    Just having a quick moment with the Donington 82 set (the neighbours love me for it really!) and getting nostalgic.

    What a great performer list for that day (I like Hawkwind, but they were a little out of place).

    1982

    August 21, 1982

    * Status Quo
    * Gillan
    * Saxon
    * Hawkwind
    * Uriah Heep
    * Anvil
    * Tommy Vance (DJ)


    Was anyone else there?

    Cheers!

    I was! I thought it was a bit of a let down to be honest after the previous year.

    Point taken re: Anvil. I always thought they were a bit hit-and- miss, much like Krokus (Screaming in the Night's still pretty good).

    Perhaps if they'd got Slade and Blackfoot back from the previous year...

    Uriah Heep were great though, this was what got me into Heep. Goalby was a cracking vocalist. Sloman wasn't shabby, either. Or Wetton. Or Byron, Shaw et al.

    Cheers!

    Well that just goes to prove that I am the only one on this forum with exquisite taste in music:lol: cos I really like Anvil and I am a DIEHARD KROKUS FAN!!!!! Krokus fookin rule, seen them 3 times before and each time they were totally incredible live. Screaming in the Night is fab, probably my fav Krokus song is Come On but Heatstrokes, Bedside Radio, Easy Rocker, Fire etc., are all sensational as well. Come to think of it, every Krokus song rocks. And the new single is awesome as well, and in fact THEY ARE COMING HERE IN THE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER NEXT YEAR. WOOOOHOOOOOOO.

    Most of my shirts fron this era have rotted, collapsed or been washed to death. My KISS Army shirt from then's OK, though. But it's only medium and I ain't any more. Bugger. 24 years can change a man - I became a potatoe.

    Hi, Princess. Just backtracking a little, I still have the Sreaming In The Night, Hardware, Change of Address and Pay It In Metal albums. As soon as I can get to them I might just give 'em a spin again. Assuming my ex hasn't buggered up my collection or my hi-fi!

    Cheers

    Just let me know where to send a copy and I'll try to email you the inlay - my printer's playing up. I'll bung a disc to you in the post when I can.

    Cheers!
