Germany near Köln
Vlaardingen – Hürth – Vlaardingen: 560 km.
We left home
by car 4:30pm and easy driving to Köln were we arrived at
A oldie night indoors at “Haus Burgpark” Ray was onstage at
10:15pm and did a half playback show for about 30 minutes. In
the dressingroom Ray realised he packed the wrong guitar,
instead the white guitar he packed the Gibson Les Paul, no
problem ofcourse. People were up and bopping to Dust Pneumonia
Blues and were well into Partyland and the new version of Lady
Rose, by the time Ray got into In The Summetime the dance floor
was packed full of people.Some lapse made by the technic, first
they start the wrong music, instead of Lady Rose they started
another tune and during DPB the microphone crashed. After the
show we chat backstage with Ray and his wife Britta and Ray
brought us some great new stuff, thanks to Michael Pohl.
Ray signed the France cd-single “In The Summertime 2002”
wich I received the same morning from Jean Jacques Bedrossian.
We left around half past midnight for our journey back home. It
was again a great evening…….Thanks Ray.
“Lady Rose” Nienke.
