Rock Am Ring in Germany was great. Awesome performances by the bands of old, like Metallica, Machined Head, Lamb of God. I'm not much for alternative rock anymore, but Shinedown put up a good show. Tenacious D was hilarious and man, do they have a fanbase in Germany! Unbelievable!
Skrillex was also there. My buddy's all over that guy, but I just don't get it. I mean, R2-D2 can do the same trick.
Anyway, I'm super happy my home town has a genuine, decent venue now (www.metropool.nl
). I used to drive 100 miles to Amsterdam to see live music, but haven't been there in a long time, now that I can just hop on my bike and go see whoever I like. Prices are still really fair as well, so I'm gonna see Fear Factory, Soulfly, Gov't Mule for sure
