I & I Dread


I don’t do that many gigs these days – a dozen a year at the outside – but tonight I’m starting a spell of three in eight days.

As a singer there’s one thing I dread more than anything else – worse even than entertaining a Hell’s Angels Convention or the 6.57 Crew at Basin’s

And there it was.

Tuesday morning a sore throat. By this morning a streaming cold that will no doubt convert to a chest sounding like a machine gun in the next day or two.

Stuffed – literally.

  1. Love your sentiments regarding the 657!!!

  2. Bless ’em all! They used to come down the US Ground to watch Hampshire play cricket – never paid of course – highly entertaining. Wanted Hampshire to win but gave terrible stick to any of our players who came from Southampton. Den & I went to Basins one time to see Brendan Croker and the 5 O’Clock Shadows, nice gentle ‘roots’ band. Middle of their set, enormous ruck in the middle of the floor!! I’ve always been secretly proud that Portsmouth South is the ONLY Parliamentary constituency in the whole country to have had a bona fide Football Hooligan as a candidate
