H,R,H, AOR Final Day 11th March 2018 Mar15

H,R,H, AOR Final Day 11th March 2018

  H,R,H, AOR Final Day 11th March 2018 First band of the day were going to be on stage two, I liked the name of the band before I even saw them, tHE Idol DeaD. Five lads from Leeds: Polly.. lead vocals, K.C… guitar/vocals, Tim… Guitar, Dan…Bass, ..and Nish…Drums. The minute these guys step on the stage you know you’re in for a good time, looking like a cross between the Sex Pistols and the Clash, they list some of their influences as Bowie, Pistols, Dogs Da’mour, N.I.N. and Johnny Cash. They play a mix of punk and metal or as K.C. told me afterwards “Rock n Roll punk with soul”, they definitely have soul: they delivered an explosive...

HRH AOR 6 DAY TWO. Mar14

HRH AOR 6 DAY TWO.

  HRH AOR 6 DAY TWO. Day two was to be split between two stages: Stage 1 the mash up, and Stage 2 the glam/sleaze stage, obviously you don’t get to see every band due to clashes. Stage one first band The King Lot, a Scottish trio who I describe as melodic with a hard and heavy edge. The three members are Jason Sweeney bass & vocals and drummer & vocals Chris Gillon, last year saw the departure of guitarist Michael Fairbairn so the newly joined young axeman Jay Moir has been enlisted and Jason says he has brought a heavier sound to the band. I really enjoyed these guys with Jason throughout the set joking with the reasonably...

Skid Row @ 02 ABC, Glasgow Mar14

Skid Row @ 02 ABC, Glasgow

  Skid Row @ 02 ABC, Glasgow   Well it has taken a while for Skid Row to hit Glasgow and with new singer ZP it was time to see if they lived up to the expectations and the memories from back in the day. Before I go onto days gone past when I actually had hair other than on my face lets come back up to date with the first support band tonight Bad Touch. For me this is the reason I am here, yes I loved Skid Row, yes Toseland are good but hands down Bad Touch rock my world. It is amazing to me that I first saw these boys over three years ago and my first reaction was why the hell are they supporting, followed by and playing a venue...

Camp HRH Hafan y Mor 8TH-11TH March 2018. Mar12

Camp HRH Hafan y Mor 8TH-11TH March 2018.

  Camp HRH Hafan y Mor 8TH-11TH March 2018. HRH AOR. or Adult Oriented Rock. Welcome to north Wales and the sixth outing of HRH AOR: a mix of rock, sleaze, glam and even a bit of blues Thursday DAY ONE: all acts to be on the main stage. It kicks off with Dante Fox formed in 1989 by female lead vocalist Sue Willets. They are a melodic rock band and I always say that there must be a few nerves on stage when you’re the first band of a three day festival, and I’m afraid it showed tonight; not helping them by having numerous sound problems she looked very nervous on stage and her voice at times was very pitchy. I read that Sue was once...
