Hello, With these words we would just like to convey all our overwhelmed thanks to all of you who not only considered, but also sent us two autographed pictures. We are deeply grateful and humbled for your compassion. And for the great friendship.
We truly hope there are more RN friends out there who still are considering. You should know you'll really make us unfortunate fellows happy. From the bottoms of our hearts.
With these words we would also like to convey to all of you our deep respect for your hard work - and music.
Wishing you all the best of luck in all your projects! Hoping to hear from you soon.

From the blog of http://www.reverbnation.com/7l9v9ls:- Just wanted to say thanks for the support... We are glad that our songs mean that much to you guys... Malte and Bengt-ake you guys are the reason that so many get into music... Its like when a song hits you with a force you cant explain , goose bumps appear and you fall right into the music and forget all the bad around you and for the next 4 minutes your in a whole different world. That is why I do what I do... its not the money LOL!!! (what money lol) its the passion and love for music and the escape it offers!!! Thanks guys for all the good vibes!! BIG D (drummer for 7l9v9ls)
Dear masters of great sound,
My name is Malte. I suffer from multiple disabilities, and need help with most things. I spend my days here at this home for the disabled, and there isn't much I am able to do, even though I would love to get outdoors some time. I envy those who do sports. I would have loved to try soccer. Or just walk in the forest. But I am unable.
My greatest sadness was when my parents left me here and I became an orphan. That was some years ago, though. I'm grown up now. Still it hurts me sometimes, my mom and dad was everything to me, I didn't know anything else at the age of 6 when they left me here. I remember I waited, and waited, and waited for them to come and bring me away from this Hell on Earth for a 6 year old. Or just come to give me a hug. But they never showed up since. Not even at birthdays or Christmases. Not even a postcard greeting! Tears come sometime when I see others who live here when they get visitors and and all happy smiles. These things goes for my best friend here, Bengt-Ake, too.
Our lives are not worthy, being more or less paralyzed, getting bedsores, needing assistance with almost everything, it's not at all worthy. It's miserable. No - it isn't. easy to stay strong under such circumstances. If only we would have had the possibility, we would have had commit suicide long time ago.
Music is a good way to lighten our minds up, though. Internet, RN, FaceBook, YouTube and other places are our ways to get out from the darkness, to discover great music, enjoy great music, appreciate the hard work people lay down on their music. When we hear something we really love, we try - depending to our abilities- to contact the people behind that music as much as we can to tell them how much we adore their music. Kindness and warm words spread more kindness and warm words, right?. That's what our Mother Earth need this days.
We pay much respect to all those who devote their lives into making great music. Truly we do. We know it is a lot of labour.
If you'd like to place a smile on the faces, and happiness in the hearts of us two unfortunate fellows, please would you consider to send us two autographed pictures of yours? One for my friend Bengt-Ake, and one for me, Malte. Our personal assistants are kind enough to put any autographed picture we may receive in frames and have them placed on the walls in our private rooms, something for us to enjoy watching, while we listen to your music - music that make us happy. .The frames are in size A4 (8x11") so please try to send us something in that size. If at all possible.
Please let me know if you want something from us in return. We hope you can feel some compassion.

Respectfully yours, Malte.

With these words, we convey all our best and heartfelt greetings and wishes for a very bright future to you, and also to all those you have near your hearts.
Take care & stay cool.
