Big Band rehearsal tonight. the guvnor handed out some new music. OK, so the ABBA stuff's ok for those who like it and it'll pay some bills; unlike Making your Mind Up. Oh, well.

But, what's this? "Crazy Little Thing Called Love?" Yee ha! I get to be Brian May on stage, in public - one of my heroes

And, there's more. Beatles Medley Number 3. Guess who gets to play that iconic solo in "Get Back"

I always felt "Get Back" would be a fun song to play live. [or at all] Its on my list of stuff to learn one day.

Congrats, Alan. Hope you knock it out of the park.
Are you going with your existing gear? If not, I fear for your fireplace. :)

But the hair, Al - whacha going to do about the bonnet?

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

He can borrow some of mine if he wants...I'm about ready for the biennial haircut. Or as I say to the barber, "just wave the scissors past my head - I'll say I've had a trim, and no-one'll know the difference. We'll split the money between us...."

Love both those songs, Alan - have fun playing 'em!

:D :D :D
