My Top Gigs of 2020

Coronavirus has messed up most of 2020, so surely 2021 must be better for all of us. To all my gig-going chums, it has been slim pickings since "normal" gigs stopped in Mid-March. I still managed to get along to 35 gigs in 2020...my lowest seen by me since 1974 ,when i was aged 15. By a comparison, in 2019 I went to 172 live music events. My total gigs seen from 1973 to 2020 is now 7089.
