SLIPKNOT’S PAUL GRAY AND KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES’ ALED PHILIPS PAY TRIBUTE TO THE ASTORIA

Posted on January 27, 2009

As you may know, London’s legendary venue The Astoria has closed pending demolition to make way for the new cross-rail development. It will be mourned by many. This web ed is one of those folks who has had many a killer night watching amazing bands in that venue: Slipknot, Airbourne, Chimaira, Kids In Glass Houses, Machine Head, DragonForce, Killswitch Engage, DevilDriver, Gojira, Nine Inch Nails, HIM, My Chemical Romance… not to mention the miles run up and down the stairs (oh the many many stairs!) backstage ushering journalists, DJ’s and band members around. And the staggering up and down them…oh the staggering…post show. It’s a venue that was infamous for an amazing vibe and fun times. A venue that many a punter enjoyed going to and that many a band enjoyed, nay aspired to, playing.

ROCKSOUND spoke to some such artists for a feature on their website recently, and two of these were SLIPKNOT’S>/a> Paul Gray and KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES’ Aled Philips.

Check out what Paul had to say HERE. Aled adds his memories at THIS LOCATION.
