It has been a funny old week, and now we are finally in a world we are used to, winter…oh ok, Autumn. Still, its nice to be in the studio as always playing great music. We spoke of the big John Wayne costume sale….$180.000 for a Green Beret, worn by Mr Wayne in the classic gung-ho film- ‘Green Beret’. I was kind of after the Rooster cockburn Eye patch myself, but lost it to a bidder of $40,000!! – was that you Eddie Curry?
Todays toofers was for a man, a legend and soon to be married a third time – Sir Paul McCartney. So as he is getting wed today, we say…break a leg; oh no….thats his ex… I mean have a lovely day – We played ‘Jet’ by Wings and ‘Ticket to ride’ by The Beatles.
