Blimey, it’s December already! Another year is nearly over, but it’s not a wrap quite yet…
Happy Birthday to:

- Dani Winter-Bates, Bury Tomorrow 3rd December 1986
- Ozzy Osbourne, 3rd December 1948
- Corey Taylor, Slipknot 8th December 1973
- Brian Molko, Placebo 10th December 1972
- Nikki Sixx, Mötley Crüe 11th December 1958
- Amy Lee, Evanescence 13th December 1981

- Lemmy, Motörhead 24th December 1945
- Tuomas Holopainen 25th December 1976
- Lars Ulrich, Metallica 26th December 1963
- Bury Tomorrow – I mentioned these chaps quite recently, how had I not heard of them before? Better late than never, though, eh? And their screamo guy, Daniel Winter-Bates, what an impressive pair of lungs! My favourite track by them right now is An Honourable Reign, and they also do a kick ass cover of Evanescence‘s Bring Me To Life. They’re a credit to British metalcore!
- Korpiklaani – I came across this awesome Finnish folk metal band recently and pretty much became an instant fan after hearing their new single Ämmänhauta, from their new album Noita. Their tunes are a robust, thigh slapping blend of harmonic melodies and metal, and for some reason they make you really want to consume large quantities of beer.
Gigs I’m going to this month:
- Nightwish at Wembley Arena on 19th December
- HIM at Nottingham Rock City on 27th December
Have a great December!
