I catch Krissy Matthews, 26 year old English-Norwegian guitarist and singer, on his mobile phone on the motorway just before he boarded the ferry from England to Germany. I myself am standing with my car on a supermarket parking lot in Frankfurt. Matthews is on his way to Bonn. In the local club Harmonie the "Rockpalast" will record a concert of his solo band for the "Crossroads" series on 21 March.
eclipsed: Are you more nervous before such gigs than at normal concerts?
Krissy Matthews: Of course. That's why we rehearsed a lot. We are very well prepared and will leave nothing to chance.
eclipsed: Doesn't that contradict what you otherwise offer live? You're often experienced as a free improviser, at least with solos.
