when it gets warmer I can wear it without !!!
I looooooove Fleetwood Mac and have always said, if there is a band that I would love to see life once in my life, then it's Fleetwood Mac and my dream came true last year. Fantastic !!!!

btw: Angus Young of AC/DC lives in Australia, but has a house in The Netherlands too, in Aalten. He's married with a Dutch woman.

Our Solar system is in a whole new place in the Galaxy right now, it is not possible to go back in time that way again because you are in a different place and your experience is not what you remembered....darn! But it's true.The Frequencies surrounding us are different, too, so you will just have to accept that music for you will be different. I don't think it is about being a woman of a certain age. It's a frequency shift, actually.

You have me curious about the concert Robyn, and as for mementos, I don't have many,and absolutely nothing from my childhood ,but recently collected flat pebbles from a creek bed in the high country to make into rhunes.I can't remember the first concert I went to. I think it was something embarrassing like a Glen Campbell concert with free tickets from the record department at the radio station I worked in. The year was 197..(mumble).
