Tag Archives: The Stranglers
Having enjoyed a couple of days at the first weekend of Edinburgh Fringe and my body crying out for sleep and a nice quiet night in the thought of Hugh at Hebden Bridge is too much of a temptation.
Never been a fan of gigs on a “school night” but I could hardly miss this one could I?
I’ve lost count of the amount of Stranglers gigs I’ve attended now. It started in 1990 and I’ve seen the (on average) at least twice a year. Somewhere in the region of 50 then.
I’m was already familiar with Ed’s name due to him being the tour manager of the Stranglers when they did their U.S tour in 78’ and Ed’s eventual move to manager in 1980-82. So when I heard he’d written a book I thought I’d take a look. I noticed it was less than a fiver on Amazon so I didn’t think twice about the purchase.
