"GORDON'S ALIVE!!!" [Thoughts of a frontman, part 8]

September 26, 2016

“Why do you have a little man with you on stage!?” ‘which member of the band were they  talking about?’ thought I, but no it was Gordon – our action man astronaut who sells the merchandise (named after the astronaut Gordon Cooper https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Cooper#UFO_sightings ).

The journey to Doetinchem in The Netherlands was a 6 hour nightmare:  1 odd satnav diversion into a congested flea market; 2 hours queuing on the autobahn with the more elderly passenger in the car in front having to squat to pee in full view; and two steering wheel banging incidents where I lost my rag as we cut it finer than a subatomic particle before eventually missing the record store gig!


Phrase of the day: Where’s Jay?


Rock and roll moment: Jay riding the footplate of Ludwig on the autobahn (average speed 4mph).


Video of the day: live and unplugged in Doetinchem https://youtu.be/lNjsC1gvPeA


Next gig: Weserperle, nr Bremen (banks of the Weser 27th Sept).


More soon.  Rob  #RiversOnTour
