    Yeah- pretty much everyone has said that he was rubbish- a half-hearted performance if that. I was hoping for a return to form with their current album, but he just seems to be continuing to travel further up his own backside...never mind.

    I saw Nine Inch Nails at the o2 last Weds and that was an AWSEOME gig- I enjoyed Janes Addiction even though I only know one song of theirs and it's made me keen to listen to more. I'm happy I managed to get to NIN's last proper UK performance (not counting Sonisphere) and the whole arena singing along to 'Hurt' was such a fitting ending and sounded amazing. Gary Numan made an appearance for two songs- 'Cars' and 'Metal' which was pretty good too.

    I'm tempted to go to Sonisphere, but I'm still undecided at the mo...NIN, Metallica and Alice In Chains are the ones I'd really want to see there at the mo- shame Fear Factory and Machine Head have pulled out though.

    Next gigs at the mo are Faith No More in August and Henry Rollins spoken word show in January- I'd recommend Rollins to everyone! ;)

    Well, after some last minute winning of free tickets by a mate, I'm off to the Sonisphere Festival tomorrow....hope I've remembered everything! [face_hypnotized]

    No time to order any 'Travel Johns', so will have to brave the public lavs [face_worried]

    One more chance to see NIN before they 'split' and looking forward to seeing Metallica and Alice in Chains (not the same without Layne, but still damn good)!

    I am REALLY looking forward to the new Alice in Chains album. I've been listening to the two new tracks- 'Check My Brain' and 'A Looking In View' and they are EXCELLENT. [face_dancing]

    I'm so pleased they managed to come back after Layne (RIP) and they've still got that classic AIC sound...roll on Sept 28th! :D
