In memory of the late great Rory Gallagher, I remember being at a Rory Gallagher concert in the Stadium in Dublin and as William says... "the whole floor a drum" for those not familiar with Rory Gallagher here is a vid of the Going To My Hometown (1972) yeeha... I know, we are all ancient, how else can you survive... ;-)
