Andy Gill, Q, November 1991

IT'S AUGUST 1991, and rock personages everywhere are cashing in on the summer season. Simple Minds pack Wembley Arena. Prince (temporarily) contemplates an outdoor spectacular in the grounds of a stately home. The Grateful Dead chug their way gently round the Enormo-domes of America, indulging their perennial hobby of setting ever bigger records for ticket receipts.
