RAISE HELL: Interview mit Chatevent: Dennis und Jimmy

01.01.1970 | 01:00

Um die 30 Headbanger fanden sich im Rock-Channel unseres Partners Metropolis ein, um Dennis (Drums) und dem frisch hinzugekommenen Sänger Jimmy der schwedischen Trasher von RAISE HELL Löcher in den Bauch zu fragen. Obwohl es deutlich ruhiger zuging als beim Kiske-Chat wurde es nie langweilig, viele Fragen wurden gestellt und die Jungs von RAISE HELL amüsierten sich offensichtlich blendend.
Sie blieben nicht nur noch eine ganze Zeit, nachdem der "offizielle" Event endete sondern hatten auch einen Heidenspass daran, mit weiblichen Chatteilnehmern zu schäkern - es sei ihnen vergönnt. Aber lest selbst!
