Do the Download Shuffle
It's that time of the year again - Download. Yes. I was out in the side garden tonight putting up my tent to make sure I remembered how, and as I am going to wing it without a rucsack but with two hold alls, I have a list of what to take. The weather doesn't look too promising, but we'll see. We are not going to have mudslides, I hope. There will be some ducking and diving between stages. On Friday that means missing Lucana Coil to catch Voivod, but I've seen the former twice and never seen the latter, and I have to go because not only does Jasonic - Jason Newstead, ex-Metallica bass player, play with Voivod, the lead singer is one Denis (Snake) Belanger. The man whose surname I 'borrowed' for a certain albino vampire. There may also be some shuffing to catch Duff McKagan's Loaded, then Motley Crue, then Faith No More. Saturday isn't too bad, but Sunday is a bit of a logistical nightmare, which will probably mean missing ZZ Top (another bandI have seen live) tocatch the mighty Clutch - lobsterbacks attack the town again!!!!! Can't wait.

Bands that I intend catching include:

Faith No More, Motley Crue, Opeth, Voivod, In this Moment, The Prodigy, Anvil, Marilyn Manson, Chris Cornell, Lawnmower Deth, The Answer, Fightstar, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Clutch, Dream Theater, Journey, Black Stone Cherry, and The Stone Gods, but I'm sure I'll fit a few more in somewhere.
