Hi Oliver,

Welcome to the forums, I think you'll like it here.

Just visited your web site, that's some guest list you've performed for.

Royalty is one thing, but I think performing for the other musicians would make me more nervous.

Best,

Frank B.

Thanks for the welcome. Entirely agree, Frank.

One night at The Ritz the lounge was alomost totally empty when who walked in - Neil Sedaka.

It would have been OK except i was playing Breaking up... at the time (slow version) and made a complete mess of all the great mans licks!

He didn't seem to mind! (or notice?)I find the true celebrities are the ones who dont act like celebs at all - just normal people.

Ta!
