Thanks Bernie. We ♥️ your work.

Honestly Bernie – your work significantly enlargens the motorpsycho experience for the fans and keeps people engaged. Old and new. But keep it slow indeed, plus any server costs etc. should be payed/shared with all of us

Finally could watch the Dutch/Belgian concerts in a relaxed mood and realized once again, what a great band MP can be these days. Some things escape your attention when you’re standing in the noise maelstrom front of stage. Those clips give the MP experience really another dimension.November 19, 2023 at 22:33 #42384The Other AndersParticipant
Fair enough to slow down, even to take a break, but please don’t stop! It should not feel like work, though. To me, MP my longest lasting hobby, the soundtrack to my life. I feel so lucky to have a band like MP in my life. To be able to experience the concerts, to wait for new records with excitement, to travel to see the concerts, to dig and find, to record and share. They are the Pink Floyd of my lifetime.
I recorded three concerts this time. Trondheim, Malmö, and Copenhagen. I could not travel more to see more this time. The rest of the tour I experience through recordings and videos. It’s almost like being there. Almost.
I know about two other recordings of Trondheim. One will probably never be shared. The other probably will. We know about no recording from Uppsala, the first gig with Ingvald, but we have his second and third. I was there, and I invite everyone who was not able to witness it to witness it. As do you with the videos, Bernie.
I admire the work that goes into it. Preparing the equipment, bringing it, setting it up, being occupied with this before the concert, worry about the recordings, how they will turn out. Keeping an eye, being unavailable to people around you through the concert, packing and bringing it home. And now starts The Work! Plus the time and costs. So I really hope you can find a good balance, becuase your contribution to the community is valuable.
Being a Pink Floyd fan too, I am going through their whole live career in chronologic order, collecting and listening to every concert ever recorded. There is very little video, almost everything is audio. It is in it self fantastic how much exists, and how good some of the recordings from back then are, but more footage is sorely missed. Between Pompeii, recorded pre Dark Side in October 1971 and the Wall in 1980 there is not footage of one complete song, let alone a complete concert. All we have is 5-15 mins of 8 mm film snippets from some concerts. Not complaining, it’s what was possible at that time for the amateurs. And for reasons unknown, professional recordings were not made during the bands most classic period.
Do you see what I am getting at? You’re mainly the one archiving all of the beauty that is MP for us now, and for the archaeologists to discover far into the future!
I have recorded the sound of some 50-70, maybe 100 MP concerts myself, most of them from 1999-2006. I found it to be too much of a (Arnie’s) hassle for some years, but started recording again in 2019, as I regretted not having recorded especially Copenhagen 2017, which was my first concert with Thomas, and the bands second with K Lo.
The other day some new members om Motortrades started downloading my old recordings. Recordings I made more than two decades ago. That made me happy.
Every time I listen to a recording I send a thank you to everyone involved. The ones recording, sharing, making it available, so that I can sit here in my sofa and take in all this beaty, these World wonders of music, 50 years later or five days later. Or a week, or a few months later. That, my friend is just mind-blowing. It’s World heritage, and you help preserve it and make it available for generations to come to enjoy it.November 20, 2023 at 00:06 #42386ffbernieParticipant
didnt want to start a panic …thanks for all the nice words. Don’t get me wrong Im not tired of the band. It’s just that it’s getting a bit neurotic compulsive lately. MP show = filming instead of enjoying. We’ll see…again thanks for the love it means a lot x bernie

haha…you get it !November 20, 2023 at 00:21 #42387suntripperParticipant
Bernie, you definitely need to be able to take in a show sometimes without the stress of filming. You deserve that! If we still receive the occasional gift from you in future, we will be more than grateful.November 20, 2023 at 09:48 #42390Phoots FlowerParticipant
Re-reading my previous message I apologise because I had nice words about your videos but I forgot to thank you for your effort and dedication. They involve a lot of sacrifice. Sometimes too much and it’s normal that you may consider making decisions. In any case, thank you for everything. If there are more of your videos in the future, all the better, but you’ve earned your place in the sky years ago.
Your video collection is on par with our favourite band at least for me.
Thanks for sharing with us . ♥️
