I'm forwarding the e-mail that I got a few days ago because I know a lot of
you are interested in it too.
PS: I´m planning to visit this tribute show, so is there anyone else
(from germany) who will drive with me? That would be great!
>Haarlem, January 18th, 2001,
>It took a long time to finish the Book Of (Happy) Memories, (A book
>where people who were close to Adrian can tell their story about
>him.) but now here it is. The reason why it took so long, is because
>translation went wrong in the first place (there will be a Dutch
>edition as well as an English one). Also I had my debut as a
>novellist in the end of last year, and working on two books at the
>time needed a lot of my attention. Last but not least I wanted the
>Book Of (Happy) Memories to really look beautiful, so several ideas
>passed until I was content with the way it looks. Anyway, the book is
>ready now and really looks great. I am also very happy with its
>contents. Several aspects of Adrian's character turn up while
>reading. There are 31 memories in it, half the amount is from abroad.
>Tribute ` The Sound of Adrian Borland'
>As you might know, there will be a tribute in Haarlem (at the
>venue `Het Patronaat'), on thursday February 15th. It is
>Sound Of Adrian Borland'. It is not quite certain which artists
>perform, but several musicians will join the tribute and they all
>will play songs written by Adrian. During the tribute there will be a
>video presentation and a dj plays rare material. Besides the book a
>cd will be presented on which several artists play Adrian covers. The
>cd is made by the American PJ Hakimi (Pathos Music, Portland (Or.).
>About the book
