After an overnight drive from Ireland, including a 3.5 hour ferry ride and encore screenings of "Borat" and "Pulp Fiction" right off the bus's hard drive, we made our way to Knebworth in England, there the annual Sonisphere Festival is held on its stately grounds. "The pen is mightier than the sword" said Knebworth's Edward Bulwer Lytton, who probably would have had a hard time concentrating on his writing with all the big crazy METAL going on today. Maybe he would have concluded "the metal is mightier than the countryside". Well, Lytton died of an ear abscess, so maybe he was cranking up the freedom rock a little too much, setting the precident for todays festival which all agree basically resembles what would happen if Guitar Center was expanded into a country village next to a castle. Which is a wonderful thing. A thing of great beauty. The power of metal. The metal of power.
...on another note, today marks 14 years since we lost our beloved friends and weezer fanclub leaders Mykel and Carli. We know they'd have been thrilled that were at such a metal festival today. Tip your weezer cap to their memory.
