Simple Plan Lose Member At Download Festival

Simple Plan’s guitarist Jeff Stinco was notably absent from Simple Plan’s Download set on Friday (June 13th). He grabbed a last minute flight back to Canada for ‘personal reasons’.

Front man, Pierre Bouvier seemed confused, telling the crowd, “It’s great to be in Birmingham”, when they were actually in Donninton. Simple Plan played a shortened set including ‘Your Love is a Lie’, ‘You’re Gone’, ‘Welcome to My Life’, ‘Generation’ and ‘I’d Do Anything’ before… Read more »


Phoenix Festival, 1996: The Tour That Defined Me

— As UK music festivals go, the Phoenix Festival doesn’t have the storied history of Glastonbury or Reading. It only ran for five years, between 1993 and ’97, but it was located pretty close to my home in the Midlands region of England when I was growing up, and so I went to the 1995 event and the two that followed.  The 1996 Phoenix Festival is the festival that I judge all festivals on. So high was the bar it set, I’ve yet to see it be bettered (and I’ve attended Glastonburys, Readings, Coachellas, Riot Fests, Rocklahomas, Download/Doningtons, and more… Read more »
