Leave a reply This time last week I was driving home from Download Festival reflecting on a weekend of great music, and on the funeral of my year-old nephew who was to be cremated just two days later. There is something about Download. Few would argue that Donington Park in Leicestershire has become the spiritual home of rock music.
The place reeks of history, name a great rock band and the chances are that they have played Download. The atmosphere is fantastic, a mixture of fun, craziness, and a love of music that binds the many thousands of fans together.
I think I was more excited about this show than for any band I have ever seen. So what did we get? They played a set of 28 songs in a show that lasted close to 3. The band even took the stage two minutes early! What followed was a masterclass in how to delve into a large back catalog to create an interesting and varied setlist.
Of course, the old favorites like Paradise City, Mr. In fact, we had a total of nine covers in the set with songs by Soundgarden, The Who, and Pink Floyd getting an outing. This was rock royalty in every sense of the word.
So how was the show? In truth, I thought it was a mixed bag. I think he struggled to hit the notes on some of the songs, my friends disagreed.
I must admit that I was a little taken aback to see Axl Rose make more costume changes than Beyonce! I must mention The Struts and Thunder because for very different reasons they both blew me away.
They were just fabulous. Good old-fashioned headbanging rock music that had the crowd bouncing for their entire set. Definitely one of the highlights of a brilliant weekend for me. I last saw The Struts at Reading a couple of years ago and I did wonder how they would go down with an audience of metalheads.
The answer, they went down a storm. He has that same flamboyance, the outrageous styling, and boy can he work a crowd.
The sheer rawness and energy blow me away every time I see them. BFMV have a new album in the offing and I talked about it with Matt and Jason before the show, watch out for that in the next few days. Avenged Sevenfold always turn in a great show, and this was no exception. They are worthy headliners for Download and are always worth watching.
That left me free to wander and to just soak up the festival vibe. The evergreen Rise Against and the rapidly improving Milk Teeth were my highlights of the day.
You can keep the misogyny, the allusion to gun violence and all the negativity to yourself thanks. Finally, even the weather cooperated to make Download a memorable occasion.Random Nights presents: SOUNDS OF SUMMER “S.O.S” Windmill Cove Resort & Marina on Saturday September 22nd Gates open at noon S.O.S will start at 1pm and goes until am.

Sounds Of Summer Lyrics: It's a tractor firin' up / Kids playin' in a field / Four wheels gettin' stuck / A line singin' out a fishin' reel / It's a cooler slidin' in the bed of a truck / A tin roof.
