Happy Birthday to RANDY BACHMAN who is 77 today. I was lucky to have seen two very rare UK shows by BTO. Bachman Turner Overdrive + Thin Lizzy Hammersmith Odeon, London 03.05.1975 fantastic double bill. Brian Robertson and Scott Gorham had joined Thin Lizzy last year and with Lynott you knew they would be huge . Bachman Turner Overdrive + Thin Lizzy Hammersmith Odeon, London 04.05.1975 BTO were massive in the UK at this time with the brilliant " Not Fragile " album and the big hit single " You Aint Seen Nothing Yet" .Fantastic evening . ----------------- Happy Birthday to MEAT LOAF who is 73 today. I have seen him perform live around 15 times with the first time in 1978 at Hammersmith Odeon on his debut UK tour for the "Bat Out Of Hell" album.
