Anyone here been to Copenhagen
My son played music last night in Stockholm, Sweden and tonight he is playing in Copenhagen. He said the cities are very clean. It was snowing in Stockholm. He sent a picture of a street in Stockholm and It was spotless. That was before it was snow covered. He plays a lot in California cities and I think he was surprised at how clean the cities are in Sweden. He has produced albums for a Swedish band and they came to see him last night.
Not since 1966. However, we are planning a trip to Copenhagen soon. I loved that city! Will he be playing in Tivoli Gardens?
Yes. Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland. Generally predisposed to order and an aversion to litter. And there used to be even less litter.

He is using a Moollon bass and is supported by a lot of Ampeg equipment. Also uses an upright bass. He also plays other instruments and one one album he recorded with six different instruments. Just before he left the states he put bass tracks on a Ringo star album.
Such a great friend you have in your son, Lex Jr, Lex. Thank you for keeping all of us abreast of his progress along the way. Wow..... I'm so humbled. What a great Father we all have....
Cool stuff. I always wanted to jam in a band : )
You must be very proud Lex, to have a Son with such World-renowned talent.
Very cool, indeed!
Lex...we sure live the good life virtually through our kids!
Hope he plays out in Jackson after Cherie and I relocate.
I was there in the mid- nineties at the end of a Baltic cruise. We were there for less than a day before we flew to London and then to SFO.
So I can’t say we saw much of the city
I hope that band is ABBA. I miss them. And that Anni-Frid was like a parking ticket when she was younger. Had “fine” written all over her.
They are in Berlin Germany tonight and tomorrow night.
music is truly a gift from God. I am in total awe of anyone who can make real music come out of an instrument. The good ones make it seem so effortless. I can do it a little.....but it comes very hard to me.
It's interesting that and how tonal vibrations can sooth the soul and also make it angry.....
Berlin...yes, I spent a lot of time there...before the Wall came down.
That City never sleeps!
Cologne Cathedral. @ Cologne, Germany Have any of you guys seen this.
Wow! That is incredible! Both your son’s accomplishments and the photos!
Never spent any time in Europe but may need to plan a trip. Wonder if I could work it out to squeeze in some fishing or bow hunting...
We were there 2 years ago, on a cruise. stayed in Copenhagen for 3 days before and after the cruise, before hitting Amsterdam for a few days. Copenhagen is extremely clean. People walk and use bikes most of the time. Lots of youth in the big cities. public transit is great to get anywhere in town or out. Cars around but not used much except to travel outside of town where the trains don't go. Very clean, people are a little stuck up, because we were just trash from the US
Love the Scandinavian countries, especially Norway. Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm are beautiful, clean cities. Most of my time there has been on farms and in the countryside. Hard working, salt of the earth people everywhere we went. All very interested in life in the US. Also met a lot of hunters. Got to ski Lillehammer, which was a hoot. There was pig barn on the side of the mountain near Lillehammer. That wouldn't happen at Aspen!
They are playing today at Groningen, Netherlands. Some kind of an American music festival. Evidently they celebrate Halloween.
Day eight is in Brussels, Belgium.
DL, it's too expensive, Long Horn is better and cheaper.
Playing tomorrow night in Dublin. Every place I see the streets are clean.
What a tour. Playing in the UK tonight. Leeds.
