The time is nigh to sort out your clashes. The set times were released last week and with the festival this weekend, time to get those pens out and circle the lucky musicians who’ll be seeing your faces over the four days. Head to: http://splendourinthegrass.com/ to see the times.
Eight songs into Frenzal Rhomb’s set and they were all feeling the buzz, wanting to school the fans on how to crowdsurf, drummer Gordy Forman stepped forward and launched himself in. It was only when the crowd pushed him back to the stage (upside down) that his arm caught on a barrier and was broken. Here at Forte we’ve had a bit to do with the band, and all we can say is Gordy, you bad ass, we hope your arm is on the mend and that you’ll be drumming again in no time!
There’s no stopping in the world of rock ‘n’ roll, regardless of what appendage you may lose. For those who haven’t heard, a few weeks ago Dave Grohl fell off stage in Sweden and broke his leg and in a totally bad ass manner, kept playing the set. Returning to the stage this time with a purple cast on his leg, Grohl played in Washington while sitting on a pretty awesome throne made of guitar necks. Check it out if you don’t believe us.
Love them or hate them, the Libertines are a stallmark in the British rock scene, creating guitar anthems and a carefree attitude with everything they do. It’s been 11 years since the band’s last album, but a new one is on the way, and we’re sure the wait will be more than worth it.
