It's real, and it's spectacular! wink

I'm glad to see it wasn't just me getting caught up in it that night. I only had the Lakewood show to compare it to, and it was great that night in Jersey but the Keswick show topped it.

3. Abdicate (v.), to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach.
4. Esplanade (v.), to attempt an explanation while drunk.
5. Willy-nilly (adj.), impotent.
6. Negligent (adj.), describes a condition in which you absent-mindedly answer the door in your nightgown.
7. Lymph (v.), to walk with a lisp.
8. Gargoyle (n.), olive-flavored mouthwash.
9. Flatulance (n.) emergency vehicle that picks you up after you are run over by a steamroller.
10. Balderdash (n.), a rapidly receding hairline.
11. Testicle (n.), a humorous question on an exam.

Feeling better again. Yesterday I had a horrible cold and slept through most of the day (starting from after I played Jethro Tull's A Passion Play) and didn't wake up until about 10:00pm in the evening. I'm not 100% better, but being better than yesterday is definitely good enough for now.

Even though the whole thing’s pretty meaningless, it still raises a smile that Chic are still last in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame fan poll, below even the Paul Butterfield Band (who? huh)

You don't have Steve Hackett's track, Comin' Home To The Blues then? grin

Steve also covered 2 of the songs from their debut album on his "Blues with a feeling" album, that track itself being one of them.

Coming home from an awesome band gig. This is the playlist we performed:

1. Burn (Deep Purple)
2. Kashmir (Led Zeppelin)
3. Carry on my wayward son (Kansas)
4. Soldier of Fortune (Deep Purple)
5. Gates of Babylon (Rainbow)
6. Sail away (Deep Purple)
7. Hush (Deep Purple)
8. With a little help from my friends (Joe Cocker)

It was 4 bands in a row, we were number 3.

Number 1 was a 16-year old vocal prodigy girl who performed the likes of Amazing Grace, Oh happy day, Mercy by Duffy, Daft Punk's Get Lucky and a couple other current pop songs, all transformed into ballad style; her only accompaniment was a friend of her dad's on the guitar, he kept messing up over and over while she kept on shining her voice nonetheless. Also her dad came on stage on dueted Oh Happy Day with her and he, well, embarrassed himself with his performance while she still shone. Very impressive singing ability and cool stage performance from her side but she sang each song in the same soft-pop way.

Number 2 was a band that cancelled because the singer was unwell; so one of his bandmates recruited his other band to jump in. Oh Lordy, how they sucked. A singer that sang like a factory worker, a guitarist that didn't seem to know a guitar requires to be tuned before played - he left stage 3 times (!) to get another guitar as all his guitars were "broken" -, a drummer that stamped the bass drum like a marching drum through all songs, and the suckiest song selection ever. Awful.

Number 3: us. Though we had the few little messups that define any live performance when it's your turn on stage (How many bridges has Kashmir before verse 2? Hey, we got it perfect in the rehearsal recently! Really!...Oookay... laugh ) we rocked it - it was nice to see how it took us just 3 songs to fill the place the other band had emptied. smiley

Number 4: Definitely an awesome band too, they were heavy on the blues rock side and they were really really good.

So yes, it was a splendid night smiley cool
