I am not at all embarrassed about these to rock acts, especially if they get approved by lovely ladies.
It's very rare to meet people with a deacent rock and roll history that goes beyond the American/British hard rock. And it's practically once in a lifetime that they are women.
I had a 'once in a life time' twice last week
I was wearing my Danko Jones t-shirt to my daughters kindergarden - with the 'Born a Lion' logo - when a mother approached me with a thumbs up to Danko Jones (Canada). I didn't catch her name, but she's originally from Hamburg, Germany.
She actually knew them personally and went to a couple of concerts - sweet!
On satureday I attended Martin and Lisbeth wedding in Hansted, next to Horsens, DK.
That's when I met Peta and Justin from Australia. Coincidently AC/DC was playing in Horsens that very same day and they felt all at home. Everybody agreed that AC/DC live was great for a traditional danish wedding (not ;-), but I couldn't help asking about my favorite oldschool badboys rockband from Australia - Rose Tattoo.
Peta didn't just know them, she actually played a couple of supporting jobs with them - how cool is that?!!
Of course I stuck to Peta and Justin for the rest of the night (like a Rose Tattoo), since they had the best taste in music ;0)
However, only Peta had heard of The Temper Trap (Aus). I hope I inspired them to check them out when they got back.
With that experience shared, I'll end this post with a Rose Tattoo quote:
"Bad girls love bad boys, but good girls love 'em too" - I hope ;0)
