Thread Name: BS: Where were you when.......
Subject: RE: BS: Where were you when.......
Buddy Holly...buying Sexton Blake weekly from my newspaper shop and seeing his photo on the front page of the Mirror newspaper.

Phil Ochs..picking up the News of the World newspaper on a late night train home from a gig in London and reading this five line item.

Again, late night train home to Birmingham and hearing somebody tell about the pub bombing by the IRA in the Rotunda. Wrote a lyric on the train I never sang.

Thatcher's resignation..listening to the radio driving my car on the motorway then hanging on as my accelerator hit the floor and I screamed "Yes!"
