Didn’t publicise here but I did a concert from home on Saturday night. Raised money for musicians union members and amazingly there were several hundred watching. There were viewers in the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Portugal, Ireland and here. That’s only the ones we know for sure. Took some getting used to but it went really well.
Hi Chris, didn't catch it live but listened to it later. Enjoyed the songs and the chat, you were very natural. Very impressed with the technology too. Superb sound quality and live switching between 4 cameras. Must have taken all day to set up the equipment.
Enjoyed that, thanks. Where did you see Townes Van Zandt in Leicester? I think I saw Guy Clark there. It was upstairs in a pub near the snooker hall around 1988. I think they had a series of American Country singer songwriters over a few weeks, that's why I ask? I saw Townes a few years later at the Union Chapel - he looked 'out of it'. Martin

robmc: Well close Keith, I was on roller skates being towed down a hill by my friend on a bike, for extra speed...you can guess the rest

robmc: Dinner break over... Roller skates out from under me, 80s short shorts offering little protection, skin removed from half way up my thighs and both cheeks. Disinfectant stung just a wee bit.

robmc: And to make it worse, half way through my mother applying the disinfectant, my brother and the girl from next door, who we both liked, came in to see the show.

scorpiodog: Rob, you do, you realise, now have to write a song about the incident. With all the embarrassing details.

ocarolan: That'll be a cracking song alright!

NewDave: Ouch. What hurt more, your pride or your legs?

martinrowe: 'Slippin and a Slidin'

robmc: I don't know Paul, it's all still pretty raw... Although, how about 'Nevermind the Buttocks'. Dave, legs and bum definitely hurt more than pride, although my pride still hurt!

scorpiodog: Yes, Rob. I can see you in a Sex Pistols tribute band. Or you could do a Tony Bennett and use "I scraped my arse and banned machismo".

NewDave: Or you could do the Sarah Brightman classic, I lost my arse to a starship trooper.

robmc: Interesting suggestions, I'll work on my own magnum opus and simply call it 'Skidmarks'
Aug 6, 2020 22:00:22 GMT
scorpiodog: What? Like "Underpants is theft"? Or "The means of defecation must be in the hands of the proletariat"? Oh, sorry, no. That's Skidmarx.
