I was attending 5 grade in school and my older brother was a big fan of Disneyland After Dark. As you do in that age, I looked up to him so I began listening to the great rock band as well and got a bolo tie to match Stig. For a year I listened to my classmates telling me what is that you are listening to, you are strange, that is no good etc. But I could not help my self, Disneyland After Dark was the band for me, but still it was very hard to listen to all the bullying from my classmates for more than a year.
It was back in October 2005 when we, my wife Bonnie and I, went to a D-A-D concert in KB-hallen. My wife was pregnant and inside her tummy was our little unborn son at his first concert. During the concert we agreed that his name should be Laust, because we knew he got it So Laust Romeo was born on June 1st. 2006 and he loves to dance and sing and pretty soon he´ll be hitting some drums That´s a magic D-A-D moment for every day

How D-A-Ds songs helps me "surviving" my job ;-)
I work as a night watch in a hotel. Overall I am quite satisfied with my job - especially the contact with all the different types of guest that comes to stay here.
Of course working as a night watch has made "Sleeping my day away" one of my favourite songs ;-)
But lately I have had a hard time on my job, and then it feels good to be able to blow off steam and the most perfect song for that is of course: "Jihad"! - The fact that the hotel is a Seaman's Mission Hotel makes it even better ;-)
I’ve been a fan of D-A-D since I heard an interview with one of them in the radio in ’86 or ‘87. It was in Danish radio’s P4 and had a lot of ”Fly me to the moon”’s in it. At some point “Trucker” was played and I was sold. I recorded the song from the radio and began listening to it.
My name is Colin Betts. I have been a fan of D-A-D since 1990 when I first saw the video for Sleeping My Day Away. Through friends and some good luck, I have been able to keep up with their music and song, even receiving some very special Christmas cards along the way.
But it was not until a special show in Luxembourg on June 7, 2008 that I finally realized my dream of seeing the band live. From the opening of "Isn't that Wild", through the entire set, to after the show and meeting Stig, Jesper and Jacob. It was an amazing adventure in a terrific city.
I persuaded my wife to attend the "Grøn Koncert" in Næstved with me this summer. We arrived late as we only came for D-A-D, even though we had to endure most of Aqua, in our quest to get to the front. When Aqua ended, most of the Aqua fans disappeared, and we got a place in front row, in front of Stiggen.
It was a great koncert, but my most magic moment, was when my wife actually caught one of the drumsticks Laust Sonne threw to the audience and then gave it to me with a smile. Man...you got to love
I had been looking forward to the great Wigwam Tour all summer, and most of all to listen to my favorite band D-A-D. But then during my vacation I accidently heard on the radio that the whole tour was off! The summer was ruined and I just looked sadly at my worthless ticket.
But luck found us afterall, my friend and I went to the making up concert at 10-øren at Amager. The atmosphere was great and I knew the day would end in a big bang - D-A-D closing the event.
My best D-A-D related experince must be during the club tour in may 2005. We went to signing in Stereo Studio, came early enough to Musikcafeen to have dinner next to the band and after the amazing show in the tight atmosphere, Torleif signed the D-A-D skatebord and drew a large Helpyourselfish...

My most magic moment with D-A-D, is my first live concert with them ever. I felt in love with their music this summer, so i'm one of the new in the crowd of D-A-D fans, but definitely already one of their biggest!
26 th. of July and the 'Dirty Fairytale' was about to start.
My D.A.D moment is taking place in Phoenix, Arizona back in 1990. I was an exchange student in the US. When I left Denmark in 1989 D.A.D had just released there "no fuel left" album. I saw their show at Grand Palace in Odense.
Back in 2000, when they came out with EG, I was only 13 years old. Two years before my dad has surprised me at Christmas with a signed Psychopatico album, from the midnight release, which my parents had denied me to go to, cause I was too young. This time I convinced my dad, that he had to go with me, to GUF to the midnight release. But to stand at Nørrebro (think it was) at midnight, for a little kid was kind a weird, cause everywhere were grown ups with tattoos of Molly, the Helpyourselfish-Fish etc, and there I was I my ugly green jacket and my dad.
It was July 18 -97 in Svedala that I saw D-A-D life for the first time with my friend Robert. The evening began with that we biked from Malmoe to Svedala, without intending on that buses go to Svedala, he he. After one hour cycling we were there. Well in front so, we searched after a place to camp on that the result became a 20 minutes' cycling back to the concert. The concert was as a dream comes true, we have of course seen our idols, with its after dark in the end, has not been happier. On the road back was we so fond that we had taken ourselves here, very hoarse of all singing.
