"Things have Changed"



In 1996 my friend Pete Dale lent me a Manowar cassette in Art Class and told me this is gonna change your life....it did! Then finally last weekend I saw Manowar play live at Hellfest. "Things have changed" I now have seen Manowar..... thats another thing off my list of things to do before I die. I'm sorry Pete couldn't be there with me to see it in person ..... but he was in spirit! The best band I've ever seen!

The other bands I saw were:

Destroyer 666, Voivod, Wasp, Anthrax, Saint Vitus, Black Sabbath, Vader, Skinless, Immolation, Enslaved, Sacred Reich, Orange Goblin, Electric Wizard, Keep of Kelessin, Napalm Death, Destruction, Suicidal Tendencies........



Ok the crew.... from right to left: McFly, Mongo, Tom, Stu "Hangtime" Smith.....ultimate brothers of true metal!





Mongo like "Destruction"..... "Nailed to the Cross"



Standard Metal Procedure....



This isn't confusing .... 2 french girls, both called Emily....and Stueuro!! These lady's came and joined the party all weekend .... Stueuro looked after them in his special Euro way.



Yes !



King of Metal!!



Festival Shit!



English Culture....



"lady liberty rots away, truth and Justice the American way" Sacred Reich ruled.... the lead singers got really fat and looks like Ben Stiller in the fat suit at the end of Dodge Ball.



Joe and Mongo watching Sacred Reich!



I taught Mongo the idea of "sharing" which he took to new lengths of just walking up to anyone with beer, pointing at their drink and saying "share" and getting beer off them. But he did also share his when he had some....



McFly talking to the neighbours... these 2 Finish girls campd next to us, they had some interesting fish alcohol...



"Hello! McFly"



Immolation were the other band, than Manowar that I really wanted to see, they're palying London this weekend... but they were so amazing ! This is just before Satan appeared and dragged everyone into a avoid....



Mongo like Lobster....



Ozzy......



"Back in the Game" "Fuck the Game I am the game" Mongo was obsessed with having some sunglasses like this.... so I gave him the ones from my car. He even managed to heep them on when headbanging to Destruction.



Me and McFly did the Portsmouth to L'Harve crossing so that we could spend a day skating the Park in L'Harve.... Mc B/s Disaster on the extention. I was stoked to have him a my co-pilot a seriously rad dude!



English Culture and Breakfast at the Park.....



Bye Bye France.....



I just wanna say thanks to all who made the weekend rad, no thanks to all the posers....you know who you are and yes to True Metal!
