went to see fate this friday in my home town, they did put on a killer show with lots of keyboard, not much people though, around 50 people attended at the show. they played all their hits plus one new song taken from their new best of cd.

yes only the bass player left from the original line up. new singer was very good though. funny thing is that many people tend to think that glam & melodic rock is huge in sweden to the fact that there is coming so many new bands from here. went to see faster pussycat/enuff z nuff on the same bill about two months ago, only 100 people or so was there. anyway, i have bai bang in two weeks, not the best band but anyway. and chris laney a month later. crazy lixx, h.e.a.t & wolf are coming this summer as well!

So what's up with Fate these days? Didn't even know they were still going, assumed they broke up completely. It's been 5 years since 'V' now hasn't it? What was the new song like and will there be a new album with the current line-up? What happened to the rest of the band? Why'd they go?

50 people? OMFG, we get more people at our gigs every Saturday and we are only a covers band for christ's sake. What size of venue were they playing? obviously not a major one, but probably a pretty decent sized hall/ club I would imagine. I know they were never a big name like Europe etc, but that is ridiculous. Would love to see Fate live, but it seems unfortunately not many others do anymore.

Backed. I would hand over a testicle as payment to see them live.

At the gig I went to in Munich, Fate was supposed to also have the original drummer Bjarne Holm. But pulled out as he landed a plum gig playing around Europe with a jazz band... Fate apparently almost pulled out of that gig if they couldnt find a replacement. I'm guessing Hank & Mattias have better paying gigs to be bothered with Fate while Jeff & keysman & other guitarists have moved on. Years ago though, around 2003? a few German mates of mine saw Jeff live with his Beatles? covers band in Copenhagen. Wonder if that covers band are still together...?...

they played at this bar that might take around 300 people. they have this best of out here in scanadinavia with two new songs on (with the new line-up). as for a new album i really don´t know but there will probably as they are still active. sad that people are so damn comfortable that they can´t go down to the show for a couple of beers & some good music, the tickerts where only around $ 9, & that ain´t much money in my book to go see a band! check out: www.fateband.dk for some info as well!

    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
