Jamie Mallender, "The Kremlin experience left me feeling really down in the mouth.  I had visited one of the single most facinating places in the world, thinking I was going to be playing a gig, and was left sitting in the wings with a glass of red and a medal I don't understand.  Ok, we were being treated very very well, but I didn't go to Russia to stuff myself with free food, drink wine and kill time.  I'd rather be at home with my family and my local pub if I can't get onstage.  Thankfully, at The Ice Hall in St Petersburg the whole band went onstage.  They only let us (and all the other acts) do 1 song (cut down from 4), but the crowd reaction was immense + for me - those 5 minutes onstage were like gold.  We proved a point.  Of course, by that point I was so wound-up that I wasn't sure what the point was anymore - but whatever it was - we proved it. 
I was very proud to be part of the band that night.  Russia loves this band, and we love Russia."
