  1. Hi There! I was just wondering around Google and found your blog. You might be interested in some confirmation about the Eden Salon in Berlin. I was a student between 1966 1nd 972 at the Free University. I wanted some extra cash and convinced Rold Eden to hireme asa bouncer. I wasabig guy atthat time, Americanwith a Cornelleducation..Whoop-Dee-Doo. I eventually became very friendly with him, managed one of the salons and spent lots of timeinhis Rolls and on thw Wansee on his yacht. Brings back memories. Now that I am a grandPa, married for 49 years and supposidly a upstanding member of thecommunity I cannot leave you my name. The wife doesnot seem to appreciate this aspect of my past
