Aerosmith - Hyde Park - Sunday 24th June

Got there late as had been at the Oval for Surrey's Twenty20 match. Therefore missed the Answer and the worst of the heavy rain! In fact only caught Joe Satriani and Aerosmith.

All a bit damp, but I though Mr Tyler & Co were really good - even if there were a few too many ballads. Had to remind Richard the next day that another CHART ACT had been seen with the inclusion of at least one of Run DMC turning up for "Walk This Way".

I gather Brian May was backstage - shame he didn't make an appearance on stage!

The Answer - Borderline - Wednesday 20th June

Pre-Hyde Park warm up for the Irish Rockers. If you read my previous entries, you'll know that I think this is a really good band and tonight was no exception. They even did a version of Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion".

Gary Moore - Shepherd's Bush Empire - Friday 8th June

Always a bit wary of Mr Moore these days as you could get a lot of obscure blues in the set. I needn't have worried as we got a set combining the best of his blues material, with a bit of the "Mondsters of Rock" stuff thrown in. Highlight for me was "Don't Believe A Word".
