Have you got time????? .... well...... after a show in the Eastern Block some Goth girls had been stood outside the dressing room for HOURS not speaking.

The goth girls followed us and got into an old Skoda car and tailed the tour bus.... All of us were in the back window looking out as the bus driver tried to lose them by driving over the central meridian...... however they followed us over and in the most rediculous way crashed into a car coming the other way..... the funny part is .... Geoff Nicholls immediately had the comic brilliance to sing the tune to 'War Pigs' but replaced the words with .. (and you have to sing it where the words "generals gather in their masses" are) ...replace with ..... "Witches drive a skoda CRASHES!!!!!" as we waved them goodbye and left them alive but disgruntled in the middle of the road. ......... But they STILL found the hotel..!!!!

18. WHAT'S YOUR PLANS FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS
Change the way the music industry works!!!!! Music has become a worthless art these days. Its time we as artists fought back..... Stop giving music away for free!!!! Its not helping... once the people that like it have it .. there is no one else to sell it to!!... Stop WORKING for Free Its not helping... once you do it the next time is EXPECTED. We are the first person in the chain that creates the work ... but we are the last person in the chain to get paid.....!!! We are the Same person!!! ... in between are all those that live off it. That must change. Apart from the class A supergroups there are FEW that can actually earn from it these days. The public AND the artist have to realise MUSIC IS NOT FOR FREE!!!!
