Wondering if this was the book you were talking about 2 years ago in that Cologne hotel? You said you were thinking of publishing it... What i read so far is really interesting

Later that evening played to an audience of ?????? at Brisbane Riverstage.
After the gig arriving back at our hotel, there were the 3 lovely loonies again, hugs and kisses all round then I baffled them with my little blue light trick, had a bit of a natter, then up to room call Leslie and get some kip.
The next morning at around 7am headed down to pay hotel bill, there they were again to see us off on the bus (to go to do the Tempus Wine Vineyard gig), had some lovely pics taken with our Aussie mates, more hugs and kisses and told them we'd see them in 2 years!!

How's that for memory BT, can you fill in anymore??

Hey paula...believe me I included everything, you guys got a mention sitting outside the hotel with your huge flag...

Nice read that Brian, how many pages all together and i'll agree with what you said to SK, if your a selfish git with no morals publish, if not put it away for your grandkids, exploits of the 20th century band.

Is this because of the respect they show their elders?!?!??

It sounds like many a thought and hours spent, gone into this book Brian. Being undecided about publishing it through reasons you've mentioned. but it would make an interesting read am sure.

nice one B

Great read BT, thanks for takign the time to give us a peek at it.
Really hope that one day you do decide to get it published, but can understand the reluctance to do so.
