Rodney Mullen – a legend in every way

I had the opportunity to meet Rodney Mullen in San Fransisco. The man laid the foundation to modern street skating, back in the 70s.

Rodney is the most humble and kind person I have ever met! If you look up “nice person” in a dictionary there ought to be a picture of him next to it.

Sweden Rock Festival 2023

So…all the major bands like Iron Maiden, Deep Purple and Motley Crue were on a sliding scale ranging from boring (Maiden) to awful (Motley). The best bands were smaller bands from Sweden.

Abramis Brama delivered their groovy prog rock with gusto. The band was tight as fuck and they seemed genuinely happy to be on stage.

Next band and ultimately the best was Ström. Think a young AC/DC who sings in Swedish. Absolutely amazing! We cried tears of happiness after the gig – I shit you not!

And also a shout out to Napalm Death who seemed to play as their very lives depended on it. Barney was just frantic!

And we did a whole lot of partying too…
