GROUNDED BY VOLCANIC STEELE

Photobucket

good people – just a few days into the tour in support of OOOM release,
we are grounded in Finland. Shows in Oslo @ Mono & in London @ Cargo have been cancelled. we’ve looked into every boat and driving option out there, grounded in Helsinki, considering a ferry to Sweden, but don’t quite know where we are heading….. but first we are playing a last minute lo-fi show to film for you ~ WISH YOU WERE HERE & WE WERE THERE VOLCANIC CLOUD SHOW X
stay tuned to twit & FB for details.

this explosion from the UNDERWORLD, has offered a moment for us to think.
get grounded.
also yesterday, beyond the news of the ICELANDIC volcano, was the loss of Type O Negative leader, Peter Steele: one of my few singer / bass player roll models, and a man of mythological proporsitions inside and out. his heart stopped (also of icelandic roots! he is surely SWIMMING IN THAT LAVA UNDERWORLD as i type…) sad sad loss of a unique music man. in light of my unknown weekend, and love of him …. the boys in my band and i, gave him a tribute…. of his incredible tribute to Sabbath.
(thank you for passing on your footage Samu Karlsson!)

for more on my love of Steele and my chance to meet him … ME & STEELE

so, i come all the way to europe to play most places for the first time in many years, and after utter perfection in Berlin, Paris & Amsterdam…… after a great Helsinki show, we are stopped in our tracks. we crossed this ocean to play, it was already a limited tour, so to loose OSLO & LONDON is heartbreaking.
after the helsinki show, i had some time to meet some amazing people. i recognized very quickly these like minded people, are the people i see in my minds eye, as i write and make things to share.
you are everywhere. these dreamers. these sweethearts. these lovers of sound.
in light of the Volcanic troubles and the fear about ice ages, and never being able to cross the ocean easily again…. i looked at these faces, full of passion, hope and excitement about the outside world…
and i group photo was taken, and someone made a joke of being a school photo…
making this the first CLASS OF HOPE 2010.
