CONCERT AT THE "ROSENHOF"
NOVEMBER 9, 2007
fans speak out:
“We were together at the Ten Years After
concert on Friday November 9th in
Osnabruck, and I enjoyed it very much. It was a
lovely Rock and Blues night with some Woodstock guys
playing from their heart and a young fellow playing
the stars from heaven on his guitar.
certainly will visit the concert again when TYA will
play near Oldenzaal, Holland.

I was in Osnabruck to the Ten Years After show
with some friends. We all have had a very
pleasant rocking evening, and I want to thank
you for playing so well and so long!!! It was
one of the best concerts I have seen overall. It
is always nice to have a place just in front of
the podium and to be part of the hardest TYA
fans. Next time you play near by, we surely come
Years After Forever
from Gerard Schouwink
Gooch is simply fantastic, absolutely fresh and
Ten Years After “Now” are fantastic. They
accomplished a hard feat, to draw audiences and
sell out houses with a new guitarist. I mean,
could someone actually equal Alvin? Once thought
of as impossible or simply unthinkable, but it
has come to pass.”
plays more sensitive and evocative guitar
solos, surpassing his predecessor on this and
many other levels. His version of “I’d Love To
Change The World” provides a better dynamic and
technically more effective statement than the
original.” Joe has amazing finger dexterity and is
one of the most thrilling discoveries after so many
years of big new surprises in the music world. Joe
stands heads and shoulders above many a lesser
player, because his playing is very tonal, as is Leo
plays hard, heavy handed and with incredible youth
and vigour. To watch and listen to him (Leo) soloing
and playing is an experience not to be missed. He
punctuates songs with a pumping thumping rhythm,
with a definitive
accent like no one else, it’s his trademark and no
bass player in the world can match his performance,
there’s just no competition.”
the show the audience stood enthralled and focused.
Facing the stage, watching the camera crew doing their
respective jobs with quizzical interest, and the band
playing as if their lives depended on it.
stated above, everyone in the audience would return or
travel to see the band again. This is the true
testament of just how far the band has progressed in
the last five years with Joe Gooch at the helm, Leo as
the rudder / keel master, Ric as the captain and Chick
as executive navigator.
A very well oiled machine.
the same professionals who did the outstanding
dvd’s for “Foreigner”
“Y & T (Yesterday and Today) and now they’re here to capture another
live performance by Ten Years After.
Three cameras are set up right next to Wolfie and the huge mixing board. There’s
also a boom camera like the one in Luxembourg, as well as three portable remote
cameras for the stage shots. I counted seven all together, along with people in
the audience doing their personal filming.
witnessed the checks and double checks before the concert began. Timers were
calibrated and set into motion, and then reset once again. The set list was
reviewed and the crew was well prepared / versed to handle the extra long show.
to Osnabruck this evening we were unprepared for all this extra activity, we
were expecting just another good concert by TYA – and the rest was just
another bonus for us.
Sander Veenstra - Leo's bass technician:
Hello Sander: Thanks for everything this year,
great meeting you in Luxembourg and here in Osnabrück
- always good to see you.
All the best to you, your family and the band in
friends were again out in force.
Pieper, Wolfgang Pilgrim (concert promoter) and photographers were there with us….along with many
other familiar faces.
set list was expanded for this performance.
The band was in good form.
The film crew were very attentive to detail.
Wolfe controlled the mixing board from start to finish, while also adding some
echo to Joe’s vocals in the right places.
All in all another very good show.Enjoy
We submit Brigitte’s excellent photos here, to be the visual proof of what we
and the other fans witnessed first hand on that night
