Hi Paco,

welcome to the Forum!

Ghostlights is a very cool name for an AVA cover band :) .

Have fun on the Forum and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
It has become a bit quiet around here, but the usual suspects are still around.

Welcome on board(s)! :)

If I'm not mistaken, you are (were?) also in Ice Scream, right? ;)

Good luck with your project, I could maybe see you some day in the Southwest?



Lara: yeah, "usual suspects", that's the thing :P :lol:

Hiya Paco.

Have fun and don't be afraid...
Here, have some lollies and a balloon!
:P


BTW my highschool was nicknamed 'Paco' or 'Paco Pound'. A 'pound' is where they take stray dogs and as we were an all female school, the other local female school gave us that LOVELY name.
:lol:

Hi there everybody and thanx a lot for the warm welcome !!
I can see things are a bit quiet indeed ! I guess people are all addcited to FB and less on forums ;)

Well done Thierry ! I used to be Ice Scream singer which was a fun Edguy coverband ;)
Ghostlights has become a real serious one !

That's why we hired Jp Fournier for the artwork ! Take a look if you havent ;)

Muppet we used to talk when I was active on the forum as Hellfire Paco if I remember well haha ;)

Any of you guys will be at Pratteln on the 28th of june ?

OMG, did we?
I don't recall, sorry.
I must admit the name Hellfire Paco rings a bell but i don't recall what we talked about.
*hides face*
:lol:

I think i have 'spoken' with close to a thousand fans over the years.
Give or take.
On here, Facebook, Myspace, Orkut and a few other Metal forums i used to post at as well as privately, so PLEASE don't hold it against me if i don't recall our conversation.
Which is kinda good in a way.
I keep a list of the 'Bad/Psycho/stalker Savages' and 'Hellfire Paco' isn't on it!!!
:lol:

And no, i won't be in Pratteln.
I doubt i will be in Europe for a very long time now, if ever again.
Have fun if you are going to Pretteln though and be safe.
:wink:

Hi there^^

Ghostlights is a truely fitting Name^^ and i love your artwork.
i stumbled across you version of "Lost in Space", a while ago. i realy like what you did with the intro. i don't know how to say this as i don't know a lot about making musik, but i think your version of the Inrto sounds more.. interesting? i don't know it seams to have a bit more of character
I'm just another Scarecrow

Hey Muppet no pb !!
That was a long time ago i'd say around 5 to 10 years imagine haha ! At that time I think u wanted to live in Fulda : I wonder why hahaha !

Thanks jarhara for your words : they mean a lot !! We're starting because we still haven't played live so it's cool to get some feedback on the songs we published on the Internet !

Have u checked Breaking Away and Reach Out For The Light ?

And yeah ! We love the artwork by Jp !!!

:o
Me want to live in Fulda?
:lol:

Yeah, no, that definitely wasn't me.

No offence Lollilegs if you are reading this, even if i have always thought you were hot!!!
:P

I've been terrified of going anywhere near Fulda until i actually went there last year for Avantasia.
Even Alex Kuehr(Ava/Edguy Photographer) in 2011 was teasing me and telling me to go to Fulda when we met for coffee. He and my friend were laughing and saying how she has been trying to convince me to go and that i still have a couple days left to squeeze in a visit!
:lol:

*thinking*

I DID want to do the Romantic/Fairytale Road thingy Germany have.
That goes right by Fulda.
But no, i've never wanted to live there.
:)

I WAS meant to do a student exchange with my University for my HR Management Degree and i was tossing up between Heidelberg or Sweden.
Then another University also had a place up near Dortumnd.
Maybe that was what we were discussing?

With that being said though, do you want to know how paranoid i was when walking around Fulda for a few days alone AFTER the Avantasia gig last year?
I thought i saw Jens with some other guys, having a beer and it freaked me out so much. Can you imagine me walking along, back to my hotel room after buying some stuff, lost in my daydream and then as i look over to my left because i could hear conversation and laughter, a guy that looked like Jens in a cap was staring right at me? I got such a fright i think i even gasped! I just looked straight ahead and quickened my pace, carrying my shopping as fast as possible back to my hotel because i felt SOOOOOOOOOOOOO guilty for being there, in 'their' place.
Stupid right?

I guess knowing what some fans have done to Edguy and their family members, stalked their homes, i just felt like i was intruding on their privacy by even being in Fulda, for longer than the show.
It most probably wasn't Jens AT ALL, it was just a poor guy that looked like him no doubt BUT when i told my friends what happened they thought i was mad, especially because i couldn't stop laughing at myself or my reaction!
Now we laugh about it and my stupidity for feeling so 'guilty'!
I'm nuts!
:lol:

But Fulda IS breathtaking!
It's just like a storybook.
I loved my time there and hope to have a reason to visit again some day.
My German friends and i did discuss buying a place there together, split 4 ways to use as an escape...
We were all joking but also not joking...
2 of us even looked at real estate listings while there!!!
Hand on heart truth!
:lol: :lol: :lol:

But like i said to them, i wouldn't feel right.
If i wasn't such a huge fan, then yeah, sure i'd have no issue with moving there.
But being such a huge fan, and knowing they live around that area, i would always feel guilty for being there.
That's their sanctuary and i wouldn't want to invade that.
:)

It really is a beautiful part of the world.
Actually, Hessen is amazing!
I LOVE HESSEN!
