Hi Olga, Wondering if brazilian fans will have the privilege again to have an ‘Autograph Afternoon’ before the show on September 25th. And if the Answer is “YES”, where it will be? Thanks a lot for your attention, you cannot imagine how brasilian people loves you man - God Bless You Always you and all from the band. Best Regards
I guess this is a bit late to answer your question! Anyway, there was
no time before the shows this time for an autograph afternoon! Bit of
a hectic schedule! I hope you enjoyed the show anyway! We had a great
Hi, Olga! First of all I have to say that I'm almost reaching a dream: see Toy Dolls playing here, in my city (Porto Alegre, Brazil). I'm a huge fan of you and I'll bring my first Toy Dolls cd (the first one of you, coincidentally) - hoping that you guys can sign and take a picture with me - to the show. I started to play inspired by you, nowadays, I have a rock'n'roll band www.myspace.com/estiveraivoso and you are a part of it as an inspiration. So, there's what I want to ask is: when I was starting to play guitar - and 'til now - you, Brian Setzer and Stevie Ray Vaughan were my guitar heroes, but who are/were your guitar heroes? And in which ways do you see their influences on your way to think the music and play? Cheers, hope to talk with you at 23th, november! Renato Judz.
Renato Did we manage to sign your CD? I hope so! I hope you enjoyed
the gig in Porto Alegre, We loved it. Chuck Berry was a big influence
on me, Wilko Johnson from Dr Feelgood too. Wilko especially with the
lead/rhythm guitar playing combined.

Hello, my name is Yamila I have 19 years'm Argentina and wanted them to know that I loved the show that you maked 2 days ago, but I found something that has happened because the public was confused because we did not know if it ended there, or if You would continue with the show. my question is if they had had some problems you and if you were satisfied, because you know that here in Argentina you are very dear Toy Dolls! anyway the show was beautiful and I really hope you are happy with the public. I hope you can understand this message because my English is not very good sorry from already thank you very much for a great show I wish you luck and hope to see you again! thank you, Yamila.
Yamila! Thank you, we loved the show too! Unfortunately at the end the
power for the Sound system broke! So we couldn't come back on for a
3rd encore! Never mind, we loved being there. Thank you for coming.
Hello Olga!!!!! Last Sunday I went to see Toy Dolls in Buenos Aires and I can say that I was astonished, excellent show! I saw the face of happiness of the public.

Hi! i'm Marcial from Argentina, the show last sunday, was excellent!!!.
After the show ended, we stayed with a friend, waiting for you to leave
the place, Unfortunately, I did not take a picture with you, but I got
your autograph!, thank you very much for that. I told you, (while
you signed that paper) that with my band, Degenerativa, recorded
a cover version of Lambrusco Kid, and I sent it to the address
it says on the website, and you said that you were going to chaque ;)...bye.
A BIG FAN OF YOURS---- PD: lately I've been communicating with Enapou

singuer and guitar player of Poni-Camp, you still you keep contact with
the girls of Lolita no.18?

hearing it! Unfortunately I haven’t heard from the other members
of Lolita no 18 for a long time, only Ena! Shes a very talent musician!
And a lovely person.
Hello Olga, I hope you had a good flight back from Brasil. Firstly congratulations for one more excellent show here in Curitiba. It's interesting how people are happy during the Toy Dolls concert, a friend of mine said he watched a lot of smiles in the people’s faces, me too. My question is about the choice of songs that make up the set list. What is the criterion for choosing the songs? I noticed that some classics were left out like Back in 79, Yul Brinner and Dig That Groove Baby and others that I heard live for the first time: Harry's hands, Ashbrooke and Camilla. The setlist for the tour is discussed or voted with Duncan and Tommy or do you choose the songs? I also noticed that were not performed songs from One More Megabite and Anniversary Anthems, why? These discs, some songs are really good as Dorkamania, One More Megabite, Charlie's, She's a Leech that are my favorites. Waiting there for the next tour! Cheers, Fernando.
Fernando! Thank you for that, Curitiba was really wild! I usually work
out the set list, then sometimes they change slightly at rehearsals
with Duncan and Tommy. Songs are usually choosen work with the previous
and following songs in the set, rhythms, tempos etc. We have played
Shes a Leech on past tours, She'll be back with Keith also, and tracks
from Anniversary Anthems! Maybe next time in Brazil tracks from these
albums will appear for you!
Dear Olga, I'm from Brazil and I seem to notice a pattern regarding gender preference in two songs of the toy dolls (at least in my country). Girls tend to love "Olga, I cannot", while boys preffer "Glenda and the test tube baby". Have you ever noticed it? Is it true in other countries? Why do you think that happens? Also, last week I could see the TD show at São Paulo. It was awesome! Despite the problems with the lambrusco bottle (pitty, it would have been a great visual). Not sure if you remember me, I was the obnoxious kid at the front door by the end that kept saying in english "OH MY GOD, GOOBER IS SUCH AN AWESOME BASSIST, OLGA SHAKE MY HANDS THAT WAS A FUCKING GREAT SHOW! CHECK THE SALES GUY OUT, HE HAS A COLERA T-SHIRT!". Good times... sadly I lost Duncan, I love his other band SNUFF. goodbye, lot's of health man.
Well spotted! This is the case in many countries! No idea why however!!Sao
Paulo was great, yeah, problems with exploding Lambrsuco bottles in
South America! Tommy Goober will be happy to read this! And the sales
guy is a big Colera fan, they played with us decades ago, great band,
Shame you didn't catch up with Duncan, Snuff rock!
Hey there. Can you tell me the way to the fountin of youth please
Sir? jolly good
***k I miss your gig here in Brazil. Always wanted to see yiu guys but this very time my little baby girl was born at the same week you guys came to play. I’m 38 now but when I hear you guys it’s like I am into full power again! Hope you guys came back again! Take care and thanks for all the great songs! Silvio
Hi, So sorry you missed the show, but congratulations anyway! Lets hope
you can get there next time around!
Hello Olga, The Toy Dolls have been my favorite band since 1987 when my friend Brian played “James Bond Lives Down Our Street” for me at a track and field competition. I was shocked that such perfect music existed on this planet. On another note I just got my first Telecaster after years of playing a Les Paul and a Gretsch and it is amazing. Is there a better guitar than the telecaster? I think not. If you play anywhere in the U.S. Brian and I will be there, I promise! Looking forward to the new album, Gyver
Gyver, Wow, James Bond, that takes me back! Hardly perfect though! But
thank you! The Telecaster is a guitar you really have to play, it certainly
takes work, but the more you put in, the better the rewards.
Hey Olga, I'm Leonardo from Brazil, and the Toy Dolls concert here in Porto Alegre on 09/23/2010, it was very exciting for me, really unforgettable, I really hope to see you here again next year, tune, l cannot die without see the Toy Dolls playing here again. Hope to see you again next year. Hugs from one of its thousands of Brazilian fans Leonardo Chaves
Hey! Nice to know you enjoyed Porto Alegre, we did! That venue is a
really good one! Hope to see ya next time.
