The ‘Lost Years‘ 1988- 2001.

I did not keep a Gig Book between 1988- 2001, Leashia [my wifey] encouraged me to start it again in 2002 and I continue to do so until this day. [Once a nerd, always a nerd]. I obviously did attend gigs in this time but just failed to keep a record of them. I have some diaries and will use them to list at least some of the gigs I went to during these lost years.

Here is just a start-
