You ain't wrong there.....that numpty gallagher and his band of merry men would normally be enough to keep most away. Still, with Iggy, foo fighters and a few other good acts glad I am going.

Iggy is proper punk-rock "royalty" imo! The man is a legend: intelligent, witty and unafraid. Modern musicians and pop (up)star(t)s could learn a lot from this guy!
