I went to see Roy Harper in Manchester a really moving show from a performer who understands that he ain't goona be doing this for much longer.
As the show finnished and we filed out a group of about six men and WOMEN were grabbing each other and throwing punches I was gob smacked and all were 50 plus.

Or be drunk and stupid ...

I love the scene at the beginnng of the movie Woodstock where the two old towner guys are arguring about the concert and one is calling the crowd dirty drug smoking hippies or something equally derogetory.

The other old guy tears into him and says something like "I was just up there and yeah they're smoking pot but they're just good respectful kids having fun and and they're not causing any trouble for anyone. And I'd like to see how respectful some of the locals here would be if you took them up there and gave them a few free kegs of beer ."

I'm paraphrasing as it has been so long since I've seen the movie but his implication was it would no doubt get real ugly real fast having a bunch of local grown men drunk and all in the same general location.

I was thinking back then to myself right on. Here is a man who can think for himself and is not swayed by other people's opinions or worse...what he is fed by the media .

And I've seen too many people drunk, stupid, and violent not to agree with him.

GOB SMACKED! I love it! Not that you were injured it is just that I have never heard that expression before.

"Gobsmacked" doesn't mean that the poster was assaulted but that he was astonished.

I am still laughing that our American cousins thought that by me saying gob smacked meant that I had been hit.Let me you tell you if someone hit me I would cry and break into a thousand pieces.Still laughing.

Perhaps they were arguing about whether he is a sex abuser:


Folk singer Roy Harper has been charged with sexually abusing a girl from the age of 12.

The 72-year-old is due before Hereford Magistrates' Court on Monday accused of nine counts of sexual assault.

West Mercia Police said the offences are alleged to have been committed in Herefordshire between 1975 and 1977 and relate to one victim.

Mr Harper, who lives in the Republic of Ireland, has performed with Pink Floyd and was an influence on Led Zeppelin.

The summons was issued to the musician, of Rossmore, Clonakilty, County Cork, on 16 October, after he was voluntarily interviewed by police at Heathrow Airport on 22 February.

Mr Harper has produced more than 30 albums during his career and performed on a sold out tour, last month.

He sang lead vocals on Pink Floyd's Have a Cigar on their 1975 classic album Wish You Were Here and was awarded the MOJO Hero Award by the music magazine in 2005.
