I'm a King Bee

Just a friendly reminder to pop-over to Jordan's Journey for a visit, to encourage and reassure this great family. Thanks.

I had a sleepless night again the night-before-last, so I made myself two classic Rolling Stones mix 'tape' CD's for myself. This is my absolute favourite Stones'-era music-wise, their early 60's years. If it were possible, this is the sort of music I'd want to play in a band these days. But realistically it's just not gonna happen (sigh). But their late 60's period was amazing as well. I've already made myself a mix 'tape' CD of that era a few years ago! heh heh.01 Come On

Band rehearsal last night was practically a non-event, with Julian having to cancel at the last moment due to exhaustion (and that's fair enough! After driving like a 12-hour+ day, the last thing you'd wanna do is go out again after getting home and having your precious infant daughter crawl all over you! He's a great dad!), and Andrew was a no-show, inexplicably. So Eddie and I managed to run thru a few numbers together, but what we really need is a few good consistent weeks-in-a-row with all of us there to finally nail this bugger down pat! Anyways... at least I'm really happy with my guitar sound. That's a huge plus. Oh... some people fiddle for months and years trying to get their 'sound', but I seem to have acquired mine using my simple set-up almost straight away. Yesss!

Eddie and I got home afterwards and had a good ol' "couple of blokes shooting the breeze over a couple of relaxed beers" until about 11pm. That was relaxing. But he's moved out of here for now, as he's not working here in town for at least the next three weeks. So that's more the pity for me. :(
Peas be with ewe
