Been there, seen them, got the T-shirt

Lynyrd Skynyrd were totally awesome - Sweet Home Alabama raised the roof.

I was in a fashion scrum this week – struggling in a crowd to get my hands on the latest designs… not, not shoes. T-shirts.

Specifically a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert T-shirt.

The guy in front of me, successful in getting an XX-Large of his chosen design, said to me .. ‘I have the T-shirt for every tour they’ve done… and I’ve been to every tour too.’

Cheers for that man – he totally gets the idea of gig T-shirts.

You must never buy them online. Or at a shop. You must buy them at the gig – it’s a badge of honour.

It says to everyone who sees you wear it – I was there!

So, to celebrate that man’s insight – I thought I’d show you a few favourites from my wardrobe. Every single one of them purchased in the correct manner – at the gig.

First - the Skynyrd shirt - not exactly girlie, but it makes me remember their spectacular rendition of Free Bird.

Much more girlie - this lovely African as butterfly shirt from the amazing Angelique Kidjo - who first turned me on toe African Blues music

Just up the road in Memphis - all right, it wasn't a gig, but Elvis was in the house.

I don't usually but T-shirts with skulls on them - but this was too pretty to refuse. The Dead playing upstate New York

And how pretty is this - from a gig with the amazing Robert Plant in New York City.

And last, but my no means least, I have to show you this. It’s the T-shirt I had made for my latest book – The Wild One. I won’t be selling them – but will be giving them away from time to time at events where I am speaking. Although I am definitely keeping one for myself.

Aren't they lovely... front and back designed by the fabulous webmaster John using my equally fabulous Choc Lit covers.
