Closing the Ramblin’ Man Fair for 2018 were the Cult, who ironically turned out to be the surprise of the day for many.
I vacated the site with friends old and new and fond memories, some recent, some from the distant past but all conjured up by an emotive combination of music and good company
A rescheduled show due to guitar player Jeremy Brown’s passing, meant that fans who had been expecting to see the band live back in April were chomping at the bit by the time Scott Weiland & Co. returned to the UK. The passing of a band mate is never easy and oftens results in the band splintering before finally dissolving. Not so Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts. Whilst Weiland has always got other ‘projects’ on the go, this band / incarnation does seem to have some staying power and a sold out Garage in London’s Highbury and Islington district suggests the fans are still eager to see what the man can deliver.
