Farewell 2013!

 Two Thousand and Thirteen. (thought I’d posted this ages ago) So all in all I managed thirty gigs at twenty three venues over the year; Little Feat, Steven Wilson, The Magic Band (Preston), The Magic Band (Glasgow), The Magic Band (Edinburgh), John Shuttlesworth, The Specials, Twobular Bells, The Who, Neil Young, Van der Graaf Generator, Ensemble musicFabrik, The Soft Machine Legacy, Roger Waters, Danny Elfman, Acid Mothers Temple, Phosphene, North Mississippi Allstars, Ozric Tentacles, The Moscow Ballet, Kaleidoscope, Zappa Plays Zappa, Bob Dylan (Tuesday), Bob Dylan (Wednesday), the Stockhausen show, the jazz Rite of Spring, Ian McNabb and last but certainly not least The Magic Band again in London. With Shields accompanying me to all but four of these, my wallet is now just over a thousand quid lighter on tickets alone (that’s forgetting all about InterCity fares, hotel rooms, taxis, petrol, meals and drinks). The writer then holds a lighter aloft, slowly sits down at a handy piano and very quietly sings the chorus to his latest opus ‘Rock ‘n’ roll, you made a pauper outta me!’
