Great gig last night; excellent music, humour and very entertaining with a good crowd. Sadly no C.D's for sale but the joy of being up close and able to chat with Si Nichols reinforces my belief that stadium gigs are a waste of time. I decided a long time ago to stick with small gigs where you can see the performer.My step-daughter saw springsteen copyist bon jovi at the KC stadium the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it. The thought of thousands of people, the stage a mile away and the car park afterwards....done that and I can no longer be arsed. A small venue, good beer, good mates and an excellent band / performer = Great night out.A mixture of serious music with a scattering of funny songs including the usual ones about his penis, sperm donars, etc...
Lots of beer was consumed so today will be low key with plenty of lime sodas.The dog has already had a long walk today and I wore the wrong shoes...Blisters!Plenty of other dogwalkers out including a Basset Hound.

I haven't seen a Basset Hound in years and yes, they still look odd. He certainly piqued some interest in Muttley who was fascinated by him. The other enjoyable part of todays walk was the amount of fish in the local river. Lots of small things (piscatorial expertise to the fore),several large carp and one large pike. Plus the usual assortment of take-away wrappers,etc..Fascinating to look at this underwater world so far removed from our everyday world. Just the one angler near a bridge and a long way from the fish I saw.
I'm off for more lime soda so TTFN.

I agree with you on the intimate gigs over stadium debate.

The quasi-sister-in-law paid a small fortune for VIP tickets for the Directors' Box at KC last week, and she'd done the same thing in Manchester a few weeks before.

Not my cup of tea at all.

They could put lookalikes on the stage and the audience could be none the wiser.
Miming along...
