Well worth the wait and credit must be given to local promoter SD Entertainment for securing an artist of his caliber to make his debut appearance, in N.ireland. Several minor gripes aside from punters regarding the length of the set but to me personally it represented a finely tuned and well delivered combination of quality music and personal anecdotes-exactly what was promised. Joe himself lived up to all his star quality but with a genuine caring and personal side. The seed has now been planted for his return with an electric band to fill in the gaps in his back catalogue with more rock anthems to play live. The demand and interest is certainly there with the N.Ireland rock audience. Over to you promoter….
ow Pretty Maids aren’t at the level of success of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, or Poison completely baffles me. Barring the band’s name itself (the general consensus when I tell my friends about them is that the band’s name is terrible,) you will find no group that has more consistently released incredible music from their first album to their most recent.
Division is a song about how the media influences public opinion, and how many people form half-assed beliefs which they carry through to their children and friends without really thinking about it, or why. It’s also written in a kind of Orwellian speech style, I pictured some overweight featureless man in a grey overall shouting through a megaphone in a shopping mall.
