Henrik – familiar to many as the
Procoholic host when Procol Harum played
the 'Beyond the Pale' party at Domus Felix in 2006, following
the Ledreborg orchestral concerts
'Having returned from our journey to California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona I just want to say this: Procoholism is not just an addiction to the wonderful music by Procol Harum: it’s also friendship across borders. We had the opportunity to have lunch with Allen Edelist and family plus Jeremy Gilien. A wonderful time for all spent in an 'English pub' (neutral territory considering it was Danes and Americans meeting). Memories of Ledreborg and other wonderful stories in abundance. On our journey I also caught glimpses of Procol influence in business and Las Vegas (Pandora’s Box and Planet Hollywood): see pictures!'

This was just before the Danes – Laura, Helle and Henrik – had to
leave for Los Angeles International Airport
to fly back to Lejre (they beat the ash-cloud and got home safely).

Adrian, and (far left) Laura from Lejre
