It could have happen, or not. This reminds me the chapter with the couple on train when they returned from first italian concert and then they had them again from Brussels to London :twisted: The "honeymoon from hell with that band from Leeds" :lol:
Though in that case he was with Gary Marx the "terror duo" :roll: :bat:

Just got around to watch the vids and damn, that really feels like Crystal Palace all over again. Really no offense to Ingo, MrBlonde and all our other video heroes, but this was the best stuff from 2022 I've seen so far. It's boomy and full of feedback but hey, can they do a festival stage. Von in a really really good mood, very strong voice, even going at the higher notes again, no hiss, no mumble, delays in the right places, Ben and Dylan immaculate as always... This sounds and feels like an act not to be missed. I'm a bit more in love than usually. Wish there was more footage. Hach.

tl;dr: What a difference a cigarette can make.
Clearly now the past mistakes
The giant steps we had to take
The path that ever promise made to
Die in dream dissolve and fade

Aye me and Charlie came to the same conclusion at the same time whilst watching him belt out Temple without running out of breath or energy :notworthy:
There is increasing evidence to suggest that Chris may have been being sarcastic.

Yeah, there's something about seeing them totally dominate a festival stage. The sound system just seems to work for them (at least on those clips from Sofia). You can kinda get why for years he was insisting they were a 'major label' band - things obviously didn't go that way for them, but the sound of the modern version of the Sisters really seems to suit big venues. Shame we normally only get to see them in smaller places.

I was excited to see him got on the same flight as me but not for long. He was removed from the plane on landing, partly for causing trouble, and partly I guess for his own safety, after he drunkenly abused and threatened a female passenger and insulted a group of men much bigger than him. Embarrassing and I wont see them anymore
You may not be aware just where you are, but you ought to be aware that such falsehoods as what you write here are right under the eyes of the band and the man himself.
You better think twice before you act up like that on Heartland. Somebody from 2000 Hamburg 4 might get very angry at you. You don´t want that. Believe me.

Is this a threat? I know at least two people were filming the scene, I am surprised it hasn’t got to YouTube yet. I am sure it will

That bit was embarrassing, but the abusive and threatening behaviour to a woman is why I will never be able to see him in the same light
