Slade UK in Praha

Slade UK poster on the streets of Prague

Today’s photo is my random, desktop image. I took this on the way back to my Airbnb one night last summer. Slade UK isn’t the real Slade. They are a cover band. I saw the real Slade back in early 1984. They opened for Ozzy at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. The crowd did not like them. They got booed off the stage, and the band took a lot of abuse from the audience. I remember a roll of toilet paper hitting one of the members in the head.

That was the very last time Slade played with all of the original members. Wikipedia describes it as a “warm-up gig”, and says Jim Lea “collapsed in the dressing room” and was “diagnosed with Hepatitis C”.

You aren’t likely to find this part of Prague in any guide books, yet it was one of my favorites. The guy who lent me his place on Airbnb told me about it as a great place for night life. He wasn’t kidding. There were no other tourists that I could see along my Naplavka walk, a stark difference from the thousands milling around the Charles Bridge and Old Town.

What other places do you know in Prague that are really cool and virtually tourist free?

Less than four months and I’ll be returning to Prague. Can’t wait.

I’m looking forward to heading back to Prague this summer.

Iceland is also on my itinerary. Anyone have experience in Iceland? I have two short trips there on my way in and out of Europe. I figure I’ll hang out in Reykjavik on my way in and get away from Reykjavik via a rental car on my way out (two nights). I won’t have time to go all the way around which takes a week or more. So which way should I head–north or south? Any must sees?

Prague sunset

The Vltava is the longest river in the Czech Republic and the heart of Prague. On summer evenings it’s a lovely place to be to watch the sunset with the Bohemian backdrop. On my first couple days in Prague I thought the spectacular building in the background was the castle. It wasn’t until I went over the river on my last full day that I realized it is actually St. Vitus Cathedral. I’m looking forward to going back to Prague this summer.
