That is very cool. Recorded in '81, I see. That makes it a pretty early music video. I also see that The Steve Gibbons Band still tours around the UK. Ii would be fun and humorous if local forum members started showing up at his gigs on A's and made yourselves known. Here is the current gig list. Do it! I'm dying to hear what happens.

The 2nd of November in Birmingham would have to be a sell out!

...by Bud Ekins, whose Triumph dealership was three miles from where I grew up in Los Angeles. That was where I first dreamed of owning a British twin.

used to watch SGB live at JB's in the mid/late 70's

JB's was a small venue in the heart of the black country in Dudley

I still have a couple of SGB albums on vinyl buried somewhere in my collection. *eek*
SGB were a great live band and dare say they still are

There was another band that played in the area later on called the DT's....not to be out done they did a song called "BSA Rocket 3"
