Stone Free Festival (Sunday 19th June, 2016)

Due to Amy suffering a leg injury courtesy of some f*ckstain kicking her in the knee trying to get to the front for Alice Cooper the previous evening (don't worry, several audience members and her husband ensured he ended up significantly further back in the venue than he'd have wished), Max was our lone staff … Continue reading Stone Free Festival (Sunday 19th June, 2016)
