Back To Bands

I got up at 9.30 am and drove into the Everglades while the others slept. Alligators were out in force all along the road side. Tampa is an early show so we drove directly to the soundcheck. The venue is huge. I cleaned up the blood on my natural strat, and changed the strings on both but the sunburst strat is feeding back really badly. This was probably the worst show of the tour the stage was enormous but there were only about 150 people at the show. My ex-wife Loz was supposed to show up but didn’t make it - just as well at this miserable show. Charlie, Alvin and I were talking to three women in the dressing room when the power went off. The eldest one of the women jumped on Charlie in the dark and started kissing him - we just heard him screaming. The show was over by 9.30 pm. I meet a very nice woman who agreed that we should keep in touch, but we had to drive overnight towards Atlanta. Charlie was completely over the flu, but Dave was feeling really sick, we stopped at a motel around 1.45 pm.
