were any other DiSers going?
everyone else refused to go so i'm going on my own :( Say hello! I look basically like my profile pic.
it isn't the best of those four (Paul Stanley)
Love Gun is my pick of the studio albums
I might have to listen to the Paul Stanley one again but I really like the Ace one. And surely we can agree that the Peter Criss one is by far the worst. "That's the Kind of Sugar Papa likes" :(
he wasn't even allowed to play on all the proper kiss albums by that point
:( Peter Criss just makes me sad.
Sunn O))) is going to be good though anyway!1
Even his twitter is depressing.
"Hoping to have the real Catman here soon!"
black sabbath, kiss three times, alice coopers band, paul stanleys band, brian mays, and some others
They are the reason I used to read blabbermouth. For odd job men projects. Like his:
"He has also occasionally performed and recorded with his own Eric Singer Project, featuring, among others, his former Kiss bandmate Bruce Kulick and former Mötley Crüe lead singer John Corabi. Three releases have resulted from this collaboration: the studio album Lost And Spaced (1998), consisting completely of covers from classic rock songs; the live album Live In Japan (2006); and the DVD Live At The Marquee (2006)."
Eric Singer and the guy who replaced Vince Neil in Motley Crue. The dream ticket!
Glenn Hughes is good blabbermouth.net fare (although I don't _think_ he is in that photo). He was singer of Deep Purple mk.4 and Black Sabbath mk.23! Did a solo album with John Frusciante and Chad Smith!
he's toured with ozzy and dio so far ... surely tony 'the cat' martin can't be far behind
it's practically crying out for a Cat supergroup feat. him and Peter Criss.
well not loads of grouchlands but some. I actually went to a Sunn gig with a female one time!!1
There were four that I could see, maybe five. And given that the capacity was something like 200, that's 2%, maybe even 2½%. It's about 4 times as many Paul Wellers there were in the crowd, for one thing.
think about it - it's basically the gig equivalent of sitting on a washing machine.
it's in the smaller hall - but it's still a venue designed for folk and orchestral stuff so the acoustics are incredible.
i've seen folk bands sing without mics acapella while sat on the balcony and it's sounded perfect so this should be deafening
but I also want to go see Flying Lotus / Battles in Manchester. And what's more it's the day after ATP. And i live in York.
It's a maybe. But what an awesome gig it would be. It would only be made slightly more awesome if they were playing in Hall 1 (massive long concert hall) instead of Hall 2 (the round one). But a minor gripe really.
i might just be dead after atp, hmm.
work could not be over fast enough today. If there's an orchestra or something playing in the big room it's going to be drowned out isn't it? I don't think those doors are soundproof.
I hope we get the excited music director introducing everyone.
They were awesome as always. Interesting mix of folks too all standing motionless staring at a wall of fog surreal and beautiful all in one. You'll have a ball!
I was right in front of the speaker at the left hand side, the feeling of the sound was unreal, the whole thing was unlike anything i've ever seen before
definitely go, it's really worth it, I loved it!
Did you see Bong?
but what I heard sounded promising. Enough to buy a CD anyway - which I did.
they are awesome at the massive buildup to the loud bit. None more better.
What do think they spent the £60m on?
getting back from a long ATP weekend on the monday prevented me from going to the sage date, and didn't get tickets in time for the manchester date. Real shame, because i think i would've loved it.
I liked Skullflower a lot and Sunn were pretty good too, Attila's vocals (and costume things) are something to behold! I didn't 'feel' the sound as much as previous Sunn gigs but it was still hellishly loud. Plus you got the added bonus of seeing hundreds of crazy X-Factor fans running around at the start because Cheryl Cole and the X-Factor guy from South Shields were singing outside the main hall.
but i thought sunn were spectacular - probably more impressive than anything i saw over the weekend at atp
