2013 is almost over. And what a banner year it has been – Now What?! has made its mark and stormed up many a chart around the world giving the band a positive springboard for next year. Touring is over for the year and we had some killer gigs and a lot of fun – London, Paris and St Petersburg stand out but that’s not to diminish any of the others at all; every gig is valued.
It’s been forty-five years since Hush and it feels like the band is riding yet another crest of yet another wave. And it’s all down to you. We are a lucky band indeed to have such a great and loyal following. Thank you. Edel:earMUSIC have done a stellar job and we also owe them a big thank you.
It’s a rare privilege to walk out on stage and have fun doing what we enjoyed doing when we were fifteen. I never take that for granted. I am, however, in danger of taking our management, agency and crew for granted; they do such a quiet and professional job that each tour seems seamless.
I was sent so many birthday messages that when printed out and laid end to end – and if the emotions they contained could somehow be quantified and printed also – they would easily reach from my heart to your front door.
My lovely family and I wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season, brimming with peace, love and understanding. And what’s so funny about that?
