with Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, Tim Christensen proved to be
one of the greatest talents at the Danish music scene. Generally
I'm not into too "heavy" guitar music, but the music that
Tim creates both with Dizzy and in his
solo projects is so variated and filled with so many genious details
that the level is miles beyond ordinary heavy guitar rock. Furthermore
his albums are a perfect mix of guitar rock and ballads, that he
reaches a large number of listeners, - even people not normally
into guitar-based rock.
As could be seen in Tivoli that beautiful evening
at the end of May, Tim Christensen has an immense
crowd of devoted fans - some of them already being present up front
at the Plænen from the afternoon, to be sure
to get a good place for the concert at 10 P.M.
Unfortunately I was only allowed to take photographs during the
first three songs, due to a misunderstanding from one of the people
in the staff, even though I had a written permission from Tim
himself to take photographs, and Tim wrote me the
day after to apologize. But anyway I managed to take a few photos,
which can be viewed below. I watched the rest of the performance
from the stage side, and a lot of brilliant photographs might have
been taken later at the concert, as the intensitivity increased.
Tim Christensen gave songs from both his solo album,
Secrets On Parade, and some of the new songs from
the second, still unnamed solo album, scheduled for a Autumn 2003
What a brilliant experience it was ...

have met Tim Christensen a couple of times earlier this year:
Copenhagen, 18. January 2003
after Swan Lee's Secret Concert at Rust,
I met Tim Christensen for the first time. The concert
was a trial run of Swan Lee's live set before the
band's performance at the Midem Festival the day after
in Cannes, France. Tim was in the audience and took
part in the after party (see the photos on this site: SWAN
LEE: RUST 18. January 2003).
As Tim and Pernille Rosendahl used to
be a loving couple in the early days of what later became Swan
Lee, it was nice to see the two of them in close conversation
after Pernille's stage performance with the band.
Tim even played (keyboards) in Swan Lee,
as can be seen in the documentary, Stjernekigger.

Copenhagen, 7. March 2003
time was after the double concert by Stripclub Junkies
Kira and the Kindred Spirits in Pumpehuset.
After the concert only two spotlights still hit the floor, - a green
and a red spot and I asked Tim to stand under the
lights. The following pics show the result:
of the most talented artists in Denmark today in conversation.

at all, so the camera was unable to focus!!!
