Review: Whitesnake – Live @ The Odyssey Arena, Belfast (May 16th, 2013)

May 20, 2013

Maiden, Metallica, Sabbath and now Whitesnake – for some reason Dublin is missing out on a lot of high quality metal and rock shows these last couple of years; with the bands choosing to play up north instead.

Ah thank sweet lord Mary, a band who isn’t boring us to depression wrenched tears. God, sorry for the total lack of updates from yours truly (and Anto) recently, the drought was shocking.

Tickets There Likes: Guns N Roses – Use Your Illusion I

There is one band in the world that has always come close to beating Def Leppard to the top spot in my all time favorites.  A band that I consider to be the greatest hard rock band of all time. I first discovered Guns N Roses in 1992, just a couple of months after Def […]
