AH YEAH BOI!!!

I've been fortunate enough to have seen some serious bands play some seminal gigs and tonight was one of them nights… (although I was trying to swerve it all day) As I walked into the main hall of the Ritz the show commenced…

Public Enemy just strolled into my top-ten-gigs-of-all-time-bestest-gigs… simple really… u have some serious players, two iconic figures of hip-hop and a bouncing-Manchester…

Flava Flav went round the balcony and did his stuff from within the people… as inclusive as it gets he kept the show ticking over, just right…

Chuck D has a way with words and words that show a way thru history, politics and philosophy and his delivery is worthy of his status as a grand master…

They talked of hip-hop being in Manchester for decades and the last time I saw a hip-hop gig was actually at the Ritz back in 1988… promoted by johnny j and featuring MC Buzz B… Prince cCool… Owen D and C-Chill on the desk…

Tonight brought me full-circle back to some of my musical roots and for personal reasons it will resonate with me for time… peak experiences like these go beyond marks-out-of-ten… being 'in the moment' is where it's @…
