Meeting Megadeth

I used to do radio work here in little Kalundborg, a local station called KLR (Kalundborg Lokalradio), which shut down years and years ago.

Monique went through some of my pictures (she is doing a blog about my wild and crazy youth, I think) and came across this photo that I took of Megadeth back in 1992 at the Roskilde Festival. Man, those were fun times. I was at a big interview session with a few other radio stations and magazines and it was a really cool thing to try, especially since Megadeth is one of my favorite bands. Now I just need to find the autographs that I got from them too. I wonder where they are? Anyway, it was a pleasure to meet them, Dave was clean at the time and got to show us that between the anger you can find a very intelligent man, something that he definitely has shown in his older days. He talked a lot about staying clean on the tour and how hard it was, because when you are a rock star, everything is made available to you. It's just to tell the right people what you want and you will have it within minutes, including drugs etc. I am glad that he had time to find himself, I think it is something that you can really hear in the last couple of albums. The aggressiveness is still there, but the anger is a little different and I think it suits them great.

IMO, the latest Megadeth album has to be one of the best ever...

Zombie Painting

All I can say is... Wow... I love this painting. I have no idea who painted it or any details about it, but if the artist should ever read this, send me an email... :)

Christmas Eve, 2007

Thanks to my brother Torben and my sis-in-law Kirsten, who arranged everything, we had a GREAT Xmas eve. I got to celebrate Xmas with my Mom for the first time in 7 years!

Monique took tons of pictures and posted the best of them on her blog. I took the liberty of stealing the post for you to enjoy:

Glædelig Jul

Greetings to all!  We spent our Christmas with Torben and family.  Since I'm not much of a fan of this Holiday, I must say that spending it with the Petersen's was wonderful.  It brought back only one other Christmas memory when I was about 4.  A time where I new that I was loved by my grandparents, and that being around them meant everything to me.

As usual, I took tons of photos, but can only post my favorite.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Of course, it's hard to get a nice picture of the photographer, but I did manage to (kind of) find one in my sis-in-law's photos. Yup, that would be her in the background:

Alice Cooper & Uriah Heep

My wife and I went with a couple of friends to the Alice Cooper/Uriah Heep show in Copenhagen last night. It was lots of fun. I never really paid attention to Uriah Heep before, but they definitely convinced me. They're a great live act, and both Monique and I are looking forward to them coming back to Denmark as Headliners!

Alice Cooper was as good as always. Great show, though a little cut down compared to other times I have seen him, but still well worth the time and money. He brought a really talented guitar player, Jason Hook, who really kicked ass. Great great guitar player, whom I am sure we will hear more from in the future. On drums, once again, was Eric Singer from Kiss and ESP. I really enjoy his way of playing.

They played all the classics of course, and mixed in a few new songs. I kind of missed to hear something from Brutal Planet, but I guess it wouldn't have fit in with the rest of the songs, being much heavier than what he played last night. The style this time was more classic rock, much like the latest album, Dirty Diamonds.

Supposedly, a new album will be released early 2008. I hope he'll be back in Denmark for yet another show.

We were front row and I managed to take some reasonable photos using my cell phone. I hope you enjoy then.
