I think I'd been really upset if I had met those people. I'm growing fond of my facebooker now.

I was not fond of FB, but now, I think I'll be more on it. A very weird frenchie : all in english !
As a result of our week end in Paris, now, I must take care not to answer in english, when I'm asked something by surprise. AV side effect ! [smile2]


Whatever you do, never explain yourself : your friends don't need it, and your enemies won't believe you.

My Mexican friends aren't very happy that most of my posts are in English, not in Spanish. But some of them post in English for me.

They had never heard of Alphaville and had no idea it was an anniversary concert with long-time fans flown in from all over the world.
That's surprising. There were only one way to buy a ticket, and it's writen AV on it. So do they buy tickets without reading them ?

And on the Divan Website, it was said that it was for the 30th birthday of the band !

My point Malila, radio stations rule the music industry. Mumu evoked the tours of our french "oldies but goodies" singers/bands, and I once heard one of them saying "if you are not aired for some time, you're considered a dead one".

Yes, and if you're not aired, Music shops quickly forget you, and so does lot of people.

That was true for some years ago ,the music business crises
change the rules.
Today a band must search his public
trough concerts and touring, for old band live AV
the loyal fan base and some new fans is an insurance to sell
50000 albums worldwide even they are not played
by radio stations (except in Germany they home country).

What did fans do after the show?

They hung out, they drank, they talked, they swapped stories and they sung (until they closed the bar at 3am)!

Next time as we only meet up every five years we need to find a 24 hour bar!

Cool! Poor Keith centre-stage and proof I had a chat with Bernd [smile2]

Thanks for this Paul! Hope you and Jan are well!


Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.
