I like the way that sidestage bands are mixed in with the main stage headliners... That way shitty bands like Pair A Dice can say they shared a stage with Twisted Sister, Kix, etc.

Yes, I called Pair A Dice a shitty band.

And by the way, is it in Herman Rarebell's contract that he be billed as "Legendary Scorpians Drummer Herman Rarebell" or is that just a fetish?

I'm going to start referring to myself as "Legendary Iconic Representation of a Genre of Music from a Time Gone By Joel Valentine"... Gee, THAT ought to increase my cred.

Maybe I can get there if I advertise myself as "Chessie--unemployed fangirl of a time gone by?" :P

herman ze german huh? i really need to see more names, a few big ones would help. honestly with the lack of summer concerts being announced locally i may end up going to a day or two providing they have a better daily lineup than they did last year.

Make sure to bring you'r own states real beer becauce all the sell there is 3.2 which ohio got rid of back in the day ,like 1983 what gives ok?? and forget getting the vip tickets it's not worth spending the extra money the real partiers are in general addmission.I personally have been to both and have had a hell of a better time in the general addmission camp grounds.What about Krokus?? whitesnake,Joan Jett, Pat Benetar,Europe,April wine and one the thee greatest bands to come out of the 80's DEF LEPPARD!!!!
