So I just got off the phone with a relative visiting Los Angeles, and I ask, where have they gone…”We’ve been to Venice Beach, Santa Monica, yada yada, and Disneyland in Anaheim. We’ve been very busy, tomorrow we head to San Diego where we will be able to relax a bit more.” I replied, “Awesome…what about the Sunset Strip, how did you like that?” I remember when I went to California for my first time…I had a local take me to see the sites, and when I brought up that I wanted to go to the strip, she said…’there’s not really much there, but I get it, we can make a stop there so you can check it out.’ I get it many locals will say that it’s a dirty waste of time. Not me, I thought, I was on a pilgrimage and if I did not experience anything other than “The Strip” that would be fine. I also get that it’s very touristy…I did not care it was the 1980’s and I had to go. So anyway my relative on the phone today  says, they did not go to 346462hjSunset, and they would not have a chance. It was like a knife in my chest…WHATTTTT!!! At least do a drive through, WTF! So much amazing history but I guess it’s not to be. I know some of you are saying F Sunset, dirty waste of time…WRONG!

All I could think of to myself is that some day they will regret not going to the strip, just to see The Rainbow, The Whiskey, and The Troubabour. It reminded me of my first trip to Continental Europe with my Grand Parents when they took us on the “safety tour” in the 80’s when I was young, God love em, but I remembered that they tried to censor our trip. I grew up in Iceland so debauchery was not new to me, but the grandparents were a bit naive and did not get that we, the young ones already experienced the “adult stuff”. My uncle, aunt, and cousins lived near Nijmegen, Holland. It was pretty awesome experiencing it like a local…riding the bike paths in and out of the city and the 10 miles from Beuningen to Arnhem. We had Fritz Met, fries Old Skool 377 Holland - CopyEditand mayonnaise, had to explain what the American word “Cool” to a local (It did not mean cold), and were hit with major porn next to the Disney Movies at the “Video Ring” while renting VHS tapes. As you know women’s breasts on TV, on the front page of the newspaper, and at the beach is normal in Europe.

We ate horse meat burgers (salty strange), canned hot dogs, and dairy products like eggs / butter / and unpasteurized fresh milk not refrigerated. Actually reminded me of Iceland, not the same, but eating strange foods that is. Remember there was no Anthony Bourdain or Andrew Zimmern on TV then and wandering gastronomy was not popular with Americans…still is not, but people “get” foi gras now even if they don’t want to eat it themselves.  Now I know better to go for the Pig Cheek and Tuna Collar…first! Thank you Mr. Bourdain.

I also went to a Dutch school with my cousin and a friend of his, and all the students were asking me all kinds of questions about celebrities (blech!) and MTV (remember it was the 80’s). It wasn’t all bad, in fact I had a great time in English class. Everyone in Holland had English class in school, what was really cool was when I listened to the kids speaking English (Very fluent by the way), I realized they were learning British English. When they asked me to read a passage in their class book everyone seemed amazed and were stunned that I did not have an Icelandic accent. American English I found out that day was quite different from UK English.

Anyway I did not accept the idea of a censored Europe, no matter what they did (Much more on that later in this piece, see the plane ride home)…I spent my free days to do whatever I wanted, on my own wisely. I knew what I was looking for and I was going to take advantage of it, no matter what anyone said. We drove to Paris and I remember my Grandparents rushing us by the nude statues…very silly indeed, could not be avoided in The Louvre. Also all the sex shops near the Moulin Rouge was awkward for them…lol. We also went to East Germany, this was before the wall came down, and it was quite sad. Far from the free East Berlin Berghain / Panoramabar lawlessness I would visit several years ago, totally not like I remembered in a great way. We further went to Antwerp Belgium, Amsterdam NL (All Over NL), Berlin DE, Luxembourg, and Zurich Switzerland.  It was a very fun trip. 346346hg

I know now days seeing police dogs and Machine guns at airports is pretty common, but back then it was not.  You see we planned our trip months ahead and found ourselves in Holland with military fighter jets doing mission test runs above the house. We turned on the radio and in Dutch, they were saying America was on the brink of w*ar after blo*wing up one  of K*had*afi’s homes, kil*ling his s*on. It was pretty scary for a while we did not know what was going to happen day to day. Would we be taking our scheduled flight a few weeks later from Brussels to the US. We thought about leaving early, thankfully we did not as everything seemed to settle down when it was time to leave.

So as I said I was not going to allow a censored tour of europe, I was a young kid but had been around the block a few times. So I was worried about customs searching my bags especially with all I had acquired on my trip…unknowingly by my Grandparents and with the heightened security. My collectables in my luggage were; several Cuban Cigars, a bottle of cheap French Drinking Wine that all the locals in Paris drank at lunchtime with their bread and fromage, 1 bottle of Russian Potato Vodka, 1 bottle of REAL Czechoslovakian Absinthe, 1 Switchblade, 1 pen…woman with disappearing dress, 1 pack of Po*rn Star Playing Cards, and there was more but you get the idea. I was not even a teen yet and I was a walking ball of debauchery to go, just add water. It was that Heavy Metal music, it was a bad influence on me…I’ll blame it on that. K.

So we get to the airport in Brussels and began to put our luggage on the conveyor to the x-ray. As it went through I could have pissed myself. Breathe! As soon as my bag came through I picked it up and hustled it away about 30 feet to the bottom of the escalators. I grabbed another bag of my family’s as well. Then all of a sudden there was a commotion behind the scanner and two airport officials come out from behind and start pulling my Grandmother’s bag apart, obviously looking for something. They found nothing as my bag was safely away. Ah to be young again, man was I a handful. That was very close…very very close! Imagine them unpacking my suitcase full of treats right in front of my stunned Grandparents?!?! Anyway I passed through customs and on arrival in the US scuttled without even a search or declaration form in the US. As I walked by inspectors they paid me no attention as I tried to steady my bag, the bottles had come unwrapped and were now clinking. I almost shat myself…steady hand!

More to come about my trips to Continental Europe in the future, time to get back to music, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Forward a few years…Now it was the late 80’s, but I had travelled to LA in 83, 85, 88 and 89 and I did not establish my connections in the music industry until the middle of 1989. I thought to myself, I had missed out on Hendrix and the 60’s scene, as well as the Punk Movement in the 70’s (single digits, although I saw the 44633363mjRamones in 83 but that does not count, right, as I missed the movement). So I had to go to LA for the 80’s Glam Metal Scene…the Sunset strip was insane. The freaks were out and dressed to kill, it was more than you would imagine, the smell of Aqua Net and Phunky Kush was overwhelming. I got to see almost all of the LA Metal bands as there were shows every night of the week. It was a pretty carefree time as I was traveling back and forth between the UK, Boston, New York City, Los Angeles, and Seattle quite often. There were also many side trips to Vegas and Frisco as well. In the future I would find myself living between the UK, Reykjavik, Boston, San Diego, and San Francisco between tours in the 90’s. What made it even more amazing was that I was able to physically see the major turn in the music industry from LA Glam to The Seattle Sound.

When I look back on it, it was a seismic shift but as I just liked loud music I transitioned easily from Motley Crue and Ratt to Alice In Chains and Nirvana. I did not give a fuck about the politics and I got along with almost anybody, so at the time I did not notice the music was too different, of course it was different, but more importantly I could feel that I was part of something very unique and a part of history. What made everything more confusing was that Guns N’ Roses, Janes Addiction, and The Red Hot Chilli Pepper’s holding it up for LA blurring the Alternative lines. Megadeth, Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer (The Big Four) where holding things up for thrash in the US and even bigger in Europe and South America. I would just the same listen to LA Guns, Mudhoney, or Megadeth (just as I do today)…where I really noticed the transition was when I went back home to work in the clubs in the 90’s.  All the work shifted from LA to Seattle for sure but back home Glam Metal was out and “Grunge” (hate that term) was in at some point. I didn’t get the memo that Metal was out and Seattle was in. I just went with the flow. The difference at home was the radio had stopped playing 80’s metal and full rotation was set on Seattle, it was really strange. Instead of taking my flights to LAX, I was now heading for SEATAC. That’s just the way it was. Not Enough time to write about the Raves and The Grateful Dead, Old Skool Rap Shows ( Notorious BIG, Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Warren G, NWA, Public Enemy, Wu Tang Clan, KRS 1, Dr. Dre, etc.) that’s for other articles…I was going nonstop for sure!

My experiences during these times are just beginning to be published, every day still I remember a new adventure and make note to be sure I remember to write about it here. “Bastard Saint” the Series has turned into something bigger. A book about all my experiences set to a bizarre ethereal netherworld. Based on a true story…there is so much to it, I will be posting excerpts from it in the New Year of 2015. Sorry, much later than I had expected because I want to give everybody a taste of how the book is coming along and the characters within, without giving away everything in a few posts. However I will probably self publish and give it away for free. So I look to give everyone here pieces to wet the tongue, while leaving people wanting to see development and progress with the full text.

So in closing here I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Holidays! Have a drink and a toke on me…I’ll be sticking with my coffee, Ettan, and Skruf Xtra Stark with a little Thunder Ultra Raspberry / Thunder Frosted, Oden’s Kanel, Gotlandskt Julesnus to keep it real for the season! Real Swedish Imported Snus Taxes Paid(Med Smak Av Jul !)….not that American SNUS Shit!

Time for another Doc Photo Post but today is for a different reason. I want to welcome all my new Hard Rock and Metal Followers from Twitter with a bang. As I said before we have so much amazing history to show in photos. This post is only another sampling of the 1000′s of amazing and rare photos I have from the Doctor which he has bestowed upon us! If you see a photo you know already, the doctor had his hands involved in it or at least through his friendship with the great Ross Halfin and other of our generations greatest music photographers. It’s going to take me years to post the best and I’m honored to do here. One day Doc will be known more for his art than his real job. So here I am to publicly post and archive his Art of Photography.

I just recently posted a Doc post, and normally I would not do another so close but since it’s a holiday weekend and people are really digging them…so it goes! My next post will be on my experience with Nirvana…and how I witnessed Punk go mainstream in a two day period. Stay tuned!

So while Doc is working Knebworth Sonisphere with “The Monster”, as a matter of fact Metallica is taking the stage there right now as we speak, and while the show is going on as he always has, he can be found taking all the photos yet to come. As we like to say “All my Best to All of You! Be Safe, because Careful is Too Freak’in Late! Oi Oi Doc!
Respect Bro!

To join the fun also follow me on Twitter if you want and I’ll follow you as well.

Doc Keyaza Photographer…Doc’s Shots #13! [Sample Gallery Post]

Today Up On Christmachine Audio Reference Music Server :

Time for another Doc Photo Post. As I said before we have so much amazing history to show in photos. This post is only another sampling of the 1000’s of amazing and rare photos I have from the Doctor which he has bestowed upon us! If you see a photo you know already, the doctor had his hands involved in it or at least through his friendship with the great Ross Halfin and other of our generations greatest music photographers. The thing about Doc is that he’s not the the type to say hey that’s my photo, I want credit, to boast an ego. He just let’s the photo circulate and no one knows he took it. The picture speaks for itself. So here I am to publicly post and archive his Art…so people know where these photos are coming from.

So while Doc is on tour right now in on the festival circuit in Europe with “The Monster” Metallica, we can still celebrate his photos and I can thank him here as he hangs from the rafters rigging thousands of pounds of gear to the sky. While the show is going on as he always has, he can be found taking all the photos yet to come. Oi Oi Doc! Respect Bro!

The Greatest Moments in Rock and Roll History Series #5 – Bo*b D*ylan – D*ylan Goes Electric @ Newport Folk Festival …[Text~Vidz]…

Just one editorial note The Greatest Moments in Rock and Roll History Series, even though numbered is not in any particular order. I would not try to rank such greatness…they all reach the top. 8]

This is what I consider a true moment and it’s not just for rock…if you listen to music this has affected and influenced you and everyone else unknowingly for 50 years (that’s right 5 decades). At the time Dylan was playing the Newport Folk Festival nearly every year in the early 60’s. My parents where there in 65′ when Bob went electric and they also serve as a first hand account.

My mum remembers vividly that people were peeing everywhere in the open…my pops has a much better remembrance of the actual performance. He told me that it was different from the mega concerts we have today. He said when Dylan came on the stage everyone thrust towards the stage and he emphasizes that this kind of thing was very new if not unheard of. The grassroots folk movement at the time was very ideological and many tended to think of Dylan and Baez as carriers of the message of these ideologies. It was also considered if you played an electric guitar at that time that you were “selling out” as part of the corporate establishment. Think about how every generation views selling out. Today kids think that just means that there are no more tickets or downloads left, not an ideology.

So anyway Dylan did not think of himself as being the bearer of the torch for the movement, he was doing anything that he thought felt right at the time for music and the integrity of the art. It just so happened that his lyrics were taken way out of context by the masses at the time. My mom and pops said that when Dylan came out and played “Maggie’s Farm” with an electric guitar…they did not notice large amounts of people booing that they talk about as legend. Pops said they’re was some booing but not a lot…maybe up front, and he continued by saying that it was only after the show that everyone began to re-visit the set and put it in the context of being controversial.

So with that said, it is known as the lynchpin in history when Dylan went electric that everyone looked at live performances in new evolutionary ways. If Dylan it did then….! Think about it, the first counter culture festival was in 1967 at Monterey where the electric culture blew up. Hendrix and The who scared the crap out of everybody with their performances and Dylan had broke the mold a few years earlier at Newport.

So here I have two videos…one the remembrances of two people involved in the concert production talking about how the Dylan gig went down…also there is in that short video the full performance of “Maggie’s Farm” when Dylan walked out on stage with the Butterfield Blues Band and thus the controversy. So this may be the biggest moment in rock history because it came before everything else except Elvis’ pelvis. I think Dylan may have topped Elvis in my opinion with this one, even though he may not have cared or realized it would even be controversial. The second video is the near complete performances of Dylan from 1963 to 1965. I post this video so you can see all of this into context yourself.

I know what people are thinking “roll eyes”, what about The Beatles Invasion and and Elvis. Keep this in mind Elvis at that time was using an acoustic onstage. Second people who were there at the time, considered the Beatles a rebellious corporate “Boy Band” (crazy I know), that was the thinking it was such new territory. Bob was a man of the people and many those people saw it as a betrayal to play electric. When he did that the common man…that is any person, not just anyone with musical talent could get up anywhere and play electric. Bob, such genius and foresight, came out and finished the set with Johnny Cash’s acoustic guitar (Because he only had an electric), closing with “It’s All Over Now Baby Blue”.

It was the beginning of seeing the common man accepted as a vehicle for live electric, where before that it was considered part of either the corporate shill or the blight of the black delta blues musicians. The devils work to some. Racial prejudices were abound in society then, and I’m not talking about at Newport (These were social norms). My parents brought me up to have the same respect for all people…no matter what their race or sexuality. That was the norm in the folk grassroots movement. So I don’t want people to think Newport was a race thing, it was about Bob taking everyone on a trip to Mars when they had not signed up for that.
