This picture is one of my all time favourit shots of me. It was if i remember correctly 2009 on the big tour over europe together with Kreator, Caliban and Emergency Gate.
On that run we had a session guitarplayer who was replacing another session guitarplayer (don`t think about it, long story), and this dude had a very bad first day with us. Well, probably the whole rest of the tour wasn`t that exiting anymore after his first night. I can`t remember which place or country we were playing but the story started like every night on tour when everything is still a big adventure and social rules where only a dark little place in mind which easily could be forgotten with alcohol and other substances around. So i remember i was drunk. Next thing i heard was Mario from Emergency Gate who opened up the little curtain of my bed, smiled and asked me „Kay do you have warm feet?“. My brain wasn`t working like it should because my brain was fighting with all sorts of alcohol so it made that very tricky. But i had very warm and wet feet so i jumped out of the bed and realized that our session was drunk and sleepwalking at the same time, no big deal, as very curious stuff happened during tours back then, but, this dude just pissed in my bed, while i was in there!
So i freaked out and gave him hell. I do not remember how it ended in that particular night but the rest of the tour he was very scared when i walked by. Im not a person who can be mad for a very long time so for me it was done next day. But at the end of the tour, and the tour was long, Mario told me that he was telling the drunken sleepwalking freestyle piss guy in that night after my freak out that i was 8 years in jail for murder. So i knew why his fear was real and this days must have been pure horror for him. Of course i did not murder anybody.
Thats why i never ever was sleeping in the under bed, well one time i did and then the bus catched fire but thats another story and another tour.
