Default mel and vinnie asks the last time you saw__________

When was the last time you saw any member of the 1967 Fleetwood Mac lineup (s) in concert anywhere and with anyone?

I will give you mine. John Mayall's Bluesbreaker reunion tour with John McVie in 1982(?)
Mick Taylor was on guitar . I saw them at The Chance in Poughkeepsie and then at some arena in New Jersey with Buddy Guy Junior Wells Albert King and I think Etta James.

two great shows

Thanks for putting me up on Splinter Group and PG & Friends again.

Saw the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band with Rick Vito in 2008 (I think), in St Albans. Very good - a fun gig. Got to meet Mick and Rick afterwards... Mick had the flu and was a bit spaced out. Rick was a very friendly guy with plenty of time for everybody.

Saw the Peter Green Splinter Group on 4 Feb 1997 at The Brook in Southampton. I lived with Peter's niece at the time and she bought me tickets for my birthday. She managed to get us backstage and we met Peter, Nigel (bit grumpy) and Cozy Powell. Very, very good night.

Saw the band again in 2003-ish in Truro - had a quick word with Peter afterwards but he seemed slightly disturbed because he seemed to remember me, but couldn't remember where from. He appeared to be happy though, making jokes and being sociable.

Haven't managed to catch John or Jeremy in concert yet, or Danny obviously.

Saw Peter Green & Splinter Group 3 different times:
Sept 1, 1998
Sept 16, 2000
May 5 2002 or 2003 Can't remember which year.
All three shows at a small pub called the Cabooze, about 500 -700 people, standing room only!

Had some CD sleeve notes signed by Peter in 98....

Mick & John with Fleetwood Mac about a year ago or so at the Xcel Center 15,000 + people. Didn't really enjoy the show that much, too big of a venue, too far away, sound was OK at best.
