Another great new gig to get under my belt this week. Rod Clements was one of the original members from the band Lindisfarne and for those of you who dont know who they are then youre probably either too young or youve been locked in the basement by your dodgy father who only feeds you on a sunday!!
Me and my beard!!
Anyways.. Derek from Acoustic Magic managed to sort this out for me and got us the gig supporting Rod Clements at Bubbles in Ashington…what a belta and it was amazing to share the stage with such a Legend!!!!
The running order was Clear Blue Skies, Hague, Myself and then the Fabulous Rod Clements who blew me away with his fingerstyle and slide guitar playing. Having already had a listen on his myspace I didnt really no what to expect from him playing solo but was pleasently surprised .. Damn he can play!!!!!!!
The night went great and Hague pulled a new song out the bag especially.. and also his Tightrope Walking song ,which was the last one he wrote I believe, is slowly becoming my favourite of his set!!
Clear Blue Skies had there usual mental banter about them while standing on one leg…. and Derek gave me a shot glass with a straw in it while I was on stage which…. turned out to be lager??? hahahha… oh and it was also Hairys birthday so he got the dedication of Land Down Under on the night..
We also got the chance to get our photos taking at the end of the show with Rod and thanks to Terry T-Shirt for doing all the photography on the night once again!!
Hahaha Check out the finger!!
Hairy with his belly out!!
All in all another great gig for Acoustic Magic which keeps on going from strength to strength..
So to all the Acoustic Magic team , Rod Clements and Hairy for his birthday!!!
