It suprised me too, the first time I saw that DVD.
But then I realised; no human being is either 100% serious or funny or whatever. Everybody has different sides. So, while Grady is obviously very serious about music and his lyrics are about serious issues he dealt or deals with, doesn't mean the man can't have sense of humour.

I know i know, its just when i met gardy he seemed the guy that doesnt joke like that, diffrent sence of humor.

whats up with that porn footages there, anyone knows?

Porn probably tongue-in-cheeck kinda fun.

Finally, I'm uploading the b-sides of the 'Carpe Diem' single.

Cheers Tuck! Ah yes, the Radio 1 Rock Show, back in the day that it was good, when Mary Anne Hobbs presented it! The new guy who's on there, Mike Davies, gets on my nerves a little bit. He's negative to anything that isnt fast, heavy and aggressive! Whereas Mary was more open minded! And she was good at interviewing guests too!

An utterly shameful review of the Will Haven/Crowbar show at the Mean Fiddler in this months issue of Metal Hammer. Pisses me off so bad, it's obvious the dude doesnt have a clue what he's talking about or doesnt even like the band to start with. He praises Crowbar to fuck, but says the sound in the Mean Fiddler has gotten worse and worse over the years or some shit so that's what ruined the show. Anyway here's what he says about Will Haven

"...As for Will Haven, well the sound clears up the minute they take to the stage, but the atmosphere nose-dives faster than Tony Blair's approval ratings the minute the bands jarring staccato noise makes itself known. Quite frankly Will Haven are cluelessly, incredibly awful - a cacophonous din compared with Crowbar's hugely enjoyable dirge.
"My dad's come all the way from America to see his first Will Haven gig," boasted Grady Avenell. Bet he wishes he'd stayed at home.


Oh yeah, and the rating was 5/10

That review is harsh! I don't understand, I though Metal Hammer backed them up as well. There's another review from Kerrang out there (on the Crowbar website, that's not too fond of them as well).
Anyway, you're right Chrisbo, I disagree. The gig was awesome and sound was perfect. That said, I did like the gig in Portsmouth the next day a little better; they're were even better then, or at least, they seemed to be for me. But me liking that gig more also has to do with me knowing which song they'd played, me beeing up front, me being able to headbang my way through each song and me making a friend there.

Too true. I don't even buy that shit no more. I know Rock Sound are really big fans though and praised Carpe Diem to fuck when it was released. They were the main feature in the mag and a lot of the article was basically asking why Will Haven hadn't had much success when they were such an amazing band.

just in case it needs to be said, Will Haven are one of the best bands ever and that reviewer is an arse.

yeah review sucked and metal hammer is just like Kerang, its all about big bands or money making bands.

Also i thought reviews are ment to be more rationall, descriptive, informative, sharing your opinion and experince with readers, you cant just say this is not what i expected and they suck. Very preposterous review!

You pinned the tail on the donkey right there! Add HIM to that list (and they're really fucking metal arent they?) and it's even more perfect! I still buy it because it's nice and meaty and the articles are interesting, but the reviews tend to be absolute bullshit (they gave Red Sparowes a 6/10 live too).

But ah well, what can you do eh?
