Slane, May 16, 1992

Frenzied ‘revellers’ get ‘down’ as Guns ‘n’ Roses play Slane.on their Use Your Illusion tour.

Few would scarcely believe it might take 25 years before they would return.

All they needed was a little patience.

Patience.

Never mind.

For your consideration.

Julien Temple‘s excellent  2015 BBC4 documentary ‘The Best Thing Since Cavan’ on The Strypes and their ongoing mission to bring R&B and rock ‘n’ roll to a new generation.

Includes eye-popping Cavan archive footage, Keith Allen, Monaghan’s much-missed Flatlake Festival and Elton John.
