MEMORIES

There were strobe lights that night and the stage was extremely bright and hot. Ian repeatedly had to ask that they take the front spot off him. The strain began to have its effect and, during the final song [Atrocity exhibition] at The Rainbow, Ian had an epileptic seizure and fell violently back into the drum kit. The audience, not understanding the situation, thought it a great finale for the show. Twinny and Dave Pils carried Ian off stage, still in convulsions, and up the stairs where he appeared to recover rapidly
