We arrived in Helsinki, Friday night, November 1, at the Tavastia Klub for one show before leaving for Europe.
My MetalMan and my shirt lmao. Thank you Kulta, I have wanted to see these guys since I was in the States. Waiting patiently, sold out crowd.
69Eyes was celebrating 30 years as the best Goth n Roll Band anywhere.
This MetalHead had a total fan girl moment when seeing these guys. This venue I love even sold out you’re so close to the band you feel like you could reach out and touch them. I love the small venues.
Damn HeadBangers I have said a million times I’m not a professional at videoing yet give me time PERKELE lmao. I know it’s sideways, just push play it will straighten out.
Jyrki 69 – Vocals
Bazie – Guitar
Timo-Timo – Guitar
Archzie – Bass
Jussi 69 – Drums
Of course I love everyone in the band. But let me tell you about the one and only, best damn drummer on the planet in any band, rock or metal or otherwise. Jussi Perkele. When I first started listening to 69Eyes, I was take by, of course, Jyrki and that smooth sexy dark voice of his. BUT, the more I listened and watched their videos the more I noticed this man on the drums. Paska, he never stopped, he can go from one song to the next without missing a beat and I believe he is the pure energy that drives this band. He’s unstoppable, I am truly in aware of this man and not just because he is a mass of solid muscle. He is a total professional and anyone who is into music knows drummers NEVER stop. I believe they have the most physical job in a band. Watch some videos and see what you think. There are drummers and then there are DRUMMERS. Jussi happens to be the DRUMMER. Ok I’m done and yes I am his number one fan.
Well my HeadBangers that’s it for this special edition, join me this Friday for Week 56.. A look back at EverStill, the first band ever to be on the blog. Until then don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
