The Netherlands, 12th of April 2018
Mike sent me a private message on Instagram on October 21st 2017 saying:
Belgium, August 21st 2014
Terry told me that Mike is coming to Belgium in August. He will come to the festival “Feest in het Park”. Hopefully I can go, as I will be on a holiday from July11th till August 11th. The festival is from August 21st till 24th. SWEET!!! I can go. The exact date is not known yet.
A few weeks later they announced that Mike would play on Friday the 22nd. I asked time off from work. Maybe I didn’t need to, but I didn’t know what time Mike would be on. I got the friday off work. While I was on holiday in South Africa, I contacted Mike and asked him if he could sort Ozzy and me out. Mike replied and told me that he would, but I had to remind him closer to the date. Exactly one week before the festival the timetable got announced. Mike won’t be on until 11pm. I didn’t actually need time off, but it’s nice to actually relax on that day. I also sent another message to Mike to remind him that Ozzy and I would still like to go. Mike replied that he will tell the promotor. The day before the gig I received a reply from Mike that we’re on the door.
England 29th of October 2011
We had our boarding passes already, and only hand luggage as we were only going for 1 night. We got through the passport check to Starbucks in lounge 3 and when we finished our coffee we went through the luggage check. We were boarding at 9.30 and just after 10 the plane left. We arrived at Gatwick at 10 (English time). We got the Gatwick Express to Victoria Station on our way, we passed Battersea, we saw the festival & the Snowboard ramp already.
Belgium 20th of November 2008.
I woke up at 5am I had to go to work. I was in a hurry ‘cos I brought something from work with me, so I had to give it back and after that I needed to go to my other place where I also work.
Worked with Edith that morning. Edith is my friend. At 12.30pm my colleague was there so I could get changed and take the train to Tilburg where my mate Ozzy would pick me up.
When I stopped in Den Bosch, Ozzy called me, and I realized something. OW SHIT!!! I forgot the most important thing… the tickets…. I got Ted’s phone number in Nottingham, but I didn’t want to use it. Fuck, I was scared that there was no other thing to do then phone or text Ted to help us out, not something I wanted to do… I don’t like asking for things… Shit…
