"Eric Clapton played at the National Stadium in Dublin around '77. It was my first biggie show and what a show. In the days before Elf 'n' safety and over zealous stewards I let rip in the aisle with a supreme "freak out" solo performance and Yvonne Elliman and another Lady doing their own thing on the stage. The stadium was in fact a bxing venue but it was especially intimate with just 2,500 attendees. No music show has ever lived up to what was provided to me that night. I was 16 (although Ithought I was younger til I saw the concet date) Crossroads was the ultimate finale. Joy.! I feel younger already. Am I sad? No sir! Glad.!Happy days.!" - Anon
