Just realised it is 9 days until the trial of Ian Watkins, get the feeling some horrific things are going to come out.
My fiancee has read loads into this trial and the people involved. She's dug up some very interesting things. It will be interesting to see what happens and what information is given during the trial.

On the offchance that this whole thing has been a complete misunderstanding and Ian Watkins is found not guilty of all charges, what does that mean for the future of Lostprophets I wonder?

I believe the rest of them called it quits and split the band a couple of months ago. If he is found not guilty I very much doubt we would ever see him in the public eye again, far too much stigma attached to him for any other band to even consider getting together with him. He will forever be tainted with being the guy who was arrested for THOSE images/videos, regardless of his guilt or not. And no band would want that hanging around their reputation forever would they?

They've already split up. I read it a month or so ago.

Saw that earlier on Youtube but why on earth is METAL Hammer reporting on it?

Sounds great, looking forward to seeing them tomorrow and Saturday! What were the support like? Must confess to have never heard of either Sweethead or Band Of Skulls.

What does everyone make of James Toseland's forays into the world of hard rock?

Two music videos here

http://www.pledgemusic.com/artists/t...mpaign=person7

There is nothing terribly groundbreaking there but it isn't awful either.

Oh I love Five horse Johnson! And I have finally come across someone else who has heard of them! My favourite albums of theirs are The mystery spot and the no 6 dance so check those two out if you haven't already. They also conveniently have a heavy link to my beloved Clutch in that John Paul Gaster the drummer from clutch has played drums on the last two Five Horse Johnson albums The Mystery Spot and The Taking Of Black Heart. Also the fantastic blazing harmonica solo in the Clutch track Electric Worry is done by the frontman of Five Horse Johnson Eric Oblander.

Hell yeah!! Class band. Played Belfast twice (had to suffer Clutch headlining though LOL - was not a fan then of the band - slowly warming to them now).

But Five Horse are awesome - huge ZZ Top style boogie, plenty of blues harp!

I have listened to Double Down and Last Men on Earth and love them. Mystery Spot is next

I did notice the ZZ Top style with them. Must say, it is only now that I am getting into Clutch as well. Never bothered about them previously.

I thought that the first time I heard it too! I heard that and then I had their previous 5 albums within a week!

For Clutch connections, check out The Company Band, who I prefer over Clutch at this stage, and then Fireball Ministry.

Fireball in particular were a big influence on Baleful Creed

Liberty 37 were a brilliant band. They should've been huge but were handicapped from the start as they weren't American.

Yeah The Company Band are a great little outfit, loved the first album not so sure about the pros and cons ep they put out last year though. Didn't seem as good to me just felt like some odds and sods they had left over from the first record. While we are recommending related bands to them can I just recommend the last CKY album Carver City to you all. I know CKY are much maligned due to the unfortunate connection with Jess' idiot brother but that album is an absolute corker!

You got Sign Here, Here & Here - great debut EP from the Company Band?

Pros and Cons slipped through my purchase radar for some reason - off to ebay I go!
