Just been (just had 6 hours sleep) to see Slipknot and Machine Head at Newcastle Metro Radio Arena. In my world Machine Head are as big as Slipknot, but hey – who I am I to complain that I saw two great bands for the price of one?

Not really kept up with either band – I liked their early albums but never kept up with them as my tastes changed – but I have to say live they are both really great performers.

I am going to really suffer today after 6 hours sleep, a head full of cold and bunged up nose…
