About 10 mins ago Rob and I returned
from Tennessee after going to see a Heavy Metal band named FOZZY.
Now don't get me wrong I am not a Heavy Metal
fan at all, but my dear friend Michael Martin has just joined this band
and wanted me to see the show. Well I
dont think I have had so much fun at a concert. I did have to wear
my ear plugs for sure
but this band were
outstanding. !!!! Read all about them here http://www.fozzyrock.com
Their stage show is just something else, so alive
with action and power music. I decided
to stand at the front of the stage and take photos of this very photogenic
band, and I am so
pleased I did.
IF you ever hear the band are playing near you,

very entertaining band. They sure make you smile.
Good Luck guys on your European tour.
