Or Even Blaze Bayley(!)

I quite enjoy this version of Queensryche but losing a SG and bumping another up isn't very good
Sure it`s two days before but a better contingency plan next time?

I was thinking the same thing. Do people really expect Bloodstock to have bands of every sub-genre on stand by in case someone cancels :lol:

Code Orange cancel and we get a better replacement.
Dimmu Borgir cancel and we get a worse replacement.

Yeah I`m sure Evile or Evil Scarecrow leave their phones near just for those lower bill cancellations

If you have the chance of a SG slot at Bloodstock in front of a packed crowd of Metalheads which could massively raise your band profile in this Country or to stay at home wanking, what would you do?

Wait ......dont answer that !

It would have been better to not book a replacement than book Faketushka. By booking them Bloodstock are aiding and abetting essentially the theft of intellectual property.

Not to BOA to decide the IP rights based on a few news stories so not aiding and abetting anything - they wanted a band, band was available. Its happened many times before (Kyuss, Saxon, Queensryche..) and will happen again. If you've picked your side, don't watch..
She wanted nothing...and I delivered
