Hamburg 08.12.2008


Britta: Hey Larry…how are you?
Larry: Tiered…we just arrived…
Britta: Oh ok…Should we start?
Larry: Ok…
Britta: What was your personal Highlight in 2008?
Larry: 2008? Oh…maybe it was…hmmm…making the new album. Yeah…when it was finished! It was a great feeling cause it was kind of a big challenge for me…cause I had to do all the guitars.
Britta: Yes I know…
Larry: When did we release it?
Britta: In May!
Larry: Ok…(laughing)…so it was 2008!
Britta: (laughing) Yes!
Larry: This was one of my Highlights…making “Karma Killer”.
Britta: Which was your favourite song in 2008? Not from Negative…from other bands!
Larry: Mhhh…there are so many songs…I have listened lots of Pink Floyd…let’s say “Coming back to life” from Pink Floyd! From “The Division Bell” Album…
Britta: Ok…is there something special that you are looking forward to in 2009?
Larry: Yeah…I am looking forward to…some peace of mind…I have been to a astrologic and she told me that this year is like handling all your problems and next year will be great…
Britta: Hopefully…
Larry: Yeah…I hope so…
Britta: Yes, I think there will be lots of concerts coming up…like Italy? Have you been to Italy before?
Larry: No…

Britta: How was it in Mexico? Has there been many Negative Fans?
Larry: Yes there was…there has been this autograph session…there were around 300 people…maybe there was more but the other band was playing and they didn’t tell anything about this autograph session. Many fans was disappointed because of that. So there was some kind of fan base…and I have to say that people over there are some kind of different…they are so like…how should I say…they have lots of energy.
Britta: And they was really looking forward to see Negative! They have waited so long for it…
Larry: Yeah…like five years…
Britta: So you have planned to go back to tour Mexico?
Larry: Yes of course…it is possible. That’s the point…and maybe other cities around…
Britta: America?
Larry: Yeah…I don’t know yet…we will see.
Britta: And did you see anything else in Mexico?
Larry: No I didn’t really see anything. We were there like only two whole days and next day after the concert we were sleeping the whole day…
Britta: Because of the jetlag?
Larry: Yeah…and Hungover…
Britta: It was a very long flight…
Larry: Yes a very long flight…it was 12 hors and than 6 hours waiting…than 2 hours flight and than two hours driving home…
Britta: Quite long time…
Larry: How was the things going here?
Britta: I think like always…
Larry: Ok…
Britta: We was wondering that there was so less fans outside waiting…but maybe it is because it is so cold…
Larry: Or maybe it is because our career is going down…(laughing)…I don’t know…
Britta: Ok…I found another question…if you could be a band member of your band for one day…who would you like to be and why? Changing roles…
Larry: Maybe Jay…because I like to play drums.
Britta: Like your brother? He is drummer…
Larry: Yeah…he is a great drummer!
Britta: It is funny…Antti and Jonne said the same…that they would like to be Jay…so everybody in this bands wants to change roles with Jay! (laughing)
Larry: Yes…(laughing) Would be nice to play in big concerts halls…the drums…very loud…but I never tried…
Britta: But you would be able to play drums? Or would you have to learn?
Larry: Yes I can play something but I am not so good…I was better before…I should practise before I try it…
Britta: Here is another question…is there a song that you didn’t like in 2008? Something that really got on your nervs.
Larry: Yes…there has to be something…but I don’t really know…I am not listening so much radio…
Britta: So what about a song of Negative that you don’t like to play anymore because it is getting on your nervs? Because you played it to often…
Larry: Mhhh…not really…and now it is different because we are playing only with one guitar…
Britta: Ok…
Larry: Everything has changed…so every time it’s a beautiful challenge…at this tour maybe it is going to be more routine..
Britta: Ok, thank you for your time…see you soon!

We thank Larry for this Interview and spending his time with us!
