JAMES the band back on tour!!

I have only recently gotten back from a small tour of the UK following the band JAMES on their April 2008 tour. Well I say tour but it was more like up to Sheffield from London then across to Oxford for my second one!!!

Why go to 2 concerts by the same band? Coz each is different! And I lurve listening to them live.

I have posted a review of the Oxford gig here


And there's one here of me and my step dad helping the lead singer Tim Booth down from our chairs;


I also plucked the courage up to stake out the stage door in Oxford as I have been trying for 16 years since James' Alton Towers gig in 1992 to get my long sleeve shirt signed. I met Saul Davies (guitarist/violins/percussion) and Dave Baynton Power (drummer) whilst they were having a quick ciggie. Saul offered to take my top in and get it signed by the band... swoon... amazing.

Am now gonna frame it and put it up in my living room to gaze at forever!

The support on this tour were a band called My Federation, fronted by Lee 'Muddy' Baker. I had a chat with these guys in Sheffield and what a nice bunch of chaps! Bought their CD in Oxford... go listen to it on amazon its called "Don't Wanna Die".

Anyway... go buy James'new album! Its on iTunes and in shops titled 'Hey Ma';

My friend passed away...

It is a sad sad day. My friend Sharon died last night. She had suffered with secondary lung cancer for several years now and had a bout of chemo yesterday (I think she knew what it would do to her) and collapsed just as she got back home.

They rushed her to hospital where she was put on a morphine drip. Thankfully her mum and cousin were there so she didn't pass over on her own.

I feel sorry for Malcolm, her close friend for 28 years who helped and nursed her through the past couple of years as he wasnt there at the end... In his own words;

"I missed the conception of Luke by 10 minutes, Luke's birth by half an hour and her dying by 20 minutes"

She passed in typical sharoney style...

Sharon, you touched alot of peoples lives and we will never forget you. I love you and hope you are somewhere better free from pain, looking upon us laughing at our daftness.

Sharon RIP - 6th July 2007.
