Glasgow is cancelled… for us anyway. I’m dubious… I think we were invited on this tour originally for ME. Director of CRS = Good gig in Sheffield = Local knowledge of hotels = less stress… (but not for me). I reckon we won’t play Dudley either… but as I told Steeev yonks ago, I alwaysContinue reading “Don’t rush out of bed…”
I finally got in well after dark o’clock and realise how tired I am now. Got up this morning and did a spectacular poo, and then had a good long soak in the jacuzzi before going shopping for some new strings and square batteries. Rotherham looked nice – had a Greggs pacifier. All the coloursContinue reading “Oh my god… was that us?”
The first time I can write in my journal at last, and guess what – it was great. Steve’s voice was excellent, and we all played well. Danny Vaughn stood at the side of the stage while we played Love’s a Battle and the old drummer was welling up. I expected a flood…. Tony MarshallContinue reading “At last!”
Astounded at the unprofessional thoughtless attitude of some bands. Firehouse – 2 hours soundcheck, 10 minutes on the KICK DRUM. I say no more but they wonder why no bugger wants these gigs?. Vaughn – 30 minutes soundcheck – great! Pride – 10 minutes whinging about not being able to hear the guitars… and theyContinue reading “Doors… but no doors…”
The yanks are stressing me… I’ve got Kieran on my back demanding 110 volt power supplies… and their soundcheck has just started LATE. Stressed… me? Never! Ah fub them, they’re only septics!
Finally after 6 months in the planning, the big tour has arrived! – Today Sheffield, Thursday Glasgow and Sunday JB’s. Just about to set off to the Corporation. I’m sure it’ll be good.
Done at the bash, it was cool as always and the food was dead nice. Had a great view of Kensington Palace from the hotel room window. The train ride home was annoying – headache determined I sat in the quiet car, and was promptly joined by two annoying young women who obviously could notContinue reading “The bash is done… Brian Wilson??? hmmm….”
We went and did the “meet & greet” with Firehouse and Vaughn. A little place in Nottingham tacked onto the back of Rock City but very cool nonetheless. The security were knobs of the highest order… kicking everyone out at 11pm even though the room was supposed to be booked till 12 midnight. I thenContinue reading “Nottingham”
