We have just reutrned from our trip to Albuquerque New Mexico to see Ozzfest.

IT WAS PHANOMINAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The second stage bands were great, the crowd seemed to really like Lacuna Coil.The lead singer can sing and she is really hot,! this being the opinion of a very normal 14 year old boy..... Any way The main stage bands were as you would expect F'n awsome!!!!! Halford rocked the entire statium, it was as though Priest had never taken the time away form Halfrod, his vocals and his incredible stage presence. He had the croud so pumped up that when Ozzy and Sabbath finally took the stage the Oz man had an easy time of keeping the energy level HIGH

Sabbath and Oz... awah what can I say that hasn't already been said? There is no question they are simply the greatst heavy metal band of all time. It is amazing that they havent done this sort of thing more times then just the two times they have .... Iommy was his usual lay back self, his style has never and will never be copied. He didn't miss a beat/ riff. The man truly is a GOD, a legand, no one can top him! The crowd went simply nuts at the end of the set whin Iommi and Butler through hand fulls of guitar picks into the crowd. SOOOOO COOL.

Geezer was ... his usual energetic, electric, KICK ASS playin self, he is such a wonder.... Ward won over the crowd with some coaxing form O'l OZ during the band introductions. And last but for sure not least OZZY, the man is like a F'n cat, he has nine lives. His vocals were strong, his energy was 100%, with out a doubt the man is unstopable. so, yeah. Sabbath RULES always will.

I suppose the only "glitch" was with the backing tape that was used during "War Pigs" the guys were playing a little faster then Oz could sing and we/ crowd could hear a bit of an echo but that was soon fixed and really I don't thinkthat too many people even noticed that it was a glitch it sounded like maybe it was part of the song...

The New Mexico heat was as usual unbareable, but even that couldnt and didn't have any effect on the sice or energy of the crowd. God willing and we can ALL do it again in 2005. Rock-N-Roll FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pictures are on the way ..... Be Well thanX for the great web site. Bernadette
