  1. the end of a dream…the year jagger took to wearing jane fonda gymnasium tights on stage …keith wasn’t happy about that apparently…and just look at those grim security men…i’d ride the three at the front,but i wouldn’t have them stay over for sugar puffs in the morning.

  3. I seem to remember travelling to this gig on the back of a vegetable truck. We went down to George’s, a disreputable pub on the quays (now closed ) to pick up stray passengers and then sang our way across West St. Mick Jagger was a bit of a anti-climax after all that hilarity. Having said that it was the only time I ever paid into Slane (we Drawda people knew all the sneaky ways in over the walls) cos I thought it was a historic moment to see Mick. But you’re right about the Jane Fonda leotard Mary.
