Drum lesson of the decade
Before jumping head first into a rockstar career, everyone met at the hotel reception and it was decided, that a beer was needed to calm down any unspoken nerves. Not that anybody was nervous or anything, right? After the not existing nerves had been calmed down, it was time for the drum lesson of the decade.
When asked if Mattias had any knowledge of Motörhead, Daniel answered “He told me that he used to be a big fan of Rock, so it was great that someone who knew about Mikkey actually won!” When in return asked Mattias he said “I have listened to Motörhead for a long time, but never seen them live. Me and my childhood friend were rocking to Ace of Spades some time 82, 83 and that was “the bomb”.
During the actual drum lesson Daniel described the atmosphere as very “rocky”. “It was some talk about rock, alcohol, girls and things like that. Mattias and all of us were very excited to see Mikkey and his appearance of course shed some star feeling in the room. Mikkey was relaxed and just like anybody else, so it felt very welcoming as well. Mattias was a bit nervous, that Mikkey would just sit there and not care about anything, since he is that famous and a rock star. Fortunately it was the opposite and he was so passionate and cared so much about Mattias learning something from the lesson.” told Daniel, when asked later.
A new rock career
After all that rock ‘n’ roll it was time to get back to the hotel and rest. In the evening before dinner, the whole crew gathered at the bar for a well earned drink, only this time it was not to calm down any nerves, but to celebrate the start of a new rock career. But what would a perfect day be, without a perfect dinner? With that said, dinner was eaten at Restaurant Svartengrens.
Basically a rockstar
So I believe it is safe to say that the day had been one massive success and Mattias is basically already a rockstar. The last question, and perhaps the most important, Mattias was asked was: If LeoVegas sent you on another event, what would you like to do?
To that Mattias had a great answer: “I would be thrilled to go abroad on an awesome concert it would be cool to see Scorpions since Mikkey plays there.” We feel you Mattias!
And while we’re all waiting for another rock concert, or maybe classical music this time, hey we don’t judge, why don’t you head over to LeoVegas.com to check out our latest campaign we are offering, while listening to Ace of Space…or Bach. Like said we don’t judge.
