  1. I watched/ listened to this concert from a bed in the ICU of the local hospital in July of 1990, after my small intestine ruptured. My best friend and I waited and watched on MTV for the Floyd to make their appearance. I was hooked up to all sorts of machines, and fairly buzzed on pain meds. Got to see them properly 4 years later when they came thru North Carolina. No machines this time, just good weed and great friends!!

  2. On the night before this gig at 6 oclock I was lay on my bed contemplating my weekend. There was a knock at he door my friend John walked in “Do you want to come to Knebworth?” about 10 hours later John, his sister Sue and I arrived at Knebworth. No tickets. But we were at Knebworth. We lay on the grass had a spliff or two and grabbed some sleep. When I woke up the readio 1 roadshow had sprung up about 100 yards away so I wandered over. Simon Mayo, DJ, was doing a quiz and giving away tickets, there was only about 100-200 people and no one knew the anser to the question “Shine on you crazy diamond is a tribute to who?” I yelled “Syd Barett” and won a ticket, The next question was about Genesis the answer Mama, I won another ticket. I went back to find John and Sue, we bought a third ticket from a tout for £15. Sues son, David, Johns nephew, played little pinky in The Wall.
