Strangely Excited

I saw The Sensational Alex Harvey Band 34 years ago in July 1973. I never saw them again. I don't know why not, that's just the way it was. They were the first band I ever saw live. I bought the records and reveled in the hard rock and theatricality. The band split in the late 70's and Alex died in the early '80s and that was it really.

I bought the CDs.

SAHB without Alex got together and played a few gigs and then started touring again with a new singer. No-one could possibly replace Alex. And I'm seeing them again tomorrow night, 34 years and 5 months after first seeing them. And I'm getting strangely excited. Vambo rool.
