Holy Fucking Shit

Best. Sonisphere. Announcement. Ever.

This year Sonisphere, a metal festival hosted about 1000 yards away from my back garden, will be sporting Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica on the bill. Oh, and Slipknot too, and Biffy Clyro but not so worried about them.

I read an interview with Charlie Benante of Anthrax where he mentioned that he was THRILLED to be finally appearing at Knebworth, THRILLED. I wish he had mentioned this in the mid-eighties as I was living in Knebworth and would have been well-chuffed with Anthrax doing gigs in my back garden whilst my parents were away on holiday. We had a big garden, back then, ideal for impromptu Anthrax gigs. Would have been brilliant.
