i've lead a sad life im 27 and havent been to any concerts or bands of any kind, it isnt that i dont like music its just i get a bit itchy around large groups of people. i have my family, my pets, many books that i havent read yet.
im waiting for a moment just a moment, for your wandering eyes to linger on me. how long must i wait? so that i may be a slave to thee?

Yep - watching Rocky Horror at midnight on a Friday night in an old cinema while a group of actors perform below the screen, while holding your brown paper bag in which you'll find a stale slice of toast, some rice and a few other select bits and bobs! :D Nothing beats that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Errm dressing up as Magenta for the first night of the London run with Jonathan Wilks and getting within 3 feet of Richard O'bRien and Robbie Williams and having Patricai Quinn stroke my feather duster... Sorry beats the cinema!!

Dont forget the lighter and the water pistol :D My friend nearly got the sack from her nursing job for doing the Time Warp down the ward. Sister wasn't thrilled but the patients loved it :bounce:

I often feel the same way. I usually just want to start elbowing people in the head and stuff to get some room. Funny thing, I'm not claustrophic and I don't mind say a bunch of people in a car with me. It's large gatherings of people I don't know that set me off. Maybe if I just started carrying a walking stick to help give me a 3 foot clear zone around me I'd be ok. :wink: :P
Take my love, take my land, take me where I can not stand. I don't care, I'm still free, You can't take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

Rocky Horror, Return to the Forbidden Planet and Once More with Feeling are all permanent fixtures in the car. Good singalongs for journeys.

The other CD-slots range from AC/DC, Green Day, Chilipeppers, Led Zep, Yes, Spin Doctors and anything else, new or old that takes my fancy :? , except dance/trance/house and rap :evil: ! Oh, and chillout's not too sensible for the car.. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.... CRASH!!!!! :shock:

I have to say I'm with Renta on this one! Being a fan of all things ROCK most of my music dates from the 60/70/80 era.

I do have quite a few more recent albums and I agree with Colin that Greenday are one of the better modern bands. (also have: Kings of Leon, the Darkness, Nickleback, Muse, White Stripes, Foo Fighters)

Perhaps it is nostalgia setting in but the bands I saw live in the late 70s whilst at Uni were awesome. Rush in particular for a three piece band were exceptionally talented musicians. (and that's not ot mention: Thin Lizzy, Yes, Scorpions, UFO, Blue Oyster Cult, Magnum, Judas Priest and Def Leppard)

Apart from Greenday my best find of recent groups has been Nightwish, absolutely awesome.

I agree I love all that music and Greenday are fantastic.

I also love the Red Hot Chilie Peppers.

PARANOIA :shock: I used to ride a vespa, never tried it with corset and the rest, just a parka and open face crash helmet.
