Photograph Smile

Bob Rose binds his ponytail looking for a suitable word. Overwhelming doesn't describe it. After a seven year disappearance, Julian Lennon is now loaded with his new CD and a headliner concert in Rome before a few hundred thousand visitors. More than overwhelming.







Set cunning:
How Many Times
And She Cries
I Should Have Known
Believe
Good To Be Lonely
Photograph Smile
I Don't Wanna Know
Day After Day
Stand By Me
Bob Rose is Lennon's producer - in Mainz in order to ensure together with SWF tone engineer Daniel Giese the correct sound for the Germany premiere of " Photograph Smile " Altogether there are ten musicians on stage, for the two of them therefore-forty automatic controllers are situated before them snare ,vox gtr,violin - piled beside them a few racks for Hall and similar Spielereien. Over a small video monitor both observe how Julian and CO in the hall concentrate on the sound CHECK.

Some musicians treat the Buehnenhands such as muck, so that everyone notices directly that they are a star. Lennon thanks you even, if you ausgepegelt cleanly his monitor. " Good mood despite a long working day also in the Ue-car. " Bob is unbelievably professional, that made it fun! " Daniel Giese says after the concert.
