We met Dan Aykroyd under the most unusual circumstances! A fellow Canadian and musician, we met Dan at his lake house in Ontario on our first tour with Amaranthe. We crossed the border in the wee hours of the morning, coming back into Canada and we all fell back to sleep in the Crystal Skull Vodka bus. As some may know, Dan Akyroyd owns Crystal Skull Vodka and he was kind enough to let us use his bus for our tour. What we didn’t know, was that the bus driver took a detour while we were all fast asleep…to Dan’s house in lake country just outside of Toronto. The bus stopped, we continued to sleep, until we hear all of this commotion and someone shaking us to get up. Dan Aykroyd was on the bus waking us up and asking us all to come in for breakfast and then go for a swim. Dans whole family was there, his wife and children, and one of his daughters was the same size as me and lent me a swimsuit. Dan had gear for the guys and we all went for a swim! His wife Donna was very kind, and so gracious to host us and then come swimming with us.
Dan really loved my tattoos, he grabbed my arm and was checking out my dream catcher. He wanted to know the meanings behind each tattoo from all of us in the band that had ink.
