I Know that this news is a little old,but I have just recevied the magazine in hands so I decided to write about this cover.The magazine is called Burrn!It is one of the most important rock magazines of the world.Angra had a cover in 96 on the “Holy Land’ times.I and André on the cover.It was a mark for the band.Now, ten years after (realize how difficult is to be on this magazine...) here I am again,with a metal icone:Dave Mustaine.I had already posted my picture with him, but I couldn’t say that it was to the cover of this magazine.The pictures were taken a day before Loud Park Festival.At 11 am I went to the hotel where Megadeth was received as a guest.They put all the photo equipment in an event room.Everyone was waiting apprehensive for Dave,because he is famous for being a little temperamental.But against what everyone was “wondering”, he arrived with “happy boy” mood.Wet hair,black clothes and no rock stuff...His image build by himself is enough.Quickly we took the shoes off (To not stain the floor of photographic background) and we started taking the pictures.He joked because on his hose was writting “red head”.He said that the reason for that was to he doesn’t forget that he was one “red head”... The japanese guys with all the delicacy asked him to dry his hair... because it was about taking a picture for a cover.I think that for him it was just one among so many.Then he came back with his familiar face...

We took lots of pictures or as bad guys and smilling.On the cover we are serious,but inside there’s a picture of us smilling.After I am gonna scan to put on the website.

We talked about Dogs and I explained him about the mixing of Brazillian Filas.He is a big fan of dogs, as I am.I had brought a berimbaru to give to the magazine picks out by lot and he already started talking about capoeira, slave’s fight,and about our famous jiu-jitsu carioca (From Rio de Janeiro).That’s the reason for I say that the guy is the contrary of the people say about him.
That’s it...just to share a moment that for me was really special.

Don’t forget on 18th December I am gonna play at Souza Lima for free with the Universo Inverso guys.

The day before Via Funchal Concert, I found a little time to not leave this Blog too abandoned.
Yesterday I went bed late to watch Jô Soares...

To me is really cool to be there.I have a huge respect for all the production of the show, and now I can realize that they really like my work.During a Year, I was there two times.To introduce No Gravity and now Universo Inverso.We know how many artists and bands would like to be there...Worth the work of Alê Fernandes who also does my adviser.

Wait because I must participate of more shows soon.

You guys can imagine that with all Angra’s stuff I got some time to rehearse with Yaniel, Carlinhos and Alex.Alex knew the songs just one day before the concert.We rehearsed for 40 minutes and only this.For me it’s very good to play a side this level musicians.

At the end I get happy when I can make these things come true, because I always go trough a lot of stress untill them happen.

The pictures I have sent to the website too.This is one is not an unpublished picture as the ones of the previous posts.Taking a look at the picture we can notice that this is the moment when we have a rest to play the bridge of the song “Feijão de Corda.

I think I was a really serious on this post... but it’s ok... kisses and huges

I took so long, but here I am again!We have just finished a tour through the brazillian northeast. Five concerts in five days. We got a little tired, but the public on the concert worths any sleepless night...Three pictures for you...

The first one has the 6 friends before getting in the “van” which would go to Recife concert.These happy,calm and unit moments are really cool.The others two pictures happened when I “invaded” the stage to take some pictures of Rafa and Edu playing Rebith along with the audience on the venue.A really special moment taken from the show.One picture was taken from Recife concert and the other from Fortaleza concert.I know this picture is not that good,but this is only the point of view which belongs to the band.I think it’s cool to share with you guys.A great Hug!
