      Hi all,

      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!

      >Hello all!
      >
      >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.

      >will
      >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
