ROCKLAHOMA 2008 RUMORS BEGIN TO STIR
Rocklahoma, the 3-day ’80s hair-revivalist festival in Pryor, Oklahoma, was one of the most successful U.S. festivals last summer and this year’s second edition promises to be no different. Numerous message boards and fan sites have been a-swirl with rumors and zealous fans trying to piece together the lineup based on already announced itineraries from likely bands. Now I know it’s pretty exciting for ’80s rock enthusiasts and all, but honestly, will any lineup really be THAT much of a surprise? I’ll give you a hint, it will consist of some combination of the following:
Autograph, Black N’ Blue, Bullet Boys, Cinderella, Dokken, Def Leppard, Enuff Znuff, Extreme, Europe, Firehouse, Lita Ford, Faster Pussycat (chose your favorite version), Great White, Journey, Jackyl, Kix, LA Guns (chose your favorite version) Motley Crue, Molly Hatchet, Night Ranger, Poison, Ratt, Skid Row, Scorpions, Slaughter, Stryper, Tesla, Twisted Sister, Vixen, White Lion, Whitesnake, Warrant, Winger, Y&T and <insert hair band name here>
Presumably everyone’s favorite sad-sack Steven Adler will appear in whatever band he can get a gig with these days (or he’ll resurrect Adler’s Appetite).
And, uh, oh yeah, Krokus is already confirmed.
