For me it's Whitesnake and Def Leppard. I saw them at The Hydro in Glasgow in December 2015 during their co-headline tour. Both put on a great show.

Saw Whitesnake perform a few times in the early 1980s at the old Glasgow apollo, sadly knocked down now.
I have to be honest I really liked the combination of Mickey Moody and Bernie Marsden on guitar in the late 70's and early 80's. After that John Sykes was awesome on the 1987 album IMO defining the new Whitesnake sound. Steve Vai is a great guitarist but I felt his style didn't fit. Viv Campbell and Adrian Vandenberg both great. More recently Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach another great pairing.

As live - Black Grape at Balloch Country Park. 1996? Not sure - I was paid to go and photograph it. They were second or third on the bill under the headliners Oasis. Oasis were good but not as good as Shaun and the boys. When not working, best gig live Manu Chao at the Glasgow Academy. Best band in general - the Beta Band. I'll never forget seeing AC/DC live or indeed the Grateful Dead. I'm showing my age I think. I.

I saw Black Grape support The Stone Roses, Sheffield 1995....half way through a song they stopped playing because it was "bifter time" - madnes when they returned to the stage 5 mins later!

Oh & the Beta Band were great. Really enjoying Steve Mason's solo stuff!

depeche mode, smiths, james, neutral milk hotel, simple minds have been the main bands i listen to - also a big fan of electronic and ambient music - jean michel jarre, kraftwerk, art of noise, tangerine dream were the basis of that. now i listen to a lot of soundcloud artists. the standard of music out there is phenomonal
