Are you on the right website?
Let's take out the best bands and compare them?
We have The Who, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Placebo, Wolfmother, Queens Of The Stone Age, Wu Tang Clan and Biffy Clyro..

vs

heaven & hell + Steve Vai + various others.

I'd choose those 2 indie fests over that i think.
Seeing H&H this year anyway.

The only band I'd take out of the former bunch is the Who, but I'd definitely see them over H&H.

Of all those gigs I'm expecting Vai to be the worst! By some way.

Are you actually familiar with the "various others"? You put them against the worst (and most artificial) "stoner" band there's ever been, the One Song Chili Peppers and a hip hop band? And the teenage radio crap comes out ahead?

Do we have any metal fans here? Anyone?

I wouldn't see anyone over H&H.

I'm probably on the wrong website. But then, in a sense, we're probably all on the wrong website.

But no, for me the world doesn't begin and end with metal, so I'd take excellent new bands like The Arcade Fire and Arctic Monkeys, not to mention a hip hop legend like Wu Tang Clan, anyday over warmed-over metal acts who are 20+ years past their heyday and were never really any good to begin with (i.e., Heaven and Hell + Candlemass).

Aren't you a little old to be a hipster?

I have yet to hear Liquid Swords, so I'll hold judgement on Wu-tang.

Seriously? I guess I over-did it a little, but honestly: I wouldnt let the Arcade Fire or Arctic Monkeys into the same room as Dio and Iommi.
