We’ve done 4 concerts since my last blog (2019-58). It’s not always been vintage performances and some of the song choices have been a little bland; the lower audience numbers seem to reflect the current issues. We have lost quite a number of the more competent guys. It’s ddifficult for me to to muster the energy to get involved. I did turn up for the last 3 or 4 weeks prior to the concert we did last week; it was enough.
I really do miss playing with some of the guys I used to work with prior to prison. When your really cooking, there’s almost a psychic connection between the musicians; call it musical intuition. You just shut your eyes and go with wherever the music takes you…
Be happy, be safe.
