download-poster-newWhat an event as the spirit of Monsters Of Rock lived on at Download’s Classic Rock Sunday – and rushonrock was there to see it all (or some of it)!

This week we deliver the definitive view of a mesmerising day with reviews of Leppard, Whitesnake, Journey, Dream Theater, Black Stone Cherry, Stone Gods, Tesla, Shinedown and the fabulous Steel Panther! There’s all the backstage gossip, some cheeky pics and a list of our highs and lows. Enjoy.

But that’s not all this week. Tesla play Newcastle’s o2 Academy tonight with rising rockers People In Planes at Whitley Bay’s Trojan Rooms. And Self Made Man delivers his verdict on UFO at the o2.

But that’s not all folks. We feature Steadlur bass player Daniel in our latest edition of the rushonrock Rider and The Vinyl Countdown features the forgotten men of melodic rock, Dare. Later in the week we review the new records by Magnum, Dream Theatre and Baltimoore and there’s the usual blog banter and breaking news.
