MESSE 2014: Live Blog Day 1

From the massive halls of Frankfurt      12/03/14

First day of the largess of Musik Messe 2014. If you thought NAMM was physically large, then consider this: Musik Messe has its own internal public tranport system to get around. We have the know how to survive though, and I must say I have grown to love the German sausage lunch with potato salad although it does make your wee smell funny (too much information?).

Stay tuned - here it comes...

The Nord lead A1R looks a bit blurry. Are the german wursts making you a bit shaky?

Nice steady stream of pictures, though. Keep 'em coming!
