So this is a cool story with a very happy ending...


A few years back a young Thai drummer posted her video covering Pareidolia, I think she was 7 at the time. She actually takes lessons from Ray, and in the meantime has done other covers, including Messiah Complex in its entirety. I've chatted with her mom a lot, extremely nice people. So obviously when Haken announced their Bangkok show, they were all excited to see the band. I asked about VIP or a meet and greet, and her mom was all "oh, they're only here a day and are big rock stars, they wouldn't have time for us"..of course I knew better having met them, and would've bet any amount of money Ray would want to meet his student in person. Last week her mom messages me saying the meet and greet was set, and they even made gift bags for the whole band lol. Ray tells her yesterday to come with drumsticks and headphones....in case it's too loud lol...

They get there, and get to see the soundcheck. Towards the end Ross invites young Zasa onto the stage, and they let her play drums for the soundcheck for Cockroach King. At the end of the video you can hear someone say "Ray you're fired" lol

That's an awesome story. I love this band so much.  :heart

They play in an actual church in Bochum? I think I need to see this.

That is incredible, thanks for sharing it RJ and also for encouraging her mum to do the meet & greet. She nailed the whole song, and what an amazing experience for her. As far as I can tell from a google search she's still only 10 years old? Amazing.

You should definitely share that on Haken Haven.

And that was Hen telling Ray he was fired. :lol

I live in Bochum and yes, it is a real church! Rock concerts take place there from time to time. For example, bands like Neal Morse, Opeth, In Flames played there a few years ago. It's a pretty unique location.  :metal

It's been a hilarious back and forth between us the past month or so... there was one day where I was seeing what other bands Zasa was familiar with, see if I could interest her in new bands. Her parents have zero influence on the process, she finds all the bands herself mind you... I already knew she was a fan of Tesseract since they have tickets to that show as well (and their drummer has reached out to Zasa for a meet and greet too lol, Zasa is actually in process of learning War of Being). I started with the obvious ones like DT, PT, Steven Wilson, BtBaM, all of which she knew (she was sitting with her mom as this conversation went on, and Zasa was just naming songs that she liked from all the bands lol)... I finally found one she wasn't familiar with, Caligula's Horse, and dropped a few songs for her to check out, and also mentioned to her mom that she hands down had the coolest kid ever. :lol

Both Haken and Temic are confirmed for CTTE 2025. Interesting.

First time in 14 years of Haken gigs they're actually playing my hometown. Of course I bought tickets. :)

Interesting but not sure it will come out to anything worthy.  Of course it would be cool if Diego was good with the Haken guys and they did something fun together even with Peter, but I'm guessing that won't happen and the two bands just do their own thing on the boat without conflict or anything meaningful.

ReaperKK

I've been following this Haken thread on/off and I know there was some tension behind the Diego Departure, but was there any real bad blood?

IIRC Diego kind of pulled a Geoff Tate on his way out the door. It wasn't a good look. But after an initial smack talk by Diego, everyone else has been completely tight lipped as far as I've seen. I'm not even sure ariich would want to chime in on this one. It might be too loaded.

Nick

I can say with a fair degree of certainty that Diego won't be invited on to play a guest spot with them.

They should invite Eric instead :P
There you go... a little Shattered Fortress reunion without MP. Or maybe MP will be on the boat as well...hmm
