Cologne Day Off

6.11.07 Köln, Välipäivä






Hotellihuoneessa oli vastassa oikein maalaus. Kaikissa huoneissa oli kait vähän niinkuin eri..Oli taas aikaa levähtää, kunnes Jörg soitti ja ilmoitti nyt meidän on aika lähteä metsästämään mulle uutta langatonta..ei helevetti, hirvee kanuuna ja täytyy lähteä pyöriin keskustaan..no ei vais, oli ihan kiva saada vähän raitista ilmaa. Löydettiin musakauppa kyllä, mutta ei sit kuitenkaan vehjettä mitä haettiin. Jörg muisti, että hänellähän on diili tuonne Bayer Dynamicille, joten otetaan langaton sieltä. Kaveltiin sitte vaan takasinpäin ja matkalla otettiin oikein kunnon Dönerit!






Bändille oli varattuna sellainen kiinalais-tyyppinen hieronta. Se teki kyllä niin kutaa, että. Tuossa kun soittelee noita keikkoja, juoksee ja hyppii ja heiluttaa tukkaa, niin ei ole edes hirveän liioiteltua tuo hieronta.






Illalla oli pikku bändipalaveri managementin kanssa. Siitä lähdettiin koko porukka syömään saksalaista perinne-ruokaa. Continental Conserts tarjosi. Ite otin tuollaisen Schweinshaxen. Se on veistetty sian persauksesta..Luut ja kaikki törrötti härskisti. Maku oli kyllä ihan kuin grillikyljessä tai joulukinkussa..Tommy sanoi heti, että oot kyllä aikaa ennakkoluuloton tuon ruuan suhteen ja kuinka se mun ruoka näytti suoraan kuin Asterixista! Se tais ite ottaa sellaisen Wiener Schnizelin..Tavalliselta Wienin leikkeeltä se näytti :-) Yöllä käytiin piipahtamassa paikallisessa irkku-baarissa. Kyllä se pikkutunneille meni taas.











Tässä muuten vielä muutama linkki, joilla olemme itseämme viihdyttäneet täällä tien päällä:
11/06/07 Cologne, Day Off






I had this painting in my hotel room. Every room had a different kind of paintings..There was some time to rest until Jörg called and said that now is the time to go and buy you this wireless for your guitar. Holy shit, terrible hang-over and I had to go running around the city..Well, it was nice to have a little bit of fresh air. We found this music store, but not the thing we were looking for. Then Jörg remembed that he has this deal with Bayer Dynamic so we´d get the wireless later. We walked back to the hotel and took Döners with us on the way.






We got this chinese type of massage at the hotel. First time for me but it was really good. When you are playing a lot of shows, running around the stage and banging your head, it´s not exaggerated to have a massage.






In the evening we had a small meeting with the management. From there we went to have a dinner. Traditional German food. I had this Schweinshaxe. It´s like an ass of the pig. Great! There were some bones sticking out of the meat. Tommy said to me something like how unprejudiced I am with my food and my food looks like straight from The Asterix. He ordered some normal Wiener schnitzel or something :-) At night we went to this Irish pub. It was late night again…
Here´s a couple of links that have been very amusing to us on the road:

Hi!
I enjoy so much reading what you do on your trip! I hope you'll have a great time in Spain too (where I'm from)!

Byebye! And by the way... That German food looks good!

Terve Elias,

Me and my 4 friends enjoyed this great show in cologne! Definitely a night to remeber. Thanks so much!! Hope you had a nice night with us. And thanks for the pick. You are a really adorable motif, I have some really good shots of you :)
I was the strange girl in front of you with the white sleeves. Don't think you remember, but :D :D

Will upload some pics on your site.

Hope to see you soon on stage!
Thanks again :-* \m/ and greets to all the rest of the band :)
Kiitos

Konny

wow, the show yesterday in cologne was really amazing! just can't get enough of the Vodka-Song :). Your guitar solos were quite different from the original ones (my ears think so ;) ) but also really cool.

Hope you and the rest of Sonata will come soon to cologne again and i hope to see you on wacken open air next year.

Keep on rockin,

Jimmy'Z

The show last night in cologne was brilliant!
But it was a little bit sad, that there was no time after the show for some pics and autographs. I hope next time will be. Maybe Wacken :)
Enjoy the rest of the tour!
