Greenslade Newcastle City Hall 1974

Greenslade Newcastle City Hall 1974
greenslade Greenslade were formed by Dave Greenslade left Jon Hiseman’s Colosseum. The members of Greenslade were: Dave Greenslade – keyboards; Tony Reeves – bass guitar and double bass; Dave Lawson – keyboards and vocals; and Andrew McCulloch – drums and percussion. By the time of this gig in 1974 they had released three albums: Greenslade (1972); Bedside Manners Are Extra (1973); and Spyglass Guest which reached 34 in the UK charts in 1974. Greenslade were a keyboard and synth-led proggy rock band, with heavy use of melletron. A group of us went to this concert. I remember the set as being largely instrumental, and quite heavy prog stuff. Their lp covers were pretty neat with cool Roger Dean illustrations. I also saw Greenslade play at the Reading Festival in 1973.

    Lads – I remember Andrew Mc Culloch’s drum solo – surely one of the only drum solos that was worth watching …was this the gig that Rab Noakes was support on ?

      I can’t be sure be sure but Rab Noakes could well have been support. I certainly remember seeing him several times supporting acts at the City Hall in the ’70s Cheers Peter
