Sweden epilogue...onto to Spain! 
Monday, June 11, 2012, 06:20 PM
The day after Twisted played Sweden was pure afterglow. I walked about the streets in Kristianstad, sampled the tasty treats of street vendors and just enjoyed the rare sunny day. To my delight, I spied a big, white box truck bearing the Motorhead logo, parked alongside a matching VW bug. Figuring it was band gear, I snapped a few photos of the logo-emblazened bug and spent the rest of day perusing the shops and sampling baked goods.

Back at our hotel, I had a few moments to chat with Hal Patino of King Diamond--what a great guy! He had his son with him (also a very nice chap!) and he handed me his new prToject, fresh off the press. The name of the band is: Maryann Cotton, the CD is entitled: "Free Falling Angels." Our hotel had been playing Iron Maiden over their sound system for three continuous days. (With one exception--they played Dee's Broadway album--not only does it totally rock, but it goes great with bread and cheese--I enjoyed brunch that much more because Dee was playing!)

I asked the staff of the hotel if they were getting royalties from Iron Maiden--not that I minded hearing Flight of Icarus in the elevator, but by the third day....even a total Iron Maiden fan like myself needed a breather. So they popped in Maryann Cotton and we had an impromptu listening party! way cool.

The day got even better from there--I met Mikkey Dee (formerly of King Diamond, now of Motorhead, out on the street--he was showing some fans what was stored in the back of that box truck: two BEAUTIFUL custom Victory motorcycles, each with a portrait of Lemmy on the tank. Fantastic! I first met Mikkey Dee about 20 years ago when King Diamond played "The Living Room" with Armored Saint--he is such a nice guy--I still have the drumstick he handed me from all those years back. What a thrill!

I had a chance to go back to the festival--and I'm so glad I did! I was able to hear Lynryd Skynyrd play a terrific set--and believe it or not, hearing "Freebird" live was on my bucket list! Cross off number #99. So many artists were crowded around backstage to hear them play--it was almost overwhelming to be surrounded by all of the talent concentrated in such a small area.

While I wasn't able to make it to the second stage in time, I could hear King Diamond's set. The fans I spoke to told me that his stage was visually amazing (dammit! sorry I missed it!) but I can tell you that it sounded awesome--King played a lot of his old stuff (including Mercyful Fate) and I was so thrilled that he sounded as phenomenal as the show I saw in 1988.

The night ended with Motley Crue closing out the festival bill--it was my first time, believe it or not, seeing them live--and I'm glad that I was able to see them play with their original lineup. (sometimes a rarity these days) I had to catch a ride back to the hotel before it got too late--so I wasn't able to stay til the end--but I can tell they opened with "Wild Side" and I heard "Shout at the Devil" and "Live wire" before I almost collapsed into the car to go back to the hotel.

The ride the next morning to the airport was a picturesque drive through the countryside--it could have easily been mistaken for the American midwest, except for the windmill farms dotting the landscape. What a beautiful country full of friendly people and great rock and roll.

And now...on to Spain, my babies!
