I still can't believe it! One of my dreams came true: yesterday i saw Buzzcocks
They were playing at "Rock in Idro" festival in Milano, together with The Damned
, Iggy Pop
& The Stooges
, The Toasters
, The Bouncing Souls
, Gogol Bordello
, Eagles of Death Metal
, and other bands that i don't like.Buzzcocks
played (only) for 40 minutes (more or less) on main stage, but at a stupid time (4:30 pm). Only few people were there to see them, maybe 1000 or less. And nobody knews all their songs. This seems ridicolous to me, but it's usual with stupid italians.
I was in first line, so i could enjoy everything. I'm trying to remember which song they played (random):Flat-Pack PhilosophySell You EverythingOrgasm AddictWhat Do I Get?Love You MorePromisesHarmony in My HeadNoise AnnoysFast CarsI Don't MindEver Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)?
(or just Ever Fallen in Love?
)I Don't Know What To Do With My Life
They didn't played Lipstick
, which is maybe my favourite song for some reason.
They played without breaks, Pete was great, Steve was amazing, a real rocker! And I think now it's hard to find musicians playing their music having fun on stage, being so enthusiastic after 30 years of shows, but Buzzcocks
did it. They're just great. A lot of people should learn from them.
At the end of the show i met Danny, the drummer, watching Gogol Bordello
's show, I talk a little bit with him, he was so nice!! And I asked him a picture. Oh! I'm so happy!!! I fell like i'm Sixteen Again
