Hello

Hi. I am a new member here. I have been a guest for many years but finally joined last week.
I have been a fan of Japan and all things related since the early 80’s. I have seen David Sylvian live on 3 occasions. Big regret that I never saw Japan live. I collect ephemera related to David Sylvian and Steve Jansen.

Lucky! When did you see the Sylvian concerts? I'm just nosy, as Sylvian has different eras of music :D

Welcome!
Although I collect the music of Japan and members since 1978 I only saw Richard Barbieri a couple of times live and David Sylvian and Steve Jansen twice (2001 and 2007). I regret not visiting the concerts he did in the nineteens; I did buy his albums, but when he came "to town" I was in a period I couldn't stand the atmosphere of his songs. I guess I was just in love and wanted to hear uplifting songs. :wink:

I’ve always liked his music throughout the years.
I truly regret not going to see Japan in Liverpool in 1982. Can’t remember why I didn’t!
Was very upset when he cancelled his last tour of the UK as I had front row tickets for the Manchester date!

It's nice that you guys got to see all the cool stuff :D

I feel for you missing the Japan concert, Jon. On the bright side, it's cool that you got to see David a bunch of times; I would take that as a big win! Although, I consider going to any concert a big win. I've never attended one once in my whole life :lol:
