My name is David Rose, I live in Swindon, UK, and for 30-odd years I've been going to gigs and keeping a gig diary of my experiences at said events. This started out as a scrapbook in which to keep set-lists, tickets etc. I'd accumulated on the way, with gig reports being a secondary feature (in those early days, often even only one sentence long!). However, since about gig 150 I've been expanding these reports and using them as an outlet for my frustrated music journo tendancies.
I've long since meant to set up a blog to share my scribbles, but I've only just gotten the impetus to do so.
Hope you enjoy my reports. Please note that any views expressed are my own inflated opinion only! Please also note that by and large, I'm going to be complimentary of the bands I've seen, as I'm a fan, I've paid my hard-earned cash for tickets to go to these shows. When I'm critical, it's because I've been genuinely disappointed, as I wanted them to do and be better than they were. (Unless you're a support band, in which case you're fair game...!)
