Amazing Intimate Friendly Professional
Posted on February 12, 2008fresh from the email, after Type O Negative's London show...
"Hi, I'm sorry if you've had about a million e-mails from fans saying how well we think the new T.O.N album and tour is going, but I really felt that I had to e-mail to say that I was at the London Astoria gig last Friday and it was amazing. I ended up being shoved to the back by a group of "fans" who were slating T.O.N at the beginning, so I couldn't see a lot, but after a couple of songs their slating stopped. Apart from those guys, I had an excellent time. The Astoria's kind of small so it was quite an "intimate" gig where the band came across really friendly towards their fans and really didn't seem like these big rock stars who distance themselves from fans. Pete Steele stopped mid-song to re-tune his bass, which I thought was nice to see as I have seen other bands who didn't care whether they were in tune or not, they had already been paid, so it didn't matter. It was great to see that the band appreciated that we had paid to see them play so they had to get it right. Musically they were very tight and probably the most professional band I have seen, without the arrogance that usually goes with that.
I hope the rest of the tour and album sales continues to go well for them, and that we see them in the U.K. again very soon.
Thanks for such a great show.
Thanks for the mail Kelly. Glad you had a good time.. although to be fair, it was Type O Negative, so how could you not?!..."
