Yes… great gig, just drank a little to much and then had a severe case of stage fright when meeting the man himself. Wasn’t helped by the fact that J looked absolutely terrified of me – anyway, if your reading this, thanks muchly for the photo and would like to repeat that i am not a physco – that would be Mikeey! Please come again!!!September 16, 2002 at 10:22 am #62857
Thanks for the reviews guys <img>September 17, 2002 at 7:32 am #62858
Mikeey & Breezy – thank goodness, I thought i was the only one who frightened J (asked for his autograph). The great man looked a bit puzzled. And that was before he’d even started to leave the stage area and walk through the adoring crowd.
Finally, I’ll never forget the main man and his rucksack ! <img>September 17, 2002 at 9:56 am #62859
Hey Sludgefest – thanks for that, put my mind
to rest, at last. He looked at me like i was seriously deranged though – which i am not… promise. I think half of J’s charm is that he doesn’t get it i.e. he’s doesn’t realise what an absolute legend he is. I think next time we should all wait till he’s finish packing his stuff away and buy the man a beer….. how many beers would that be???? J pissed – now that’d be interesting!!!
May post the photo on the board if it’s not too embarrassing. Agree about the rucksack too – bloody classic.September 17, 2002 at 3:06 pm #62860
Breezy. U must post the picture…would be great to see if J looked bemused or not by your (not at all deranged) presence !!!
I think your spot on.. J probably doesn’t get the popularity/legend/importance thing. He sees people in awe of him with open mouths staring, so he does the same thing back…it may be an in-joke from J that we didnt get ….until now !!. Kracked it !
Also, who else would have setup their gear on stage from a rucksack (which also contained his clothes)..no-one.. ? weird, but somehow utterly brilliant.September 18, 2002 at 7:33 am #62861
No probs – will send you the picture….. will have to wait until after the weekend to use the rest of the film – going on a stag do so that should’nt be too tricky.September 18, 2002 at 7:39 am #62862
Stag do and cameras……lethal combination. Probably best you dont take the film to Boots or Tescos to be developed. Could be copper waiting for you at the till when you go to collect !September 20, 2002 at 1:00 pm #62863
Found this link to the drownedinsound.com review of the Metro gig. Short but amusing and complimentary !September 20, 2002 at 6:43 pm #62864
</font><blockquote><font>quote:</font><hr><font> … plays the noisiest acoustic guitar I’ve ever heard. </font><hr></blockquote><font>exactly <img>
hey SludgeFeast, thanks for the link, it’s a nice, but small review. And it’s a shame that none of the other media seemed to notice the gig….
Let’s hope that all of those guest list people were journalists in disguise who were there to promote J’s new album, soon <img>September 21, 2002 at 2:56 am #62865
Thanks for that – i’ve been looking everywhere….. even Kerrang.September 21, 2002 at 2:59 am #62866
And there we have it in writing ‘alt-rock guitar legend’….. must of missed the FIVE encores though. MIKEEEY!September 21, 2002 at 9:47 pm #62867
why j dosenÂ´t play in (north) germany???
@flying cloud at the grosse freiheit….i think you know it <img> ….it would be cool to sit on that fucking chairs and whatch j plays acoustic guitar……or a concert with only a few people……and everybody can stand in the first row…….*dreamingdreamingdreaming* <img> <img>

yeah, that would be cool, indeed <img> <img> <img>
first row would be cool, but I hope there would be more than just a few people <img>
there have been some hints during the last weeks that there might be a European solo acoustic tour in the fall, so we maybe just have to be patient… <img>September 23, 2002 at 2:20 am #62869
well…….i hope i can see j live…….either solo or with the fog….its all the same to me……..
J RULEZ!!!! <img>
by the way, do you know where i can get a t-shirt or maybe a patch for my school bag here in germany??September 24, 2002 at 4:13 pm #62870
