A concert review by Karsten Wagner:
We arrive in the small
town Gehrden near Hannover very early. In the hotel
Katrin and I meet the bands who had performed here
yesterday, including Suzi Quatro and Showaddywaddy.
While the other bands leave the hotel, we wait for
SAILOR. A short time later some other SAILOR-fans join
us: Sabine and her daughter Cilia, Marina and her
family (Michael and Michaela).
SAILOR arrive at the hotel one hour later. We show the
new SAILOR "greatest hits" CD that was released
by Sony a few weeks ago. Georg and Phil both decide to
buy one of those CDs from us because they did not know
anything about the release of this compilation which also
includes songs from the 1980 "Dressed For
Georg has very much luggage, so that I help him to bring
the guitar and all his other bags into the hotel.
Later Katrin and myself drive to the festival tent where
the Oldie night is going to take place by following the
guy with the Nickelodeon-car.
Now it is time for the soundcheck. The SAILOR guys are
very hungry and don't have any time to eat, so that the
fans Cilia and Michaela have to feed Grant with their
pizza (see photo on the left).
We stand in the first row together with all the other
SAILOR fans: Norbert, Christel, Inka, Claudia, Marina,
Michael, Michaela, Manuela, Magret, Sabine, Cilia and
Tobias... SAILORs show is absolutely great, especially
their special perfect version of "Traffic Jam"
and "Two Ladies On The Corner" with Henry on a
small extra keyboard, Phil with a bass-guitar and Grant
on a new drum-construction developed by Georg.
Grant's wife Michelle is there too. She is so kind to
record a special video for Katrin and me (absolutely
After the concert some funny things happen:
The cook of the hotel asks me for an autograph because he
thinks I am Georg Kajanus.
Georg and his girl-friend Barbie ask me: "Where did
you buy your new captains-cap?" I tell them that I
discovered it at a second-hand market in our hometown
