    A great day...I met Danny on Dublins main street - O'Connell street @ 1400 (was 30 mins last!!)...went and had some food ans then went to my place for about 90 mins for Danny to have a 'power sleep' (as he calls it!!!)...
    We were expecting no more than 30 people at the Sugar club...for some reason we didn't seem to have any kind of expectation in the air. Plus new venue, a bit out of the way etc and also the fact that the gig was at very short notice.....
    In the end, the soundcheck was done....we snuck off for a quick drink (my birthday weekend, y'know...I deserved it..:)...) and by the time Danny was onstage, about 75 people were there (this looked good, the venue was like a small cinema converted and the official capacity was 150)....by the time Danny was about 20 mins in, we had 90 payers and 101 including guests. Much better tuen out than we had hoped for....

    To the set...well, he ended up playing for 2 hours and the response was just great. Including 2 standing ovations at the end of the show. We had lots of Anathema classics....Everwake from Crestfalled was a particular joy and surprise.....a preview of a new song or two....other highlights were Temporary Peace, inner Silence and a very emotional One Last Goodbye...during which Danny was given the respect and quiet that he rightly asked for!

    To finish....we had All you need is Love from the Beatles and a perfect rendition of Imagine.....and lastly, after numerous crowd calls...Danny did Sleepless!....after three attempts to leave the stage and two hours after he started....the eldest Cavanagh bowed down. A total victory!!!!

    A brilliant night and the total highlift for me...simply because of the surprise at how it worked...Maiden's 'Wasted Years'...backed only with Piano!!!!...incredible!!!!

    'Til the next time????

    I'm still laughin me arse off at the state of this poor lads fizzer :lol: this is the effect acoustic gigs can have on de hevvie metal punters.

    But the lad left the most important part of the night out, a storming acoustic version of "heart of steel" that left even me feeling almost all manly and that. but fuck me that new track (flying?) came close to being the highlight of de weekend. Boss like!!

    God...thinking back, I cannot believe how BRILLIANT 'Wasted Years' was with just piano and Danny singing...sorry, to any MaidenHeads...but I think, it blew away the original!...man, he should do it at an Anathema show!

    i wont start the whole discussion again but yeah, i like some stuff on No Prayer, Fear, Xfactor and the newest one. virtual XI is the one who sucks a lot though. they got it completely wrong there.
    and yes, the stuff from 7th son and before is better in general.

    x-factor is a great album. and "como estais amigos" and "futureal" on virtual kick ass too.



    and could someone please get a bootleg of one of danny's gigs?
