Hello, my dear S&B!
Dear bro Danis, hope a lot of Mythos, because we are great! Ha-ha!
That will be "at a same place and same time". I'll be in the same place as last year. Why? My family decided = nice place, nice sea, nice pool, nice food... This year that will be from 11 to 26 of July. I hope this year we'll meet bro Roger together.
Yes! Bro Roger, what you think about the result of the game, in the first place about the 2nd England's goal? Now, I am sure that the final will be England vs. Serbia. And the winner (you or me ) will buy a couple of Mythos in Greece!!! Ha-ha!
Love!
Zeka

Colin, you're online, HELLO! And Danis, great to see you around! No apologies needed, we all have our lives to live outside this wonderful forum.

And a big HELLO to everyone else! Not exactly Stormy Monday here but rainy anyway...

Hope your weekend was a good and a relaxing one. I had a busy weekend, my son Pyry turned 6 years old on Saturday and we had a little family get-together... A splendid time was guaranteed for all. Now I am recuperating from the excess of too much cake and coke (soft drink )

Happy Monday!

Hello Everyone,

Danis & Zeka, no Chalkidiki, Greece for me this summer. We have been there 4 times
so we decided to go somewhere else but who knows maybe someday the "Mythos"
will call us back... .

This summer we are going for a 10 day holiday in Spain. Malgrat de Mar. Very touristic and crowded i guess but we want to visit Barcelona from there a few times. Only a short trainride. Never been to Spain before!!!

So first 4 weekends of rock / blues festivals and then of to Spain.
This saturday "Iron Maiden" and "Heaven and Hell" a.o. in Dessel, Belgium.
A week later a small blues festival just across the border with Belgium ("Hook Herrera" and
"The Cadillac Kings" a.o.
A week later Bospop Festival in my part of the Netherlands, featuring Paul Rodgers, John mayall, Gary Moore, John Fogerty, Joe Bonamassa, Marc Ford, Dan Baird, a.o.
And finally BRBF Blues in Peer Belgium with Gov't Mule, North Mississippi Allstars and John Haitt a.o.

So i guess i won't be online in the weekends as usual.

Cheers

Roger

Dear bro Roger, we'll drink a couple for you! Have a nice time in Spain!
What to say: Yesterday was a great game for us. You know that we (Serbia) won 2:0, but nothing with my final game. At the end, England was unhappy. Have you seen a same thing with a Holland's goal (it was a same thing as a second England's goal vs. Serbia)! God???
And now, the final game Holland vs. Serbia! We'll see!!!
I have here a new (and very good PC) and need a time to be friendly with my new stuff.
Have a nice day, my dear S&B!
Love!
Zeka

Good luck to both Roger (Holland) and Zeka (Serbia) ... may the best team win

England were unlucky perhaps ... but also tactically niaive ... they should not have taken off their two main strikers and replaced them with a defender and a midfield player with still 15 minutes of the game left ... it was suicide

Still ... the English boys put up a brave fight and the 13-12 penalty shoot out was certainly exciting. As it happens, if we had won I don't think we would have enough fit players left to field a proper team

Have a good day everyone

Just a quickie to say HELLO to all!

Colin!!!

My daughter Aura was sick today so I didn't take her to kindergarten but stayed home with her... had an extra free day

Tomorrow is Midsommer Eve and it's a public holiday so we're having here an extra long weekend. The nights are at this point really long, it gets only dusky in the wee small hours...

Take it easy and have a great Thursday and Friday before the actual weekend. See you!

Good evening to all!

It's the Midsummer fesitivies here in Finland and almost everyone have deserted the towns and cities for their lakeside cottages. And the sun is shining even though it's past 9 pm here... and there's a half moon in the sky simultaneously...

Have a nice weekend!

Hi, my dear S&B!
Yesterday was a great day for Red Hot CP fans. In the little town, near Belgrade, named Indjija (it is hard to read and to say) was about 100,000 of people. I can say that I was not there (that music is far, far away from my music taste). But, I saw at TV that concert was a great.
Here is very hot (temperature near 35 C) and we have to drink a lot of different kinds of liquids (only beer for me! ).
Be happy and well!
Love!
Zeka

Helloooo...

Colin, thanks for your kind words. I'll write you in a few days time...

Here I am, "relaxing" with my little rascals while Leena is still at work... I'm done... My kids know how to test their father's patience...

Hah hah, only kidding... The weather is beautiful and the kids... well, they're kids

See you around 'cause I'll be lurking. I am not going away...

Cheers!

Hi All! Hope everyone is doing very well.

Got to see Derek and the boys last Saturday. Loved the show, of course! Musical highlights for me were Sahib Teri Bandi, Blind, Crippled and Crazy, Leaving Trunk, My Favourite Things, Going Down Slow, For My Brother and Joyful Noise. Chatted with Kofi a couple of times, talked with Todd and met the Count for the first time. What a delightful and respectful person he is. Sandy got all the guys to sign the front of his blue dTb shirt in permanent black marker. Looks great, all the signatures surrounding the dTb insignia.

Oh yes, I must mention that Sandy and I got in line at 5:30 pm {we were #s 5 and 6 in line and doors opened at 7pm} so we got second row seats in between Kofi and Derek.

Oh yes, I'm enjoying Wimbledon too!

Petri, enjoy your holiday my dear...

Love...love... love........

Yep, i'm doing well. Very well actually. Today is the first day of my vacation.
Yeehahhhhhhhh!!!! I resume working on tuesday the 31st of july.
This coming week it's music, music and more music.
The weather overhere is aweful the last two weeks with huge amounts of rain and thunderstorms. Apparantly it's gonna be dry and sunny this sunday which is a good thing since i'm going to a great festival called Bospop (Netherlands) which is less than an hour's drive from my hometown.
A great line-up for seventies blues/hard rock lovers:

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers

Dan Baird & The Yahoos

Marc Ford

Thunder

Eric Sardinas

Joe Bonamassa

Gary Moore

Paul Rodgers & Band

John Fogerty

(a.o.).

Thursday next week it's Gov't Mule in Amsterdam (at the Paradiso)

and on sunday the 15nd it's the BRBF Blues Fest (see poster below).
Some great news on the festival website today: a change in schedule.
This is usually bad news but not in this case.
Headliner John Haitt switches with Gov't Mule and now the Mule will be closing
the festival (which mean they can play longer). And even better news:
After the 90 minutes scheduled set the Mule apparantly promised the BRBF organisers
that they afterwards will launch into a big jam session. With the North Mississippi Allstars and John Haitt on the bill this may turn out to be one hell of a party!!!

Not much rest the day after......i'll be of to spain to get some hot sun, tapas and
"grande cervezas multi fryo por favor!!!".

Happy happy Weekend Everybody !!!!!

Yep, that's me. Maybe you can do some photoshopping etc. and delete my image and
replace it by Roger Federer, George Clooney, Antonio Banderas are someone else of your liking!!

Cheers !

Very nice to see you Roger! I like your image just fine so forgive me if I choose not to delete it.

Not a Clooney fan myself, but you are right about my taste for Federer and Banderas. {"Two out of three ain't bad..." }

Hi everybody!

Sunday's festival was great.
Paul Rodgers's voice is still awesome. I liked his previous guitarist better (Geoff Whitehorn, spelling?) but still i liked Howard Leese (formerly with Heart) better than expected.
Marc Ford was very good as well. A very diverse set that climaxed with a strong rendition of "Going Down" and "Are You Experienced?" (thank God, not another "Hey Joe, Purple Haze, Redhouse or Voodoo Chile" cover but instead a less popular Hendrix classic).
Gary Moore was a bit disappointing. But maybe due to various reasons. It rained during his set, i've seen him at least a dozen times and he doesn't have big surprises in his setlists.
His setlist also leaned to heavily on "Still Got The Blues" from 17 years ago and there were to many slow blues and ballads in a row. His son Jack Moore guested on Rhytym guitar.
But Gary had some aces up his sleeve. After his set John Mayall and The bluesbreakers started over on the other stage and were half way the show joined by Gary Moore who stayed for the entire 2nd part of the 65 minutes set. He played great but without the flash and stayed humble next to the Godfather of The British Blues. His Gibson Les Paul blended in really well with Buddy Whittington's Fender Strat.

Joe Bonamassa and Eric Sardinas went over really well with the crowd. I missed most of Joe's set but saw the Led Zep song that ended his set. I saw him twice in a year already and he is so popular at the moment i guess i gonna see and hear a lot more from him in the near future so i took a break to get some food and brews. Eric Sardinas didn't impress me that much. He played on a beautiful semi-accoustic and a dobro but it was all a bit cliche ridden (Jack Daniels, Harley Davidson, macho biker stuff etc.). Well maybe i just wasn't in the mood.

Headliner John Fogerty was simply awesome. The voice, the guitar(s), the timeless songs,
it was all there. Although he didn't play "Suzy Q", "Sweet Hitchhiker" and "I Put A Spell On You" he played a whole lot of other CCR classics and solo songs. Most of the time there were 4 guitarists on stage including John. Kenny Aaronof's (spelling?) drumming was the icing on the cake. One of the most impressive rock drummers i ever saw.
John Fogerty is going to release a new studio cd in september called "Revival" and introduced 2 new songs. A poppy song which tittle i forgot and didn't impress me that much from the first hearing but the other song "Summer Of Love" was a great raucious rocker which might become an instant classic. Apparantly it was "family day": Gary Moore brought out his son and John Fogerty brought out 2 sons to play rhytym guitar!
At that moment there were 5 guitarists on stage but still the live sound was great.

Time to go to bed now................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Sounds like a good lineup. Glad to hear Paul Rogers still has it- sitting here listening to a Free show from 1970 in Copenhagen right now.

If you like Geoff Whitehorn find a copy of the Crawler album from 1977 simply titled Crawler . Geoff "replaced" Kossoff after his death and also appears on the Second Street - Back Street Crawler album ,finishing what Kossoff started. The Crawler album is the best of their work imho and I'm a huge Kossoff fan so that's saying something.

Hello fellow International Loungers ... I thought you might like a brief resumé of my past weekend .....

Saturday, I travelled up to London with Janet late morning arriving just in time for "a pie and a pint" for lunch at a local hostelry. In the afternoon we went to Tower Bridge and took the tour ... something neither of us had done before ... you get to go up one of the tower legs, walk across the top, then go down the other side before going below ground to see all of the ancient mechanisms for raising the bridge. There is a historical narration all the way through describing the history of the bridge, how it was built etc ... which as a bridge designer I found particularly fascinating, and surprisingly so did Janet.

After this it was time to head across town and check in to our hotel ... after a quick lick behind the ears we were off down the street heading for the "Pillars of Hercules" pub where the pre-show beers were to be had. Imagine my surprise when just a block from the Hotel I ran into Del & Heidi (from Norway) who had flown over for the gig ... after the obligatory hugs, to the bemusement of general passers by, we proceeded to the aformentioned place of libation.

This had to be the best pre-show turn out yet for any of the UK gigs ... in addition to myself and Del, there was Mike (peach-head), Alan (alans), Jim (JimRudge), Dave (scotiadave), Barry (Hippy69), Gordon (Shavian) and Keith (geordielad) ... all of whom had various friends with them ... it all made for a great pre-show (and post show) session.

With regards to the Mule show itself ... I can understand all the different opinions passed elsewhere on this site ... when you get a band with such a wide repertoire as the Mule everybody has their favourites and the fact is that they can't play them all every night ... truth be told I have not yet been to an ABB gig where I liked every single track they played, and it is over-optopmistic to expect that ... the bottom line is that I had an excellent night with great company and experienced a good show that I thoroughly enjoyed.

If I was forced to analyse, I would have to say that I preferred the first set ... and whilst I would not go so far as to say I was bored at any point, there was one track in the second set where the "jam" was wont for a little inspiration. But hey ... it was an "avant garde improvisation" moment and I dare say if I had been under the influence of some substance other than alcohol I might well have got off on it a bit more ...

I was very pleased that Hook Herrera came over to guest ... always guarantees a few bluesy numbers which I enjoy ... and at the end of the day I don't believe in comparing this show with that which had gone before ... the fact is that I had a great time and enjoyed this show for what it was and very much look forward to the next time the Mule privelege me with their company in my country ...

After the show we went back to the pub for a while before heading back to the Hotel ... unfortunately the Hotel had a bar in the foyer that was still open so I couldn't pass up the opportunity of a last brew or two with friends before bedtime ...

On Sunday, Jan and I did some more tourist things ... visited the Tower of London that I had not been to since I was a kid (films were in black and white back then!!!) and walked along the Thames path which was littered with various celebrations (Turkish Fair - Dance Exhibition - Wedding Party etc etc) ... a nice finalé to a great weekend ...

Now we are looking forward to Thursday night when Gregg & Friends will be in Town ...

Hi all...Hi Colin!

Thanks for your update, Colin. Sounds like you had an altogether wonderful Mule-time the other evening. Thanks for posting that pic of y'all post show in AG. I enjoyed seeing Jan especially. So glad Jan got the Mule experience. Is she a Warren/Mule convert now?!

Hope you had an awesome time seeing Gregg et al. tonight. I'm sure you did!


Less than two weeks for me until I get the opening two nights of the 07 ABB run. Looking forward to the whole experience.

Loving vibes to all...
