It’s always sad …

1 Comment

… to report the deaths of ageing rock stars but the news today that a young band called Viola Beach have been killed ‘on the road’ is especially tragic and will strike a chilling note with all of us who have ever been ‘on the road’, driving late at night, tired and far from home. Truly a tragedy in the world of musicians.

RIP

  1. Amen to that Dave. Just the drive home from the local gig can become tragic in the blink of an eye. So many near misses from the drunks on the road. I don’t miss that at all. Very Sad.
