Spent last night skanking to the Beat (ranking roger and his son) and The Selecter in a double ska bill at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds.

Then this morning I managed to grab tickets to see the Foo Fighters in June next year at the Olympic London Stadium

Not seen them before so very much looking forward to it :barscarf:

I saw the Beat (including Saxa) in 79/80-ish, supported by The Photos (with the stunning Wendy Wu). Both groups were brilliant. Spent three and a half hours dancing and then went to a party. I was due to play a match the following morning, but woke up with calf muscles like concrete and could barely hobble to the coach.
I saw The Selector a couple of times. I could take or leave most of their records, but loved them live.

Seen both bands 3/4 times each before, both put on a very energetic show - I prefer the Beat to the Selecter musically and also find Pauline Black a little too affected (her speaking voice comes across as faux American to me ) and preaching to the audience.

Sorry it was Foo Fighters I’ve not seen before if I didn’t make it clear.

The mood and tempo of the various parts / segments of this piece are continually changing so it is worth listening beyond the opening 10 minutes... 8)

Was flicking through my iPod on the train to work this morning and happened across my Dio collection. Been listening to a lot of Volbeat and Metallica lately and haven't listened to Dio in a while. So popped them on. Man, you ever put on some songs and it just comes flooding back how fucking great a particular band were? 8) Dio were awesome, particularly the early stuff with Vivian Campbell on guitar. 8)

Hard to believe Ronnie is dead over 7 years. :(
Holy Diver is a fucking choon,
Klllswitch Engage do a wicked cover of it too....

Metallica sunday were unfuckingbelievable,Hetfield for the next Arsenal manager!

I saw them a few times on the black album tour and a few times since, though I gave them a miss around the reload/st Anger time.
Glad they were good, but there is no way I was going to pay £90+ to see them.

Hiya RG..Just saw your post..Yes, it is Excellent...I enjoyed his previous album "Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar" but this is definitely up there...He works with some excellent musicians form all walks of music life and seems to have found his Mojo again.

Agreed mate.
I also like the fact that he is so grounded considering his career. He apparently enjoys a couple of pints after playing football with local lads on a plastic pitch in Kidderminster. :barscarf:
It's a pity that he is a Wolves supporter. :D
