Download UK






Throwdown at the UK Download festival... Good times. We had a blast. I flew over, courtesty of Virgin Airways, with TD and Bleeding Through who were both playing the "Snicker's Stage" at one of the UK's biggest festivals. Some bands called Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Korn and Tool were the headliners. Yeah, I have never heard of them, either.

The other picture is my old friend Bjorn, of In Flames, who still gives praise to Burn It Down whenever I see him, and Dave!

I have plenty more pics from Download... I'll post more soon.
