The finer points of Motorhead‘s latest November visit to the UK have been released.
Well, it’s that time of year again when we here at the Live4ever Ezine begin to trail back through 12 months worth of musical delights in a vain attempt to group our favourites of 2011 into some sort of coherent list we like to call Live4ever’s Essential Listening.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be presenting our most cherished gigs, tracks and albums of the year, in the hope that our highlights from 52 weeks worth of sonic adventure will inspire you to investigate our essential picks of 2011, as well as sharing your own favourites with us.
Check back next week for Live4ever’s Essential Listening 2011 – The Tracks, and when you’ve been through our stand-out gigs of the year, don’t forget to leave a comment below to tell the world of your memorable gig-going experiences of 2011.
