Field Of Dreams? - My verdict on THAT gig.......

After stumbling my way across a sea of a million plastic bottles towards the arena exit I was feeling a little low. No, actually I was very low. After 2 days of enduring the classic festival life; Beer, Burgers and more Beer followed by sleeping in the car on the first night, the most anticipated metal gig this summer seemed to fizzle away shortly after 6pm on the Sunday. Due to Slayers Showtime being wrongly advertised, I managed to miss them AND Slipknot in their entirety. Then after what seemed like a short life time, James and co announced what we had heard rumours about 3 hours earlier....No Lars....the bonus being that the show would go on. As I got to my tent I started to ponder how bad things had been... Missing Slayer & Slipknot, the waiting around in the pit until 10pm, the short show time, no Fuel, no Clover, no King Nothing, no LARS and my tent was soaked! All this for what seemed like the worlds largest Metallica drum karaoke in the worlds largest pub, with the worlds most expensive beer. Not impressed. After a short sleep and preparing for the 200 mile journey back home, my thoughts changed dramatically. FUCKING HELL! That gig WAS very special. Yes - the waiting was shambolic, Yes - the show was short and YES - the set was erm... well used. BUT I now realise that this show will be talked about for years to come, and for the right reasons. Joey Fucking Jordison was Fucking spot on - Full respect to the pint sized masked metallist who played a Fucking blinder. The same goes for Lombardo and Larsen. Being asked at short notice to practice some of the biggest anthems in our music genre, and then go and perform on the headlining slot at a Donington metal fest.....WITH the BIGGEST fucking band on the planet.... Somehow the long wait for the Ecstasy Of Gold to echo across Donington Park seemed well worth it after all. I now sit in the comfort of my home less than 24 hours after a very special day in Metalli-history. The last time I felt like this was after Eric Bells appearance for Whisky in Dublin '99. The gig could have so easily been called off, disappointing 100% of the 60,000+ strong crowd. Instead they played on and pulled off a decent show. And a show that will be talked about for many years. I'll just be glad to say that I WAS THERE!
