Just a few quick comments/questions on this year’s lineup:
1. All the bands on the Main Stage have been there before EXCEPT Lacuna Coil. Can’t they get some fresh bands? Ones that haven’t been there almost every year?
2. I understand that Zakk Wylde is Ozzy’s main guy but seeing Black Label Society every year gets old. Same goes for System Of A Down.
3. Aside from BLS and Strapping Young Lad…..who are the rest of these bands on the 2nd stage? Can anyone other than the “outcast goth teens” or “hardcore teens” honestly name a song, an album, or a band member from any of these bands?
4. Ozzy is only headlining 10 dates. Ozzfest=Ozzy. No Ozzy kind of destroys the point.
5. The best thing that happened to Ozzfest was the introduction of a co-headliner. We had Judas Priest, then Iron Maiden, now there is a “mystery band”. Unless this band is Metallica, any date without Ozzy is a waste of time.
