This was a crazy day!
People were calling all the time and we were mostly driving around 'from here to there, and then there to that place but wait, we should probably go there first so let's go back and then we go to that place' etc
Was a small gig at the Clarion Hotel. Was just a small PA that we used but the band was great.
Today was also a small gig but at the Scandic Hotel. We used the same PA as yesterday but we also had some lights, not much though. The bands were pretty nice but the acoustics of the room wasn't too great.
When we were done with de-rigging, around 00:00 we went to the Conventum Arena to help de-rig after a pretty big party. Weren't done until 6 am...
I fell asleep in my bathrobe on the couch about two hours later \m/,
After months of using headphones that crackle I decided it was time to fix them.
Didn't take long at all to remove the three screws holding it together and it did definitely take even shorter amount of time to find the problem; Just a jammed cable...
Have no idea how that happened but now it works great and without problems.
Today's been a pretty good day.
For once I actually recorded something I created. Well, it's a crap rec, just so I remember how the song should go but it's a start. I sat down with the guitar when I got home at around 8 pm and the time now is 11.
Don't have a name yet and no lyrics, the drums is in my head.
I would say it's a punk/rock song with a Howler-twist to it \m/,
Maybe I let you hear a sample of it when I'm ready.
I didn't do that much. Started rather late this day so just spent about 4 h at the firm grinding off rust of yet another dolly.
Spent the day at Club 700 rigging for the In Flames concert. Mostly lights and some PA speakers.
The day of the concert. Started working at 9:30 am and didn't finish until 2 am, although between 2-9:30 pm it was really slow and we didn't have much to do.
The show was great and I really liked how after when Anders told the people to crowd surf, fuckin' everyone started to do it. Awesome!
After 50 years in the business and 88 years old, the creator of the Marshall amplifier Jim Marshall died in cancer yesterday!
Since I first started with music the one amp I always wanted to have is a Marshall amp and now I get to know that the one who invented it has passed away...
It is a sad day which cannot be described in words.
All I can do right now is to thank for what you have given the world and me, you are a legend.
"While the entire Marshall Amplification family mourns Jim's passing and will miss him tremendously, we all feel richer for having known him and are happy in the knowledge that he is now in a much better place which has just got a whole lot louder!" - http://www.jimmarshall.co.uk/
Not much happened during week two. Was only with him during Friday when there was this small music competition for 13-19 year old kids we were sound engineer's for.
Didn't have to build a stage or anything, just some A/V rigging and fixing the drums/amps etc.
During the week after I only worked for two days.
Some A/V rigging for Takida's concert the day after.
The first bigger show I've helped out with as an intern so it was a little interesting.
Fixing the side clusters
Clean it up before the band arrived and if they needed it, help the roadies.
It was a long day and we "worked" 12 pm to 1:30 am (except for a long break between 4-10 pm...), starting to de-rigg at around 10-10:30.
The band was awesome and Robert's singing was definitely as great as on the recordings \m/,
A rock and blues guitarist, singer & songwriter who is most known for his work as a guitar player with The Allman Brothers Band and a founding member of the band Gov't Mule.
His music is very easy yet interesting to listen to and so is his guitar play.
Haynes is the also the founder and manager of Evil Teen Records.
Everyone must at least have heard the name Gary Moore once in their life. This man really got talent.
I think he's most known for his song "Over the Hills and Far Away" though "Still Got The Blues" is also very known.
He died in a heart attack in his sleep last year, 58 years old.
