stockholm syndrome

I've been going through some old photos on my computer's hardrive and clearing them off and I came across this gem of a moment from the summer of 2003. It's from the tullycraft tour of Europe that I was fortunate to have been a part of. This was a fun night performing on the top of the Kulturhusterassen[Contemporary Art Museum] in downtown Stockholm with a fantastic view of the rooflines of the city from where I was standing. It was a fun night, and a fantastic two week tour that culminated at Emmaboda, a big outdoor music festival they hold every summer in Sweden. Loads of bands are invited to play at it, and it really fulfilled a rock dream of mine, massive crowd screaming, and waving flags and singing along to tullycraft songs. Sweden, Norway, England, Holland, it was a fun, fun thing to be a part of, and my memories of it are fond ones. Corianton Hale took over for me, just as I had in taking over from Gary Miklusek, and I really feel Cori fits in better, especially in context with where the band is now musically. Sean and Chris work their butts off getting recording set up, shows lined up, and on and on. I'm one crap of a guitarist anyhow, which I always felt held some of the music up, but for a brief time, it was rock n roll fun and I wouldn't trade any day of it. Thank you Sean, Chris, Jeff and Gary, for letting me be a part of it!

I wouldn't give up my 15 minutes at the Vogue for anything. Well, maybe for half an hour at the Squid Row. Painting is so lame compared to music.

Ahhh! The days of Squid Row. I saw The Congratulators tear that place up one night.

Wow. That looks like a great time. But how do you have nightlife in a city that's light until 3 am?
