# Is your band called blue haze because the camera for the publicity shots was bad in poor light?
Sorry about your friend....

I was hoping for an mp3 on the site though, I love live bands with good guitar.

I recently walked into a bar (ouch) near my place on the way home for a quick scoop and there was a band setting up. (a bunch of guys in their late 40s early 50s) I had no idea who they where or even that the pub had bands on but they where an amazing 4 piece guitar band, ended up sat there watching them all night, The place only had about 5 people in and I seemed to be the only person who applauded whenever they finished a song... They did a load of old quo songs, The best rendition of "Jessica" I have ever heard live (theme from top gear people!) And they where all really nice down to earth guys, they actually all came over and thanked me for staying!

I need to get out and see some more live music...

Put some mp3s up!

# We will soon.
We are going in the studio for a week soon. Our guitarist is pretty special. He just got over a heart attack and now he's better than ever. We're all pretty old and doing it for the fun although we did main support to Simple Minds last year at a festival. That was proper fun that was.
EDIT: Thanks. My friend died trying to save his brother from drowning, he just couldn't let go :( 17 and 22. He was my also my roadie with the band and my minder at comedy gigs as I do tend to upset hecklers. Hit me fucking hard that did.

# That's so sad, A waste of 2 lives, but such an honourable and brave way to go.

# He was an amazing bloke.
He had a young son too. He was a professional heavyweight wrestler of travelling stock but a proper decent bloke. I'm off now, we've got a couple of the Stranglers coming to see us tonight so best get there and set up early. Laters :)

# I have done loads of gigs like that
My final ones were in a resteraunt on a sunday afternoon. Sometimes there were no customers in at all but I had to sing anyway for the staff in order to get paid (Free meal, all I could drink and £20 for a taxi). Great days.
