He played the Monmouth festival last night. How do I know? Well, I was there. As you might know by now we moved out of our apartment this weekend. (I should better say 'I' moved out since the man of the house conveniently buggered off to China just when the movers showed up...) Being officially homeless now and with a week to kill before our flight to California I headed for Wales for some R&R - that's where I came across the Monmouth festival.
Much to my surprise the Queen revival band was really good. Granted, I am not an expert on tribute bands (or Queen, for that matter) and I usually jump though hoops to avoid all classic rock. However, they managed to draw almost as big a crowd on a miserably rainy Sunday night as the moderately famous britpop band who played the night before in good weather. My only complaint was that as a proud owner of not a single Queen album I flunked most of the singalongs. (I did ok on "We will rock you"...)
As for Wales - so far all I can say is that it seems pretty but rather wet. Let's hope it will get a bit dryer for the rest of the week.
