Ha, got that same comment on my blog Neil for my recent Hold Steayd post. Hope you enjoyed them at Oxegen. Why the hell were they on so early?

The web sheriff does like to let bloggers know that he's watching the blogs.

Unfortunately, didn't make it to Oxegen today, saw the setlist on your site and it looks like a great show. Be interested to hear your reports of a few other shows today.
