hey kristian:

have you ever seen bonamassa live? when i spoke to him after the last
cleveland show, he said he was going to miss the crossroads show (he was
invited) because he would be touring europe at the time. hopefully, he will
be swinging by denmark if you havent already had a chance to see him
