As a fickle music journalist, I reserve the right to flip-flop on my views and opinions. Let's face it, things change, people grow, and I've probably already contradicted myself several times in this publication anyway, so what's the harm in doing it again? The last time Diamond Head came through town, I referred to them as a "pick-up band that are turning a triumphant legacy into dollar signs." A harsh statement that was probably true then, and may be now. But really, who gives a shit? In the end, it's all about the music. And in Diamond Head's case, it's music any right-minded hesher has been worshiping since learning how to drop a needle in a groove (or type a band's name into a YouTube search). So let me lead by example: Put aside your hang-ups and let's go hear a band that can no doubt play "Am I Evil?" better than Metallica. ARIS WALES
