But I also agree with your selection!

Hoi Sérgio,
Hoe is het in Bologna?

Thanks, I like or will like most of them I think. Some names I have to check out! Can't get used to Billy Corgan's voice though, so no Smashing Pumpkins in my collection (though I do appreciate their work).

Hoi Erik,

I'm in a very productive fase. I'm literally finishing 2 projects. (1 of them I'm working on since october 2002 and the other one since march 2004. Both are scheduled for 2006 and they will both be send to you as I had already promissed!

Concerning the music:   
Moonspell - The Antidote doesn't want to leave the cd-player anymore. Besides the cd I also read the book from the Portuguese writer Jose Luis Peixoto that he wrote as an inspiration on the project of Moonspell and it is great. There are 2 cd versions. 1 with and 1 without the book from Peixoto. It is awesome. Peixoto had already 1 book published in Holland through Meulenhoff called "De Blik"...what a writer! What a storyteller! (By the way also the cd's Irreligious + Wolfheart are great)

Ill Nino - Revolution is also fantastic. It is a mix of English with Spanish lyrics...and the music blows you away.

These two just for a start  ;D

So I guess you are preparing for the gig of Arena in Holland...I hope it will be good...I just feel sad that I won't see them for the fact that I will miss John Mitchell's wonderful guitarplaying. They do a huge European tour and leave out Italy..hummmmm.

Anyway enjoy yourself and take care (don't forget to tell me how it was)...next time I'll write you through your official e-mailaddress!! :D

And I forgot (in my post some minutes ago) that I also feel sad for missing John Jowitt and Paul Wrightson for their short set of the Visitor because that was "my" Arena...but gee, I realised that I even saw Arena with their line-up of Keith More on guitars playing in Amsterdam, that must have been 96? 97?
And the years have passed...I see it everyday in the mirror, now that I have the "Jowitt-haircut"...  ;D

Cheerio

Erik, good to see you again. These days, you are a rare, cherished visitor  :)

Knowing you, my guess is that you're musically active at other places  ;)

Nicky.
So you've come of age
And so you want to meet God
Sure you can
He's right here next to me

[belated!] Thanks Nicky! :) I missed this post somehow!
I may take long leaves of absence, but I always return to the Room!
