Stockholm

Where: Götgatan, Stockholm

When: Summer of 2006

Me and my father were downtown, Götgatan to be specific, not doing anything special. We stopped at Reference Audio for a while and when we got out of the store we bumped into both Howlin' Pelle Almqvist and Vigilante Carlstroem. I decided I had to ask for their autograph, and when I had picked out a paper and a pen, Vigilante had left. But the master himself was still there so I approached him and asked if I could hace his autograph, which of course I could since he's so nice. :)
Then my father went "What a nice day!" and I agreed. Then Pelle went "Yeah, the weather's great."

Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me at the time.

This was my first and only encounter with Pelle, except for two concerts; the first at Riddarholmen 2004, together with Sahara Hotnights, Broder Daniel and Teddybears STHLM. The second one was now, two days ago at Way Out West, 2007. :)

I WAS SO EXCITED I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT HE WAS GRACIOUS ENOUGH TO SAVE ME FROM DEHYDRATION THAT NIGHT. UNTIL THIS DAY I STILL REMEMBER THAT AS IF IT HAPPENED YESTERDAY. DR. D. THANK U FOR BEING SO AWESOME. TEAR TEAR I LOVE U GUYS FOREVER! THE HIVES ARE THE BEST BAND EVER

Where: Oxford Mississippi

When: 9th May 2007

It was May 2007 and we were driving down from Memphis passing through Oxford when we nearly ran over these couple of Swedish looking dudes on bicycles!... after helping the lads remount, we were invited for a cold beer and corndogs... after many beers, some basketball, deep fried catfish, mac&cheese and just one SMALL 'over-hyped up' lobster corndog... we swapped addresses and vowed to avoid any eye contact for the rest of our lives...
