Hi guys, I am glad to announce with a LOUD FANFARE (or maybe more accurately, a POWER CHORD (IN THE KEY OF A) WITH FULL DISTORTION AND TURNED UP TO ELEVEN), that my diary has again come back on stream!

There has been way too much time between the previous post and this but that is for another day although I assure you that from this month forward, I will be keeping you informed!

With that in mind, I invite you to attend my next gig at Lefteris Kafeneon in Chorio, Symi on the 29th of June, when I will again don my electric guitar and play some songs and music. I am completely un-calloused on the fingertips as a result of having not played since last October also therefore give prior warning for you to expect copious mistakes both musically and lyrically.

I hope to see you there so we can LET'S AGAIN ROCK!!

Please see the just posted poster image for the gig on 29th June here.

30/06/19The gig went brilliantly and there were many people in the audience and they were certainly right up for it.

I had an issue earlier in the day just before I went down to the venue, when I picked up the guitar and took severe cramp in my left hand. This is not something that filled me with huge confidence and I really thought there was a very strong chance I would have to finish earlier than I had planned. My source of worry was averted though, as thankfully, the consumption of three bananas and three bottles of water semi-remedied things and I was able to get through!
