Slim

Whitesnake

Recommended Posts

The same reason a smaller number of people would be watching a bunch of old age twerps.

I would rather watch someone that has had 6 top ten hits rather than whitesnakes 2 and, play a whole selction of songs from different artists rather than just whitesnake.

Prancing Dad rockers is a bit of a dull sight, at least with Fatboy Slim you get an excellent stage and visual show, and often infuses live sections in his sets.

Creamfields UK 2008 was superb.

 

Obviously there's a taste issue here, but if you think some dick playing records fits TT week better than a rock band like Whitesnake, you need your bumps feeling.

 

Who wants a selection of songs from different artists? It's a gig not a wedding disco!

 

And success wise, Whitesnake have had six top 10 albums, two top ten albums in the USA, one of them triple plantinum. You really don't want to get in a record sales pissing contest here.

 

And prancing dad rockers rule, the Robert Plant gig sold out instantly, what more do you want?

 

I wouldn't no your correct, I could prop up your side of the argument better than mine with the fact that Whitesnake have had 9 top-ten albums released in the UK, the last being in May of last year (Good to be bad).

OK so we will go with a bit of old with Whitesnake, and a Bit of New with Fatboy Slim. Event sorted.

Dad rock, at it's finest!

 

Someone like Fatboy Slim would be a tenth of the cost and would attract a lot more, the perception of visitors to the Island and their taste in music by government officials is as dated and mystical as Paul Daniels' piss.

 

Why would anyone want to watch some balding middle aged twerp playing records?

 

 

I am in Havana every Saturday...lol

 

:blink:

I remember seing him 10 years ago in Derby DJing, he was good mind, lots of electric mixes and tunes you would bever have thought would want to make you dance.

But still in his current run of form without a revival

 

TBH - I quite like some of his stuff but I'd rather see someone playing an instrument than someone playing a record.

They should have booked the Prodigy - "rock" enough to attract the metal-lovers and "dance" enough to attract the people who think that playing someone else's records on stage makes you a musician.

And yet, far too big for over here!

This is the first sign of the apocolypse isn't it?

 

Anymore rumours for band number 2? I'm still convinced they've gone for the Leps.
