Chuck Berry at the height of his come back career in the early '70s.
I saw him three times during that period, once in Doncaster and twice in Manchester. On the first occasion in Manchester, he walked off stage after just twenty minutes because he was hacked off by his backing band. We in the audience were less than impressed! A couple of years later he was back and gave a superb performance - perhaps he reckoned he owed it to us.
