Exclamation Saxon at Rockweekend, Sweden 10th of July 2010

I saw Saxon in Stockholm 1983 (their first visit to Sweden?) and they were absolutely amazing. Last night I had the pleasure of seeing them again at Rockweekend Festival. Saxon were, of course, as good as ever. There were many great bands at the festival, but Saxon kicked everybody's ass; especially Deep Purple's. That once so wonderful band gave us an "ordinary-day-at-work" show. Ian Gillan should check out the lyrics to Denim & Leather. Then maybe he'll understand the reason why he's been able to travel around the world playing music for the past 40 years or so! Anyway, Biff and the guys were so good that I still, almost 24 h later, feel like I'm intoxicated (I was absolutely sober at the show). The only question mark was: Where was the fuckin' Eagle?
