Notes From das Boot 107

Dessel, Belgium (Graspop) 6/25/11

At Graspop today (or Asspop if it’s a bad day), saw a cool Electric Wizard shirt, unfortunately it was in black and since one of my chief exports is dandruff, black shirts are out. Lighting desk decided to take a shit halfway thru the set, everything was frozen. It finally got fixed with two minutes left in the show. We played the Sonisphere fest in Switzerland yesterday, it was a micro-managed clusterfuck, where the power kept cutting out and a bunch of bands got their time slots changed with little or no notice. I did see an old friend though, Ian. He was our guitar tech on a miserable yet often very funny tour we did with the Cult about a million years ago. It was good catching up. I also saw another old tech, Chris. Now, I had forgotten Chris’s name, which was ok for a brief hello, but we had a longish conversation where he called me by my name about ten times. It was good to see him but we had talked so long that I was beyond the point of “I forgot your name”. I got out of the conversation and prayed that I wouldn’t run into him again. Of course I did, the first two times I did the fake cell phone call with an acknowledgment nod. The third time, I just ducked out the closest door and wound up in a parking lot where I had to climb through a thorn bush to get to the next door to get back in to avoid Chris. Man, I got some fuckin’ problems.
