20 Years & Out - Thinny's Farewell Tour Blog

Thursday 2nd July, 16:47

It’s going to be one of those tours....

On the 5 and a half hour train journey to Glasgow my phone suddenly decides to die on me. Fortunately it came back to life a few hours later. I am now in Manchester sitting in my hotel room frantically trying to get my laptop to turn on. Nothing. It’s dead. No power, no lights, no nothing. Dead. Great....

Pen and paper it is then. Hopefully this tour diary will find you somehow...

Ok, so here we are at the beginning of the end. Where better to start than in Glasgow? And man, was it a hot one!! Even before the doors had opened it was insanely hot in the venue. Once it was full of people it was just unbearable. Still, the heat didn’t deter anyone from having a fantastic time and from the moment that the doors were opened there was a certain buzz in the air. Logan opened the show with a great set. I wasn’t familiar with their material at all, but a lot of the crowd seemed to be. They impressed me and I will certainly check them out again in Manchester.

So the time came when Thunder would take to the stage in Glasgow one last time. As soon as the opening bars of Thunderstruck were heard from the PA system, the crowd erupted. LOUD? You can say that again! I’m not sure I’ve never heard an audience so loud (but didn’t I say that last time we were in Glasgow as well!?). The rest of the shows have a lot to live up to already. The set consisted of a handful of greatest hits alongside band and fan favourites. Grown men were seen with tears in their eyes during ‘Like A Satellite’ and ‘A Better Man’ and I think the reality that it was almost all over for the Scottish fans really hit home during the intro to ‘Dirty Love’. Danny left the stage with a ‘Thanks for 20 amazing years, but we have to go now...’ and I think even he seemed a little overwhelmed by it all. And this is only the beginning....

The meet and greet was full of hot, wet sweaty bodies, which made for an interesting (?) aroma, but it didn’t matter. There was a hint of sadness, but everyone had had a great time judging by all the smiles on all the faces.

So we bid our farewell to Glasgow, got back on the bus and drove overnight to Manchester which is where we are now. Day off today so lots of shopping and/or relaxing for the band and crew and then out for a meal tonight. Tomorrow’s show at the Academy promises to be even hotter than Glasgow. Joy...

The Thin Too Hot For Clothes One...


Friday 3rd July, 14:14

Ok so we are now back stage at the Academy and thankfully things have cooled down, although it is all a bit miserable and wet. Be careful what you wish for I guess. We eventually gave up on trying to revive my poor laptop and I now have a brand spanking new one thanks to Danny, so we are back in business! So all is well...for now.....

Looking forward to tonight’s show....will probably next report back from Sheffield tomorrow! Have fun til then...

The Thin Back In The Saddle One...


Sunday 5th July, 13:33

Apologies for no diary update yesterday...things have been more than a little hectic here. Ok, so let’s rewind a couple of days....

Photographer Marty Moffatt has now joined the tour. This is his first experience touring on a bus with a band, so we’ve promised to ease him in gently! Haha, yeah right. Poor guy... ;)

Manchester was just a little hot again, although not quite as bad as Glasgow. The sold out crowd went completely mad from start to finish. I had a little goosebumps on the arms moment during ‘Low Life’ – that was the first Thunder song that I ever heard back in 1992 and started me off on the road that led to here. It’s always been a special song for me for that reason and tonight’s performance of it was probably one of the best I’ve ever seen. Poor old Scampi (our lighting god) is almost in tears every night during ‘A Better Man’...I think it’s safe to say he’ll be a blubbering mess by Hammersmith.  It was fantastic to hear some lesser played tracks tonight, such as ‘Englishman’, ‘Love Worth Dying For’ and one of my favourite ever Thunder songs ‘Just Another Suicide’. Changing the set list every night really makes everything so much more exciting for the multiple gig attendees, and I’m so glad that they decided to do it on this tour to make it that extra bit special. The meet and greet was very busy tonight and I met some old friends, made some new ones and almost had to escort my Dad out of the building for being drunk and disorderly. Tut tut I can’t take him anywhere...

Ok, so an overnight bus ride all of 40 miles to Sheffield followed. The next morning was not pleasant...actually the afternoon wasn’t pleasant, I slept through the whole morning. I tried to start my tour diary but the hangover was a little too much so I decided I’d be better off leaving it until my head had cleared a little. Another sold out crowd. I’m always impressed with how enthusiastic they are here, for a seated venue. A band like Thunder are not really best suited to seats, but that never seems to matter in Sheffield. Last night was no exception...

As you will have heard by now the show is “pyrotastic” this time around and there was a bit of a scary moment when one of the Pyros set Ben’s monitor on fire. Some poor roadie managed to pat the decent sized fire out...with his bare hands....somebody give that guy a raise. Or only let him out with supervision. I’m not sure which. The pyros have been quite interesting so far actually. They set the fire alarms off 3 times during the Manchester show. Thank god the sprinkler system didn’t go off. Actually it might have cooled us all down a little.

Completely different set list again in Sheffield. I was particularly pleased to see the return on ‘Until My Dying Day’, ‘Fade Into The Sun’ and one of my favourite Thunder ballads ‘I’m Dreaming Again’. Sound check was an interesting one as it started with a jam to Michael Jackson’s beat it. The guys have been adding a few instrumental bars of Billie Jean into the middle of Dirty Love at some shows as well, which was kinda cool to hear. Before I forget I must say a big thanks for Fiona for being my sound check archiver for this tour. There’s been a couple of times I’m been off busy doing something, so had to leave Fiona to write down all the soundcheck songs for me.

Meet and greet was once again fun...my Dad was there again, but Mum was there to keep him under control this time. A special mention goes out to Krazy Kat, just because she’s crazy (and to apologise for embarrassing her...sorry), the surprise appearance of a very pregnant McAnnie and to Abigail for being my new super fan. You are more than worthy, unlike your Aunty - she will bow down to me one day! I was supposed to be taking it easy today, but it didn’t happen, surprise surprise (thanks Gillian)....so here we are in Cambridge and yes, with another hangover. But the blog had to be done...hope it made some form of sense. See you at the show!

The Thin Still Trying To Take It Easy One...


Tuesday 7th July, 14:15

Ok so today is Newcastle, but let’s rewind back to Cambridge first.

I think for me the Cambridge set list has been the best yet. It included 3 of my very favourite Thunder tracks ever (‘Moth To The Flame’, ‘Just Another Suicide’ and ‘Don’t Wait For Me’) but unfortunately the past few days all seemed to catch up with me and I was more than a little tired...still, I enjoyed the show and so did every one else by the looks of things. Apparently a certain member of the band got a little bit emotional during ‘Don’t Wait For Me’, but I won’t spill the beans by saying who...*cough*Chris*cough*... ;)

Cambridge Sound Check: Don’t Wait For Me / Welcome To The Party / Moth To The Flame / Stand Up / Loser (beginning) / The Devil Made Me Do It (part) / Dirty Love (end – twice due to pyro test failure) / Pinball Wizard (acoustic intro)
Cambridge Set List: Loser / Welcome To The Party / Higher Ground / Low Life In High Places / Gimme Some Lovin’ / Moth To The Flame / The Devil Made Me Do It / Love Walked In / Stand Up / You Can’t Keep A Good Man Down / Don’t Wait For Me / I Love You More Than Rock ‘n’ Roll Encore: A Better Man / Just Another Suicide / Dirty Love (Including ‘Billie Jean excerpt)

So, we spent our day off in Newcastle yesterday and I spent most of the day recharging my batteries (ie sleeping) until I checked my email and was told that we could confirm Sonisphere. This announcement has made a lot of people happy, but has also upset a few. I won’t go into it here, if you’re interested it’s all on the board. I’ve spent most of my time since then replying to posts and emails on the topic, but all is well, I’m glad that boys are ending things in the U.K. and Knebworth is such hallowed ground that I think it will be very fitting. Can’t wait!

So in the evening we all went out for a big band/crew meal which was very nice and very filling. After the last tour I came home with a much bigger waistline that I went with. I’ve only just managed to lose it in time to put it all back on again for this tour! Oh well, it is the last time!

Towards the end of the evening Danny came over to me and handed me a box stating that “this is for everything you’ve done for us for the past god knows how many years”. Inside was a lovely Victorinox Swiss Army watch. Someone must have noticed that I haven’t been wearing a watch for the last few months, since my last one died. I’m not the emotional sort, but I have to say I got a little choked up. I was lost for words, but I did manage a “Thanks guys”. I think it really hit me at that moment that this was now so close to the end. As I’m sure they know, it’s been an absolute pleasure, from beginning to end. From the moment I started working with the guys over 10 years ago they have made me feel like part of the team, like an equal, asking my opinions about things and actually listening to what I had to say and taking it into consideration. I know that whatever I go on to do in the future it will never compare to my time with Thunder. I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank Danny, Luke, Harry, Ben and Chris for welcoming me into the fold with open arms and allowing me to experience things that I could only have dreamt about when I was 15 and had Thunder posters all over my bedroom wall. Being able to be a part of your favourite bands existence and to be able to call your childhood heroes your friends is something that not many people get the opportunity to do, so I cannot thank them enough for that...

*Sniff* right that’s enough of that...so, as I said, we are in Newcastle today, about an hour away from soundcheck. I will report back from Nottingham tomorrow! Have a good show, everyone that’s coming tonight! I need to go and get a couple of links taken out of my new watch...I only have Skinny wrists...I am Thinny after all...

The Thin Emotional One...


Wednesday 8th July, 14:12

Newcastle was an interesting show to say the least. The Quireboys opened up tonight and were fun as usual. Spike’s hometown crowd seemed to enjoy them. ‘Mona Lisa Smiled’ from their new record sounded great and was the set highlight for me.

Thunder’s performance was eventful right from the first number...the pyro’s at the beginning once again set one of the Monitors on fire, this time Danny’s. Thankfully Ben’s guitar tech Brian (who some of you may know as the bass player in Tygers Of Pan Tang) was on hand to douse the flames....with a towel (not his bare hands). That’s how to do it! Nice one Bri..

A few more surprises were in store tonight....one of my favourite Thunder tracks from one of my favourite Thunder albums ’Amy’s On The Run’ from ‘The Magnificent Seventh’ was back after a long absence and with a brand new ending, ‘Castles In The Sand’ returned (with a twist – this version was much more Piano led than the recorded and previous live versions) and I also had another one of those “goosebumps” moments during a fantastic rendition of the long lost ‘I’ll Be Waiting’. ‘Dirty Love’ got even more extended tonight with the addition of part of ‘Shakin’ All Over’ in the middle, before Danny went for a wander around the audience, which is something I don’t think I’ve ever seen Danny do in the 16 years that I have been coming to see them. It was a nice touch...

The meet and greet was a bit of an emotional one tonight as we said our final goodbyes to the Newcastle fans. There were tears! Poor young Emily almost got me going...

After the meet and greet we had a magician in the dressing room performing a bunch of tricks for us. He works in a local magic shop in Newcastle and was fantastic. Very clever stuff. After that it was off to bed for an overnight ride to Nottingham. I’m sat backstage at Rock City right now, where we apparently have no internet access (boo), as a result this update may have to wait until tomorrow to be uploaded. I’m off to the pub shortly, so I think tonight is going to be a messy one....

The Thin Refreshed And Ready To Go One...


Thursday 9th July, 15:51

See, now THAT’s why I love Rock City. A lot of people slag the place off for being a dive...yes it’s a hot, sweaty, sticky floored rock club, but there’s nothing wrong with that. I’ve been to so many gigs here by so many bands over the years and I have so many great memories attached to the place. Band’s love playing here and always give it their all, the reason for that being that the crowd is always so very up for it! Absolutely mental! They always seem to know every word to every song and last night was no exception! The Quireboys once again got everyone in the mood and Thunder just enhanced that mood ten fold. The highlight for me was an odd one tonight. Now over the past few tours the one song that I’ve taken a toilet break during was ‘Love Walked In’ (Sacrilege I know). Not because I didn’t love the song, but because I’d heard it so much and seen the guys perform it so many times, that I needed a bit of a break from it. I took the time to stay and watch the whole thing tonight and I have to say I was blown away. Dunno what it was about the performance of it tonight, but it just really hit me and made me remember why this is on of the greatest rock ballads ever written! I’ll make sure that I catch it again for the remaining shows!

We had no pyro tonight but instead Scampi had arranged a little surprise for the guys. As ‘Dirty Love’ was about to end, snow began to fall from the ceiling, Santa Clause came out and confetti cannons blasted out into the crowd. Thunder had no idea this was going to happen, but it didn’t take them long to figure out who the culprit was! It was of course a homage to Christmas’ past where Rock City was home to the band’s annual xmas event. It also reminded us that they will sadly be no more!! Boo...

Meet and greet was moved to the rig tonight but it was still rammed. It was great to see Thunder Channel’s very own Lynne Malkin (aka Matron) and Josephine here tonight. A few people got a bit emotional again. Rock City is a special venue for a lot of the fans and the last meet and greet here was a bit much for them. I can understand why...

I think it was pushing 5am when I made it into my bunk this time, but that’s ok, it’s a day off today so I get to relax and get ready to do it all again 2 more times....I’m off for some fresh air... 

The Thin Wandaring Wolverhampton One


Monday 13th July, 8:53pm

Well, I can’t believe the final tour is over already. It feels like just yesterday I got the phone calls in January telling me that the tour in July would be the band’s last...it seemed like such a long way away at the time...

The penultimate show was in Wolverhampton and was another solid performance that provoked another insane crowd response. ‘Everybody Wants Her’ was the big surprise, but it was also fun to hear ‘Just Another Suicide’, ‘Fade Into The Sun’ and ‘Until My Dying Day’ again. The Goosebump-o-meter went through the roof during both ‘Don’t Wait For Me’ and ‘A Better Man’ tonight.

Special meet and greet mentions go out to all the fans from Japan that were there and Jersey Mike who flew all the way from, funnily enough, New Jersey.

So, an overnight drive and plenty of sleep on the way to London follows. We check in to our hotel before heading to the venue where it’s pretty much business as usual. Mark ‘Chopper’ Harris the tour manager is in DVD recording hell today so passes on a few Tour Managery type duties to me which pretty much keeps me busy til doors. After soundcheck there is a band/crew photo shoot on the stage, which is nice.

The queue outside started early today, everyone obviously very keen to get to the front and get on the cameras!! As the Thunderstruck intro played I got the goosebumps already…not a good sign…in fact I’ve just got them again just now thinking about it. As the band took to the stage launched into ‘Loser’ I couldn’t help but feel a pang of sadness…but I soon forgot that as Danny began to sing the wrong song. Sorry Danny, there was no hiding it - “Now I know you don’t Loooove me babieeeee….” is clearly the beginning of ‘Loser’ not the “Oh Baby Iiiiiiiiyiiiiyiiiyiiii……” from Dirty Love that we got…still. You could see Danny’s face as soon as he realised thinking “oh ****, not tonight of all nights”. Still I think in a funny sort of way it put everyone at ease a little, band and fans alike and raised a smile to a few faces…maybe that was Danny’s intention all along….

The crowd were determined to let the band know how much they will be missed and over 5000 Thunder fans did their all to make sure that they gave the band the send off that they deserved. All songs new and old received rapturous applause, particularly ‘Low Life’ ‘Like A Satellite’ and of course ‘Love Walked In’. Scampi outdid himself tonight with another fantastic light and Pyro show – the DVD is going to look fantastic! The band seemed to keep away from some of the big emotional ballads tonight, which I think was a good plan, however, ‘A Better Man’ was very moving. Even Luke seemed to be genuinely feeling it. But before we could all get too wrapped up in thoughts of the end ‘Backstreet Symphony’ came along to lift spirits. Tonight’s highlight for many was probably the next song. Danny introduced it as ‘The one that started it all for a lot of people’ and Luke kicked into the riff of ‘She’s So Fine’. Fantastic – I was really hoping they would pull this one out at some point during the tour and to hold it back for Hammersmith was just perfect! We knew it was the nearly end when ‘Dirty Love’ began. I went to watch this one up from behind Scampi’s desk and I’m glad I did. He was clearly loving it, but also clearly emotional, as were a bunch of the regular loonies that were positioned in front of the desk. I just stood there watching Scamp, the fans and of course the band, just letting it all sink in…smiling the whole time….I still have to pinch myself sometimes that the last 10 years have really happened and that was one of those moments. As the band finished and Scampi blew up the stage I reached over to him and asked if he was ok. “yes…” he said with a quivering lip and watery eyes “…how was it?” “****ing awesome” was all I could say, as we watched the band stand there in amazement as the crowd made more noise that I thought was possible and launched into a impromptu “here we go, here we go, here we go…”. It was just one of those moments that everyone there will remember forever….oh here come those goosebumps again….

London Sound Check: Like A Satellite (excerpts - beginning Keys, Keys and bass, Luke solo. plus Instrumental run through) / On the Radio / She's So Fine / Empty City / 7 O’Clock (Instrumental) / A Better Man (beginning - Haz acoustic only).
London Set List: Loser / On the Radio / Higher Ground / Low Life in High Places / The Devil Made Me Do It / Gimme Some Lovin' / Empty City / Like a Satellite / River of Pain / You Can't Keep a Good Man Down / Love Walked In / I Love You More Than Rock ‘n’ Roll Encore: A Better Man / Backstreet Symphony / She's So Fine / Dirty Love (Including ‘Billie Jean’ excerpt and ‘Shakin’ All Over’)

So I went down and said my final goodbye’s to a lot of the fans, which was when it all really started to hit me that this is never going to happen in this situation again. Sonisphere will be different. This is the last real Thunder show. I popped into the meet and greet for a bit and then headed over to the hotel for the big party…..free booze and food…whoo….! I left for my room around 4am I think, by which point Luke and Danny were the only members of the band still up, but there were still a good number of friends and family around…

And that was it…the end of the final tour and the end of an era. The tour was something really special and something I will never ever forgot for so many reasons, only part of which you will have read about in this blog.  To the band, the fantastic crew, all the fans that came along and made the whole thing such an amazing experience, I thank you….this is The Thin One, over and out….

The Thin Thinking It’s All Over…It Almost Is Now One

20 Years & Out - Japanese Farewell Tour - April 2009

JAPANESE BLOG, PART 1

Monday 13th & Tuesday 14th April

We left a pretty nice Bank Holiday Monday afternoon behind us in the UK as we arrived at Heathrow Terminal 3. With a completely painless check in (sometimes it can be a bit of a palaver with all the guitars), and after being told the flight was virtually empty, we knew we could stretch out on the plane and get some decent kip. This we did with gusto. Fast forward 12 hours or so, and we stepped off the plane at Narita, feeling slightly foggy but no worse than that. The weather was grey and very wet. "Happy Birthday" me I thought.. It nearly always rains on my birthday, no matter where I am in the world.

We had to make a connecting flight to Osaka, which once again was painless and efficiency itself, so when we emerged at Osaka Kansai International airport, we were all in good spirits, despite the weather, which was vile.

We were met as usual by Tom Tao our Japanese tour rep, and loaded up our gear into two big mini buses (we only take guitars and a few bits to Japan, the rest is arranged by the promoter and the equipment companies). Everywhere seemed eerily quiet to me as we made the 30 min drive to the hotel (it usually takes an hour).

Having got into our hotel rooms, we had a princely 40 mins to refresh ourselves before attending the production meeting with the promoter and our Japanese tour crew. This meeting is basically an hour long series of discussions about the equipment, positioning, guitar changes, string changes and other technical stuff. Very necessary, but it's hard to concentrate, having been travelling for the best part of 20 hours. Still the ice cold Japanese beer helped..

Then it was off to dinner near the hotel, where we consumed everything on the menu and all the beer in the place. Jet lag was (temporarily) banished at this point, so we set off for a bar called Rock Rock, where we drank more, just to help us get off to sleep you understand.

Weds 15th April
It was a slightly sorry looking bunch of former human beings who boarded the mini bus to the venue, though spirits were high and much laughing ensued, mostly hysterical it must be said. Soundcheck was very smooth, the Japanese crew being their usual thorough and professional selves. We blasted through some covers for the soundcheck winners, and had a bit of a giggle for 40 mins or so, then they popped back out the front and we popped back into the dressing room to iron our frocks etc.

The show was fine, though I had a bit of an air conditioning/smoke drama early on in the set. It appears my voice didn't like one or both of them, as it suddenly became very croaky after 3 songs. Very strange, as it was fine in the soundcheck. I ploughed on for a while but it got steadily worse, so I asked for both to be switched off. The DB voice returned to normal over the course of the next couple of songs, which was a big relief, and the show finished on a very high note indeed.

The after show was nice, with the usual set up of us sitting at tables and the fans filing past. Slightly formal, but it appears to be the Japanese way. I was given lots of very nice birthday presents (thank you again), so much so that it was hard to carry them all.

All done, we shot back to the hotel to dump bags, then it was out to meet the crew for dinner (Korean Barbeque), where we ate like Kings. Afterwards, as we sat and felt fat and full, the lights dimmed and a fantastic birthday cake appeared all covered with candles etc (very embarrassing having people singing to me). We somehow found room and promptly ate it.

Rock Rock is a 15 minute walk, so having said our thank yous, a leisurely stroll ensued, followed by much more drinking. Harry was feeling a bit tired and emotional, so he went straight back to the hotel after dinner. I enjoyed a few softies before retiring to my room for some work and rest.

More from Nagoya..




JAPANESE BLOG, PART 2

16th April

It was a damned civilised leave time at Osaka (2pm), and we assembled in the lobby in the usual fashion. Bags were whisked away from our hands as we arrived in reception and packed on the truck, and we jumped into a combination of mini buses and taxis for the hour long drive to the station, which took 20 mins (eerily quiet like I said).

The bullet train is a truly wonderful experience, though the station platform could have been slightly less noisy, with constant announcements and buzzers and bells going off, we seemed to be jumping out of our skins every 2 seconds.. The train is massive, extremely comfortable, clean, and very quick indeed.

Once we got to Nagoya (it took an hour) it was a quick hello with the local promoter, then into cabs to the hotel, where we had the rest of the day to ourselves. Some chose to sleep, others to go walkabout, I caught up on work, then had a power nap. I've struggled to get on to Japanese time on this trip, and have had an irritating tendency to only be able to fall asleep 2 hours before it's time to get up. Consequently I am in major need of a nap at every opportunity.

Dinner was a local Nagoya delicacy, chicken wings, loads of them, along with other stuff, all of it delicious. Tom taught us the local technique for devouring them with minimal effort, and time. We ate what looked like hundreds... Then it was out for more drinks and a walk about in Nagoya.

17th April

The venue (E.L.L) is small but brilliantly designed, and the sound is amazing. We got there around 2:30 pm for the soundcheck and of course the crew were ready to go (these guys are amazing). The soundcheck was the usual quick affair, we don't normally spend much time playing, just long enough to ensure we can all hear it, then to possibly run through a few of the lesser played songs of late. Once we were done, the soundcheck winners came in. This is a bit of a weird one, we don't perform, just play the tunes for 20 mins or so like we would in a rehearsal, only slightly self consciously, knowing we're being watched and analysed. Still, the fans enjoyed it (they clapped at the end of each song).

The show was stonking, very noisy crowd, singing along with everything. The band were great too. We had a few tears in the aftershow, but nowhere near as many as last time, so that was a plus.

Dinner was a Chinese restaurant near our hotel, specialising in spicy food. It was spectacular, and we all loved it. Then it was round the corner to a bar playing good music, and some very obscure jazz, which was quite an eye opener.

Another day ended, and we were half way through our final Japanese tour. On to Kawasaki tomorrow...




JAPANESE BLOG, PART 3

April 18th

An early start today by previous standards (10:30).
We gave our suitcases over to the crew the previous night, so we were travelling light when we checked out of the Nagoya Leopalace hotel, jumped into the bus, and headed off to the Shinkansen (train station). The train ride to Yokohama is about 2 hours, but it is luxurious and smooth. You have to hand it to the Japanese train peeps, they've got it seriously going on.. Everybody conked out, but flew into action when the announcement came. We emerged from Yokohama station into bright warm sunlight, which I have to say felt great as we walked down the steps to the waiting vans.

Club Citta is in Kawasaki, it's a great venue, holds about 1200, it's state of the art, and we love playing there. The backstage food was lovely, the staff pleasant, and all was well in the world. Soundcheck was simple and drama free, and we smashed through the tunes at a rate of knots. We're definitely getting good at this playing songs lark. We were scratching our heads trying to think of tunes to play to the soundcheck winners, when they came into the hall, so we had a slightly awkward moment or two while we continued the debate. The fans just stood and observed us patiently and intently. It was a bit like being in a cage at the zoo. We eventually got some ideas and played the tunes and they clapped (again), we of course laughed at our ineptitude as we progressed. Once we were done we thanked them and out they filed, very obediently. We retired to the backstage where we ironed our dresses, pressed our lips and oiled our shoes again.

The show was great, somehow we've been building the intensity as we've gone along. It's certainly not been by design, maybe it's the crowd reaction, which has been slightly more fevered each night. Not sure, but who cares? It's definitely building up to something. Perhaps we'll explode tomorrow..

Dinner was local in Kawasaki, and lovely again (the food is one the things I think we'll miss the most). Then it was into the vans again for the 45 minute drive to Roppongi (Tokyo) and our hotel. The valiant and professional drinkers then transformed themselves from tired rock stars to glittering party animals, and hit the bars. I fell into bed for yet another night of non sleeping.

April 19th

Luke and Ben had interviews beginning at 11am, so I'm sure they would have been chuffed to pieces to receive their alarm calls at 10. I got a bit of a break (mine were set for noon), so I got up and had a leisurely shower, followed by a walk into the Izumi Garden (a sculptured terraced garden with shops and cafes inset into the hill) next door to the hotel. The sun was shining again, and it felt good to be out and about, despite the noise of the flyover above my head (the traffic is everywhere in the city). Back at the hotel, the interview with Naomi from Burrn magazine was intense and rigorous as we've come to expect. It was significant to me that she'd requested to speak with Luke and I separately, presumably to get our different takes on the band's decision to split. She certainly gave nothing away when we got going. I don't know what he said, and as it's in Japanese, I probably won't ever know.

Once we got to the venue in the afternoon, we went through the same routine as the day before, only this time we had even less idea of which tunes we were going to play the soundcheck winners. A certain amount of panic ensued, but we somehow came up with the goods when we needed to, so it turned out fine.

The show was quite literally incredible. Despite a lack of discussion, I got the distinct feeling we'd all subconsciously decided that as it was going to be our last show in Japan, it was going to be one of our best. We were on fire, both musically and physically (well it felt like it, the lights were so hot), and the time quite literally flew by. Changing the set each night made it hard to get a feel for the passage of time, so I think we were all quite surprised when it was over. Having played for 2 hours, we fell into the dressing room soaked in sweat, and physically done in (I know I was). The fans kept clapping and screaming for more, but I knew I had nothing left to give. It was all I could do to get myself into the shower, let alone sing another song.

After a while, as the colour came back to our cheeks, the dressing room filled up with our Japanese media friends and label people, and we toasted 20 years and great relationships, and drank some very nice wine and champagne, before attending the final after show party. This one was informal like we do them elsewhere, so having arrived and made a couple of speeches, we mingled and did the usual pics and autographs for an hour or so, before saying our goodbyes and driving back to the hotel. Then it was out to dinner again, this time to our favourite restaurant. We are always told the name of it, but we always forget, so apologies for being rubbish, but it is famous for being the place where Quentin Tarantino got the idea for the famous restaurant fight sequence in Kill Bill (the first one). The restaurant is basically the same as the one in the film, only without all the killing and dismembered body parts all over the place (obvo). Apart from looking incredible, the food is simply wonderful, and we ate like it was our last night on Earth.

With an early start next day for the airport and the long flight home, there was general apathy among most to the idea of raging in the bars, though some did their heroic best, and they were of course helped into the van next day, like elderly relatives.

That's it, our final tour of Japan. I've not done it justice I'm sure, having written most of it whilst extremely strung out in the middle of the night.
Please forgive me if it doesn't sound like we had a great time, we did, it's just hard to enthuse sufficiently when your eyes feel like you've been rubbing them on the pavement....

Bang! U.K. Tour - November 2008

21st NOVEMBER 2008 : THE GREAT HALL, EXETER UNIVERSITY

18:24:
You will have all heard the news about Harry by now, and yes, as you can imagine, we are all pretty gutted. But it could be worse, the show must go on and all that! John Tonks has stepped in at the last minute and saved the tour. I've just heard them soundcheck and do some last minute rehearsals with John...yes it's different, and yes it's a little strange to see the guys on stage without Mr. James, but there's no need to worry, everyone and everything is sounding great, especially the new tracks from Bang! We will miss Harry for sure, but the shows are going to be...explosive...in more way than one....More soon....it's time to eat!

22nd NOVEMBER 2008 : MANCHESTER ACADEMY

12:21:
Currently sitting backstage at Manchester Academy....last night's show went incredibly well....there were a few first night bugs, but all in all it was a blinder. There seemed to be a few technical issues during 'Honey' as well as the new intro to the show. John did brilliantly, especially considering that he only had 2 days to learn the whole set. Just a few hours before the show he was still listening to the tracks on his iPod, sitting in the canteen making notes. A true professional and his home town crowd gave him the reception he deserved (including his mum and dad who were in the audience). As well as a bunch of new tracks from Bang! a good number of old favourites made welcome returns to the set. Meet and greet went well, lots of new faces that we hadn't seen before, probably due to the fact that the band had never played in Exeter. I'm sure they'll be back...

I've just seen the setlist for tonight's show and as usual for the first couple of shows on a tour there have been some changes. Word just came in that tonight's show is completely SOLD OUT!! A little bird also tells me that a certain drummer is feeling a lot better and could be on a train to Manchester as we speak...

23rd NOVEMBER 2008 : SHEFFIELD CITY HALL

14:17:
After a long lie in, I finally arise around midday in Sheffield. Everyone backstage seems to be whistling tunes from Machine Head by Deep Purple...did I miss something?

Last night was awesome and I have to say one of the most enjoyable Thunder shows that I've seen for a long time. Both the SOLD OUT crowd and band were very up for it right from the get go. The place was absolutely rammed and the atmosphere was electric. Slight changes to the set were made as mentioned previously, things had been moved, Honey was gone and Candy Man was in. Candy Man worked very well as a live track and was one of the highlights of the set in my opinion. I hope it stays. And of course it was fantastic to have Mr. James back on the drums...John was around just in case, but Harry was fine for the whole whole set. Welcome back Haz!

Meet and greet was a very long and busy one, but most enjoyable. Was great to see many familiar faces including my old friend Harry James' Webmistress NC, fans from Japan, ladies dresses in union jack outfits and lots of other interesting folks.

Sheffield is usually a good gig, despite being an all seated venue, so looking forward to tonight again...

25th NOVEMBER 2008 : GLASGOW ACADEMY

13:51:
Sorry for the lack of updates yesterday. I was forced to stay up drinking wine on the bus until 4am after the Sheffield show, so when we got to the hotel in Glasgow I was not in any shape to turn on my laptop...

Backstage at the Academy is not the most roomy of places and the dressing rooms can't seem to pick up the internet so I'm currently sat in the canteen. Sheffield's show was another great one. Scampi the lighting guy finally got to use the new lighting rig to it's full potential and it looked fabulous. Props to the Scampmeister. The setlist was the same as Manchester and I wouldn't be surprised at all if it stays as it is for the rest of the tour as it all seems to flow very well. Once again the crowd were insanely noisy and the band were firing on both barrels (unlike the pyro during On The Radio, which failed to Launch. What happened Mark!?). Mark is responsible for the pyro going off every night, so if anything goes wrong it's automatically his fault! For those wondering there was no pyro in Manchester as the council wouldn't allow us to do it...

I'd better mention sound man Big Pete, as I know he's reading these blogs and will be upset if he doesn't get a mention sooner or later. Thunder shows nearly always sound great and this tour in no exception! Pete does a great job, and you never get the issue of the guitars being too low or the vocalist being drowned out like you do at so many shows. He's also asked me to let you know that he's NOT the true identity behind Thinny, so please stop asking him. He get's the irony, but...no...!

Soundcheck was a fun affair earlier in the day, the guy opened with a jam on Zep's "Kashmir" while waiting for Danny, which was great to hear. Later on Ben, Chris and Harry launch into an impromptu version of The Pink Panther theme. By the way...the Pyro worked fine at sound check...so...what happened Mark!?

Yesterday was a day off and we were in Glasgow for the day. We went out for a meal in an Italian restaurant that is owned by the Gizzi family (Jools and Dante are our friends from GUN. Hopefully they will be coming to the show tonight). This was followed by a few drinks by the bar and a relatively early night (1:30am). It was nice to have a real bed....

Temp drummer John Tonks left us this morning...he's only been with us a few days, but I have to say I will miss him being around. He has many interesting stories to tell from his years in the business and he's just a really nice guy that it's been a pleasure to get to know. Hopefully he'll be coming to the London show so we'll see him then...

About an hour and a half til sound check....

26th NOVEMBER 2008 : NEWCASTLE CITY HALL

18:21:
Currently sat in the bands dressing room, having just had a fantastic 3 course meal courtesy of our friends in catering...lovely...

Glasgow was fantastic as always and probably the most enthusiastic crowd of the tour so far! The guys in the band were also in a great mood tonight, grinning from ear to ear and laughing and joking with each other on stage throughout the show. It's nice to see a band that has been doing this for so long still up there enjoying themselves. So many bands at this stage of their careers just seem to be going through the motions, doing it for the paycheck, or just becoming a boring nostalgia act. The fact that every single person in the audience tonight knows exactly when to scream "F*** You" back at Danny during 'On The Radio' is testament to the fact the band are still making and selling records as strong as ever...

Speaking of 'On The Radio', the Pyros worked exactly as planned in Glasgow and looked absolutely stunning! Well done Mark, all is forgiven....til next time...

Carol Ann is is fast becoming one of my favourite tracks from Bang! and I really enjoy hearing it live every night. Miracle Man made it's debut in Glasgow and sounded fantastic. Thanks to Ben for pointing me out in the balcony for not clapping along to You Can't Keep A Good Man Down. Cheers mate! I was asked the other night if I was Ben's brother as we apparently look alike. I'm not. And we don't.

I also made a point of watching Heaven's Basement in full in Glasgow. I'd seen bits and pieces but not the whole set until yesterday. They are a great band and the more I hear the songs the more I am really liking them. They have the right amount of on stage attitude, mixed with rock star swagger, and they know it. While they are on stage they act as though they own it, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Anyways, fast forward to today and another lie in was in order for me this morning and although I'm told I still look like death warmed up I'm actually feeling much better. Last night, all the late nights and non stop intake of alcohol seemed to catch up with me a little. I'm not a well oiled touring machine like the rest of the guys...

Sound check was an interesting one again today, with a run through or 2 of the currently unplayed Retribution (still my fave from Bang!) and a jam on another couple of Zep numbers.

28th NOVEMBER 2008 : DAY OFF

17:02:
Ok, so I'm back home for the day off and will rejoin the guys in Cambridge tomorrow. I must confess it was nice to be back in my own bed. Currently listening to Chinese Democracy for the first time and really not sure what to make of it at this stage....I like some of it, some of it really don't like and the rest of it just confuses me. It's definitely not the GNR we all know and love...

Both Newcastle and Wolves shows were once again huge successes. No matter how many times they play it, one song that I will never ever get tired of is 'Don't Wait For Me'. It's great to see it back in the set on this tour and it seems to sound better every night if that's possible. I still get the old goosebumps with this one! It's hard to believe that this song is almost 20 years old...scary...

During sound check in Wolves we were treated to a run though of Thin Lizzy's 'The Boys Are Back In Town'. Luke, Danny and Ben recently performed this song (along with 'Don't Believe A Word' and Bad Company's 'Can't Get Enough) at Guitarfest at the NEC where they did a guest spot with Marco Mendoza on Bass and Brent Fritz on Drums.

1st DECEMBER 2008 : THE END

16:09:
Well, we are now all home and real life is back upon us...let's rewind a couple of days to Cambridge...

I missed sound check for the first time this tour, but was reliably (?) informed that they played the whole of the first four Led Zep albums, the soundtrack to Tommy and a complete recreation of Thin Lizzy's Live and Dangerous. And I missed it. Bugger...

Lots of family and friends were at the show tonight. Also saw Robert Hart from Bad Company kicking around with the Get Vegas boys. The Set list remained unchanged. 'Empty City' and 'You Can't Keep A Good Man Down' were highlights tonight. 'Stormwater' is also going down very well. It's a shame there's not a few more tracks from Bang! in the set, but I'm sure they'll come. I expect that may be down to the lack of rehearsal time that they had with Harry prior to the tour, for obvious reasons...

Next up was the last show of the tour in London. Sound Check was minus Danny today so all tracks were played instrumentally.

Sound check:

Backstreet Symphony (Intro)

The Astoria once again held a SOLD OUT crowd and you could barely move in there, but it's ok - rock shows are meant to be up close, personal and sweaty affairs! This will be the last time that the band play the venue as it's due to be knocked down very soon. 'Backstreet Symphony' which has opened every show had some problems last night. For the first verse we couldn't hear Danny at all. We could see that he was singing his heart out, but we heard nothing. Then as the chorus kicked in so did Danny's Microphone and everyone cheered! Phew! 'Gimme Some Lovin'' made it's one and only appearance on this tour tonight during the encore. The rest of the set remained unchanged and as glorious as ever.

Also managed to catch the full Get Vegas set for the first time tonight. I'd seen bits and pieces before and I'd been a little bit confused. I'd been told that they have a retro Free kinda vibe, but I wasn't getting that at all. It sounded to me like they were trying to be much more current than that. After speaking to the band at length after the show I can see that that is exactly what they are aiming for. I'm glad I finally caught the whole set as I finally started to get it. They are still very young and they need to work on their stage presence a little and maybe define their direction a little more, but if they keep at it and get help and advice from the right places it could be an interesting couple of years for those guys. Nice lads as well. Good luck to them.

Meet and Greet was as hectic as London always is. It was nice to see Peter Shoulder, Les Linyard and Chrissy Shannon (Chrissy used to work with Thunder back in 1872-ish when the band were signed to Geffen in the States. It was the first time she had seen the guys for 16 years or so!).

Some quick highlights of the tour:
- Don't Wait For Me - every night
- Watching people jump out of their skins at the BANG! intro
- The return of Harry James (after missing just one show!)
- Seeing the Millennium Falcon in action (Scampi's new lighting rig)
- Meeting lots of new faces and seeing all the old ones again!
- Manchester. Not sure why but I felt this was the best show of the tour. Everything just seemed to click.
- Hearing the band Jamming to Led Zep tunes in sound check
- Everything else!

Now, on a final note, I know that some of you have managed to discover my secret identity and I was forced to sign a few autographs on tour, which is fine. Weird. But Fine. However, the huge crowd of people that turned up to say goodbye to me at St. Pancras station as I left for home was ridiculous. And the screaming was totally unnecessary. This has got to stop. Now. Seriously. It's getting beyond a joke. It's also very confusing for other people. There was some group called Take That there and they seemed to think you were all there to see them. It was very embarrassing for everyone...

Thanks to everyone that came and helped to make this tour a great one! See you at the Xmas Show!

The Thin Back To Reality One

The Hop, Skip & Jump Tour, July 2008

14th JULY 2008 : THE DEVIL MADE ME BLOG IT!

Yup, Thunder is on the road again - this time with Def Leppard and Whitesnake. The tour started today in lovely Cardiff and Thunder have just come offstage. What a show it was - The crowd sounded like an arena full of Thunder fans - everyone seemed to know ALL The words to songs new and old. We'll post the setlists at the end of the tour, but needless to say it was 45 mins packed with Thunder's greatest hits. Not bad considering we almost had to do it without Luke, Danny and Ben who seemed to have major problems navigating through Cardiff's one way system (they blame an inadequate sat nav but we know better!). Thanks to all the Cardiff fans that gave the band such a warm welcome. Can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow in Liverpool. The bar is calling....

The Thin Not Navigationally Challenged One


16th JULY 2008 : HERE I BLOG AGAIN ON MY OWN...

So, yesterday it was sunny Liverpool. After a very tiring 5 hour drive from Cardiff we were all pretty exhausted, but there's no rest for the wicked. It's worth noting though folks, that on the drive up I heard the new Thunder album. All I'm going to say for now is...be very excited...after a first listen it feels like this one could be something special. More on this soon...

After a short rest it was off to the venue. 2 confused taxi drivers, and twenty minutes later we arrive in the dressing room, where it is a customary Thunder pre-gig ritual to put an iPod in the music box and blast out some tunes to get us all in the mood. Chris was DJ today which meant lots of Tom Petty, Earth Wind & Fire, Foo Fighters, and Jellyfish among others.

It's at this point that we are informed by tour manager Mark 'Chopper' Harris that Ben's organ has been well a truly broken. Fortunately for Ben, but unfortunately for the band, Chop was referring to Ben's Hammond organ - which makes it impossible to include Gimme Some Lovin' in Tonight's set. A lengthy debate ensues as to which song should replace it - Backstreet Symphony, Higher Ground and You Can't Keep A Good Man Down are suggested. Eventually the later is decided upon and Chris plays it on his iPod to quickly refresh everyone's memory. As the song comes to an end Chop comes bursting in to the room proudly announcing that the problem has been solved and the Hammond has been revived by backline roadie Brian. Oh well, back to Gimme Some Lovin' it is then...

Next thing we hear is the booming voice of the one and only Mr. David Coverdale from outside the room. "Hello Lads, How are we all this evening?". Once Coverdale enters he seems larger than life and also 10 times louder than anyone else in the room. He shakes everyone's hand then comes over to shake mine. "Who are you?" he asked, obviously never having met me before. I explain that I'm Thunder's web guy to which he replies "why the bloody hell and I shaking your hand then?". Sorry, Mr Coverdale sir, I bow down before thee. In all seriousness it was all taken in the good humour that it was intended and Sir David sits himself down next to me as he catches up with the Thunder guys (it's been 18 years since the last time Thunder and Whitesnake shared the same bill - time flies)

Before we know it it's showtime and Thunderstruck is blasting through the PA system! Thunder take to the stage as the Echo arena is starting to get quite full and launch into the same set as in Cardiff. The crowd, while very up for it, are not quite as intense to begin with as last night, but as time goes on the band slowly but surely wins everyone over. The sound was better tonight, mainly down to the arena having better acoustics (Cardiff ironically seemed way more echo-y than the Echo Arena...). 40 short minutes later and it's all over. Time for food before checking out the end of Whitesnake's set and the beginning to Def Leppard's (both sounded great). Then it's back to the hotel to freshen up, then...you guessed it...the bar....more soon....

The Thin Not Worthy Web Guy One


18th JULY 2008 : LET'S GET, LET'S GET, LET'S GET, LET'S GET BLOGGED!

So, where were we when I last left you. Oh yes the Bar...moving on...

The following day was a day off in Nottingham which was mainly spent travelling from Liverpool, doing a bit of shopping in Notts and going out for a lovely Indian meal at The Curry Lounge in the evening - highly recommended. Great food and great people. Some of you may have seen this place on Gordon Ramsay's programme a while back. Next up, the bar (for a change) and then bed for a very long lie in.

So it's Gig day and after finally surfacing around lunch time and then just chilling out for a bit we head over to the venue first of all to meet some children from a local school. The three kids all have disabilities, yet were still three of the happiest little ones I'd ever come across. They seemed really excited to be there and took a real shine to the Thunder guys. They also impressed us with their air guitar skills - in fact I noticed Luke steal a few moves from Thomas on stage that night! As for the teachers, they were truly insane. Altogether now - "my, my, myyyyyyyy...Delilah...".

I decided to watch the whole show tonight. Thunder were of course on top form yet again. People were still streaming into the arena as they hit the stage, but it filled up very quickly. Tonight show is sold out and easily the biggest of the three. It occurred to me tonight how so at home the Thunder guys look and feel on the big stages in front of big crowds. It's where they belong! These kind of gigs are always great for Thunder as they have the section of the crowd that are already Thunder fans and know all the words etc, then you have the ones that may not have heard the band before, or only know a couple of the hits. BUT, by the end of the show Danny has them all in the palm of his hand and a whole new bunch of Thunder fans are born. You couldn't walk away from Thunder's set without a smile on your face. By the amount on new members of the message board here and the comments made on other website, Thunder have made a lot of new friends over the course of these few shows. As 'I Love You More Than Rock 'n' Roll' comes to an end and Thunder's part in this short but sweet tour is over, it's clear from the crowd reaction that it's been a huge success! Roll on November....

Next up was Whitesnake and before the first song is over Coverdale has already had several pairs of women's underwear thrown at him. I guess some guys just have it. The band are tight as...a tight thing and I was particularly impressed with Doug Aldridge on guitars. All the biggest hits are there, as well as a good number of tracks from the new album. I personally would have enjoyed to see a few more older tracks from the earlier Whitesnake records, but on a tour like this it's really all about the big ones! Maybe the acoustic version of 'The Deeper The Love' wasn't the greatest idea though!? But hey, I'm just the web guy, what do I know...

Def Leppard did exactly what Def Leppard do best - went out there and delivered a good fun show packed with all the hits. Only 2 new ones tonight and a nice little acoustic set, which featured a great version of 'Bringing On The Heartbreak', to balance things out. I did miss 'Go' which is the best track off the new record, but all in all very enjoyable.

So, that's it - it's done....we'll almost...the hotel bar is still open. The Leppard guys are in the same hotel as us, but I only noticed Joe Elliott come down. We sat around mingling with all the familiar faces that were there until only a small group of us remained including me, Luke, Joe and some of their friends. Now I always thought Danny could talk for England, but he has major competition from Mr. Elliott. The guy has some stories to tell, and it was really interesting to sit there and listen to him and Luke putting the world (or rather the Music Biz) to rights. We finally call it a night at 5:15am knowing that it's gonna hurt in the morning....and probably all weekend...

The Thin Back In The Real World One

Childine Rocks Charity Show, IndigO2, London, England, 13th March 2009



- Thunder opened the show with Loser, River Of Pain, Love Walked In and I Love You More Than Rock 'n' Roll.

- Thunder formed the backbone of the band in the second half, and various singers and players came on and off for different songs (see full 2nd half set list below).

- Bob Harris was magnificent and MC'd the evening. Everyone, artists and audience fully embraced the spirit of the evening, and the finale was splendid. 

- Glenn Hughes and Ian Paice of Deep Purple were on stage together again for the first time in 32 years!

- The auction afterwards was incredible, with various items raising loads of money. Noel Gallagher's guitar sold for £10,000 and a Jimmy Page guitar went for a stunning £25,000 big ones. A very nice (but clearly insane) man from Edinburgh paid £4,000 to have Thunder play an "up close and personal" acoustic show in his office.

September 2007 Japanese Tour Reports

SAT. 15th SEPTEMBER 2007 : GREETINGS FROM JAPAN - A BIT OF A REPORT



Here we are again in Japan, and it's hot, it's seriously blinkin' hot. We flew out of Heathrow in the evening of the 13th, arriving in Osaka the following afternoon. It was so humid when we got outside the terminal at Kansai, it was a bit like breathing through a hot wet towel. Thanks to the heavens for air conditioning..

The trip into town from the airport should take about an hour or so, but the Osaka traffic doesn't get any better, so it took more like 90 mins. The Swissotel is truly massive, all 36 floors of it, with a huge lobby and then tiny bedrooms (how does that work?).

As is custom we had our meeting with our production team an hour after arriving, so everyone was feeling suitably vague after the flight and the time difference etc. Technical details discussed, it was off to dinner and the Osaka nightlife. I shall leave that there to protect the innocent and the not so.

The Osaka show day yesterday (Saturday) was once again all relentless heat and humidity, ideal for me and my voice. The Japanese crew were efficiency itself, and we had no problems with all the rented equipment. Today was a bit of a first in as much as we invited some competition winners via the promoter to attend the last 20 minutes of the soundcheck. It was strange for us to be running through the songs as we always do, but this time with 30 or so fans watching us do it. They clapped after one song, which makes sense of course, but nevertheless, felt a bit odd. We kept it as we always do it, complete with all the cock ups, rehearsals and aborted cover versions, said a quick hello to all and went backstage for the final preparations. Some told me after the show that they really enjoyed seeing us in that relaxed mode. Not sure it'll catch on..

The show was hot and sweaty, and the Osaka crowd was awesome. It flew by really quickly, so it was obviously very enjoyable. Luke had some problems with his guitar and radio system, so he seemed to be in and out of the show all night. It turned out to be a dry joint in the guitar, so it couldn't have been avoided, but I did feel sorry for him.

The aftershow was very nice as usual, with gifts and photographs etc, followed by a swift exit for much needed dinner. Everyone was starving, but luckily there was plenty of lovely Japanese food, in the noisiest restaurant I have ever been in. Ran into several fans in the street as we left the restaurant (how do they know where we are?), all were very excited and very nice.

Off to Tokyo tomorrow, the weather is rumoured to be rainy and cool, I'll believe that when I see it..
I'm off to per my eyebrows, more later..

SUN. 16th SEPTEMBER 2007 : JAPAN REPORT NO. 2



Hello again, me here, reporting from super hot Tokyo.

The weather people are obviously as rubbish here as the guys back in the UK, as they said it was going to be raining and cool. Instead we woke up to more heat and super stickiness. The lobby call time wasn't too early today so no one had any trouble reporting (unusual). The Shinkansen (bullet train) was super fast and super prompt as usual, and whisked us to Tokyo in what seemed like seconds. We went straight to Club Citta, our venue for today's show, where the equipment was ready for us to sound check. It's such a great club, everything is well designed, it's just, well... right.

We ran through some covers and some songs we haven't played for ages in the sound check, varying degrees of rustiness were evident here and there, but as is the way of things, the right songs for the set made themselves evident, and it all came right for the show, which was extremely hot and sweaty (again). The crowd was amazing (again), and possibly even more enthusiastic than Osaka (if that were possible).

Not much to report from the after show, save for the fact that it was very pleasant, with the fans being their usual excited selves. Dinner was Korean Barbeque in Kawasaki, in a lovely restaurant, with lovely staff, and of course lovely food. It's such a pleasure to be here again. Two shows down, one to go, it's all a bit of a whistle stop affair this time.


MON. 17th SEPTEMBER 2007 : JAPAN REPORT NO. 3



Yes it's been day 3 and the weather just got hotter and even stickier than the day ages ago when Sticky the stick insect got stuck on a sticky bun..

Luke Ben and I had to report for promotion duty a full 90 minutes before everyone else, so we were in the venue by 12:30 lunchtime, doing a series of interviews with magazines and TV, followed by the usual lengthy list of IDs ("hello my name is Danny and you're listening to BUM FM etc"). It's nice to get so many people wanting to speak with us when we come to Japan, so despite feeling jetlagged/hung over, we were glad to be there.

The soundcheck was funny today. Once we'd run through the less familiar and the old, the Japanese soundcheck winners arrived and we were kind of stuck for things to do. Rather than go through songs we were going to play that night, and ruin the surprises, we went into an impromptu Bad Company's Greatest Hits session. It was fun to blast through some of the really old Bad Co tunes we haven't played for years. We even put one of them in for the encore...

The show was great, crowd amazing as for the previous two shows. Band had a few moments here and there with the unfamiliar, but it made for a certain degree of nervous excitement, and that usually results in us either being rubbish or truly fabulous. Hand on heart I'd have to say we had a little of both tonight, but I think only we noticed...

Dinner was at the famous restaurant that inspired the massive restaurant carve up in the first Kill Bill film. Fab!

Some fairly professional drinking followed, it being the last night of the trip and all that. I dare say there will be some fairly professional hangovering tomorrow also..

Masters Of Rock - A Not So Brief Report...

Having cancelled our first ever show in the Czech Republic in March, we were slightly puzzled that the promoter added us to the bill for this festival, and even more puzzled that we were so near the top.
We decided on a mix and match travel approach to this summer's festival activities, so we flew to this show, rather than go on the bus (a la Bospop 08/07), and the kind ladies at British Airways were very nice about all our luggage, guitars, drum bits and spare amplifiers.. It was very funny checking in with 25 items of luggage (between 9). Nothing to report about the flight really, it was nice enough, as flights go. Nice sandwich.
Having been met at Vienna Airport by our non English speaking Czech driver, we spent the next 4 hours on the bus with The Children Of Bodom, who were aptly named (multiple stops for wee wees, I swear I heard "are we there yet?" at one point). These are ideal iPod times.
The hotel Moskva is a relic from the old days, a perfectly preserved slice of yesteryear, complete with grand entrance hall, marble floors and ancient fittings. The staff were really nice and friendly, as were everyone we met over the course of the weekend. After a long day's travelling, necessary showers were taken and parts refreshed, then the obligatory vital liquids were taken on board in the bar. It got really quite funny, but that's where I'll leave that one I think. Fast forward to Saturday...
The crew left for the site at noon, just to fine tune/tweak/fret over our endorsement/rented backline. The band were in various activities (i.e. shopping, sleeping, computing etc) in and around the hotel for most of the day, but we got to the festival in time to see Sham 69's set. We watched Epica, who were aptly named (again). They were epic indeed, and very good at it, especially the man who did the goring (I'm told by those in the know that this is the term used to describe that guttural monster type noise that some front people do instead of singing).
Our set time approached, and having watched Epica go down so well, I detected a degree of nervousness within various band members. This is rare, so it was quite unsettling, but as usual, it faded away the moment we took to the stage. The Czech crowd were absolutely mad for it, despite the raging heat, and 99.9% of them not having a clue who we were. They were absolutely fab from the get go, and we had a brilliant time. We did a rather frantic but very enthusiastic signing session afterwards during Stratovarious' set (they sounded good too, if a little Iron Maidenesque).
Having decamped to the hotel, stickiness was once again removed with soap and water, and food was consumed, followed by the usual, but once again, to protect the innocent and the not so, I'll leave it there.
Travel home was the reverse of day one really, minus the Children Of Bodom, so it was a bit quicker, but no cooler (35c at Vienna Airport).
All in all, a fun weekend's work, if you can call it that. Nothing live now until Cambridge, so it's collective nose back to the studio grindstone. I'll check and see if we have any decent pics, and if so I'll ask the Thin One to whip them up for you.

Mud, Rain, Fun & Thanks...

Dear All
 
We've been seriously busy this year, behind the scenes mostly, so as it's been a wee while since we made any formal announcements, I thought I'd put that right today. Check this out...
 
CHEPSTOW - REPORT
 
The freak weather did its worst, and the rain was both steady and determined on Saturday last. It was a shame, clearly Carol & Co (promoter) had worked extremely hard to stage the event. 
 
Having driven down to Chepstow in our cars (rather than do the tour bus, we elected for a bit of self drive, just to make a change), we arrived at the festival site for our soundcheck, armed to the teeth with our oh so Rock'n'Roll brollies, waterproofs and wellies. It didn't seem as wet or muddy as we feared it would be. The soundcheck was fine, pretty painless really, we took lots of silly photos of each other in our fetching wellies and guitars. A small crowd of lunatics (obviously) gathered on the grassy (if a little slippery) knoll to watch us, and some clapped occasionally as we ran through some songs, and teased Peter our sound man. He's been unable to do the last few festivals with us, so we took great delight in telling him how well Dennis his replacement had done. Technical boxes ticked, we shot back to our hotel for some vital laying down, followed by dinner in Chepstow. I was ironing my tu-tu during Rattlesnake Remedy and some of Toby's set, so I missed them, but from what I heard it sounded like they both went down extremely well. Despite the omnipresent wind and rain, the signs were good.
 
We were hopeful, but not 100% confident that the mood of the assembled throng would be waterproof, but to be honest we needn't have worried. From the first moment, the crowd was amazing, singing and clapping and squelching their hearts out, all the way through the set. We were most chuffed, and it showed (it's funny how the relief takes you up into that 6th gear you didn't think you had). For the record I would like to state that contrary to reports on the message board, I do not touch the other band members in the bottom area, merely the waist or midriff. I am happily heterosexual and have no desire whatsoever to feel their bums. I hope this clears it up...
 
Talking of bums, the only bummer all night was the sopping aftershow, with nowhere dry to hold it, and a solitary portacabin of a dressing room, the only place was in the rain, and whilst all were jolly, I think everyone had had quite enough moisture at that point. Hats off to you aftershowers (that's not a pun). The Bridge in Chepstow hosted the after show party, and Karen and Taryn were most gracious with their hospitality, though it must be said my little sore thumping head was not thanking them on Sunday morning.
 
Certainly Saturday turned out to be a fab night the weather couldn't spoil, so we'd like to say a huge thank you to all who worked on it, and of course those who attended. Now hopefully the wellies can go back in the shed... At the time of writing I've heard no reports of Sunday night's events, but I hope it went well.
 
LIVE SHOWS RECENT PAST & COMING UP..
 
Sweden Rock was great at the beginning of June (boiling), as were the shows at Bang Your Head (Germany) and Rock Sound (Switzerland). SR was recorded for the radio, BYH was filmed for a documentary, and RS was filmed for Swiss TV, so it looks like we're in danger of becoming media darlings, darlings.. Footage of RS is so good, we're considering putting it out on DVD. Watch this space for news on that...
 
Next weekend sees us return to Bospop in Holland for our 3rd appearance there. Hopefully it won't be wet, or as wet, and we won't be doing Radar Love this time.. We're all looking forward to getting back there, especially after the fab Zoetemeer show in March. Our first foray into the festivals of the Czech Republic beckons the week after, so roll on the July 14th (wonder what they'll make of us?). After Masters Of Rock we'll get a little break from live shows until August 19th when we'll return with a headline appearance at The Cambridge Rock Festival. The bill looks fab and we'll get to see Wishbone Ash (for free), so how bad is that? We head East in mid September (along with the Devil apparently) for 3 shows in Japan, which will no doubt be most splendid. We're planning to change the set about a bit across these shows, as well as inviting competition winners to attend soundcheck, so that'll be a laugh. If it works we may well roll this idea out elsewhere (win tickets to watch Harry brush his teeth!! It's a Joke..). We'll finish off our summer shows for 2007 with the Harelbeke show in Belgium on September 22nd, with Manfred Mann and Pat Travers et al. Full details on this and the other shows are on the gigs page.
  
Right, that's it from me for now, hope you know more now that you did 10 mins ago, and that this info is useful to you in some way. I'm off to wax my board, my bikini line, and press my shorts...
 
Take care

November 2006 U.K. Tour Diary

In association with Planet Rock Radio

WED. 15th NOVEMBER 2006 : PLYMOUTH PAVILION, ENGLAND



First night nerves suitably blunted by a stiff drink or two, we took to the stage around 9pm. We're played seven songs from Robert Johnson's Tombstone which is a lot and for that reason we were probably less relaxed than usual, although we were really looking forward to seeing how the audience reacted to the new material. As is usual on first nights we had a few technical gremlins but 'Dirty Dream', 'A Million Faces', 'The Devil Made Me Do It', 'My Darkest Hour' and 'Robert Johnson's Tombstone' were all very well received. We nearly always alter the arrangements of songs to suit the live environment and whenever we do exaggerate certain dynamics and they work out well, it's very satisfying.

Now we've got a handle on what works and feels good we will almost certainly change the set for the next show and the nipping and tweaking will continue for the first few gigs.


After a certain amount of dressing room 'post match analysis' we agreed things had gone pretty well for an opening night so, after a thoroughly pleasant meet and greet session and a swift nightcap or two, we boarded the bus and headed off into the night towards our next port of call, Llandudno. It's good to be back on the road. Hurrah!.



Set list: Backstreet Symphony / Dirty Dream / What a Beautiful Day / A Million Faces / Laughing On Judgement Day / River Of Pain / Last Man Standing / My Darkest Hour / The Devil Made Me Do It / Robert Johnson’s Tombstone / Love Walked In / Can’t Keep a Good Man Down
Encore: I Love You More Than Rock 'n' Roll / Low Life In High Places / Dirty Love


FRI. 17th NOVEMBER 2006 : LLANDUDNO NORTH WALES THEATRE, WALES

Having had a day off in Llandudno the day before, we were all looking forward to getting back into the swing of touring. It's a bit odd to do one show and then have a day off, and in all the years we've been doing it I think this is the first time it's happened. Like I said... odd. Still, the usual pre show preparations went by hitch free, and soundcheck time came at 4pm. We smashed through some of the new tunes, and the sound on stage was really nice so we all felt excited about the show to come. Luke started busking "The Stealer" by Free, and we all just fell into it. It sounded great for about half a song, before the inevitable unravelling, and it quickly fell apart. I like those moments.

The show was a vast improvement on the first one, with minimal technical dramas. We re-jigged 

the set a little bit, and the crowd were extremely noisy from the off. It's always a bit strange playing new songs so soon after a release, but a lot of the crowd seemed to know them, and those who didn't were very enthusiastic after the fact. My Darkest Hour is rapidly becoming a really nice moment in the set, I shall say no more for fear of spoiling it for those yet to come. The Devil Made Me Do It went down very well, so hopefully loads of people will buy it on December 4th, and get us in the single charts. I know I'm shameless, I just can't help it..

When it was done, we went off to a lot of noise, so we felt really chuffed. The after show was very nice, lots of new faces, and loads of young faces too (always a revelation to me), so we did our thing, chatted, did pics and signed autographs galore for an hour or so. Llandudno was really good, must make sure we don't leave it another 8 years before going back! 



Set list: Backstreet Symphony / Dirty Dream / What a Beautiful Day / A Million Faces / Laughing On Judgement Day / Gimme Some Lovin' / Robert Johnson’s Tombstone / My Darkest Hour / River of Pain/ The Devil Made Me Do It / Love Walked In / Fade into the Sun / I Love You More Than Rock 'n' Roll
Encore: Can’t Keep A Good Man Down / Low Life In High Places / Dirty Love


SAT. 18th NOVEMBER 2006 : OXFORD NEW THEATRE, ENGLAND

Having successfully negotiated the one way system that is Oxford city centre and still feeling very good about the previous day's show in Llandudno, we assumed our positions for soundcheck. The New Theatre is a great sounding room and it was a pleasure to run through a lot of material from the new album. Speaking of the new album, all the new stuff seems to be going down very well which is very satisfying. The audience tonight were great! There was a guy in the front row wearing horns who'd painted himself red; crazy! There were also a few ladies looking like horny little devils........mad; I loved it! Everybody seemed to forget about their seats and stood up for most of the show which was nice!

The aftershow was as sociable as ever and it was good to see some of our friends from the world of football (Messieurs Speroni and Sorondo). Much drinking ensued backstage until late and I made the acquaintance of a beautiful mental health nurse who I thought had come to take me away ha ha, he he..... but sadly I was mistaken.

We finally boarded the lovebus around 1.45am tired but happy.



Set list: Backstreet Symphony / Dirty Dream / What a Beautiful Day / A Million Faces / Laughing On Judgement Day / Gimme Some Lovin' / Robert Johnson’s Tombstone / My Darkest Hour / River of Pain/ The Devil Made Me Do It / Fade into the Sun / Love Walked In / I Love You More Than Rock 'n' Roll
Encore: Can’t Keep A Good Man Down / A Better Man / Dirty Love


MON. 20th NOVEMBER 2006 : PORTSMOUTH GUILDHALL, ENGLAND



Welcome to the first instalment of my Thunder tour diary. Today finds me relaxing in the dressing room at Wolverhampton Civic Hall, after traveling overnight on the bus from Portsmouth. I've had an incredibly hectic time for the past few weeks, having been on the road on and off since the start of September with another band. This tour was still ongoing when the Thunder rehearsals started, meaning I rehearsed in London during the day, did a gig in Kings Lynn that evening, rehearsed in London again the next day, did a gig in Northampton that night, then two more days rehearsals before the Thunder tour started. On the day after the first show in Plymouth when everyone else had a day off in Llandudno, I had a gig in Basingstoke!

I'm glad to say the other tour has now finished - I'll never complain about having too much work, but it can be a bit nerve-wracking trying to juggle it all.

Last night's show in Portsmouth was great - the new songs are becoming more familiar with us and the audience, and the sound onstage was really good. All went well except a minor incident during River Of Pain, when Luke's guitar strap broke, and, completely unfazed by this, he had to finish the song sitting on the front of the stage. What a pro!

Much to the band's amusement, I decided to wear a tie during the gig at Oxford, which prompted Danny to introduce me as "Chris Childs on bass guitar and tie". The jury is out as to whether it appears again this tour...
I'm loving the new songs - the highlight of the set for me is "My Darkest Hour" which has been a firm favourite of mine since I first heard Luke's demo. TDMMDI is also great fun to play, and has one of the sexiest riffs ever in the chorus.

I can't wait to get on with the rest of the tour - we're all really pleased with the new album and the reception it's getting from the fans. See you in Wolverhampton!



Set list: Backstreet Symphony / Dirty Dream / What a Beautiful Day / A Million Faces / Laughing On Judgement Day / Gimme Some Lovin' / Robert Johnson’s Tombstone / My Darkest Hour / River of Pain/ The Devil Made Me Do It / Fade into the Sun / Love Walked In / I Love You More Than Rock 'n' Roll
Encore: Can’t Keep A Good Man Down / A Better Man / Dirty Love


TUES. 21st NOVEMBER 2006 : WOLVERHAMPTON CIVIC HALL, ENGLAND



At last sound checks are down to only three whole songs and a few bars from Backstreet Symphony (because Pete the soundman can't remember how it goes). This is a good thing, it shows that we are happy with the show arrangements and comfortable with the songs. It's all downhill from here (in a good way of course).
It's sunny and very cold in Wolverhampton but we are glad to be back at the Civic hall, not because of the acoustics or the fact that its sold out but because the dressing room has a jacuzzi and a shower that can squirt bits of you other showers just can't reach. With ten minutes to curtain call we manage to pull Chris screaming and kicking from the shower and into his sparkly costume, he's been in there experimenting with nozzles for the last two and a half hours and gone a little prune like.

We all go down to the side of the stage and await the phrase "house lights please..." from our Tour Manager.

Rock and Roll is a wonderfully choreographed dance between a band and its audience. Take the idea of an encore for instance, you know we are going to do one, we know you know we're going to do one, we know you know we know yet we still go though the merry dance; disappearing off stage whilst you shout for more, it's all part of the fun and I for one wouldn't trade a second of it.

Another RnR operational procedure is "house lights off - crowd cheer" - This is one of favourite bits for me; the call for house lights is a good indication of whether an audience is in the right frame of mind or not as when the lights go off so do the audience.

Tonight was spectacular, as the auditorium was plunged into darkness the cheer from the audience was incredible, they really took the roof off; we all looked at each other and although no one said anything we were all thinking the same thing... is my hair OK?

The Midlands has always been a strong area for Thunder and this evening's show was no exception, the audience were fabulous. It was as though Danny could do anything he liked with them and so he did, splitting them into team A and team B and setting them against each other during You Can't Keep A Good Man Down, then into women and men in Dirty Love, only Brucie himself could have done a better job.

Having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, we retired to our dressing room and with Chris safely back in the shower I managed to finish off the best part of a bottle of vodka in the jacuzzi before walking in a crab-like fashion to the tour bus, falling into my bunk and into a coma. I woke up in London with beautiful fresh breath and no hangover at all... Armageddon!

WED. 22nd NOVEMBER 2006 : LONDON FORUM, ENGLAND

I woke up this morning (da-dah da-dah) feeling less than my best but after a London show I've come to expect nothing less. We've not played at the Forum since our farewell tour in '99 and I was really looking forward to last night's show. Some venues have a vibe about them and I particularly like this place. I have fond memories of the first time we played here in 1990 as an unannounced support act for Little Angels and FM. There's been a lot of water under the bridge since then but the hangover remains the same! It must be me getting older. Anyway, enough misty-eyed nonsense.......

Once again I managed to miss Even Nine although people I spoke to afterwards seemed to enjoy them. It can be difficult being the opening act but I do think our audience is very fair when it comes to giving support acts a listen.

One of the negative things about playing your hometown is the long, lost friend effect; i.e. your phone starts ringing like a runaway fire engine and everybody you don't hear from the rest of the year suddenly calls you having noticed you happen to be playing in town tomorrow or worse still that very day. Having said all of that, it was great to see some dear old friends chatting away at the bar in the after show (Lig, Nick, Jon, Rob, Chris etc.).

The show itself went very well. The audience was fantastic and the band were the band! The new material is feeling comfortable now and we're starting to play really well. The sound on stage has been superb throughout the shows and the net effect of that is we all play better and Danny sings better. I was chatting to Chris about it this morning and we concluded that part of the reason is the new Marshall amplifiers we're using for the first time on this tour. Nice one Steve!

FRI. 24th NOVEMBER 2006 : MANCHESTER ACADEMY, ENGLAND

Having been at home for the day off after London, it was a case of "in the cab and to the station" for the train up to Manchester. My stone age man monosyllabic cab driver was the least chatty person I've ever met, so the journey was mostly silent, apart from my phone constantly ringing of course... Met Harry at Euston (he went home for the day off too) and got settled on the train. Uneventful train ride:- phone off, read newspapers, listened to iPod, had a kip. Harry went for the kip only option. Nice. 

Got to the venue around 3pm, all was in full preparational swing, busy busy and on schedule. It all begins around 8:30am on show days you know. Had a little chat with the lads from Glyder, welcomed them to the tour and wished them good luck for their 3 shows. They seem like a nice bunch.

Soundcheck time came and the band blasted through 75% of half a dozen Led Zeppelin classics, minus me, who was experiencing some microphone drama. After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, knob twiddling, and much contemplative stroking of chins, the technical guys opted for a change of microphone, and the odd muddy sound disappeared, replaced by crystal clear DB through the monitors. Hurrah! 

The show was fantastic. Hot and sweaty in the extreme, just how I like it. The ceiling in the Academy is so low so the lights are very close to our heads when we're up there. I felt sure poor old Harry's head was going to catch fire.. The crowd were (as they say in these parts) mad for it from the get go, and got progressively noisier in response to my constant appeals. Of all the shows so far, the singing when we played the songs from the new album was the noisiest tonight, more people knowing the words. I began to get a bit light-headed towards the end of the show, having been leaping about like a maniac for the best part of 2 hours in the extreme heat, and felt myself on the edge of passing out, but luckily managed to re-focus just in time, rather than fall off the stage into the crowd (how undignified would that be?). 

The aftershow was manic like it always is in Manchester, with lots of very nice and some very drunk peeps, all very high on life. Toby Jepson was there, looked like he'd had a good night. Had my bum pinched a few times (gently please ladies), and more than a few improper proposals from young (and some not so young) ladies, which is always amusing. Back to the bus for some sitting up, drinking, chatting and laughing with Brian & Co from Mostly Autumn. Having felt great throughout the tour so far, I must confess to feeling a bit on the tired side when it all calmed down, perhaps I'm getting old? 

Another great show, and so we draw inexorably towards the end of the tour, it always goes by so quickly, I guess we must still be having fun...

SAT. 25th NOVEMBER 2006 : NEWCASTLE CITY HALL, ENGLAND



I was woken quite early outside Newcastle City Hall with a bang! There was a lamp-post in the way of the back of the bus. Thought I was dreaming as the cry of "woh woh woh WOH!" went out followed by the inevitable thud. No big damage done thankfully, but Jimmy the bus driver was teased mercilessly all day.

It was a lovely bright day in the Toon and I was treated to the sights and sounds of the shopping centre. Had a walk round to clear my head from the previous night's alcoholic poisoning.........again!

I did make a consolidated effort to lose a bit of weight this year, but as soon as we hit the road, the food cooked up by our on the road caterers has been just too good to refuse. Feel a couple of pounds heavier than when we started the tour. Must be all those puddings I don't normally eat at home, it can't be the booze can it? Still, felt sure I'd work some it off tonight.

And I did! Tonight at Newcastle City Hall was a stonker, but personally, I wouldn't expect anything less from a Newcastle audience. To add to the silliness, we had one of the biggest brazieres in the world thrown on to the stage. I was just a matter of time before it was going to be on my head for half a song. Had to happen didn't it? It was so big it engulfed my entire head, I'm talking industrial strength... And due to people's generosity and kindness, my wig emporium has expanded on this tour. They seem to be multiplying....or maybe that's just my imagination running away with me. Wonder what Sweep makes of it all (nice horns by the way). The meet and greet was very enjoyable as ever, lovely warm people. Had to put up with lots of women feeling my arse up, oh the misery of it all. Still, happy days....

MON. 27th NOVEMBER 2006 : SHEFFIELD CITY HALL, ENGLAND



Today's instalment of my tour diary is being written from a hotel room in Glasgow on our day off. Yesterday we arrived in Sheffield bright and early, and I was the first off of the bus and into the hotel day room, leaving the rest of the band snoring and farting. After showering I headed off on foot to the City Hall, where I knew that breakfast would be waiting for me in catering. We have a fantastic catering company, "Eat Your Hearts Out" who cook the most delicious and exotic dishes for lunch and dinner, but you just can't beat a good old full English first thing in the morning. The rest of the day was spent hanging around the gig or outside on the bus, watching movies and sleeping, with the occasional visit to catering. A tough life!

Soundcheck went smoothly - great onstage sound again - Gary, you rock! During a rendition of Back In Black I came to the conclusion that I don't know how to play any ACDC songs... shame on me! We can usually manage a verse and chorus of most tunes before it all falls to pieces, and it makes the daily grind of soundcheck more bearable.

The show had sold very well so we were expecting a good night, and we certainly weren't disappointed! Every gig we do seems to be better than the last - I really think this has been the best tour we've done for a long while.
Danny was his usual unstoppable self - at one point encouraging the people on the balcony to "get their kit off". A few willingly complied, though at that distance I couldn't make out if they were male or female! Damn short-sightedness. Due to it being a seated venue, there was no barrier at front, and people were standing right at the edge of the stage - I had to take care not to step on any fingers! A few beers backstage with some friends, then on to the bus for the overnight journey.
I'm feeling a little sad that the tour is drawing to a close, it's been such good fun, but hey - it's only a few weeks until the Christmas show! I'm telling everyone in the meet & greets that this year's show will be the best so far - just make sure that you're there to find out if I'm right...

Big Love,

TUES. 28th NOVEMBER 2006 : GLASGOW ACADEMY, SCOTLAND



So it seems that my last blog has upset our soundman Pete and he has asked me for a retraction. I think it was because I was sitting chatting to our lighting designer and Pete was jealous. There is a certain rivalry between sound and lights on a rock and roll tour and there is some fine banter between the two, as Pete went by he muttered "just remember no one goes home humming the lights” to which the LD replied “yeah, but without lights it’s just radio”. At this point I just sat back and enjoyed the duelling. “I’ve done shows without lights but never without sound” Pete stabbed back and so it continued until I decided to wander off to catering and get a mop for the blood.

Glasgow city centre has changed recently, as you walk down the street it is now full of people standing in doorways puffing away due to Scotland’s draconian new smoking laws. I love them as I have given up smoking and if I sound a little smug, I am and I don't apologise – good old Draco, I didn’t realize he was a non-smoker too. Some bars have assuaged and set up smoking areas outside with tables, chairs, ashtrays and little red heaters which bathe the smokers in an eerie red light. We were in one such bar for a pre-dinner drink and Harry went outside for a quick puff, when he switched the heater on he looked just like he does on the new album cover.

Having had a day off we were all rested and ready for a cracking show at the Academy. Last time we played here it was on a Saturday and this evening had a lot to live up to, after all Saturday night in Glasgow is a bit of a night. I knew it was going to be good when Harry came into the dressing room with the cross of St Andrews emblazoned on his shirt and wearing a kilt. “Shall I wear this in the encore?” He asked, “It would be rude not to, after all I'm sure King Angus would have approved” I replied.

The show was wonderful and the Glaswegian crowd did not let us down despite it being a wet rainy Tuesday. At one point Danny got his “magic finger” out which was a bit of a worry at first and there was much schoolboy smirking and innuendo from the rest of the band, but it all worked out fine in the end. Danny also did a real nice tribute to the late, great Alan "Fluff" Freeman who sadly passed away the day before, he will be sadly missed, a real iconic figure.

Harry did come out in his kilt and shirt for the encore only to be told in the aftershow that he was in fact wearing it back to front which he insisted that he did on purpose, I leave you to make your own minds up as to whether he did or not.

We watched the Wicker Man in the dressing room, what a great film that is, we’re off to Inverness tomorrow…… worried, me?

WED. 29th NOVEMBER 2006 : THE IRONWORKS, INVERNESS, SCOTLAND



We left Glasgow very late, having had a great show and a fun time afterwards, talking complete and utter rubbish with some nutty Glaswegians into the wee small hours (no pun intended). Goodbyes said, the caterers and additional sound and lighting crew peeps took off for home on one of the love buses, leaving us to wend our way Northwards to Inverness. The Ironworks show was bolted on to the tour and is a much smaller venue than the rest of the shows, so our production was also sent home, along with the truck. This left us with the bus and a trailer for the slimmed down backline.

The bus arrived at the venue in the early hours, and we all got a long lie in, rather than the usual early morning load in, the crew call was 12 noon. "Aah... sleep..." said they. Ironworks is a really nice venue, all new and shiny, with nice clean facilities and showers that work (always a bonus when you fall off the bus in the morning looking & feeling 135 years old). Having cleaned and polished our little selves, there was talk of a walk around town for some sights and scenes, but sadly the weather intervened and the heavens opened, in a big way... Chris made it to the stage door...

We had a few technical issues during the soundcheck, mostly to do with the way the audio system is set up in the venue, but we did our best to overcome them, and the people at the venue were very helpful. Not much jamming today, with no people in the room the soundcheck was no audio feast, so we did what we had to do and hoped it would sound better when the audience arrived. Dinner was very nice, having lost our lovely caterers, we were taken to a local hotel where they fed us very nicely (thank you Laura & co).

Showtime came and on we went. It was immediately apparent that the small crowd was not going to be a quiet one, so all concerns about on stage sound soon evaporated. I had a very silly moment in What A Beautiful Day, where, having gone around the back of Luke's amps for a drink, I returned with the microphone the wrong way up, then proceeded to speak into the wrong end, with a pretty quiet result (as you'd expect). I was so surprised, I burst into fits of laughter, and having never done it before in over 30 years of performing live, the weirdness of it kept coming back into my mind for the rest of the show. Even as I type I cannot imagine how I did it, or how I've never done it before now. A small but significant thing dear reader, but maybe it was the catalyst for what followed, for I was not the only one. Chris had an attack of the yips during My Darkest Hour, and went into a weird world of blank pain in the first chorus, the end result being a kind of jazz exposition, only very loosely based on the song that Luke and I were playing. Luke had a moment too, but swore he didn't afterwards, Harry told him though. I completely blanked at the beginning of You Can't Keep A Good Man Down, and had to lie on the floor and ask someone for the words to the first verse. The bizarre thing is that we'd all been so red hot and fab for the rest of the tour (honest guv), you'd think this would have happened at the beginning, not the end. None of it mattered though, both the band and the crowd were having far too good a time of it to really let it affect anything, it just seemed to make it all the more enjoyable.

We had a great night, and I told the crowd most sincerely that I couldn't think of a better place to end a tour. As it does, it flew by far too quickly, I mean both the show and the tour, so I guess this is it for the daily blog thing for a while. I'd just like to end by saying a very big thank you on behalf of all of us in the band, to everyone who attended the tour, and helped us make it one of the most enjoyable we've ever done.

Sadly my demands go on and on.. Please continue to help the Thunder cause, by spreading the word about the new LP, the new single (I meant it about everyone buying loads of copies), and of course the band in general. We'll be back to do it all over again later in 2007, after we've made yet another bid to take over the rest of the world, but for the meantime, our work here is done.

Thanks again, you are the best fans in the world.
