It wouldn't have been anyone famous. I used to get trailed around all sorts of folky-rocky gigs with Mum and Dad from the ages of about 5 to 11. After that, I definitely realised that it was too uncool for me, and I could just about be trusted to look after myself in the house alone, but Hereford at the time wasn't really packed with venues for 11 yr olds, so I spent a lot of time listening to John Peel (when you were at the Dome seeing Duran Duran. I'm only jealous if it was before "Rio").
First really famous person I can remember seeing was probably David Bowie at Wembley. I can't remember when, or how old I was, but I do remember I had to get my mum to take me and I wasn't allowed to get the train to London on my own, so I guess I wasn't that much older than 11 or 12.
