Malcolm Davies left a message in the Pop Peth exhibition saying 'I was the tenor sax player in Amen Corner's first line up, sept 1966 to May 1967.'

Loads more visitors to the Pop Peth exhibition in Oriel 1, St Fagans:National History Museum have been telling us about their best gigs. A couple of people said that Arcade Fire has been their best gig, with Stefano saying that it was the 'closest I've come to a religious experience.'

Sara went to see Cool and the Gang in Cardiff in the 1970s, and Carys recently enjoyed Yr C Ffactor. Branwen loved Big Leaves in the Eisteddfod in Dinbych as well as Bon Iver at this years Green Man Festival.

Steven has written a long list of best gigs which includes Manic Street Preachers, Bob Dylan and Evan Dando who played 'cross legged at our feet to 20 people' in 1995.

Gareth has been to over 500 gigs and festivals, but it all started in 1999 when he went to see Stereophonics at Morfa Stadium. Les went to see Bob Dylan play in the Capitol in Cardiff in 1966 where the first half was acoustic and the second half was electric (i'd like to hear more about this... was anyone else there? did you boo?)

Please add comments or email me with your best gigs, or anything you've seen recently that was good - last week I went to see Efterklang... they were fantastic and had nice mustaches

There will be an official opening for the Pop Peth exhibition on Saturday the 26th of September, I'll add details about it soon!
