The headliners are weird. Maiden and Metallica are fairly standard and predictable but The Prodigy Are they even rock/metal?

TBH I would love to see the prodigy, I have the World's on Fire DVD and they certainly rock, here is a clip from Rock am Ring, certainly better than a lot of bands I have seen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOu1H5CRGPI

Indeed but i have a fondness for Maiden having seen them in a pub with Paul Di'anno fronting before they made it big, even a few years ago one of their former members Clice Burr( Now Deceased } made it to the closing of one of their venues IE The Ruskin Arms Manor Park now closed.

In a specially adapted motor as he was ill at the time.

No indeed not.

I guess i am just a bit emotional over the Rock Bands i have supported over the years who have lost members.

Including Phil Lynott.

Quite.

We need to support new rock bands and musicians and help them become more widely appreciated so that they can carry the mantel when the legends are all gone. We need new legends.

Yes that is so i agree hopefully they will come forward .

Myself one of the best Gigs i saw Last year was Phil Campbells all stars at Norwich,they were ba-- Blistering and Phil Campbell is the same age as me 53.Met him afterwards really nice Guy,he met everyone that wanted to speak to him.

Also to me Micheal Schenker is on the up and up again after a difficult time.

We need more legends true butr do the said venues exist to let them come through.

Michael Schenker is fantastic. One of the most technically gifted AND creative players I can think of.

One of the better gigs I went to last year was Million Dollar Reload in a grotty pub in Derry. Hopefully they can push on and go the distance.

Check out the independant label, Ripple Music. They are doing some interesting things in the rock world.

True saw him three times last year with a meet and greet at one (Norwich Waterfront} was great fun he made me laugh ,also met all the band at Sheffield Plug they signed everything.

Will check out the independent Label Ripple Music thanks.

Schenker is on tour the first three months of this year in the USA and Japan hopefully returning to Europe soon.

Though two members of the European Tour for "Temple Of Rock" are not touring the US with him.

The Prodigy have headlined Download before. Not a band i would choose to see but as i've got my ticket for Sonisphere I'll watch them.

As Sonisphere was cancelled two years ago and didn't happen last year they needed to guaranteed "bums on seats" headliners to re-launch the festival in the UK, hence Maiden and Metallica.

Maiden have said they will be doing a re-worked "Maiden England" set, but including more of their rarely played, these days, early catalogue. Metallica's set is "by request", so their set list will be chosen by the fans.

For me Alice In Chains, Mastodon, and Airbourne are great additions to the line-up!
