Girlschool @ Le Trianon, Paris - November 14th, 2016

This concert was supposed to be headlined by Motörhead. It was postponed after the Bataclan attacks, and then postponed again after Lemmy fell ill. Unfortunately Lemmy didn't make it, on account of being Stone Dead Forever. But his friends Saxon and Girlschool are honouring the commitment, and they brought Last In Line along with them.
Girlschool are a great bunch. They look like they are having a blast. The problem is they're just not that good. Even their best songs (Hit and Run, and a cover of Gun's Race with the Devil) are pretty mediocre, their playing is very pedestrian and their stage presence is close to zero. But they were Lemmy's friends and have a reputation for being the female Motörhead, so the audience was rather kind to them.

Their set wasn't unpleasant at all but they do not belong on the same stage as these professional, international acts.
