Terremoto Festival ,Guano Apes, Limp Bizkit, Placebo, Foo Fighters, Deftones, Muse, @ Trabrennbahn, Hamburg,Germany. 20-8-00




After the Highfields Festival we traveled onwards through the night to the Terremoto Festival in Hamburg. Waking up next morning, the first thing i see is Sandra looking out of the bus at something…that something was Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit , she’s quite a fan….& even rock stars can get star struck 😉 I think it might have been his birthday as i recall someone giving him a video camera as i walked past to catering. I’m also pretty sure that this festival was Limp Bizkits only show in Germany this year, so, no doubt that would have brought in some of the crowd. Actually, it’s a fantastic line up here today ! Henning had given me an advance copy of the DVD & later in the day Sandra & her sister watched it on the bus. I was lucky to be able to meet Dave Grohl & Brian Molko & have a nice chat with Dom (Muse) about how they were doing in the States etc. I was already a  fan of Muse after seeing them open for Skunk Anansie in ’99. My friend Fanny arrived later in the day so we both got to have some photos with the stars. We watched some of Guanos set from on the side stage then some from the photo pit. When everything was over, Fanny gave Henning a lift to the hotel he was staying at (The others took the bus back home). Next day i flew back to the UK. Driving home, my car exhaust partially came off ! I used the pass band to tie it up to get me back home haha

Highfield festival, Guano Apes, Placebo, Beck, Muse, Rollins Band , @ Erfurt Germany. 19-8-00



Met the GA crew previous night in Gottingen & traveled with them.Stopped off at some club in Dortmund & i was introduced to Jagermeister-on an empty stomach! Some stayed & traveled next day (sore heads!) but i got back on bus as already messed up enough! One stand out memory of the gig was Matt Bellamy (Muse) just going mental trashing his amps.Backstage, Dom (Muse drums) said he wasn’t stir crazy/burnt out,but i had my doubts! Muse were great!

Skunk Anansie, Muse, @ Rock City,Nottingham 21-10-99


The rubbish photo was took by me whilst on stage! Every so often on this tour, towards the end of the show, if Cass started playing a certain bass riff, it was a signal to get the audience up on stage! Obviously,being on front row, i had to do it. It’s rubbish photo as i was more interested in jumping around onstage with Da Skunks (plus, i was using film camera & never really took photos back in the day)
