Firefest 2014

Fantastic lineup there at least from my perspective. Danger Danger is one of my all time favorites so the inclusion of them with all five original members is crazy good!

 

Wish Plunkett wasn't out of the picture for the Autograph set but I suspect they will still bring it with Daniels.

 

Firehouse: always fantastic and they are playing the debut from start to finish: killer!!!!

 

Love Coney Hatch, B.A.D.and BnB, too.

 

Really hoping Andrew can steal a few of these bands for MRF4. Chicago is infinitely more accessible for me.

 

So it is the Canadian Blvd and not the Euro band playing FF?

Canadian BLVD :-))

 

Not sure about Black n Blue - not familiar with their material, and looking on You Tube is seems pretty basic straight ahead rock with dodgy vocals

H.E.A.T, Boulevard, Pretty Maids, Coney Hatch, Brother Firetribe, From The Fire, .Of The rest, Shy, Danger Danger and Firehouse maybe but seen before, but the rest... No thanks. Will seriously have to think about going as 2 bands a day I really want to see is pushing it.

 

The unsigned band vote should have been Moritz by a mile, although they should have been automatically on the bill imo.

Mate, check out songs like "Without Love," "Rockin' On Heaven's Door," "Nature of the Beach," "Miss Mystery," "Hold On to 18," "The Strong Will Rock," "Sight for Sore Eyes," "The Snake"...

Why should Moritz be automatically on the bill?

 

Apparently the FF guys turned down around 10 other class melodic rock acts - most of which are probably far better than Moritz.

 

There were over 5000 votes cast, far and square, and Moritz didnt make it into the final 3.

 

To be honest I didnt vote, but Angels or Kings and Fahran sound better than Moritz to these ears.

 

Jimi Anderson band sounded pretty damned good as well.

 

So I would guess that those 3 bands are in the running on merit.

 

Cheers

Because they are one of the best UK MR/Aor bands around at the moment, and I think something like Firefest should be supporting more of the good UK bands that are around (and I don't mean just FM either).rather than some bands that are reforming/have in the past reformed, just to play a one off gig and get a few extra bums on seats. Moritz are a quality live band and are imo.much more deserving,. I understand they want to go out with a bang with this one, but compared to some of the acts on the bill, Moritz (and AOK and maybe the other 2 aswell) would have fitted in very nicely alongside some of the bigger names.

Sorry mate but id rather see the bands on the bill.

 

Id take blvd, babylon, pretty maids etc a million times over Moritz.

 

I can only make one day so it was a tough choice between sat & sun which is also great (apart from Axxis!).

So, who else decided to attend Firefest this year? Or is it just going to be Glen, Andre and myself?? I will be there all 3 days, making the most out of it.

Well... every year I want to go. But every year I can't afford it.

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.
