Oi 2011 !!

by Sami ~ February 23rd, 2011. Filed under: News.

Even though we’ve been taking it easy on Michael Monroe band front since the end of last year it’s been very exciting in many ways in anticipation of the new MM album.
Holidays were holidays, took it easy w the fam here in NYC ,had huge dinner parties and ended the year w a mother of all house parties,had 50 plus people show up in our apartment in Brooklyn to bring in the 2011, lots of friends, friends of friends and peeps I never knew who the F they were.Did the old molten tin into a bucket of water magick reading for the upcoming year and suffered a horrid 2 day hangover following the revelries.
In the beginning of Jan. MM band flew to Finland for a one off show to celebrate the opening of Turku as the cultural capital of Europe 2011,after which rest of the boys flew back to their various homes.I stayed behind in Finland and did a one week whirlwind Mad Juana tour which was a total and utter blast, had fun, played, danced, made people dance and get drunk,the tour was over too fast, hoping to get back as soon as possibly possible!
In Feb. I returned to Finland once more to do a one week tour w my first band Pelle Miljoona Oy for 6 sold out shows,first shows in 31 years, this was a group I was in prior to Hanoi Rocks,the starting point of my long career and travels around the globe, the shows were incredibly well received and had a beautiful positive vibe,looking forward to doing some gigs again in the future with the geezas.
Now I’m back home in NYC again, chillin,readin books, watchin movies, cooking and getting my head and strength together for another year of touring and lunacy w Michael,Ginger,Karl and Stevie.Can not wait for the release of the new album “Sensory Overdrive” which I consider absolutely one of the best albums I have ever played on.
Looking forward to seeing you all in 2011 wherever you are,Europe,US,Asia,South-America,Australia,New Zealand,………. we are coming your way.
Enjoy the album and see you soon live!!

    Most excellent Sami! Sounds like things have great. Looking forward to both the record and revisiting the live experience. Any plans for SXSW this year, either as Mad Juana or just hanging out?

    Heheey, I’m very excited about the new album! 🙂 I’m sure it will be great to hear some of the new songs the next time I see you guys live. Still, I do hope your setlist will include some good old Hanoi songs as well!

    Oh and by the way, I noticed you’re going to play at Tavastia on the 26th of March, which is great! I think I’ll take a couple of friends with me and come over there to celebrate my 21th birthday! It’s going to be the best way I can think of to spend the evening!
