Spring has sprung… All aboard for the European Tour!
It's times like these that I wish I spoke some foreign languages… The Eric Sardinas Spring 2004 European Tour kicks off on Thursday (Giovedì 18 Marzo) in Alcamo, Italy with the Blues in Action festival; and winds up in Bochum, Germany on Wednesday, April 7th (Mittwoch April 7) at Matrix. Here are those tour dates:
… Now for the Call to Arms to all of you hardcore European Sardinas fans:
As you know, your American counterparts did a splendid job of documenting Eric Sardinas' recent tour of The States. Since the band is heading into your territory, we fans across-the-pond need you to do the same in the coming weeks.
Please email me and let me know what shows you hope to attend, and what goodies you plan to get while there for show-and-tell here on RP: live pictures, concert reviews, Money Shots, autographs, Eric-phernalia, etc.
I'll be watching my Inbox… Fill 'er up!
Drum! was on-hand for the Winter NAMM convention, and quizzed well-known drummers present regarding their influences, for the magazine's monthly "P.O.V." feature. Our own Mike Dupke is among the respondents. Click HERE to read his responses, and see the snapshot taken by drum! [SIDEBAR: This same issue's pick for "Vibe: Drummers Making a Difference" is Ed Graham of The Darkness (Oh, hell yeah!), so when you pick up the new issue, you'll be getting two rock gods for the price of one!]

Don't you know I just wanna fly all night?
from PAOLO >> milan, march 20
Davvero brava… bel sito… sei pure gnocca…
compliment's really great funny and pretty site… pretty like u…
I wish to see Mr. Sardinas… in milan saturday night… and I know he do the best blues show…
I read that u like darkness… i see they live one month ago… really great show…
Saluti, Paolo, and thank you for the kind compliments on my site (and me, you sweet-talker, you)!
So, you are going to see Eric Sardinas at The Giants of Guitar event Saturday at Blues House in Milan? I know you will have a fabulous time... The band puts on a not-to-be-missed live show! I do hope that you get some good stuff at the concert, and I will be ever-so-grateful if you choose to share it with other ES fans (myself included) on RP.
Yes, you are right on-target, I adore The Darkness! You are so lucky to have already seen them perform live. They did play a few dates here in The States, but long before I ever heard of them. (I didn't find out about them until November of last year.) Their sold-out U.S. Tour starts later this month, but I have to wait until mid-April to see them for the first time (if I can get my mitts on some tickets, that is!). They've saved the best -- Southern California and me, LOL -- for last.
… God, I can't wait! I have to see this band live! It is a musical imperative!
As for Jet, I found out about them the same night that I learned of The Darkness. I like them, too… but The Darkness are in a class all by themselves. There's no one like them, and they are definitely my favorite new band -- hands (and panties… Bwahaha!) down.
Anyway, thank you for writing me, and I look forward to hearing all about your exploits on Saturday night!
I can't wait to see Eric in April! I plan to go to two shows: In Hannover on the third and in Hamburg on the sixth of April. That will be the sixth/seventh time that I see Eric but I'm still excited like a little child!
Loved this email… Loved it, loved it, LOVED IT! And I'm grooving on your reminiscences of last year's show like a big dog!
I can't wait to see all your goodies from Hannover and Hamburg! Thanks, Maike!
Keep in touch!!!
