The Answer - Bloomsbury Ballroom - Friday 9th March
Friday night and it's a bumper group of us for the Answer with Paul, Chris and Mark joining Richard and myself for a trip to the grand sounding "Bloomsbury Ballroom". Dave had double-booked, so we had a spare ticket and took the chance to wind him up by saying "Jimmy Page" was bound to be special guest !! (not true, unfortunately). Anyway, after discovering it was a late start, there was far too much time for a few too many beers at various venues, including the Polish bar behind Holburn Station. Managed to sell Dave's ticket for pretty much face value and get in with lots of time to spare. Didn't care for the venue (nowhere near as grand as it sounds) and the sound was muffled. The "newbies" in our group enjoyed it, but Richard and I didn't feel it was as good as the times we've seen them previously. Still quite enjoyable and the band should be destined for bigger things.
