Just arrived at the venue for tonight's show minus two cymbal stands and a drum stool. We think we know what happened to them, but can't be sure. The stage is tiny and so far "Riddum" the English Beat's drummer, has refused to move his gear. Tonight I might have to let him use my kit, of course it's gonna cost him.
Said goodbye to my brilliant mate Big Dave Wiens last night, very emotional. Dave as I stated was on several tours with me and also in my wedding........99.
Dave and Dion drove from San Francisco to be in my wedding. Any man that does that is a true friend, including Erik Noyes...we are all brothers. We have been by each others side all over the world, picked each other up off the floor...I am the one normally getting picked up. These guys are the best men you will ever meet.
The venue tonight is tiny, the strangest booking I think I have ever done. It's gonna be interesting. I need to do laundry and take a shower so bad, also need to clean my teeth...they have that carpet feeling.
