G n' R

So the show was pretty good the other night. Long and late, but pretty good. I have not been out that late on a school night in a long long time...

We got there as Die Mannequin was finishing up, no real dissapointment missing them...

Next came the Suicide Girls, an interesting show indeed... Lets just say they are young ladies with variuos... talents...

The Trews came on around 10:00 and they played for about an hour. I have only seen them live once, opening for Nickelack a few years ago, but I was very impressed. I think that these guys are going to be around for qute some time, at least here in Canada... Anyway, their performance was excellent.

So, after about a 45 minute wait while the stage was changed over on came Axl and the "new" Guns N' Roses. Of course the fist song was Welcome to the Jungle and the energy and feel was awesome! Axl did his usual dance moves, the "slithering snake" and the "arms out foot stomp while backing up" or whatever you want to call them. Aside from being a bit thicker through the midsection he looked pretty much like the Axl we watched in videos so many years ago...

They continued to play all of the great songs, It's so Easy, Mr. Brownstone, Sweet Child O' Mine, etc... and it was really very good. The only problem was that after the first 4 - 5 songs most of the crowd had to sit for a while because we were all so tired... We are just not used to being up that late anymore...

I did manage to stick it out til the end though, an awesome version of Paradise City rounded out the final encore at about 2:00 am.

It was certainly not the Guns N' Roses we grew up with but I think they are on the right track anyway. I guess we will just have to wait and see whether or not Chinese Democracy ever comes out, they played a couple of their new songs that should be on the album and they were pretty good.

Welcome to the Jungle...

Tonight is the big Guns N' Roses show and I am pumped!

Tickets are selling fast today because they decided to offer a 2 for 1 deal to boost sales... Kind of sucks for the people who already shelled out the big bucks but they will give you one extra ticket for two that you have if you head down to the box office...

Reviews have been pretty good with the excepton of the Portland show, or should I say No-Show, but hey, it's Axl Rose, what do you expect!

If I can still function tomorrow I may post a review...

Our laws...

Canada is a great country, I am very proud to be a Canadian. But I have to say that we really need to look at some of our laws and how we sentence criminals. Recently a US sailor was killed in Halifax by a person who had previously stabbed someone else:
In April 2002, he jumped Matthew Barton from behind without provocation, stabbing him 14 times, including in the back of the head and the neck. Barton's girlfriend, Ghazala Ali, tried to stop Wright, so he stabbed her, too.

When all was said and done the actual sentence was 67 months, but the judge gave him double credit for 13 months he'd spent on remand, reducing the total time to just 41 months.

And check this out:
Cell phone calls to police were central to getting a P.E.I. man off the highway and behind bars, as he was convicted for his fifth drinking and driving offence Wednesday.

Donald Howard Axworthy, 35, was sentenced to seven months in jail.

So you can get charged for drunk driving 5 times and get 7 months in jail? Is this a joke?

If Axl Rose decides to show up we are going to see Guns N' Roses. How cool is that!?!
