Machine Head with friends visited Sweden, their second gig during the European tour. Arenan, Fryshuset was their hangout during this evening. Darkest Hour was the first band out during that evening, a bunch of incredible "Down to Earth" dudes. One odd thing was that the guys really liked purple, Mike C had dyed his hair purple, John H was dressed in purple, Mike S had a purple t-shirt, their guitar case was purple. At one point I actually had to ask why all this purple, Mike C said "We just want to be a little crazy"
