Got there as HEAT took to the stage, impressed by their enthusiasm, and their own songs as well as the covers they did. Even more impressive was them finding a singer (or two) to stand in for their's who apparantly had heart surgery two days ago!
Roxx Diamond left me cold to be honest. Faultless musicians an all that, but just no songs for me.
Mitch Molloy was outstanding. Had the crowd eating out of his hand. Superb.
Didn't know anything of White Sister, but hey, anyone who straps on the mighty 12ver (Twelve String Bass copywright; The Greates Bassist known: Tom Petersson) is halfway to decent before they start in my eyes. And I was blown away by them. How does such a big bugger as him have such a smooth voice?! Great stuff.
Tall Stories: The band we had gone to see. Loved them before Augeri joined Journey, so was really up for them. Pity the majority of the audience wasn't. Saw a lot of Journey shirts knocking about, but can only summise that those people only knew his Journey stuff and weren't familiar with the Tall Stories songs? A muted response to what was a faultless performance from them. New songs sounded great too. Was hoping if they did any Journey songs, it would be from the his time with them. (For me Higher Place was my choice. One of Journey's best imho) so was suprised to hear Stone In Love for the encore. Hope they get the album out soon, AND tour here with it.
Danger Danger were as ever, a good time party band, that I can take or leave, sorry. (And whats with them using the classic Cheap Trick logo design on their t-shirts? Imitation is the sincerest...etc)
Firehouse, were a great closing set, and impressed too.
A long, long day, but loved it their, and really hope it isn't the last.
A final mention to everyone who organised the event. Especially the stage crews who worked amazingly hard at the changeovers. Hats off, and thanks to the lot of you.
