Lots of diversity this week. Two members of famed bands go solo. One of the biggest prog names in the world are back sans their high profile drummer. A German guitarist goes all teary and there’s a British band who are big in Germany, but mean nothing here – yet. Oh, and some Scanda AOR and prog.
It’s a hot day in the east of London, as the hordes leave a trail of order and calm at local tube stations and on the buses. Hang on, this a rock festival… where’s the expected chaos? Even the stewards appear relaxed. Trouble? They’re not on the bill this year.
