“Great young rockers with that 80's/90's hair metal sound. Good looking bunch of lads with a pretty boy singer blessed with a fantastic voice. Ballad 'A Work of Art (Drew Me In) and bouncy closer 'Dead Flowers' we're highlights of a very strong set of songs" ”
"Bone Idle have a singer who has a fantastic rock voice, with their drummer doing 'Bonham' proud being so loud that the soundman had to turn all the microphones that we're on the kit OFF! It was still bleeding through the guitar amps but amazingly the kit survived!! Rock Gods in the making!"
"Young and gung, Bone Idle are in the zone faster than you can blink. Ripping through 'Roll The Dice' and 'Robin' The Hood' with an energy reminiscent of early Skid Row, not harmed by the fact their excellent singer looks and moves like a young Sebastian Bach. 'A Work of Art (Drew Me In)' is given the haunting delivery it so richly deserves and then things were rocked back up with 'Unbreakable'. Closer 'Dead Flowers' lit up the already energized crowd and throughout this set you could have ran jump leads off these guys. Absolute killer performance!"
"For a bunch of young lads who's very first gig was in the opening round of this competition (Three Tuns 'Guiness Battle of The Bands), Bone Idle are already carving out a name for them self and have quickly built a very large and dedicated following. Far too pretty to be seen in the same room as an ugly fat bloke like me, they sound as good as they look and rocked out on new tune 'The Ugly Life' which took a harder direction than most of their existing material. 'Work Of Art' was subtle and heartfelt but as ever it's the wonderful 'Dead Flowers' that received the biggest reception!"
"Excellent band, great vocals, thunderous drums and technique, new guitarists bring monster riffs and virtuoso playing, this band can only go massive and have to be seen and heard!"
“Kicking off the night with a bang, Bone Idle were the perfect aperitif to the night’s glam and sleazefest supporting Californian sleaze rockers Dirty Penny and UK rockers Falling Red. With a mix of 80s and 90s hair metal – and a somewhat melodic take on the Seattle sound – the Newcastle-based band impressed with a strong set of some truly great material. The rocky but emotive Dead Flowers was a prime example. ”
