I'm really really glad that he's found himself a new bunch of muso's to play with [when he's able to!] - a few local much-older guys who are very talented, playing a whole swag of 70's covers [it's not material I'd personally be too happy to play week-after-week, but if he's happy, that's the main thing]. They're aiming to play the wedding/function-type gigs, and I'm sure they'd be great at it too. I'm slightly envious, as I really miss playing with him. But of course I'm really happy for him. It also doesn't mean that we cannot link-up again musically down the track either. It just wasn't the right time now, as he's been [and will continue to be] very busy aside from playing music - understandibly.
I told him all about the solo music I'm performing and recording, and he was very excited and positive about it all for me, which bought a sigh of relief for me. I knew he's be OK with me going off doing my own stuff, but I sure miss having him there to bounce ideas off with as well.
On the home front [apart from being a classic on-going overcast cold mid-winter...] right now I'm slow-cooking a huge pot of delicious home-made vegetable soup, that'll keep me filled for the next two days at least. Yum. Undergoing the trails of on-going chronic diarrhea is no fun... so some pure and natural input will help in that regard.
I'm traveling back upto Mt Victoria (Blue Mountains) tonight to play a short music playing spot, like I did last week. Looking forward to it... but trying to decide which three original songs to perform can be a challenge, when there's at least 12 of my own 'ditties' I'm pretty happy with performing live at the moment! A mate and I are driving up and back together this evening, so it'll be good to have a bit of company on the hours' drive each way. Oh... and I've had to set myself a cut-off-limit of 50 cover songs to play for now! That's more than copiously enough to play four-hours-worth of performance time anywhere.
The mixing and editing will take a good month as it is as well [apart from the actual recording], so that's why I'm aiming for an end-of-August release date - it takes some serious TIME when you're doing everything on your own!
