Tired, achy, deaf, but I don’t care.
OMFG, they were so good. I was really into the Deftones about five years ago, but somehow forgot about them. What was I thinking? It was such a great performance. Mr Moreno got right up next to the audience. DRZA reported via text message that he was right up there next to him. How utterly excellent.
Sometimes some big obnoxious hip-hop is just what is needed. I’m not sure how it happened, but I found myself making the “X” symbol (forearms crossed in the air). I also waved my hands in the air like I just didn’t care.
Queens of the Stone Age
After a few sound problems they came on at the end on the smallest stage up the top. I wasn’t going to end the day with the Foo Fighter’s stadium rock wankery, so I was glad that the Queens had some good rock to finish with.
Ok, I need some rest. I will write more about this momentous occasion when the strength has returned to my body and brain.
