Man accused of being an “Angry Midget” reveals his percussive genius
Headbangerwoman was lucky enough to recently attend a Godsmack show at Pearl Theater, in the Palms resort Las Vegas, USA.
Entry to the venue was smooth, merchandise purchase was easy and the drink line up was short. Suspicion at this point is on the increase.
The venue staff were friendly, seats were good, comfy, roomy, clean and there was even a drink holder in the right place!
Godsmack were late. No guest/support band on the roster and the singer was not in the mood for discussion on his arrival due to an “over indulgence of Tequila” pre-show.
Musically the band was tighter than a nuns rectum and the show was good. All the right songs were played and even after Tequila ingestion, Sully Erna; singer and his band never dropped a note.
The piece de resistance however came as Erna mounted a second drum kit for the drum solo, which obviously became a duel and beat it like it owed him money. Pure class. No fancy gimmicks, just pure percussive talent. It was a raw performance and Erna was and ripping it up.
Fantastic musicianship ensued at the hands of Shannon Larkin; drums and Erna, who was originally behind a kit before Godsmack made it big.
A good night out was had by all in a class resort and a beautiful part of the world. Entertaining and worth $60 of anyones hard earned cash, even if there was a pregnant pause.
Godsmack will headline the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival in 2012.
Get a ticket!
