It’s been a great two weeks here in Latin/South America. Every show has been at least great. Some greater and so far Chile was the greatest. One show left in Bogota tomorrow and then we head home for a few weeks off until the Rock On The Range show May 20.
After that it’s 2 weeks in Europe playing festivals, a few headline shows and also headlining the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards show in London, June 11. The day before that we play Download. Besides being excited about our show that day and how crazy I think it’s going to be, I am also excited to see Refused. I’ve been waiting 14 years to see them, never thinking I would. I can hardly contain myself. And then of course there’s Black Sabbath. Rumor has it this will be the only actual Sabbath show. I don’t care about rumor, I just want Tony Iommi to kick his cancer in the ass and get back to doing what he does best. Can’t wait.
Over the last month and a half I’ve been lucky to have had coffee in Indonesia, Brazil and Columbia. If you follow me online at all you know I’m a bit of a coffee fan. I’ve sampled some of the best beans in the world recently, had some great espressos, drips, siphons, presses everywhere and I’ve come to the conclusion that the person making your coffee has as much to do with the final result as the bean does. I had four cups of the same Luwak in Jakarta and there was no consistency. The second cup I had was the best of the four and I think the best I’ve ever had. The other three were good but not memorable at all. I had an espresso in Santiago yesterday at our hotel that rivaled anything I’ve had in Italy. The guy pulling it knew what he was doing. Same today, there’s a serious coffee bar in our hotel and the guy working it is a pro. He did the Columbian beans justice. Anyway, I’m writing this all jacked up on three cups so there may not be a point to any of it.
Coffee es muy bueno.
I’ve attached a bunch of pics of the last two weeks. Have fun checking out the worst travelogue ever.
Until next time.
