I’m soo beat.. My head feels like concrete! After a 12 hour studio session with my boy Claes Hedman in his superb Area 7.1, it is nice with a good night sleep. I got a production / mixing job on very short notice yesterday, with a deadline on monday. So it has been a chaotic day, but insanely fun!!
Tomorrow it is back in the studio at 11:00. Claes is picking me up! So time for some sleep now..
Haha I noticed I like to start my blog posts with “Woow”. Well, what a night..
I just came home from a jam session with my boys Simon & Claes! We brought all of our gear to Claes place. We have been talking about jamming for a year I think. And we finally did it! Simon is playing his new Fender guitar, it is beautiful and he is really good! Claes have been playing the drums since he was a teenager and a few years back he bought a new drum set from 2 Box, but he didn’t only buy one, he bought.. TWO!! It looks like a freakin’ monster!
I brought my Juno-G, my laptop, my Apogee Duet, a pedal and a ton of cables. Claes has two keyboards at home, and I used one of them too.
On our way home, the car just died in the middle lane ON a bridge! Can you believe it?! Claes tried desperately to check that everything was ok. But he didn’t find anything.. So he called his brother Mats, who actually is a car salesman (he knows a lot about cars). So Mats and his wife decided to help us out.
When they arrived (this is the funny part) Claes gave the car keys to his brother. Mats takes a look, sits down, turns the key.. and IT STARTS!!! Just like that!?!? Both me, Simon and Mats wife couldn’t stop laughing!! We couldn’t believe it.. These things do happen a few times in your life. This is already a classic memory.
I want to thank the Hedman family for helping us out, with the car trouble. And a big thanks to Simon and Claes for an awesome jam session! Let’s do it again very soon!
