The Hives skänker bort turnévan
The Hives är ett av de band i Sverige med absolut flest gig under bältet vilket inneburit otaliga timmar på resande fot ihopträngda i mini-van. 1998 införskaffade Hives en 1986 års modell Dodge B250 Ram Van som döptes till ”RAV-Rock Assault Vehicle” som sen tog dem Sverige och Europa runt under många år. På senaste tiden har dock RAV-vanen fått vila i Fagersta och nu skänker bandet bort denna unika bit rock-historia.
Hugade intressenter får höra av sig till bandet via the Hives Facebook-sida med en motivering till varför de bör få vanen, så här skriver bandet själva;
The RAV giveaway!
In the year 1998 The Hives bought a white 1986 Dodge B250 Ram Van. This machine was given two names, RAV as in Rock Assault Vehicle and Van as in Van Morrison. It then took this merry band of Hives rockers around Europe clocking in some 40 000 km in the following decade. It underwent some mild customization during this time and turned into the beast it is now. It has been unbelievably functional, comfortable and lovely all through its service. Today our old trusty friend is tired and needs love, support and attention that we cannot provide.
