    I liked the idea of aclassic rock festival.My dream bill would be
    Black Sabbath
    Deep Purple Mk2
    Iron Maiden (with Dickinson)
    Judas Priest
    Thin Lizzy
    Ac/Dc (with Bon Scott)well it is a dream bill
    Rainbow (with Dio)
    Motorhead
    Saxon
    Just imagine all those egos on one bill!
    Anybody else got a dream festival line up

    Yeah, They rock. Heavy and melodic. A lot of the NWOAHM bands like "avenged sevenfold" and "Killswitch engage" have copied their style.

    Check them out here.

    I would reccomend "colony" if you want to check them out :headbang:

    MIdnightrider - I think you got my dream festival in one go! Even down to Bon coming back from the grave! Brian Johnson can come on for the encore!
    I think Rush would have to be in there for me. And a small setlist from ZZ Top would be cool!
    And I think we have missed out one major act for a super dream festival - Led Zepp!

    Valanx - yeah, I think Lemmy has now hit 61! Considering his lifestyle, he is looking bloody great! He will definately not be used for a Government anti-drugs & alcahol campaign!
    Motorhead are great and I'm now going to have to pursue a ticket for this gig! But it will seem weird to see Biff as a support act!
    However, Motorhead is one act I need to see before they call it a day, and their new album 'Inferno' is excellent!

    I saw Motorhead at Nottingham Rock City last year so i thought i`d give this 30th anniversary bash a miss. Trouble is now Saxon have confirmed i want to go. but i think you`ll find the gig is a sell out.

    Cheers for the eBay update, Gregger - I've never had any problems with ticket sellers on eBay. By the way - what an excellent time to visit London! Enjoy yourself!
    Lizzie, I know exactly what you mean. All the artists I listen to these days are at "Grandparent" age! But this just make's 'em cooler for me!
    Besides, these guys are still rocking better than the kids' stuff these days, and there is a humour there that is entirely absent with the new-age Metal bands!
    And, regarding MotorHead - yeah, I prefer Saxon. After all, they are my favourite band! But MotorHead do Rock big Time! Also, if you listen to the 'Wheels Of Steel' album, there is a definate Motorhead influence in the sound and structure of the songs. I think that Graham Oliver was into Motorhead alot. Much of his stuff has a MotorHead vibe to its guitar style. There have also been several Saxon songs that, I suspect, were composed by Graham with blatant, Motorhead inspired riffs.

    Fair play Saxon-Japan if you get over to Solvesborg and London. I've always fancied going to Japan for a gig,especially a Priest gig. Maybe one day. This year I'm heading off to Athens for the Rockwave Festival. It's basically the Ozzfest lineup (Sabs,VR,BLS etc) but in glorious sunshine and ,hopefully, no cheese and tomato sandwiches or bottles of piss! I'm combining it with a week's holiday on a Greek island. :headbang: I'm not one for lazing in the sun so try and arrange holidays wherever there's a gig. I've been round Germany a couple of times and seen Saxon,Aerosmith,AC/DC,UFO and Deep Purple whilst there. I've been to Paris (Aerosmith) and Ghent (KISS) and NYC (Aerosmith again!). You see,if it wasn't for R'n'R I'd probably only get as far as Scarborough! Is Max Jaffa still going? :D

    Nice one, Bert - I'm exactly the same! I need a decent reason to leave my flat, let alone Country!!!
    Saxon-Japan - welcome to the forum, My Good Man! It's going to be great to read your views on Saxon/Metal-related topics in the future!
