Subject: Will doesn't Fly
From: Alan Day
Date: 10 Apr 11 - 05:48 PM

Will took off from a stage five feet high to fly, without wings (a rare mistake for flier) sadly he crash landed with his fuselage suffering a possible cracked rib and bad bruising.Showing his heroism and "The Show must go on" professionalism he did his gig and furthermore one the following night.
I am sure you will join me in wishing Will a full recovery, but sadly I think his flying days are now numbered. To cheer him up I have written a Jazz tune for him (I will Email it to you tomorrow Will ). Up to today I was struggling with a title but "Crash Landing" it is.

Thanks folks. I had already referred to this in the "Diving into the mosh pit..." thread, but Day obviously hadn't read it. (He's getting on a bit you know - not as lithe and lissom or as sharp as me). But I look forward to hearing "Crash Landing"!

I'm finding that a diet of Paracetamol and Courvoisier is working wonders...

Oh dear, don't like the sound of that at all! But congrats for heroic fortitude above and beyond the call of duty (well, maybe not "above"...). If you're looking for a jazz piece, there's always One O'Clock Jump...

Speedy recovery Will! To a magnificent man sans flying machine.

Never tried stage diving into the audience myself, so full of admiration for Will giving it a go.

But seriously, loved your recent youtube links, so best wishes for a speedy recovery
And looking forward to lots more great tunes

My goodness, I'm so sorry you had that fall. But I'm really glad the injuries are no worse.

Don't blame Alan for not getting into the thread about the mosh pit. I didn't read it either. I thought it would be about over-eating.

But that would have been 'nosh pit,' wouldn't it? Sorry about that.

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple eater to me

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

Hi Will. Just seen this. Fell off the chair laughing and now I've got two cracked ribs....
Just joshing...it's only one rib. I sometimes fly in my sleep, which is probably the safest way. Hope you're back in the saddle soon. (Come to think of it, that's probably not a good idea either...)

Will he, won't he... :-) Tough luck mate. I fell in November and broke my wrist and there wasn't even anyone there to see it! One thing that did come out of it - Gas and air is a great thing (when they tried to reset it) but when that didn't work and they had to operate I found paracetamol and coedine (500/30) plus a bottle of something red doesn't half help!

Get well soon and take flying lessons before you try it again.

As for playing on and playing again the next night, "The show must go on!"... or there's no pay.

Still, I am sure it was for the love of the muisc and the entertainment of the downtrodden masses.

Do you get extras for physical damage?... tips, danger pay, whatever?

hi Will

As someone who has tried to fly from a stage also, may I wish you a speedy recovery.

What was injured most your pride or your back??

In my case it was my pride. I was so wound up in the number we were playing which ended in a huge crescendo before the interval that I completely forgot where I was and just stepped down as if it were just an ordinary step - not a five foot drop. Luckily I was bodily unhurt but I felt a complete idiot. Never did it again though !!

Painkillers and Courvoisier......hmmm sounds good to me.

Cheers

Mikel2
