Nice pics.....But a Shidoobee T-Shirt.....Ughhh.Quote
showday started with running at 5.a.m. in the morning to get our heads clear. thoughts have been rushing through our brains, charlie is coming, seeing stones friends again, will we get a signature from charlie, and so on.
i left work at 4 p.m. to drive to bad ischl, which is only 30 km from our hometown.
a short step in our stones measures, when i`m thinking of, that we had been already for example in california,montenegro,... to see charlie and the stones.
we left so early to get a good spot in front of charlie, but the first disappointment was, no entry till 06:30 p.m., then later on, no entry till 07:00 p.m.
at least, after freezing outside, we managed to take our place in front of charlie front row. everything was easy, no checks, no running, no pushing,like at stones gigs.
the location was named lehartheater, only about 400 people. it`s an old building, where already the austrian emperor in former times have been.
the show startet at 08:00 p.m., axel zwingenberger played piano alone, then came ben waters to support him on piano.
after 10-15 minutes it was time for mr.charlie watts and dave green to enter the stage, and since this time on, smiles from everybodies faces didn`t disappear.
charlie was such in a good mood, good condition and he really enjoyed to play this stuff, like boogie woogie, slow blues takes and rocking tunes from little richard, fats domino, jerry lee lewis,...
the crowd was singing, dancing, laughing and clapping hands all the time, in one word: a firework of good music and good mood
thanks mr ben waters, who made this kind of gigs possible, he was the founder of this combo.
the story was: axel zwingenberger made a television broadcasting about boogie woogie in great britain, and his backmusicians have been dave green and charlie watts.
many years later ben waters saw this film and he diceded to bring this group together again, and to play some gigs.
our personally highpoint was of course to get a signature on our record, to see charlie just 2-3 metres distance for 2,5 hours and to meet our austrian stones fellows, like engelbert and manuela, daniel,isabella and susanne again.
thanks to charlie,axel,ben and dave for such a pleasant night and we`re looking forward to see them on friday again.
christmas is still on.....
robert and claudia
