I’ve been on an “Everything Bowie” since Ahor Tom departed…so sad, but
also fought back a wealth of memories!!! I love working security I was like
21 just move to the city, and worked James Brown, B. Idol, Marshall
Crenshaw to name a few. Also world for B.G.P. And a great perk was getting
“Special seating/backstage passes to shows Synchronicity Tour the Police,
and Bowie’s “Serious Moonlight Tour!!!” 1983-84?
San Francisco’s music scene was…..incredible “Romeo Void, and my buddAdam
Block, writer for Bam…and Rolling Stone! ahhhhhh those were the days! Who
Omg…. SVT was unreal
Listening to “Bleeding ❤️” right now!! Did you know Tina? Brian’s gf? Or Michael Hamilton?!trying to find them…
I don’t much but saw Void.
The most amazing show I ever saw at The Stone was Roky Erickson. His guitar-playing was magical.
Metallica Live at the Stone 1983 !!
Bands like “Hysteria, The Quik, Agent playing at The Stone in the early to mid 80’s. Opening up for bands like Montrose, Robin Trower, Great White, Soft White Underbelly. Great times for metal rock with “Jimmy” (don’t know his last name) running the sound board at the Stone. I sat next to him for many shows running the light board. Great memories.
Anyone remember a band RIVAL in the early nineties? Opened up for Brittney Fox in January of 92.
Anyone know when The Stone closed?
