  1. I remember staying with my mates to watch RHCP when they headlined Leeds years back. I stayed on the proviso they rocked and did not come up with some free flowing jamming shit. Tossers walked on staged did exactly that so - improvised jamming shite as their first song - within 5 mins i stomped off to the dance tent. I read later that Melvin regretted booking the lazy Californians
  2. I will be sat with Roy Keane and he is bringing the sandwiches. Any ideas on fillings ?

    First Gig Back

    I was at Underneath The Stars Festival near Barnsley yesterday. I was worried line up would be a bit folky for me , but i loved all the acts. "This sounds like Massive Attack " was mentioned a few times. Lovely festival , everyone seems to plonk camping chairs down for the day , but it was not an issue for me , i just stood or sat on the grass. £4 for a pint of Citra ( no paying for glasses ) and there was a converted horse trailer selling Bandido's IPA at £4.50 which was moreish. Other than for a late night coffee there was no q's for the bar or the loo's , and the food stalls looked amazing. Mr Plant cancelled on the Sat for some reason , but they managed to get The Staves at 24 hr notice - which was not bad going. Lanterns on the Lake also cancelled which proper pissed me off as i was so looking forward to seeing em on a outdoor stage. If anyone from the band or their management reads this then an explanation would be nice.
  4. Why would they ? All the aggro they got over taxes , similar to Metallica and the hunting issue and the metal @ Glasto debate. What i did find funny at the time with Metallica was the NME went to Denmark or somewhere to interview the band prior to Glasto and their manager Peter Mensch asked the NME reporter for all the Metallica backlash quotes from likes of Mogwai and Artic Monkeys - which ended up being on some Metallica merchandise i think. I can just image the NMe reporter quaking as Peter Mensch shouted "Give me it ! "
  5. I wondered if someone would mention that. I was there but can't remember anything of it having hit the Rum Bar that was at the side of the Other Stage for quite a few Mojito''s beforehand. Myself and a mate had secured a comfy sofa and to preserve said sofa we just kept ordering. "Order another I cant be arsed to move " was said a number of times. All those years ago but i can still remember the lime , ginger, mint and rum tipple
  6. Happy Mondays in 1999 or 2000 i think. They were rubbish and what made it worse was Shaun was dressed as if he was going off on safari and Rowena nicked his elephant gun hat , which pissed him off loads. I seem to remember Blondie being pretty rubbish about that time as well.
  7. Sorry - hide in the back then leg it. I thought asking for passes and company uniform was stretching it a bit . But when the festival is over a lift back to their company site where i parked my car would be handy also. Find out tmw if Lemmy can be repaired and hopefully return to the East CV fields.
  8. My friend occasionally sees Mr Eavis in the local supermarket. He will not reveal what he has in his basket , that is a private matter.
  9. Our camper got taken out by a 18 ton lorry near Frome the other day. I found out that the owners of the lorry provide services for Glastonbury every year. So i rung the owners , they were so apologetic about the chaos his driver has caused ( our camper could be a write off and has to come back to Yorkshire on a recovery vehicle ) Anyway chatting to the owner I asked that to make things better, myself and one other should be allowed to travel in the back of a lorry onto the festival site. I knew there would be some good come from it.

    Camping at Worthy Farm

    You cannot blame the kids bless em at a Family Festival If they are waking you at 6.00 am have some Wet Playtime to tire you out, that should get you to 9.00am
  11. Clinton Baptiste did not see it coming .
  12. Such a shame , Beardy was the first thing i thought about this morning when i woke up. Then trying to get the low down i kept having to take work calls so could not get onto the Beardy site.
  13. I place Event Insurance for clients , in fact did one for a Classic Bus Rally last week thats going ahead in the summer hopefully. Festival Insurance is still there it just has a big fat Covid exclusion and everyone has to understand the extent of cover and limitations. Maybe Clinton knows if its going ahead ? Put those physic powers to good use.
  14. Black Deer and Deer Shed spring to mind as two that have confirmed they are on for this summer , neither are up there with the likes of R&L and BST.
  15. Underneath The Stars Festival which is last weekend in July has done the same and pulled ticket purchases for the mo. If they have to have a reduced capacity the do not want to oversell the tickets. Personally i think there are so many festivals confirming that i think Beardy will be OK.
  16. There was the time a young lad was wandering through the markets kicking all the painted bins over , he must have done 10 before security managed to stop him.
  17. Faithless into Coldplay 2002 - Faithless were on fire !
  18. Apparently their new album is influenced very much by Appetite for Destruction. They have done the Indie phase , Brian Cox phase, Les Misérables phase so bring it on
  19. The year we went Mark Carney and his wife attended and were seen at the front of main stage. I am pleased - he needs his rest and better Wilderness than a holiday in Sicily with Uncle Don
  20. With the quick output of lyrics I definitely heard early Alex Turner
  21. I presume they will be looking at a UK or Irish headliner ? Or a European / US act that is big enough to have the clout to get stuff sorted Covid / travel wise ?
  22. I do hope Primal Scream get confirmed again ? , the band i have prob seen most times. If the headliners are Mogwai , Primal Scream & Placebo then my astral submissions to Clinton have worked a treat.
