All the photographers were aiming their cameras at Cristina Scabbia, I didn’t even realise there was another singer in their band until their set started! I wonder how he feels about not appearing on all the dozens of magazine covers I’ve seen Cristina on.
The music lacked spontaneity for me, it all seemed too reheased.

I was watching the excellent band before Fightstar (From First To Last) who were having loads of bottles thrown at them. It can’t possibly be because they were rubbish, they were one of the best bands of the weekend. So then Fightstar had a few bottles thrown at them, as did every other band on that stage, and they made a big deal of it. Which they had in common with prima donnas Guns and Roses.
They need to be wrapped in less cotton wool.
For the Bullet For My Valentine shots, I needed their management to authorise which photos I sent to my agency as they want control over the band’s image. I really don’t see the need for this, but that’s the way it works and they were kind enough to let me on stage with the band so I respected the way they work. The same management look after Fightstar, so I asked for permission to send a few shots to my agency. It was a flat out ‘no’, even after I showed them the photos. I just don’t understand this. They’re so busy trying to control the band’s image, but he’s not in Busted anymore, he’s in a rock band and this kind of mollycoddling is not in keeping with this genre.

Fantastic band, great guitar playing and charisma. I’ll definitely try to catch more of them.

So many people have told me how great this band is… to be honest I really didn’t like them at all but that’s just my taste. The singer looked like he was pretending to be Ozzy Osbourne.
