Well its been 10 days now since we landed in Europe. I was excited to return here and do an actual tour this time around! The tour has been great thus far… minus a few bumps on the road here and there. Luckily everything has been sorted out and we seem to be back in full throttle for the next few weeks. not to mention we have a brand new never before used 2011 Mercedes Benz RV last night! We are riding in style now! Apparently there has been many things going on across the globe in the past week or so, watching footage of the tsunami in Japan was something that I will never ever forget. As if the tsunami and quake weren’t bad enough a nuclear power plant basically cracked due to the earthquake and now there is evidence that part of the population has been affected by radiation. My thoughts go out to the Japanese that were affected by these events. I really want to go to Japan one day and perhaps even play a gig there. I can only hope Japan doesn’t become the next Chernobyl.
I love the UK, it reminds me a lot of the states but with a different atmosphere. The shows have been pretty great especially in Leeds and in Glasgow! The Newcastles here taste way better than the ones back home and this is a football coutry! I’ve caught a few games at the pubs every other night. Thank you for the good times UK! Also the people here are nicer and more welcoming. I like how old school everything looks and the scenery is just amazing. It’s just like in the films except it looks cooler once you are actually here. It’s also funny how everyone here seems to care about what they wear and how they look. I’m not going to lie but everyone seems to dress nice and wear nice clothes, especially the girls. Even though everyone dresses EXACTLY the same they look classy compared to what I’m wearing hahahaha.. fuck it I am from AMERIKUH! The only downside is that everything is too expensive. Just to give you an idea… if you think gas is expensive back home, the avg price for a gallon in the UK is about 8 or 9 American Dollars. To be honest, we are all fat asses back home. The food here is also extremely bland compared to what I am used to eat back home, but that is something I could get used to. If you are every here you have to get yourself a proper english breakfast, tea, and Fish and Chips!
Tonight is our first night here in Germany. So far the hospitality has been great and I’m glad to be out of the UK and explore new countries! Thank you to everyone that has come out to see us over the past 9 days, you guys kick ass!
- Beer is good

A special thanks goes out to Martin Lamb for basically getting everything for us set on the right track! He is the coolest guy ever.
Until next time, Cheers!
