I should now be writing about one of the bestgig weeks I can recall. DIO and Slayer (twice) at the Forum and then Motorhead supported by the Damned and Girlschool at Hammersmith. Sadly for reasons of illness/injury DIO cancelled (stomach cancer - nasty lets hope the caught it early) and Slayer (back injury to Tom Araya) got rescheduled for next March.

Only caught the back end of Girlschool due to Tottenham game late early evening kick off - seeing them next weekend at Hard Rock Hell III. The Damned - well have been a fan since the beginning and first saw them as a callow youth at the 100 Club - not in the heady days of 76 but about 79 when they were more established - only got 45 minutes but were great. Usual mix of old and new - neat neat neat, love song, smash it up, new rose and Eloise all got aired.

Motorhead were great but not brilliant. Very similar set to last time I saw them and seemed a bit tired. Still very enjoyable from Iron Fist to Overkill.
