We Were All Feeling A Bit Shagged And Fagged And Fashed

by Rainier on Aug. 30, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Wow, that was one loud concert! My ears are still ringing, and I was even wearing earplugs to muffle the sound a bit. The gig was great, though. Lots of the new songs but also several Guns N' Roses ones and a few from Velvet Revolver. The vocalist Myles Kennedy was damn good, and if Slash only owned the GN'R material/band, that guy would even be a fitting replacement for Axl Rose. Surprisingly enough, the opening act, Taking Dawn, was rather engaging and made quite a valiant effort to warm us up for the main course.

Prior to going to the concert, we watched Burn Notice (good) and The Bounty Hunter (entertaining).
