Well, I think it’s about time to introduce myself. I have been on 70K this January, so some of you know me already. For the rest – see below and don’t get scared.
Lausanne, Switzerland – though I was born & grew-up in Poland, lived 20 years in Netherlands and moved to CH.
What first got you into metal?
I was 15 and very rebellious; looking for freedom and rock was forbidden in communistic Poland. It was almost impossible to get any albums and there were no live rock gigs whatsoever. Father of my friend was a diplomat and he was smuggling LPs to Poland. My friend recorded them on a cassette recorder and with group of friends we were listening to them at the cementary close to school. I started with Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Van Halen ……… I immigrated to Holland in 1984 and started to go to live shows. My ex-husband hated metal, so for many years I could not freely join my “metal family”.
Play any instruments?
No. I tried guitar but gave up after one year and I was singing in a rock band when I was a teenager.
Top 5 bands?
What do you do?
I am in medical devices. Started my own company this year after working in management of big corporations.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Photography, reading fantasy & science fiction, music. I like to discover new talents, new bands. My ears now are on: Algebra, Petrol Patrol & Sounds of Fury.
What deck are you on?
On Barge deck 3
What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
I believe in Unicorns & Norwegian Trolls
My son is coming with me to Barge and was with me on 70k in January. I took him first time to Pinkpop & Graspop when he was 9 years old
We still go often to the same shows just not together . I don’t do festivals anymore since I kind of like comfort of a real bed. And yes I headbang & you can find me in the mosh, and yes I scream
