Editor's Viewpoint: Re-born to rock

The sound of music filling the Belfast air from rock band the Foo Fighters may have been a trifle loud to some ears, but surely it was an anthem to a city re-born, a city where the pop and rock stars are regular visitors and where young people have learned how to enjoy themselves again.

It wasn't that long ago that more sinister sounds of violence filled the air nightly in this city.

While music festival organisers must take some heed of potential annoyance to local residents, the stirring sound of a rasping rock guitar is surely preferable to what went before.
