what about hair. Metal guys always have that serious hair thing. is that included with style?

Gwyn said...

Good to hear Jon's got a dubious past too. Never made it Donnington, but I was a big Suicidal Tendencies fan and had a denim jacket covered with the likes of Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica. Also I biroed in Enya too just to be inclusive...

Wohs Doog yrev.

Nothing wrong with being a Metal fan...

I used to play in a Metal band... not keyboards though!

However, I do play keyboards (as well as guitar & bass... not at the same time!) So Rob isn't alone in liking Keyboards. However, I don't know the different models, and I don't own a single KraftWerk or Jan Hammer album, so I'm not as geeky as Rob :p

Back to the ROCK!

I never got to Donnington either, but I've been at the front of an Iron Maiden concert. I used to have a leather jacket, ripped jeans and Cowboy boots. I also had the denim jacket covered in patches from AC/DC to Guns N Roses. it had a great full-back patch of Eddie from Iron Maiden.

Although I think I'm turning into a bit of an aging rocker, I don't care much for some of the more modern gimmick bands (The Darkness, Slipknot). GWAR were funny though.

Great show guys! Turn it up to 11!

Wizard's sleeve ? Rob, I'm shocked at the smut that you, Mr Clean, are aware of...!!!

I nearly fell off the ladder as I was painting my livingroom ceiling whilst catching up !

What can I say, the whole first post thing is just pointless...

anywho...

violin in metal:

They didn't have one usually, but MEGADEATH had a wicked violin riff in their song "Insomnia"

I like to see is that if you do look up "wizards sleeve" in Google. You can buy it on ebay ;-)

Green Day had violin in their song Good Riddance.. It was good!

Robs rendition of 'we will rock you' was fantastic - I'm glad I wasn't in a public place when I listened to that. Great show.
