Western Addiction is currently on tour in Europe with Lagwagon and The Flatliners, and the band (Western Addiction, that is) are keeping us informed on what’s going down. Check out the second entry below, and check out their tour dates here.
Lyon, France to Bristol, England
Hello from Bristol! It’s a Dickensian temperature! We just finished our shows in France and have four nights in the UK before heading to Amsterdam, then Germany. I can’t wait to see the Ramones museum!
3.18 – Lyon, France
After our show, Ken operated heavy machinery, Chris threw his hands up. 3.19 – Cognac, France
This is how Paul looks most of the time, perpetually happy, a solid dude, 24/7.
I also need to mention that during the show, some dude pulled his dinger out and played air guitar on it on stage. I’ve seen anything and everything at a show, never seen this. Hats off, Satriani.

If you are on the fence, do yourself a favor and go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The view is crazy. Also, it’s brown; not grey, not silver, it’s brown.
Sometimes you can’t eat dinner before a show if you are going to be screaming for a half hour. We often have to eat late. This is one of those nights. 3.23 – London, UK
We had to get up at 5:30am to go through UK Border Patrol and get on the ferry to cross the English Channel. When we were waiting to go in, that huge band, Train, from SF was also waiting in line. When the singer went through, Scott said, “It’s ok, he can go through, he’s the conductor.” We all cracked up. Papa Roach was also on our boat!
T earned a little money after the show.
Manchester, see you on the pitch!
