And I'm the one who looks about as beast-like as...er...something not very beast-like at all.
Glad this has sparked your interest Skipjack and you have got your mitts on some tickets - or, you will have when they get round to printing them.
The dates are now on Steveforbert.com which is a mine of info. I have been catching up on all the music I have missed since the last album of his I bought 10 years ago. Particularly recommended are Mission of The Crossroad Palms (1995) and Just Like There's Nothin To It (2004.
It is likely that we will be able to meet our hero. I hope I don't gibber and say something stupid like "your stuff's quite like Bob Dylan, isn't it?" (which it isn't). He'll be solo without a band because,frankly, despite it's name, you couldn't fit a band on the stage of the Band Room! The only way you could get a band in is to remove the audience.
Sir John, good to hear from you. The CD was only 4 quid actually. Do go to the Box of Goats thread (it's off the front page at the moment but look it up) and there is a link to my web page where the latest offering from Nick and I (as Box of Goats) can be downloaded for free. I played it last year and you bought my CD on the strength of it although that particular song wasn't on the CD. Well, now you can hear it again (Struck Twice By Lightning).
