man at work



rock to stay alive



meanwhile i got my balls grabbed again - it was the ugly one from some time ago - i prayed to the lord that she doesnīt squeeze me so i stood this torture. why wasnīt she joining the bar for some more drinks ? she looked for someone for the night and i was the casualty. oh no... i am a man who canīt pound a woman - but in this case i would make an exception - it wasnīt a woman - it was an animal...



nibbs presentating his weapon - and the band played on...

after the gig we went to the finale sports bar again (itīs our second home you know) to finish the event with some more alcohol than needed. no rush any more - no dates for tomorrow - we were in heaven - only goss will join the gig the next day in leipzig but he is a well-trained tough guy and didnīt mind.



the tables were always full of beer - the next drink was on the table before the last one was empty - we ordered like mad...



some last pictures not to be forgotten

for comparison: this is how we looked like at the sports bar after the gig:



weīll meet again - thatīs what we promised...

and then some later - who came into the bar and joined us ?

BIG BROTHER

wow !

he had no chance to get a drink in peace - we were lurking everywhere he went

but i think he really enjoyed our company as well as we loved his. so he asked "you enjoyed the show ?" imagine our answers by yourself... he took a chair in our middle and thatīs what it was - the beginning of a very nice over 2 hours lasting pub-event. as it wasnīt luck enuff that nigel joined us here - who followed ?

the mighty

NIBBS

nibbs and john entered the bar so it had to be renamed - it was the "finale saxon bar" on that day. it seemed that this night would last forever. everyone was talking with everyone and the hours were passing by like seconds. i had some chatting in german with nibbs - he understood everything i said and vice-versa. nige gave me some lessons in english. i asked him about his injury some time ago when he wasnīt able to drum any more - where the injury was - at his shoulders or on his backside. i learned that the "backside" is on the back side but what i meant was the "back" and not lower. nice lingual game - itīs fun to translate my german thoughts into english - funny but painful. he understood my problem and explained me where his backside was. okay - thanks for this lesson.

we had fun all the way. some beers & hours later unfortunately the big boss entered the bar and announced the departure. good luck and stay healthy nibbs & nigel - may john sell millions of merchandises and see you on the next gigs. cheers.

it was late in the night or should i say early in the morning as we went back to the hotel. we said goodbye to huw and fingers as they had to call a taxi because their hotel was somewhere else - kind of a sad moment. what i remember was that we hadnīt enuff time for sleep. we woke up nearly too late to join the breakfast - they were so kind to allow us to eat late. after breakfast (very fast) we went down to the saxonmobile to take goss in our arms again and to wish him good luck and fun on the leipzig gig. we werenīt able to join leipzig because saxonfan had to catch his flight back to his family so thatīs what it was for us. goodbye goss and see you soon. there he went - the always well-prepared english manīoīwar heading to see the saxon five once again. the next sad moment. but weīll see again soon

full of memories and with 1000 airplanes in the stomach we had a nice trip back home

suddenly we saw a very dangerous traffic sign:



it was very hard for me not to turn the car heading leipzig........

so this is the end of our berlin trip

now - over 8 hours after starting this review i hope some of you will enjoy it



thanks again to the band for a time we will never forget

thanks to thomas for making the photos and to let us join the soundcheck

thanks to john for providing some nice new stuff

thanks to the parents of goss fingers huw and saxonfan for making such nice blokes

thanks to northernlady for being by my side






yours truly

SAXONATOR

Absolutely fantastic review!! I was smiling and laughing all the way through - I just LOVE the way you write, I could read it all day!

I particularly liked "is Fingers fingering me"...and that about the "ugly bitch" grabbing your balls - I literally DID laugh out loud at that bit!! Brilliant!! Thanks for taking the time to complete the gig review - can't wait to read the Astoria one...or maybe I can, 'cos I won't be there to meet you and Northernlady
