...and that's it for 2009!

Although I don't think that anything really changes just because it's a new year or even decade, I still wanna wish all of you a happy new year! I hope it'll be all you want it to be! Enjoy tonight's party if you're going to one! Well, simply enjoy whatever you're doing, especially if it involves sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll!

I also wanna thank you - especially the regulars and the guys leaving comments or using the shoutbox - for sticking and bearing with me. Your honest interest and friendly words are really keeping me going and are making this worthwhile!

Keep on rocking in the new year!

...and don't forget to boogie!

WHAT'S NEXT: I'm just uploading another DVD for you guys to start the new year properly: with rock music!

John Fogerty - Lucca Summer Festival, July 26th 2009

John Fogerty - Lucca Summer Festival, Lucca, Piazza Napoleone, July 26th 2009
You can't go too wrong with John Fogerty in my opinion. He's still a brilliant and dedicated singer and musician and he has so many classics up his sleeve, the chance that one of his shows will turn out boring is very small.
Compared to some other shows he has played in the last decade, he is playing not too many of his standards. Nothing wrong with that, nice to see he isn't solely relying on stuff written 30 years ago, although I wouldn't mind a set consisting of classics only! You know what I mean...
I'm sure you will enjoy this show, from the first powerful seconds of "Up around the bend" on you'll know that this is a goodie! Enjoy!!!!

Blue Cheer - Bonn, Harmonie, April 11th 2008


Blue Cheer - Bonn, Harmonie, Crossroads Festival, April 11th 2008

As most of you will know, Dickie Peterson died in October. In his memory, here's a more recent Blue Cheer show. It was recorded in Germany, where he has been living for a while already.

I don't need to explain the importance of this band for rock music to any of you. The impact they caused with their first album can still be felt and who knows what we might be missing today if it had never been recorded (except for the great album itself, of course!!!). All of you who have seen Blue Cheer live will remember the powerful show and their very sympathetic front man. You could tell how much he was into what he was doing.

He'll be missed!!! Please enjoy this show and remember Dickie!

Ike and Tina Turner - Portland, March 24th 1974


Ike + Tina Turner - Portland, University Of Maine, March 24th 1974

Something a little bit different for you... When it comes to Tina Turner's career after her comeback in the eigthies - I couldn't care less!!! It obviously was a huge success with millions of people out there, but I just can't stand it. If she wants to cultivate a hedge on her head, fine with me! Sadly, that alone won't make her money I guess....

Whatever - this is a nice show, check it out! Tina doesn't join the band until "Sweet Soul Music", so don't let her absence during the first track confuse you! The crows seems to enjoy this a lot, I hope you will, too!

01 - Intro - Space Race 
02 - El Burrito  
03 - I Feel Allright  
04 - Shaft  
05 - Sweet Soul Music

Before the decade is over....

Hey everyone,

I know I haven't been posting a lot this month, but there wasn't much I could do about it. Don't wanna go into details and bore you with them, but I wanna do things right and if I can't I'd rather not do (post) anything at all...

Anyway, here are some new boots for you! I'll try to start posting on a regular base again, but I have tons of stuff to catch up with, so forgive me if things are moving a bit slow at first - thanks!

Ka-boom!!! ...and thanks for voting!


I'm terribly sorry, but I'll have to take another break for a day or two. My computer obviously got infected by a virus from a friend's USB-stick. Damn!!! Gimme a day to fix this and I'll be back posting!

Isn't that just great? It seems that just when I started to feel okay again, my 'puter decided to get sick....

I'm posting this from a friend's machine, but I can't (ab)use it for uploads, of course.

Thanks for voting!!!!!

On a different note: Thanks to everyone who has voted for or against full DVDs or admitted being lost wherever! I really appreciate it. I honestly didn't expect that many people to vote! Cheers!

Consequently, my next post will be a full DVD, I think will probably post one every week or maybe every other week depending on the number and size of files.

Thanks again for understanding and participating!!!

P.S.: Don't worry, the pic above is not a pic of my computer! Gladly, most known malware won't cause it to catch fire!!!
