Why: This was Love, with a full string and brass section playing the Royal Festival Hall, doing all of Forever Changes and I had killer seats and a pile of magic mushrooms.

My friend and I took them over dinner at the Oxo Tower, walked down to the gig and although we missed My Morning Jacket in support and the opening Orange Skies (they wouldn’t let us in the door till the band had finished the song) you couldn’t get the smiles off our faces all night.

High: Those mushrooms. And Alone Again Or, note for note but with added passion. Shame about Singing Cowboy at the end, but hey, that’s Arthur on his last legs. His flash on you….

Drinking: Vodka tonics, for the sake of the water.

Thinking: Of all the other times I’d listened to Love on hallucinogenic drugs. And the strings… the strings…
