Here we all are waiting to board the flight - Will and Dave are still on vacation and so we were seven: Hester, Leisa, Jonty, Ben, Richie, Ewan and me. Dreieich is quite close to Frankfurt so no long bus journey to the gig
I notice that Lufthansa now has new toilets on their airbuses (both on the starboard side - similar to Norwegian Airlines) they are even more cramped but still workable. I walked back down the aisle to with my top hat to film another character (a bank chairman) - all these film bits will last a couple of seconds and so far I've made six flights with filming sessions on them.
"Gentlemen, lets set a trap........"
Arriving at Frankfurt
This is the Underpants Hotel - despite this nodescript corridor - its a comfortable hotel.
Some views of the old castle that we play in
Lovely view of the high street
There was a bride and groom having their pictures taken in the grounds - like I said - Lovely!
The promoters had thoughtfully rigged up two parasols, to keep the sun off the band while we soundchecked - this worked well for everyone except me!
The gig was good and it was fun to hook up with Verena (sound engineer) again and to catch up with long time friends Doris and Klaus and Eva, who had come all the way from Austria with her ususal bag of goodies - Thanks again Eva!
Signing after the show
The only problem was that I was so relaxed that i filmed with the eyepatch on the wrong eye - meh, continuity never was my strong point.
