I am a massive fan of Martin Barre.

The first time they toured Oz, myself and some friends managed to get 42 tickets to see them. Not one ticket was scalped, they were all for friends, and at $5 each we thought that was a pretty good deal in 1972. They played Festival Hall, as the Hous of Stoush was really the only venue Melbourne had in those days. They walked out on stage in the dark, all dressed in trench coats, we could harldy see them. IIRC the first number was Thick As a Brick, which Anderson introduced by saying it was a fairly lengthy piece, while swinging a dangling cod piece. Forty five minutes later it was over. Not bad for a number whose lyrics were written by a 12 year old boy.

Martin Barre, was one of my favorite guitarists at the time and at one stage he was given the time and space for a guitar solo, and l do mean solo, as the rest of the band left the stage. Imagine then his horror when halfway through his solo, his speakers picked up some randon taxi radio messages. There was not much he could do about it, he twisted a few knobs on his amp and played on, but he must have been horrified.

Almost as horriffic as the version of Psycho Killer, Talking Heads played on their first tour in Dallas Brooks Hall. They had just settled into the number when some guy jumped on stage and started waving a huge knife around right in front of David Byrne. To their credit, the band never missed a beat, and kept playing. At the end of the number two guys from the crew, approached knife man and led him away. The audience sat in stunned silence. It wasn’t until he was gone that they applauded. The guy was obvioulsy part of their road crew, and the knife wielding, part of the stage show.
