In June, BOC released the fantastic "Fire Of Unknown Origin" and with Cultosaurus already under their belt, BOC fans were beginning to believe that the Cult were on their way.
I got a confirmation of this date at this bootleg site: It's listing on the site would indicate it had been recorded, but no details are given, so it's strange.
Foghat opened with the title cut from its 1978 "Stone Blue" album.Keep up the good work.That was my first ever concert, and I would have definitely remembered them opening the show.One of the main reasons I think that is that both Hammerheads and Key Largo were in West Islip and Spit/Uncle Sams was in Levittown.Well apparently they were because already on something of a revival they went down a storm and created a real party atmosphere.
Made for a really god awful loadout with the stagehands totally unable to hear any instructions.
I stayed to see Heart but left after 3 songs.
Lead guitarist Erik Cartwright provided excellent licks on his guitar before drummer Roger Earl took over for a short solo.
Got to the venue about 4-5 hours before the band were due to come on stage, saw some cool SWU posters and, after asking nicely, managed to pinch one.Definitely no Outlaws there.Burning For You Veteran of the Psychic War (with a guy in a hooded tunic playing a drum at the start of the song) Black Blade Godzilla (with the huge Godzilla spitting smoke and moving during the song and the drummer wearing the Godzilla mask).I distinctly remember The Rings as bingo linköping cupolen the opening act.Rick was a competent drummer, though not near Albert's.We out-ran the cops up the security stairwell and made it into the arena proper and ditched the cops by mixing in with the crowd.Ex-BOC soundman George Geranios has kindly written an informative piece for this site about the Donington disaster from the BOC perspective.
Our lead singer knew some folks over at the radio station and landed us this gig of a lifetime.
With head turning and eyes glowing, it was a crowd pleaser.
