They played a lot of private functions in the west country so if you were in a function band there was good chance you'd end up doing support for them at some point. 

Same as Ronnie Scott and the London weddings, parties, bar mitzvahs circuit.

As a poor musician from quite a musical family (one recognised on the queen's honours list for services to music and two who've written scores for famous films), I can't compete in this thread. 

However, in typical Billy Two-sheds style, I have worked on the accounts / taxes of artists who have had:

- One of the top ten grossing concert tours of all time. 

- one of the top 25 most viewed videos on YouTube of all time. 

- one of the top 10 highest-selling artists of all time.

Nice! A mate of mine worked for the PRS and told me stories of sending cheques for some seriously large amounts to UK artists.

I once played a gig at the Night & Day Cafe in Manchester and was very surprised when Butch Vig (Garbage fame) turned up to play after us with a female vocalist... Can't remember her name, but they were pretty good.
Better claim to fame is that many moons ago our rehearsal room adjoined the room that The Verve used. We arrived early for our rehearsal session, but forget to bring a microphone.  We nipped next door and stole Richard Ashcroft's.

The lead singer of The Who? Daltrey? I don't know his name really but he owns a fish farm in Sussex, one year he'd had a load of problems and I had a days work on site, bit of reconnaissance, happened to be stood on his lawn when my boss has shouted over at me about nearly finishing for the day. I've shouted back, top of my voice, "We've just got to do the bit by Pete Townsends kiddie porn wanking shed and we're done."

Boss as made some hand motions, I turn around and Daltrey is stood right in the front room window listening to me. Shrugged at him and carried on with my businnes. Fuck him.

He hired your company through word of mouth. He won't get fooled again though.

Did you ask him "Who the fuck are you?"
