Kev’s Tale of two Cities

Hello Cafe Cremers, I’ve just returned from my musical adventures back in dear old Blighty, and would like to share some photos with you. for the full story of my trip, and more photos, please visit my blog

Kev couldn\'t help noticing the dressing room lacked a certain charm.....

Kev couldn’t help noticing the dressing room lacked a certain charm…..

Backstage, no expense was, er…spent on making sure the artistes were comfortable…

At this level of the business, artists can get anything their hearts desire, plus these sandwiches….

Kev spent several moments idly wondering when the seven dwarves would return home to claim their beds….

I’m not playing that, it hasn’t got OUR name on it!!….Pete contends with more drums than sense.

  1. Life on the road. It must be hard on a person I think. But then again if you love what you’re doing there must be a counter feeling that brings a balance to it all. I don’t know but curious.

  2. I like the pictures of the sandwiches. Something about the triangles makes me smile.

  3. 🙂 I’m wondering if its a subliminal reference to the classic scene in “This is Spinal Tap” where Christopher Guest as Nigel Tufnel, guitarist, picks up an open sandwich from a tray provided backstage and complains that he has to fold it to create a “real” sandwich, but he will do it because “he’s a professional!”

  4. Michael, its ALL about trying to achieve a balance, and it’s really a very simple equation. almost ANY negative vibes surrounding the shows, i.e. travel hassles, bad accomodation, etc. will be outweighed if the gig delivers. When the gig delivers, that feeling of it running like a well-oiled machine, knowing each song will urge the audience to greater excitement, knowing you’re supremely confident in the guys around you, knowing it sounds good, that is the high that transcends all problems.

  5. ooh.. such extravagant means for Kev.. that should be a crime!
    did you get your fish and chips then? or were you super frugal with those free sandwiches?

  6. I abstained from the catch of the day Supe, and believe me, abstaining from the sandwiches was not difficult! An English breakfast, however, did pass my lips in Great Yarmouth….what can I say?
