    Amazing Mega Melt (donner, chips and melted cheese) from Get Stuffed tonight for probably our last tango in Halifax. Always a contender for kebab of the year from this boutique.

    So after bemoaning my parlous fraetless playing (as viewed in a gig video recently) what did I do tonight?.... A whole gig of Lizzy, Whitesnake, Chickenfoot and assorted rock covers ooooooon...the fretless! :D Bit of a necessity, and quite fun, but hopefully no video evidence ;)

    Beer of the Bass

    Suffering from crazy inlaw issues again. If you were moving out of a house you'd lived in for 30 years ready to sell it, you'd give yourself more than a week to clear it, right? And maybe have a plan B other than your son-in-law travelling 200 miles to try and sort it in 3 days flat?
