There are two main passions in my life, animals and music.
Let me clarify, there are so many amazing rock bands out there that I love, but these are my top four. The fact is, I could talk about my favourite bands until the cows come home, I live and breathe this stuff, and it seriously gets me pumped just thinking about it!
I’ve been a fan of all of these guys for ten years plus, so you can probably understand my attachment!
I think Hoobastank is one of the most underrated bands of all time, I really do! There is not one song or album by these guys that I don’t love without an absolute passion, to me, they just can’t go wrong. I was lucky enough to meet them, too, as well as see them live, and let me tell you, not only are they incredibly talented guys, they are some of the nicest men I have ever met, too.
These guys are the first ever rock band that I got into. They reeled me in with In The Shadows, black eyeliner, and gothic videos, and I’m eternally in their debt for setting my feet on The Path Of Rock for life! Just think, I could have gone some other way *shudders*.
I also saw The Rasmus in Camden a couple of years ago, and my most vivid memory is of flashing lights, a crazy, pumped atmosphere, and the guys playing Mysteria like there was no tomorrow. What a freaking night!
Seeing Placebo play live was honestly one of the most amazing nights of my life! They say a lot of things about Placebo, apparently, they are like Marmite, and you either love them or hate them. They also say, that you never get “casual” Placebo fans, because Placebo fans are the hardcore and forever faithful and loyal.
I personally think Brian Molko’s voice is heavenly, and Placebo is my favourite jogging music!
Linkin Park is one of my “first love” bands, and to be honest, I have a totally unhealthy obsession with Chester Bennington. But it makes me happy, so, who cares?
I saw them live last year at the 02 Arena, and it was a breathtaking experience, they are just so amazing live. I am so proud of them for how far they have come, and what they have been through to get to where they are. They built Linkin Park out of pure talent, sweat and tears, and just look at them now! I can’t wait to see them live again!
So now you know…
