Royal blood are ok

Foo fighters used to be decent but not so much now.

Went to see them in Cardiff about 10 years ago, was absolutely buzzing to go... they were absolutely shite.

Foo Fighters - rock music for people who don't like rock music.

Sounds like Greg needs to visit this year...

At the 2002 edition of the prestigious Reading Festival, the Dillinger Escape Plan's performance made national United Kingdom headlines because vocalist Greg Puciato defecated in full view onstage, put it into a bag, and threw it into the crowd before smearing the rest onto himself, proclaiming "This is a bag of shit, I just wanted to show you this so you'll recognize it later on throughout the day" referring to the quality of some bands he felt were appearing that day of the festival. The act nearly got the band banned from the UK for violation of public-decency laws, despite this the band's set was one of the highest reviewed of the entire festival that year, and was later included in a list of the top one hundred Reading or Leeds performances of the decade

Always saw Leeds as some kind of right of passage. It was pretty decent about 15 years or so ago. Seeing bands like Cave In on the main stage was a treat.

I also saw Limp Bizkit, Deftones and Rage Against The Machine who were all in their pomp. Point is, they were huge bands. Now Post Malone headlines?
