Friday night, Glasgow Cathouse. Front row to see the mighty Tigertailz in action. Well, if truth be told, I was actually there to see their drummer, Mr Robin Guy, do his thang:
Been a Robin fan (dare I say 'groupie'?) for about 15 years. Saw him for the first time in the Cathouse in 1996 playing with Rachel Stamp and I was hooked. Friday night was no different. Insisted we follow him back to the merch stand and queued to get my bandana signed and photo taken (I'd brought a marker pen with me, but apparently it was shit). Can you imagine my delight when he said 'allo Lisa!' Robin knows my name!!!!! I could feel my 15 year old self explode with excitement! Is ok for a 30 year old to behave in this way? Maybe, maybe not. All I know is it made my freakin day and I came home with my signed bandana, used drumstick and a deaf right ear (stood next to the speakers and the 'tailz turned it up to 11!).
Thanks to Gill (my long standing partner in crime) for taking the photos of me and Robin and for the video x
Tell me your tales of hanging around after gigs for your favourite bands - would you still do it? Surely I'm not the only nutter out there??
