St Pat's Day
In answer to the question " Is it possible to play a 13 hour gig on St Patricks Day" I would say, well, yes. Tho it aint't pretty. The last six hours or so will get rather surreal, and , speaking for myself, one needs some serious Melissa Etheridge for the ride home. ( try SKIN and LUCKY )
I can tell you that the pain involved will get bad, but that it will go away after a while, and you will enter a place where there isn't anything much besides set, break , set, break.....At times you will think, food , water, food ,water.....Is that chocolate?
I can tell you that it is your audience who will give you the strenth and the energy to make it, and it is your friends, and the people who come to see YOU, ( you know who you are tonight ) and who stayed with you, that gave you the strenth to make it thru this. They are the ones who made it wonderful, and magic, and weird and wild and wonderful. Who made it possible. I thank you. All of you who where there and with us.
Driving home I had thought of a lot more to say. Now, not so much.
I think I'll call Malena and ask her to sing me to sleep, our Nocturna will be up. And I will get up tomorrow and do another gig, this one four hours.
Walk in the park , that one.
Happy St Pats to you all!
Love and weariness,
