Danger Zone

I have no idea why this came to mind today but many many years ago when I was young and didn’t know any better I let my brother and his mates talk me into going to see Sammy Hagar at Newcastle City Hall. This was years before he joined Van Halen, who we had also seen at the City Hall a couple of years previously supporting Black Sabbath.

Anyway there was a thing at the Hagar gig, and this is probably my only recollection of the night, that if you wrote your name on something and popped it in a box then it would appear on a poster that would be given away free with the next album. We obviously did it.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the poster and I don’t know if my name was actually on it but just to prove I didn’t imagine all this I had a bit of a Google today and sure enough the poster was given away with the 1981 album Danger Zone – see above. I still don’t know if my name was on it and I’m not about to purchase a vinyl copy from ebay just to find out but if anyone has a copy and would like to get the magnifying glass out and search for me – please get in touch!
