R J Forster on Flickr took this. I absolutely love it. Judging by the positions of my hands I think I’m playing the start of “It Could be Me”.
Who’d have thought all those years ago when I bought this album for the first time that just 25 years later you’d be able to day “OK, Google; play Across The Water by Jadis” and you’d get the album streamed without even pressing a single button?
It’s one of my favourite albums of all time. Track 6, The World on Your Side speaks volumes to me.
Google reminded me that I was on tour with Manning doing two gigs over in the Netherlands and Belgium.
So many good memories, although just after this amazing tour was the beginning of the end for me. Manning started to fall apart after this tour. Chris and Kev left; Steve the flute player quit to concentrate on his own band Molly Bloom, and a new old guitarist came in who I didn’t get on with; then my dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer a few months later.
