sepultura belo horizonte created the topic: A story from Brasil 2002
I have a short storie to tell to all of you about Dave Lepard!
Around the year of 2002 or 2003 (I dont remember exactly), some friends had a tribute band to Guns N`Roses called CRASHDIET!
Well, one day a member of of the band recived a e-mail of a guy named Dave Lepard from a sweden glam band called CRASHDIET saying:
"Hy guys, you stoled the name of my band"
Well, we lived in a city called Belo Horizonte in Brazil, and that tribute band turned into a real band that composed your own music.
That band now is called WISACHE (
)! My name is Oliveira and now I live in Ipatinga - Brasil and the guys
from Wisache are living in Sao Paulo - Brasil!
I like to remember this story because thats the begning of my "love story" with the "REAL CRASHDIET" and probably we are the first guys in Brasil to hear the Dave Lepard and Crashdiet music.
Since then the CRASHDIET band grew "slightly" and I never forget the first time I heard songs like Miss Pain, Riot in ..., and the another first Crashdiet demos.
Thanks Dave for that "agressive" email, if Its not that way, I would have taken a little more time to listen to your music.
Im sorry for that horrible english (Im using a translator)!
Kisses,love, peace and lucky to MARTIN, ERIC AND PETER from your first Brazilian fan!

Thank you for the sharing!!
It's funny but nice story I think
I can imagine how Dave thought the name "CRASHDIET" was important...
I remember September 2005, cuz I knew them at that time.
I wanna back to those days, I was so happy cuz I knew them.
I made CRASHDIET japan fan site and talked with Dave by PMs...
really really happy days, I had terrible sickness though...
I miss September 2005 just now, your post made me recall those days...
