08th February 2003 - My birthday celebration

candle.jpg (32944 Byte)A little later than I had planned, my second bigger birthday party took place in the "New Metal-Bar". This will be a page to remember this great night which I hope won't be the last one! It will be a bit bigger because many different kind of pictures were taken. It was a little bit bigger party than the year before, because I had a gig with my projekt-band with Stefan and Marcin. We did a very rocking gig with some special effects and solos. I tried to play with burning drumsticks which did not work the way I wanted it to be, but I will improve on that for sure! There are photos of our gig, too. This time I invited some more and other friends of mine. Jan-Georg, Florian, Agnes, little Daniel and his family (Claudia, Sonja), Tina, Anna, the tall Frederik were new at my Metal-Bar this year as well as Maja with her mate and some other persons, sorry if I do not mention all of you! Although I felt a little bit ill (Yes, again and again!) it became a cool and loud party.
Thanks to everyone who made this night "A night to remember". First of all to my family for allowing me to celebrate, especially to my mom for the best and delicioust catering ever! Thanks to Tobias Tante, Tante "Walli" for the great salad! Thanks to my band colleagues Stefan "Peavy" and Marcin for this special performance (no thanks at all to Jan-Eike), to Jan for big help with the party and the fire performance. Thanks to Getränke STAUDE for supporting me with cool ald cold drinks at a fair price, to Christopher for being such a kind servant ("Drink faster, drink faster!"). Hi to Janne for sending sms messages from Sweden that day and wishing me a party that kicks ass! It would be too much to name everybody I would like to say thank you this time, but you know who you are, eh?

Band

name_how_it_started.gif (632 Byte)

I had already played in many bands and band projects up to now and I hardly could find a band I wanted to continue playing the drums in. I hardly ever had so much fun as I had with Stefan and Marcin and we will hopefully continue rocking the house and crowds!? We practiced for about one month and here is the result:

our fucking cool setlist:

Intro (Iron Savior - The Arrival)
Slayer Intro
Harvester Of Sorrow (Metallica)

Summer Of '69 (Bryan Adams)
Enter Sandman (Metallica)
For Whom The Bell Tolls (Metallica)

Guitar/Drum-Solo (Stefan/Marcin/Harald)
Drum Solo "Burning Sticks" (Harald)

Last Caress (v. a./Metallica)
Knockin' On A Heaven's Door (Bob Dylan)
