ROYAL REPUBLIC – Glasgow Garage (Live Review)

The band D.A.D once sang that the best damned parties are thrown at “The Rim Of Hell”. After Sunday night I think there is a very good chance that Royal Republic are the house band!

All hell-bent for leather on seeing Saxon on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at the festival, that plan dissipated surprisingly easy. It was suggested to me that “you’ve seen Saxon many times”.
