    Do you know what rubbish got through, considering 54 were the best by far (even though I was in the bar area for all but 54 and the first two "bands")

    Gaaaaaaaaah fuck! Charlotte just told me that too and I'm rather gutted to say the least! What must the band be feeling having got second top votes yet still not have gone through? It's all rather dubious, but don't worry 54, we know you were the best on the night! Still- fair play to Rob, hope to see the new kit on tour soon and keep the metal flag burning '54!

    that's a bugger :( - who did win out of interest? I noticed the Oasis style lot near the end got a lot of votes

    A new drum kit's better than a kick in the bum tho :)

    awww! bugger! never mind tis not the end of the world.:cry:
    but devil signs up for Rob for being number one drummer, the dude rocks:Smokedev:

    Can Rob play two drum kits on stage? where do the rest of the band stand? Can we clone Rob (is that a good or bad idea!?)?

    :cry:

    That's the problem with competitions like this. Often the winner is chosen because of their genre, not because they're the best on the night.

    Props to Rob though :headbang:

    wasn't really paying much attention to the other bands, they were all a mixture of pop,soul :eek: , a crap pub band (called Roy :lol: ) and various other indie type bands......'54 were the
    only TRUE metal band there .That's why the fucking judges didn't put them in the top 2 - and you're right Selphie, it had nothing to do with how talented or how many votes '54 got (did the votes mean anything to the "judges" ????????????????) - they were the best band there by a billion miles - it was ALL to do with the judges dislike of the genre.
    it was all a

    FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX
