Sometimes one ends up taking a break somewhere almost at random, or at least because it’s somewhere the trains seem to be running to across Easter weekend. Hence Heather and I found ourselves heading to Nottingham on what turned out to be a gloriously sunny extended weekend.
Very sad and shocked to at the news that Taylor Hawkins has left the party. He always seemed to love the life, and was one of the few who could step in as drummer with Dave Grohl in front of him. Here he is giving it some in London back in 2018, a gig I was lucky enough to be at.
And from a bit later the same show, doing what he loved, blasting out some vocals on a Queen cover
A few years ago I went to see the Twelve Snowmen of Christmas in London, so when news came they would be in Bromley it seemed worth a look. Along came Heather, Gemma, and Gem’s Uncle Peter and partner Alice.
Still catching up, and last gig before catching bloody Covid curtailed plans (we will return to see some of those bands!). Anyway, the gig which may have given us the lurgy in the first place, The Charlatans at Brixton Academy.
