Saturday night rock memory

Picture will enlarge. Alan Watson on stage with Slipstream and rocking the crowd at one of the Maggot free fests. Sometime in the eighties, good times indeed. The Gurnmeister remembers being there but has not got a scoobie what year. Thanks to Murray for the pic.
Charlie Robertson donated the scaffolding for the night and the electricty if my memory serves me right. Rock on Gurnites!

'For I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change
And the bird you cannot change
And the bird you cannot change
Lord knows I can't change'

Fantastic. Two Nairn legends. I think it was either 1983 or 1984 by the way. Those were the years of the Rock Festivals at the Maggot.
