Stonedead was my second Rock Festival of the Summer. Not bad to say I'm 60 in December.
Regular readers will know I prefer Progressive Rock bands to all the other Rock genres like Heavy Rock and Heavy Metal (I do like some of these genres like seventies, eighties and nineties) And Thrash and.....?
It's situated on the site of a former RAF air base and very fittingly a Lancaster Bomber flew over the 5000 capacity crowd and we waved and cheered at the spectacle.
The festival organisers allowed punters to bring four cans with them. Yes I opted for dear old Newcastle Brown Ale. There was also a beer tent but I only drank four cans. This must be a first because I had no thirst.
It reminded me of a mini Monsters of Rock that we used to visit at Castle Donington in Derbyshire in the eighties and early nineties.
Deraps, Black Star Riders and Blue Oyster Cult (of course) were my 3 favourite bands. Here's some shots:
One of my favourite BOC tracks. Enjoy my blog friends. If they're not Prog I will go to the foot of our stairs. Any chance of April Wine and Styx playing West Cork?
