I got my 4 quid back in 1989. Did the promoter not pay out to everybody ? You should go & sit in the side room & listen for free. That'll be £4's worth in 2015.

Saw that Malc at the Snooty Fox had splashed out a lot to land this show. I hope that it gets sufficient promotion.

Quite surprised that Rockingham haven't followed the Firefest model of insisting on exclusivity, especially for the bigger names.

I didn't think I spoke swedish either but after 26 seconds she clearly says Would you show us yer bra ?" so it must be an easier language to learn than I thought.

"half decent" Jimmy. In '86 they were 25% decent and now they are 50%. Don't like any of the albums except Shout and the Corabi one. ....... Still, I like flame throwers & go-go dancers, so they're worth seeing live :)

Was sufficiently impressed on Sunday to plan to attend too. I had only seen them once before (1986) and they've turned into a half decent band in the last 29 years.

Well 2 months in hospital is pretty severe but he was back working with the band for the Dynasty tour. ...... Oh & with regard to the insurance, according to Lydia, Fritz was named as the driver. Not sure how that worked with him being trapped presumably in the passenger seat but ....

I do have a list somewhere Rich. This was a rented Porsche 928 that Peter wrapped around a lamp post in Marina Del Rey. It was Fritz's birthday. Peter went through the windscreen, had broken ribs, burnt fingers and a concussion. He was in hospital for a week, had plastic surgery on his fingers and had to wear braces on his hands. Fritz was caught in the car as it burst into flames.

Yeah I meant that they were the two that have confirmed that they were told "you may be needed tonight" not that they actually played. Fritz was in the crash with Peter on the last day of Phantom shooting (27th May 1978) and spent two months in hospital.

Bun E Carlos in '77 & Fritz Postlethwaite (Road Manager) in '79. It wasn't as if they had a stand in touring with them just in case but there were worst case scenario discussions ...... when your drummer is completely comatose an hour before hitting the stage, and needs adrenaline shots into his heart, discussions will be had.

It's a combination of visual distraction, crowd singing along, sheer volume etc. that reduces the impact of how grating it can be. Don't get me wrong, he's way passed his peak and there are vocal parts he shouldn't attempt and too many 'PEEEople Let me Hear Ya's where the cracks are really pronounced but all in all, for me, he still gets away with it.

Can't bare to watch any YouTube footage from the last 5 years because of Paul's voice but live it just isn't as noticeable and it certainly isn't an issue that would stop me from seeing the band. Likewise, I will moan about the setlist but was quite happily singing along to Shout it out Loud etc. on Sunday night. I thought the stage was pretty impressive & loved the archive footage on the s

The chanting for a UK tour at Download seemed to take the band aback. After what happened with the 2010 tour Live Nation would be well advised to only put 4 or 5 shows on sale & keep a couple of dates open.

The official statement was: It is with great regret that we must advise you that TRIXTER will not be able to appear at Firefest 2013. Both the band and Firefest, and no doubt long standing fans of the band were looking forward to their first UK appearance scheduled for Saturday October 19th. Unfortunately one of the band members has some personal matters that require his full and undivided att

I've stopped watching YouTube clips of live Kiss shows in recent years but I'm looking forward to seeing the band one more time at the weekend. I do want to catch a little Suicidal Tendencies too so I may actually have to duck out during Hell or Hallelujah / Calling Dr Love.

Reading the title my first thoughts were more succinct but meant exactly the same.

The logo design is more in keeping with an early 80s UK punk band so, in my mind, doesn't do the band any favours. Even worse that it's appearing on posters at such a poor resolution.

I think Alexx is responsible for putting together this tour (alongside Alex Grossi) and is part of Cherie's band. I think Tommy Wagner is in too, so it would be surprising if there were no German shows.

I have the signed Vintage & Rare from 2007 - I can't see that I would have paid £25 for it and I didn't even notice it was signed until some time later.

There are several stories of Gene's involvement with Smokehouse but I never heard anything about that extending into the 80s. Free has said that Gene was always helpful with his career and helped him land the gig with Shalamar, but I never heard that there was any continued contact between Gene and any other members of the band. Maybe the 80s version of the band submitted a demo to Simmons Record

Would prefer more of a hook and less repetitive verses but appreciate that the laid back approach is what he was going for. The sound and production are great for this kind of song. You should be proud, I would be.

If ever a band needed a firm hand it's EZN. I like Monaco but he's too talented in his own right to be scraping a meagre living working for Chip and singing Donnie's songs.

I bow down before the clown prince of putdowns. I commend you for getting as far as the topic of idiocy in your little book of insults, call me when you reach the topic of sarcasm and I'll see if I can dumb it down for you.

Maybe my memory's not that great - I only remember teenage girls sat on the stage ...... unless you were one back then Andy ? Ah, you came the scenic route, first left past the fortress of solitude and straight on through Brigadoon. I grew up in that theatre with family involved in numerous productions and my mum working there. I used to unofficially collect glasses from time to time .....

If we are playing a game of scoring questions, I would say that, on a scale of - 33 to + 36, your tone would score: Confrontation = +11 Disrespect = +5 Entitlement = + 17 Understanding of the priorities of others = -14 Giving you an overall score of mildly offensive but insufficient to waste time over.

It was the Civic Theatre (now the Victoria) not the town hall and it was a temporary floor covering the orchestra pit. If you can remember FM also blew out the power during the first song too. Gotta get off my arse and get DCD ordered. I was just listening to my White Sister Halifax boot over the weekend. What a band, what a voice.
