He was living in the UK but I don't know if that's still the case. Dalone said that they'd been working on & off for 4 years on Kenny's solo album.

Yeah but I saw that band at the time that Dissonance was released & Donnie said the recordings weren't new. I know the liner notes suggest that 4 guys went into 1 studio but was that true ?

When was their last album of newly recorded songs? It always appears that there's smoke & mirrors around how old the songs are & when the recordings were made. It seems that Chip will continue to use Donnie's demos until the vaults are exhausted and it never appears that Donnie is particularly pleased with that.

A character in the British sitcom Fawlty Towers. The actor Andrew Sachs passed away in the last few days.

My least favourite song and a reminder of the over use of Doug's talk box but still a very good band who really know how to work a stage and engage an audience.

Thanks. Fortunate Son is a hilarious inclusion given Lowy's family history.

No doubt that the Daisies have the momentum at the moment and I fear this tour may be an indication to the Answer that their time is drawing to a close despite the welcome bold change in direction of the current single. For those that attended last night, is the Daisies' set still heavily reliant on covers ? They played 6 covers in their headline set earlier in the year. I know most of those a

Romeo's Daughter always had a live keyboard player up until Tony Mittman left in 2013. Since then they still usually have somebody on keys for UK shows but they have played a small number of gigs here without that fifth member.

Diversity is what makes Download successful. The headliners always reflect different strands of Rock / Metal and there'll be a good smattering of classic rock / traditional metal across the weekend as well as many great bands that I'll have never heard of that turn out to be really good. Here are the headliners since the festival began: 2003 - Iron Maiden / Audioslave 2004 - Linkin Park /

It will be a great weekend, it will be a great bill & they will play to tens of thousands of appreciative fans. With 15 bands announced & 135 bands still to unveil how can you call this a crap bill ?

Pretty happy with those headliners. SOAD were fantastic in 2011 & always wanted to see Biffy.

About a third of the set was covers (3 from Journey - Separate Ways, Don't Stop Believing, Loving Touching Squeezing + Survivor's High on You as a tribute to Jamison). A good selection of 707, The Storm & Two Fires made up the rest.

I'm not one to bash the Beeb but their music policy has suffered for 20 years as a result of certain label execs and record pluggers being married to djs & decision makers. Not surprised that Jools would accept Joanne & Blackberry Smoke though. I would think those 2 acts are completely in keeping with the kind of act that's appeared on Later over the years.

It's a fair point but saturation also needs to be taken into account. I was at the Cats' show in Manchester on Friday but would have also liked to have been at The Enid in York & Hotter than Hell in Halifax the same night. On top of that it was my third gig of the week and buying Cats' merch meant I couldn't really afford to attend Chantel McGregor last night. I actually feel guilty when I do

... and the vocals in Manchester last night were very reminiscent of the current version of AS's Sweet in places.

I had the same disappointment when I first heard Pride. The lyrical themes on Fight to Survive were completely different from other bands at the time & with the second album they fell in line with the most shallow bands of the genre. Having said that, I always thought the tunes & playing were a cut above. All Burn in Hell Cry for Freedom It's Over

Picked up a few of those mentioned but never really liked them as there was such little continuity between tracks, but then Striktly for Konnoisseurs came out and pretty much informed my record buying for then next couple of years.

I remember the Rocco DeLuca album Kiefer was involved with being pretty good .... must dig that out. I'll give this one a listen but there's always an element of novelty about actors' musical projects that for some reason detracts from the quality of the product.

I wouldn't knock her delivery Doug - we live in an age where over-wrought is often the norm from tv performers but I am quite happy to see an understated performance that allows the vocal to be heard without distraction. I don't know the song but it's clearly performed well. Unfortunately it seems that hundreds of thousands of kids can sing at this level now that so many can practice along to rea

I was half way back in the stalls last night & the crowd around me was largely disinterested with people on their phones & paying no attention but there was a fantastic roar from front stalls & upstairs between songs.

Possibly why they didn't play it in Manchester tonight then ..... but the voice was outstanding on everything they did play.
