I saw Ozzy Osbourne in 1980 at Canterbury Odeon - now the Marlowe.Had the privilege of being right at front and having Ozzy sweat on me whilst shaking his head about. Some of us went into the County hotel afterwards and all 4 of the band were in the bar and got all autographs. Lee kerslake and Bob Daisley took the time to talk to us which was great as we were a bunch of sweaty 16 year olds who I guess they could have done without tracking them down to their hotel. Great memory!
This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I hear it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
