    My friend met them in a cafe just before the Rockefeller gig in Oslo in March or whatever.
    She says Mikael is a bit bulkier in real life.

    I ran into them before the gig. It was right outside the concert hall but, still :lol:

    Whoever's sister that was, she was right. They are absolutely huge. Especially Mikael and Axe. Fred kinda looks like a teddy bear. Mendez is above classification, being that cool. Per had a trenchcoat and a hat, sitting on a couch, sippin wine. After the show of course.

    How tall is Mendez anyway? I figure he must be really small, I was watching some live videos and my wife remarked "Whoa, that bass is HUGE". "But hon, it's just a jazz bass, the same as mine..." (actually it isn't, I just have a black MIJ Jazz Fretless, not the MM Signature, but you get the idea :) ) and it doesn't look too big in my hands.

    But of course - I was only wondering, because, after my wife's comments, I have to admit that Mendez's Jazz Bass looks positively gargantuan in his hands.

    I still use his likeness as avatar, and bow to the awesomeness of the no-no headbanging.

    If I ran into one of the guys I'd help them up...

    I have seen them twice before a show.
    In Downtown Disney Peter was out & about.

    In Worcester I saw Mikael, Peter & some of the crew coming out of the Irish Times as I was going in.
    Missed my chance to buy the guys a round.

    If I happened to see one of them in their private time I'd leave them alone.
