Album Art and other Music related stuff

Music of my life

This hub is going to be a blast from my music past. Some of my album collection with some great art but sometimes just great memories. Some of the ticket stubs and various articles handbills, posters, autographs and other stuff I've collected over the past 45 years. It's all very interesting stuff that I think a lot of you will enjoy. Some come with vivid memories and I'll try to relay those to you. Peace!!

Indeed, amazing experience, from seeing the Beatles live to Jimmy Cliff and Rick Wakeman (was it his Round Table period, huh?)!

very unique hub...I am a little young for this group but I actually did know some of them and really appreciated their music! Loved the pictures.

I enjoyed this trip down memory lane. I saw quite a few of these artists. I am a musician myself and have written eight Hubs about my band days.

I have also seen a lot of these groups live. Good stuff. One suggestion is to break the hub up into smaller ones. It's a lot of scrolling. I voted and will be following you. I have music reviews and music info on my hub. Take a look, I think you will enjoy it. Good Hub!

You really had a wonderful experience, Tom!

I like all the album covers of Pink Floyd. In fact I used them as my avatars in my different profile accounts.

Hi Beth, thanks it's been a lot of fun and I'm still doin' it. I've been compiling a list of bands I've seen over the years but it never seems to end. I think soon I'll have to do a hub on that. Thanks for you interest, Peace!!
