I didn't think we went too crazy! It was a kind of sensible mosh pit, which is just as well at our age! lol.

I know I was only joking, It was a very grown up MOSH mind you my mosh related ankle injury may prevent too much leaping Saturday though

I had a great view of the crowd ,as was stood on the stairs. It all looked very impressive.If your mini-mosh pit was prety much in the centre,towards the front then i saw it. Looked like everyone was having a ball. Thats the thing with a Saxon gig : Its great to see so many people REALLY enjoying themselves (instead of some gigs where theres the "arms folded,impress me element")

Even though it was a fantastic gig,there was one moment which was pretty "awkward" : When Doug first attempted his guitar solo & after a little fret w*nk**g,or display of his expertise if you wish,it finished with silence from the crowd. His look was incredulous. But good ol Biff, he let him have another go after the next song (Bands played on i think?) & he got the reaction he wanted ;-)

i think there was a prob with his guitar or lead .... doug always gets a good reception for his guitar work especially as we know it leads into wheels of steel
as for the mosh pit ........ QUALITY.........
and yes sammi it was a well behaved mosh pit .... well it was untill "state of grace" then it went mad untill "ashes to ashes"
