Welcome to another edition of my blog, may I add that this is my 90th post?
I expect a HA BISKY from one of you!
But yes, it's Saturday night and I felt in the mood to do a bit of writing.
Are you all well? I do hope so, if not, I hope things look up for you real soon, have a manly hug from me, I insist.
Alas, this week has been rather eventful. As I mentioned in my last rambling, I was told I'm depressed, and Monday I was given my first set of anti-depressants to try and help me out, I'm on 10mg a day of Citalopram, I started taking them just yesterday, I know they won't kick in for a little while, but day one, I was so hyper! I was literally running about everywhere, not had that much go in me for years, today I'm feeling mellow, taking it steady.
I just want to be able to feel like I did all those years ago, I'm just glad there are people out there who can help, very reassuring, to say the least, if I can wake up one day and not feel detached, if I can wake up and be able to truly focus without veering off into a state of idling, I'll feel as if I'm moving in the right direction!
|Framed: Live @ The O2 Academy 3|
So, last week, myself and the best band in the world, Framed, played The O2 Academy 3 in Birmingham, it was an eventful day, laughs were had all round, sound check went flawlessly, we sounded at our finest, I was all geared up, raring to go...
When we took the stage to kick off the set, the powersupply that powers my array of swanky pedals died, this was a definite setback, as my lush dotted delays, reverb and phaser, play a vital part in some of our songs, and with this gone, I had to do alot more, by simplifying what I play.
Besides the setback, we still played a superb set, and looking back on it, I can feel great because I did my best, and we sounded bloody good!
I'm still so grateful for being a part of the band, I'm glad they put up with me...
If you wish to watch the whole gig, click this to go straight to the YouTube playlist and enjoy!
With my new T-Rex Fuel Tank, and my Levy's No.1 Stretchy Guitar Strap arriving yesterday, I'm all ready for rehearsal tomorrow, for the next gig...
The above groovy, fabulous artwork was done by a dear friend of mine, Miss Kay Worley, who now is in charge of all Framed gig posters and gig photography, you should go check her stuff out on DeviantArt
In conclusion, with things looking up, I'm really looking forward to what 2012 will bring me.
Thanks for reading,
You're the best
