The names Shaz and I live in Nottingham,UK ( sadly)
Ive been into Ultravox since the very early days and now the daughter ( who is 19 ) is getting into them in a big way
Ive seen em lots of times and been backstage etc a lot of times too
Warren and I keep in touch via email etc,we kind of lost touch a few years ago( theres some earrings he wears in the videos I bought him yay,lol) but thankfully are back to emailing now ( thank goodness for the net)
anyway Im an old fart as youve prolly guessed( not too old tho),other music i like is Rammstein,Machine Head,HIM and various stuff like that
The daughter and I came back from being on tour with Rammstein in the UK the other week ( we went on the tour buses to eahc gig etc so if anyone likes em and wants to see pix feel free to ask )
Ive just spent 1800 on a new guitar which is a signature guitar the same as the lead guitarist aka Rich from Ramm plays so yeah Im a pretty sad nutter but hell its a one off thing which Id never be able to do again
fav songs from Ultravox..The Voice and Reap the Wild Wind and just need to update my cd collection with the old Ultravox cd's instead of the vinyl stuff i have ( seeing as my record player bit the dust)

Lol someone got the Engel right as to it being a song by Rammstein that my fav sexy guitarist Richard Kruspe wrote,heh( has anyone seen Richards new RZK guitar? Ive just bought the same one and Im now totally broke! :rolleyes: ,how sad is that)
and... I do like other bands aka Machine Head etc and have tried out Megaherz and an awesome guy also called Der Bote(http://www.der-bote.com/media_de.htm) so if you like Ramm check that out
anyway less waffling from me,glad to see too that someone likes Warren wink ,hes doing fine at the mo and tells me the other day it was 104 degrees where he lives,thats so unfair as its dull and rainy in this dump cussing

by the way everyone Im still trying to hunt those old photos down,still no luck and gettin more annoyed

Olaf

thanks for putting me straight; my pal is big Rammstein fan but i'm not over-familiar with them. I like the song "Amerika" and the sentiments expressed therein. Just cos West is under attack it doesn't mean our lifestyle is perfect or even morally much better than islamists. And rammstein are not bad for a mainstream band? Give 'em a break (hey i don't really care if you're hard on them though mate !).

Olaf, can you desist from the digs at someone-elses musical taste. It may be light-hearted (I hope) but it's now gettng too much. The last thing I want is for you to upset a new member.

Yes, this is really getting out of hand. How many times do I need to tell you, Olaf, to stop badgering people? People are entitled to their own tastes in music. Please respect that. You don't have to "understand" it. Just accept the fact that someone likes a band that you don't. Simple as that. So, enough of the schoolyard behaviour, please!! <img border="0" alt="[Shake head]" title="" src="graemlins/shakehead.gif" />

Engel, please don't suck yourself into other people's antics. You don't want to wind up getting yourself into trouble as well. Best to just ignore it. The last thing we want to do is lose members (especially new ones).

Mrs. X

Hey

i have grown a spine and sense of humour (a real one not pretend). So am not bothered by Olaf's chiding; which is being taken in good part - hopefully how it was intended.

dear "engel" ,

as posted already in some other threads here today , i think that u've understood my BANTERIN' ( NOT_BICKERIN' , dear "mrs. x" !!! :rolleyes: ) much better & took it more light-hearted than some other people here !!! *sigh*

anyway ... it's really NOT my intention to annoy u personally with what i wrote about your favorite band ... & if i nevertheless did so , then i sincerely like to apologize for bein' ( too ) rude in this case , sorry !!! frown

[ ... ]

however ... i like "engel" & i think that she's a nice person , albeit we might completely disagree about "a certain band" , which is okay & DONE by now ... @ least for me !!! smile

btw : should i tell u "a lil' secret" , "engel" !? nervouslaugh
i even LOVED_MADONNA durin' her "like a virgin" period , so if u want to BANTER_ME with somethin' , jus' go ahead & tease me with it now !!! laugh

p. s. @ grant : thanx a lot for UNDERSTANDIN' me , m8 !!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Sonia - any chance you coming to the gig?! Would be nice to see you again! smile

Hiya Shaz!!!

Welcome on board of this crazy ship... you bring a lot of energy and LIFE into here! As you may have read, we have just (4 weeks ago) lost a dear one in here, who brought a similar handful of vitality and kindness into this forum. A lot of us miss him.

Thanks for those lovely pics! I had no idea Rammstein are still as big!!

Love the Dusk Till Dawn videoclip (hehe). My favourite song of theirs is still "Du riechst so gut" (you smell so good) - excellent, intense, sensual, animal, strong, danceable. Just great. It used to be on heavy rotation in Summer 1998, and everytime it was on (a few times a day, obviously), I couldn't take my eyes off the screen... in spite of the stress... <img border="0" alt="[Suave]" title="" src="graemlins/suave.gif" />

You must be very proud of your daughter! Wish I had one... wink

Love
LAVA <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />
