Real Name - Grégory Svitouxhkoff

Nationality - French

Home Town - Paris, but now Vannes (Britany)

When/how did you first hear ABB - In 1996, after reading a great book on Harleys and its cultural environment. ABB was named in that book so I decided I should buy a record, so I bought "Eat a Peach", and I as you can see I wasn't disapointed. Also love Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bruce Springsteen...

Never seen them on stage.

See ya...

Hi Jim

I don't usually look at this forum, but I'm still around and waiting feverishly for THE ANNOUNCEMENT. I hope to see all the friends I've made at past shows and to make many others in March in NYC

Howdy.

I'm a newbie here. Names Keith and I hail from Dublin.

Have yet to see the ABB live but may head to NY this year as the run coincides with my wedding anniversary. Just have to get around the wife first.

Hopefully the promise of a trip to NY might negate any negative vibes about dragging her to a gig when we get there.

Welcome aboard Keith

I have to give NYC a miss this year unfortunately ... but I plan to be back over there in 2009 for the 40th anniversary

This year is a good year for you to take the wife to NYC with the gigs being in May for a change ... NYC is much nicer in the spring than it is in March ... all the best.

Thanks for the welcome.

NYC is lovely in May. Me & the wife went there on our honeymoon and that was in May.

Still working on getting her to agree to the trip. May have to persuade the sis in law to come so she can keep her company whilst I head to any gigs I might acquire tickets for.

Hello
I joined today
My name is ian
I'm from Wolverhampton in England
The first song i heard was JESSICA which is used on the TV show Top Gear,i've heard a lot of the better know songs by the band but have only really got into the band over the last 5/6 years.
I don't think the UK has given the band the airplay that they have deserved over the years and that's probably why it took so long to get into the band.
Unfortunately i've never seen the band,the best chance i had was in 2004 when i was in NY on my 20th wedding anniversary but i couldn't get my wife to go to a show.
However i've seen Gov't Mule 5 times out of the 6 they've played in the UK.
Favorite song at the moment is an oldie " BLUE SKY "

Welcome Ian ... most of the brits that have posted to this thread are still current members, and a lot of us meet up for a few pre-show beers when Mule / dTb etc come over here ... usually at the London gigs however.

Thanks for the link, but unfortunately on this occasion, as my gig is on a Thursday night and I have to work Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, I will be driving into London after work and home again straight afterwards so won't have any time to join in the festivities.

By the way, do you have a copy of the Mule show from last year? If not, send me a PM with your home address and I'll send you a copy.

Cheers,
Colin.

Jim bumped this for me after receiving an email asking "who are all these people?".

Does anyone else agree that we should put pictures of ourselves up? Keep them clean Jim.

Real Name : Michael Curran

from : Ireland

Was just over in NY at the first of the Beacon shows. That was the first time I saw ABB, saw Warren with the Mule in London a couple of years ago, and will be over to see Derek play the Empire in April.
The first of the Beacon run was immense, the guests changing the mood significantly, Taj Mahal burning up the Beacon, and then Levon Helm, Larry Campbell et al giving it plenty in the second half of the show. Was very impressed by Butch, still going strong and the interplay between Warren and Derek seems to be moving to a new level. I saw Gregg leave the Beacon afterwards and he looked amazing, really lean and fit.
Derek came out with susan and signed quite a few autographs with grace and no little patience, as did Warren.
All in all an amazing start to the season...I am already saving up for next year.
The europeans were well represented at the Beacon too with Irish, spanish and UK brethren present. See y'all in Shepherds Bush 26th april I hope

irishmike.....

When gigs are at the Shepherds Bush Empire, we normally meet up in O'Neill's Bar on the corner next to the venue ... so pop your head in there and spot the appropriate T shirts (Allmans / dTb / Mule) and it will probably be some of us

Hello, I'm a fresh Euro Peach Nice to see a few more Dutchmen in this topic!

Real Name - Peter Boer
Nationality - Dutch
Home Town - Gouda
When/how did you first hear ABB - around 1990, when I heard Live at the Fillmore East from the older brother of a friend of mine. At that time, I was just learning to play bass and remember to be struck by the powerfull bass of Hot'Lanta. At that time it seemed to be impossible to play bass like that, but now it's one of my favorite songs to play.
Seen ABB? - No, just looking to go to the Beacon

Since then I've played in numerous bands, but at home I play a lot ABB on bass. And last weekend I finished my tribute to my hero Berry Oakley: I've build a Tractor!



Next step: trying to start a Dutch ABB tribute band !
