  • Yes man, I was one of them rockers in front. All we wanted at that time was Lord Sutch the axe man as we knew him. Never had a clue that Van the man would go on to be the artist he became. Gloria and here comes the night, classics.

  • I have a memory from the 50s of going to Saturday morning cinema at the Ritz with my cousins and I am sure a cowboy road a horse down the centre aisle and fired a gun. Does anybody else recall this.

  • I remember Van Morrison threatening to walk off if the rockers at the front (who were there for Screaming Lord Sutch) didn’t shut up. They didn’t so he did. Luckily he came back on and rocked Potters Bar with Gloria and Here Comes the Night. Needless to say, nobody believes me when I tell people Van played Potters Bar.
