Best album of recent times / ages past / best of
I challenged myself to not listen to any new music this month. I mainly listened to ALL albums I own by Yes, Rush and Rod Stewart.
Gig of the Month
Sound Of Contact / Beardfish / Spock's Beard @ Sheffield Corporation Fri 3 May
Lordi @ Rock City Sat 11 May
Thunder / Whitesnake / Journey @ Notts Arena Sat 25 May
Rush @ Birmingham Arena Sun 26 May
Rush @ Sheffield Arena Tue 28 May
Lordi had a great sound & look great in their Monsterness
Thunder / Whitesnake sounded great doing what they always do best.
Rush were brilliant but I preferred the song choices of the last tour (all of ‘Moving Pictures’) compared with this one (a lot of ‘Clockwork Angels’) but saying that they did do it bloody well.
Due to the new experiences of never heard before bands and the headliners having a new singer doing songs off their new album the winner is Sound Of Contact / Beardfish / Spock's Beard
