My songs ain't writ on papuh... them words, they just come to me while I sing. That's a true God-given talent I was borned with. Only real blues singers like me can make songs on the spot. No mutha's gonna teach you that - Guitar Gabriel, PTCBW 1995 in a semisober moment responding to a naïve student who asked "where ideas for his songs come from?"

Ghostrider in Great Britian!
« on: September 28, 2010, 05:22:21 AM »
Ladies and Gentlemen of the GB Persuasion:

I'll be in Great Britain for two weeks starting in mid-Oct., my first overseas vacation ever. I'm anxious to check out what became of my left-behind ancestors in the 180 years since my family left for Canada.

I'd like to get in contact with as many GB Weenies as possible whilst I'm there. I'll post where I'll be in a few days, but if you'd like to meet a tall, incredably good looking Canadian Weenie (no cracks now, Slack and Unkie Bud) and maybe play some tunes, either post here or PM me off list.

Looking forward to meeting some of you,
Alex

But...  It's common knowledge down here in the US that all Canadians are tall and incredibly good looking!    ;D

Will you be doing the entire country or selected bits, I suppose after the size of Canada this must seem like an afternoon trip!

A pox on Unkie Bud  ^-^

My itinerary is to head to Devon-Somerset area for 4 days or so at the beginning of the trip (Oct. 14-18) and  train into London from the Gatwick area for the last 4 or so days. I have no concrete plans for the middle 5 days and would love to practise my driving-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-road skills.

Might have a '33 L-00 with me.... Again, I'd love to get together.

Howdy:

Well today I'm in Totness, in south Devon, soaking up the oldness. Off to Chillaton, Lifton, Devon tomorrow, Wells in two days then to Horley near Gatwick. Still time if any of you are interested. Last week, Blues in Bath!

I don't believe it! We just had a holiday down there a couple of weeks ago in a hamlet called "Quither" outside Chillaton. Good basic pub grub in the Chichester Arms. Good fish & chips in Tavistock as well.

And while I'm on here, Alex, how come you haven't accepted my offer of friendship on Facebook yet??

Have a great time.

And what's the fascination with the west country then, is there family connection or something? You could have appeared at my gig in Bristle last week.. there's always next year!
