made me ashamed to be english.
droning hyper british invasion bullshit. sort of like a fake beatles, except from manchester.
if you don`t know where manchester is, just imagine hamilton with fish and chips...and a lot more east indians.
i went with my girlfriend because she really wanted to go.....reminded her of what it was like growing up.
i knew a fair number of the songs, which made it no easier to sit through...in fact actually hearing them live made it worse because i still have remnants of the shit sound rattling around in my head two days later.
she was happy as a clam, though she realised after an hour or so that my boys and i were sitting stone-faced while the band chewed up our brain cells.
see, my boys and i are guitar players, and we were waiting to be entertained, and instead we got a 60 odd year old shoe salesman telling bad jokes and singing to grandparents in the front rows....
...shit, shit, shit.
i went because i love my girlfriend and wanted to share something she really enjoyed because she`s a sweetheart and i love to share her enthusiasm whenever i get a chance......but....for fuck`s sake sweetie.
she even promised to go to see megadeth with me because she was so grateful that we went with her.
i wouldn`t consider doing that to her for an instant.
maybe the eagles will come and we can go to something we would both enjoy.
i think my boys would like it too.
