Hard to believe it is the end of another decade in the 21st century.
Every year I do a top 10 list of albums purchased or gigs attended. I will be doing a separate blog on this towards the end of the year but for now this a look back over the last 10 years on what have been the highlights of the decade.
As you read this please feel free to send in your own thoughts on what your highlights of the decade were. The rules are quite simple. For each year, you nominate one album which was your favourite and one gig which was your favourite for the decade. That’s ten years worth of thinking to do.
