"It was the end of April 1982 and, along with seemingly the rest of the world’s media, I turned up at Le Beat Route in Soho at Their Satanic Majesty’s Request to hear the news of the upcoming UK dates at Wembley Stadium.How could I have imagined then, that less than a month later, I’d be one of the lucky 250 people to get within touching distance of The Rolling Stones at my fave gig ever. On the fateful day, rumour of a “secret” gig in London was spreading, but this was long before the days of internet and mobiles, so I jumped on the tube and hit all the small clubs where I thought they might play; The Nashville, Dingwalls, The Marquee, The Rock Garden, etc, etc.The last port of call was The 100 Club where there was a girl standing outside on her own.I asked her if she was hoping to see The Stones, she replied “I think so”.I was tired of roaming the city, so I thought this was as good a place as any to have a breather.
Over the next hour, people started arriving in two’s and three’s.No-one knew for certain ‘cos the band booked to play that night were ‘Diz and the Doormen.’After about two hours, a guy turned up and said we should all head for HMV on the corner of Tottenham Court Road where we’d be given a wristband for entry.Once that was secured, it was straight to a payphone to tell as many mates as possible.
It was a bank holiday weekend, so most people were away or it was just too short notice.I heard later that bemused tourists had been beckoned in off a deserted Oxford Street to what would turn out to be the greatest gig they’d ever witness.That was certainly the case for me.
My flashgun popping off all the time five yards from Mick’s face annoyed him so much he threw a bucket of water at me!There were a few onstage ‘cos it was like an oven in there.Luckily, I saw it coming and ducked. It hit my girlfriend full in the face, knocking her glasses off, flattening her 80’s ‘big hair’ and making her mascara run down her cheeks.SHE went home; I stayed and enjoyed a masterclass."
