Lady Awa de Paysant

Today we, once again in what I’d consider a quite short time, recieved bad news regarding the band. We learned that our very beloved keyboardist, Lady Awa has decided to leave the band.

I don’t really know where to start with this. Awa, Awa, Awa…. Where do we begin.

Awa was actually the first member of Lordi I ever saw – when I was entering Eurovision’s official website, the first thing that caught my eye was Awa (Arockalypse era) and she SCARED ME. To death. And from that moment I hated Lordi. For like, a week. And because of this, she became my first favorite member, even though my love for Kita would grow stronger, I never really let go of this lovely lady.

I got to meet her for the very first time in September 2006, and that is one of my fondest memories. After Kita and I was “done” so to speak, and my friend was busy with OX (hahaha) she walked up to me and, in Swedish surprisingly (Yeah, I know she speaks Swedish, but it still surprised me!) and asked me if I lived in Gothenburg and that she really liked the town. I just nodded. SO CORNY, but the fuck, I was fangirling on the inside and didn’t know what to say to her. At least she took her time, and god how I love her for that.

Sadly, this is the only REAL memory I have of her. Sure – I met her twice after this, but we didn’t interact much more than a simple hug and exchanging (insecure) looks at each other. Never the less, I found her to always be very polite and kind to one another.

I can honestly say, that even though she didn’t have the biggest part in the shows, I’ll miss her. I kinda liked the fact she wasn’t so overexposed, that she had her little moment with “The Rebirth of the Countess” or the umbrella pre-Deadache. She was a talented musician, and in all honesty, she wasn’t the one I’d expect to leave in the first place.

However, I do respect her decisions, and I understand them. I wish her ALL the luck to whatever she does in the future, and she’ll always be close to me heart, a dead countess or not. I love you always, Lady Awa.

And, sadly, you know the drill by now. Now is the point were I want ALL Of you readers to write down your memories, feelings, get out your aggression, points of view, well ANYTHING regarding Awa. If you’ll miss her, how much you love her… yeah you get it!
