Rollover Beethoven! The great Rocker himself takes a legendary crowd-surf off the stage in Stern-Strasse. It’s a little known fact that the young Ludwig was a huge fan of Lemmy, and his deafness at a young age was actually attributed to playing ‘Ace of Spades’ for hours on end. Eventually, his parents bought him a piano – and the end of a career in heavy metal became the start of something quite different…
Oh man, this was one of the best floats in the parade. The best part was, the head on the Beethoven figure was (intentionally?) a little wobbly. As it drove past us in the Altstadt, Beethoven seemed to be…. headbanging! 😀
Ha!Ha! Headbanging indeed.
I liked that if you kept your head down below the people in front he seemed to be crowdsurfing too 🙂
