Thank you sir! Yeah, it did better than I did! It’s always scary when you don’t know what gear is going to show up but they had a great crew. First show got it up and running 5 minutes to show time and the laptop couldn’t see my sound interface- bad USB cable! Got it swapped and all was good. Last show I had bad pops all through the first 3 songs, which never happens and then -a screen informing the laptop was about to power down from low battery power. It wasn’t plugged in. Got that solved and went on. Had a great time- we got to play with Yes singer Jon “Juano” Davison for the first time ever on-stage even though he sang on 3 albums with us!
I’ve also been caught out by forgetting to plug the laptop into power before!
And we of course live on the adrenalin rush of going to the wire before show time! I keep reminding myself that no one would watch a James Bond film if he saved the world with a week to spare…
Glad it all went well (and that you got to gig with Jon), and it’s nice to see some of the folks here appear in print. I haven’t myself made the cover of the rolling stone yet, but have made it to the “inside of the teivyside!” (local paper in Cardigan, Wales!)
