2015

So! It’s New Years Eve, and another year has just passed. Time for a lookback on the year that passed.

January

January held a lot of good CD releases – such as Serious Black’s “As Daylight Breaks” as well as Orden Ogan’s “Ravenhead”. Aside this, not a whole lot happened. I removed one tooth, and at the end of the month I went to Västerås to catch Amaranthe a little randomly. Was a great show, and a great way to warm up for next month’s endeavors!

February

February on the other hand… Was very eventful. It started with a trip to Germany with the besties to catch HammerFall and Lordi live as they played on the same time in Frankfurt. We were joined by good friends and met some new ones. Two extremely good shows, and the week after they were followed by a little mini tour – starting at SlipKnot in Sweden, which was a show I had looked forward to for soooo long! It was an amazing show, and I headed off to Finland to catch Stala&SO., Amaranthe and SlipKnot again.

On a more sad note… Simon Cruz left Crashdiet without any real reason. That was… odd, if you ask me.

March

March was the big travel month for me. At the middle of March, I set off on a one week tour that stretched over a couple of countries. Started out in Belgium where I met and caught Amaranthe live again, meeting Elize was beyond amazing. What a sweetheart! We continued on to Spain for some tourism and catching Lordi again on their Scare Force One tour, meeting not only the monsters but also the amazing supportbands that was Dirty Passion and Hollywood Groupies. We went back to Norway to catch our loves that is Steel Panther, and then I almost missed the bus to go see Katy Perry.

Just a week later we headed off to Southampton to celebrate Paula’s birthday at the Lordi show there, where we met Nathan and had some very interesting time with the monsters.

April

On April 1st I headed back to Belgium and again caught Steel Panther live, went home, landed, re-packed, and went off to Brighton to catch the tour finale of Scare Force One. It was literally one of the best nights, spending time with amazing people and having a certain guitarplayer surprising you in the crowd. We also had the most luxus hotel ever.

Aside this, not a lot happened. Jennie and I started prepping the summercabbage, and we spent many cold nights there.

May

SWEDEN FUCKING WON EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, NEED I SAY MORE?

June

Sweden Rock Festival, which was a hit! I spent most of it alone, except when I met up with Paula and Hansi, and bumped into Robert! But I don’t complain, it was a lot of amazing shows of amazing bands, and I simply love this festival. At the end of the month I headed back off to Belgium to Graspop Metal Meeting, which was also spent mostly alone, but again: Amazing. Butcher Babies, Alice Cooper, H.E.A.T and of course SlipKnot. Korpiklaani. Need I say more?

July

July July… first we surprised Nathan with an Alice Cooper show at Gröna Lund, which was beyond amazing! Later followed Väsby Rock Festival with Paula, Robert Sofia and Johanna which was also, beyond amazing. Danger Danger… seriously I just love them. Seeing Åge in action with Ammunition was… so good. To see him happy again, you know?

One week later was Noch Ein Bier fest, which might actually add up to be one of the best trips this year. Three days in Gelsenkirchen with my ladies – Madlen and Michelle. Warm and sunny days except from Noch Ein Bier which was rainy as fuck.

August

Once again, of course Skogsröjet. The coziest festival on earth. Skid Row with Tony Harnell was amazing, but then again, everything Tony Harnell touches is amazing. The festival was great as usual. I also saw my voice acting hero Annika Herlitz live in action on her tour. We once again went to Liseberg for my birthday.

September

Korpiklaani! Two shows of one of the best bands in the world (which I say about almost any band). We had the most fun we’ve ever had at a show, and our legs were so sore we couldn’t even walk. But we also got a lot of compliments on everything, so I guess it’s a good thing?

October

Started out the month with FINALLY seeing Dynazty live on their Renatus tour when they were opening for W.A.S.P, and we also attended a guitarclinic with Doug Blair. Later in the month I headed off to Belgium again for some shows – First and foremost Delain on their The Human Contradiction tour and wrapping up with Powerwolf’s Wolfsnäschte tour. Two amazing shows, and catching up with good friends in Daniel, Laura and Cyril. We spent some time with the guys in Civil War after the show as well, amazing people!

November

Technically, Powerwolf was in November, but I threw them in in October. In November we saw the final show for the year – HammerFall in Scandinavium. Supporters for the day was Edguy and Civil War, and it was one of the most amazing shows ever. We were invited by Civil War to the afterparty and had a blast. A good way to end the year, if you ask me!

But perhaps the most importantly… was the final show ever with Mötley Crüe. A very emotional night, bittersweet if you like. Amazing set by Alice Cooper, and a fantastic one with Mötley. Spent with Michelle and Robert, couldn’t think of better company.

December

December was a slow month, mostly preparing for Australia…. only to learn that the festival has been cancelled. Gladly, we could easily re-book the trip to later.

 

So… I guess that’s my year in short. Let’s take a look at the predictions:
* Double my CD collection. I currently hold about 250 cds, more or less, and I wish to reach 500 before the end of 2015.
* Travel somewhere new. I have plans, and I hope they hold.
* Accomplish something. Just anything.
* See Bon Jovi live again
* See Korpiklaani live again
* Audition

So, I did see Korpiklaani, I traveled somewhere new and accomplished something. I didn’t reach the top of my CD collection, I only made it to 300, which is great.

So for this year..

  • Make it to 400 CD’s. Let’s make it a little more… achieveable.
  • Travel somewhere new. Aside what we have already planned.
  • See Civil War live again
  • Get somewhere new.
