In Bed with Ásgeir

Reeperbahn Festival 2013. A sunny Friday morning. I enter a hotel room with only two guys instead of a whole band. One of them is Ásgeir Traustir. And instead of saying hello, I say “Where is the rest of the band? I wanted to ask if one of them would be interested in marrying me!”
At least, after saying hello I explained that I was so fed up by Germany’s (non existing) response to the whole NSA surveillance scandal, that I was looking for countries you might want to live in, Iceland (where they are from) being one of them.

Needless to say, I left the room not engaged but with two wonderful sessions and a nice short interview. (Watch out for the tour manager’s laugh from the off at the question if Ásgeir is a morning person.)

  1. Hihi, einen Isländer zu heiraten ist definitiv ein guter Plan für die Zukunft! Ásgeir hat eine Schwester, die auch mega gut singen kann. Hab sie in Island kennengelernt. Sympathisches & musikalisches Volk.
