First post-therapy gig . . . .

So after two months of NO GIGS or Rehearsals: I was really looking forward to tonight. Since Guido the bass player is in Germany we did rehearsals with Alessandro a great keyboard player: three two hour rehearsals left me exhausted but ready and keen. But today it started snowing: we checked with the venue an hour before leaving and it all looked clear….. yeah it was,  however when we were half way along the superstrada heading west : some flares and two stern carabinieri diverted everybody off the motorway onto the significantly more treacherous side roads. Deciding to stop to check the map, we slithered to a halt, and were joined by a GINORMOUS TRUCK which slithered to a threatening position along side us. Having done a few too many tail wiggles on the way to the gig: my fear/hope was that it would not happen.   We agreed to set a different date, and set off hoping to find the superstrada open heading eastwards. NO! They sent us all off on the same damn exit, but this time we had to climb a steep hill with the car wiggling its arse like a gogo dancer – for those of us who can remember those. Mamma mia!!

So eventually after 3 hours of tense driving in which we covered about 50 miles we got home to a chilled beer and warm soup……

Yes life is back to normal . ..  my ‘normal’ that is….
