Another short trip to LA…. This time, both of the boys were in our van today and Emma Jones. (She and I never wanted Rachel there). Miss Pope joined Rachel.
We heard on the After show last night that the boys were staying at the same hotel as we did. NICE! We didn’t see them though. Anyway… time to go to LA…
We arrived pretty early…. Rachel dropped Emma off and went to her own hotel/motel/hostel. We were staying in the Wilshire Plaza hotel on Wilshire Boulevard. We checked in. The guy from the reception lied to the ladies. He told them that they had the best room with the best view. They were looking at Downtown LA. I believe that Ozzy & I had a better room. We had a view at the Hollywood Hills.
Ozzy & I took the train from Bloemendaal to the Airport. We arrived in America on October 10th flight was a nightmare. The plane left Amsterdam 1 hour late, so from the 3 hours that we had to transfer in Washington we had 2 hours left.
On Twitter I asked Mike what to do: Rock Werchter or Newquay? Rock werchter was on July 3rd. Wireless was on July the 4th. I already booked everything for Wireless. Might have been a struggle to get from Belgium to England in time for both festivals but I would have tried, but Mike’s answer on Twitter made me change my mind.
“Kendal is calling me”, Mike tweeted, it called us as well. We’re going to Kendal Calling festival.
The night before the gig Laura, Ozzy & I took the train from Bloemendaal (train stop is only 3 minutes walk from my villa) to the airport. We flew to Liverpool, John Lennon Airport. We stayed in Holiday Inn Express hotel there, as we arrived very late. We rented a car last night.
