Default KERRANG! Motorhead (KKK) + Saxon Review, Hammersmith 22-11-08

I don't know if anyone has seen this but im not one bit happy about it this is from Kerrang Magazine Wednesday 3rd December 08, Please Read:

"The fact of late it has become fashionable to claim a fondness to Saxon - often in an ironic and thus deeply patronising way - has gone some way to obscuring the fact they are complete shit. its one thing to mock-rock along to Wheels of Steel, it's quite another to take seriously a group of ageing stiffs waving the St Georges cross about the place. Saxon are oothless, cliched crap."

words by Ian Winwood.

If you wish to read it yourself's its on page 18 of Kerrang! magazine. i think i am going to rename it KERWANK!

Plus post your replies.

Without causing a riot,i read it on my lunch and was gobsmacked,i always new Kerrap (as it was called a few years back),used to be a decent magazine and the likes of Saxon,Maiden,UFO would grace there pages all of the time,but it moved on to the "nu-metal" scene and that meant all the decent bands got missed...it is so sad that in Kerrap after the Saxon appearance at Donington (sorry Download) Festival gave them a great review.....oh well as suggested DON'T BUY IT just let them get on with it.

Who the hell is this guy?????

I can understand that this guy has a right of opinion, but how the hell can he say that a band that has a brilliant live sound & performance, are fantastic musicians with a great front man, whom never play for less than 2 hrs unless forced, are 'CRAP'. VALUE FOR MONEY = SAXON

There is no consistency in that magazine (how can they go from blowing download away during the summer to crap). Come on kerrrrrrrap get some evidence behind your remarks.

How many times has this guy actually seen saxon play a main slot or was this his first and only gig backing motorhead?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Winwood

Seems this guy has pissed off everyone he's reviewed, and has been hated by readers of Metal Hammer when he worked for them.
So i guess writes shit about everything

If you are bothered about "cliché" one should never go to a gig with "old" band, how did he call motorhead then? And why was he there at all? Pfff, I couldn't care less.
