Hot rum & honey in Berlin
I just woke up and had dinner with the band guys at this great Indian restaurant at Carmerstrasse, butter chicken as usual – very good again! I have slept most of the day because I felt a bit sick already last night during the show and sleeping is the best way of getting rid of the unwanted viruses in you system. Ok, I also ordered 4 shots of rum and honey from the hotel bar and I am mixing them with hot water. It’s cool that they have a water boiler in every room at this American-French hotel.
It’s pretty scary how every night after the show we have valued the current evening’s show as the best so far on tour. I mean mostly thinking about our playing etc., but also the crowd noise and stuff. And it happened last night again in Hannover. I love the Capitol Club. The audience is on two floors and I guess everyone can see the stage pretty well. The crowd sounded so loud last night. Sometimes the crowd sounds louder because of the structure of the room or the building materials and sometimes they are just louder ;)
The scary thing is that at some point on every tour, there is at least one show where we are not that happy with our own performance. Most of these tiny mistakes don’t probably even show to the crowd but it always effects on the other band members when some one plays totally wrong. Hope that day is not tomorrow.
Tomorrow we also film the whole show at Columbia Halle in Berlin and there are several service providers who will broadcast the show on the web too. I will put a link at the end of this blog. Being full of slime was not on my wish list for tomorrow night, but what can you do. We have a good survival pack for moments like this at the backstage. I hope the bus flu goes away soon and we get to enjoy the rest of the trip healthy.
Thank you all for the great night in Hannover. I listened to the show on tape today and it sounded amazing!!!
Keep your fingers crossed for tomorrow and lest rock the arena like hell again!!
PS. Hot rum and Honey (and lemon) is a great way of getting rid of flu. Trust me – I’ve been there many times ;)
