What a rockin' show. I saw them in '82 at Elland road, then in St James in '86 and though no one will ever match Freddie in any shape or form, Paul did a magnificent job and brought some of his fabulous reportoire to the show, which was appreciated by everyone.

By the way, the night was made even more special because I got Roger's drum stick and handed it straight to my drummer son, who's delighted face I will never forget.

Thanks for a fabulous evening.

:-) Don't worry, he's not going to use it. He's said he's going to frame it as a reminder of the best concert he's been to.

No, it wasn't. I didn't see Roger throw the other one either.

Is it a signature Vic Firth with two red marks ?

Btw, this was at the Newcastle gig

I got the one he thru forwards from the end of the catwalk. Only a short throw cos there was only 2 people between me and the barrier.

I wondered what happened to the other one. Looks like the mystery is solved.

Our Roger must have 3 hands :-D, unless John W. got the one that went backstage.

Is there anyone from up a height can say how many he threw out front ?

I knew it right from the beginning... this tour is " only for the bucks they can make"! :-))

Poor old Roger... I still can remember the times when he was on Tour with the Cross... Roadies where throwing more than a dozen of "his drum sticks" into the audience after the show had finished... maybe they wanted us to leave the arena, dont know. :-))) Still have three of his sticks since May 1990 when they played in Berlin... The times they are a changing... ;-))

I bow to you. Really that is awesome. Put it in a glass case to protect it but so you and your son can see it. How cool!
