Quite jealous. No Jello Biafra, but how about the other original members, are they still playing?richardw42 said:Dead Kennedys last night. Way, way better than I expected and definitely one of my top concerts this year.
As long as you've got Klaus Flouride and East Bay Ray, you've got the DK sound.richardw42 said:I thought the lead singer was brilliant.
The guitarist and bass player are original. The original drummer pulled out (don't know why) but the replacement drummer is in another group with him so prob a good reason.
Glad you enjoyed themBIGBERNARDBRESSLAW said:The Who, Weller, Kaiser Chiefs, Johnny Marr at Hyde Park yesterday, unfortunately we missed Gaz Coombes.
All was good, didn't really watch Weller, but he sounded good, with 3 Jam tracks in the set.
The Who were better than I was expecting, amazingly tight, but with a real edge too. Really enjoyable.
A few gripes. Queues for the toilets and bars were stupidly long at times, and the thing that really left a sour taste, was the system of sectioning the crowd so all the people with standard tickets weren't allowed anywhere near the front. I was stood at the entrance to one of the expensive ticket sections, and I was absolutely angered by the amount of people constantly pouring out during The Who's set. Most of them looked like they's rather be at a Robbie Williams concert, and only there for the kudos of going to see The Who, rather than actually seeing The Who. Townsend commented on the fact that most of the people at the front didn't seem to know any of the songs, and though he said later he was only joking, I'm sure he meant it, and whether he meant it or not, he was absolutely spot on, as the procession of chinless wonders proved.
As an aside, I was due to go see ACDC this coming Saturday, at Wembley. I bought the ticket for twice the face value. I got a message last week to say that the ticket wasn't now available. I'm not happy! I was REALLY looking forward to seeing them.BIGBERNARDBRESSLAW said:I won't be giving the organisers any more of my money though.
