July 27, 1996 – Paleo Festival, Nyon, Switzerland

20 years ago, I went for the first time to the Paleo Festival in Nyon, Switzerland. I was invited by The Skatalites. I remember, the show was inna tent. After the show, we went to a Hotel in Nyon, where some polish people blocked our Hotel rooms. It was in the middle of the night, and these heavy men had to leave their rooms. I was aware of a big fight with them. Can’t remember how, but finally everything was fine.

The 1996 festival is still online here.

It was a great event, because there was a nice meeting with The Skatalites and Third World. All together on a big large table eating in the backstage area. After that, the Skatalites went on touring Europe.

While Third World performed later that night, I was on stage. Bunny Rugs came to ask me for a cigarette, before he went back on stage.
