Well im back on the road and it the sun is shining, so all isnt bad! After the promo trip Ryan and I done at the start of the month, I had 1 week of to sort my life out before I left and it just wasn’t enough time….ive left everything behind me and I have packed the most ridiculous pile of C**P that I possibly could have but sure hi….. “Rock n Roll!”
Only good thing is I have a week to chill out and have a few laughs before the real hard work starts to begin!!! So I had a day of in NY and now im heading to philly for a few days, so im...
Sitting on the train here after having a nice show and good sushi in St.Louis, and on my way to Kansas I thought I’d write another blog for you guys!!!
Soooo Glasgowbury 2010 eh?!?!? For all of you who could make it, I hope you had a BLAST, (I know I did) and thanks for coming and showing your support… it was the most fun ive had playing at a gig in a long time and fair play to the band, the boys played a blinder considering some of them only had a day to learn the songs!!! And not forgetting the beautifull Rebecca harkin…you played a blinder too on those...
Sorry i havnt been on here in a while i just kinda got lost in a million & one other things over the past few months with moving house and recording and celtic thunder stuff...i have been busy to say the least......
So im on the bus now heading to see a good friend in Phily, its has been a hectic few days that we have all just went through....
We done a huge gig for the Rotary club up in Montreal which was class we sung to over 30, 000 people in one day and it went down a treat!
Howdy ya'll, i hope that you are all behaving per usual and not doing anything that I wouldn't do!!!
I've been kept busy the past few week's doing anything and everything, to stay active. I wrote quite a cool wee tune last night on my 12 string fender, there is a class sound outa it and I'm glad i own it. It's funny sometimes when you lift a different guitar and just get a completely different buzz outa it and write a style of song that you wouldn't normally, (well thats my excuse for owning all those guitarz!!!)!
Well to start id just like to say if the blog about the radio interview is still at the bottom of the screen its because i cant get rid of it and it wont go away!.... if it is on the other hand and is away.... HAPPYDAYS!
The new show just got released and I hope you are all enjoying it and the new tracks, I only heard them today myself, and they sound great.... well done to all the lads on a great job!
I've been getting up to loads the past week or so... painting, soldering, surfing, changing windscreens on 38 year old VW bugs, ripping up carpets and writing a few...
"I hope that you have all settled into the New Year as swimmingly as i have, the surf really wasn't much to talk about from the time i got home, but the New Year has had more than enough tasty swells for myself and my mates to freeze our wee toe's off in!!!"
"Its good to be home, it always takes at least a month i've now found to get your head back into normal life after touring, its just a different world when your on the road! As some of you already know i have created a studio @ home now so thats been keeping me pretty busy, also i've been writing...
I wish to send my thanks and appreciation for the beautiful blanket I received. I am overwhelmed with your generosity and kindness and the many hours of hard work put into it. It has taken pride of place in my home. I really love it. Also thanks to all the people for the lovely gifts and good wishes, and for the great support you gave my darling grandson Keith and the sweetest grand-daughter Rebecca. May I wish you and yours all the peace and happiness in this New Year.
