Boy, I sure am glad that I didn't go to this...

ROCKLAHOMA 2008 !!!
Spectators Curtis Broadbent, left, and Stephanie Broadbent, 22, dance in mud during the second day of the second annual Rocklahoma music festival in Pryor, Okla., Thursday, July 10, 2008.


After seeing this picture of the goings on at "Rocklahoma" (also known as Mullet-stock) I cant think of any place that I would rather be less. For those of you who don't know this is a Hair band festival in the middle of nowheres-ville Oklahoma each summer. This year's lineup includes: Axe
Steelheart Zebra UFO Ace Frehley Tesla Queensr├┐che Pretty Boy Floyd Every Mother's Nightmare Tora Tora Black 'n Blue Trixter Lynch Mob Kix Lita Ford Warrant XYZ Armored Saint Kingdom Come Living Colour Night Ranger Extreme Triumph Jetboy House of Lords Vain
Enuff Z'nuff L.A. Guns w/ Tracii Guns Dokken Sebastian Bach (of Skid Row) Bret Michaels Firehouse All Star Fantasy Camp Jackyl and Ratt (Heck the only band I would even remotely be interested in out of that is Firehouse)

Anyone else glad after seeing the lineup, the apparent weather conditions, the mud, and the caliber of the attendees of this event glad that you stayed home this weekend ?

(Well at least the mud was good for something... It mostly covered up the rebel flag bikini that chick was wearing...Yeesh)

There are several of those bands that I would love to see, but those big musical festivals freak me out.

I went to Woodstock in 1999 and I think I still have post traumatic stress syndrome.

Wow, it's Hasbeenapalooza...

NIGHT RANGER? That is appalling...

I didn't know these acts were still in the music business...I would've thought Dokken, LA Guns, et al would've returned to their music store salesman gigs...

Some of those bands, while past their prime, would be cool to see. And watching half-naked women run around summer rock festivals can be a lot of fun. But, I'm too old to run around in the mud with a bunch of drunk rednecks anymore.

Kinda wish it had been on TV though. haha

I like seeing acts from the 80s, but the ones in that list are all hair bands and I was NEVER into that, just the pop and punk. So, no, don't think I'd have bought a ticket to this gig.

Then again, I don't go to concerts very often, the last one was Bon Jovi and before that, Elton John.

Not one, in 37 have I ever heard of.

Troglodyte that I am, I would enjoy the mud!

Give me the bands, keep the mud.
