We both have heavy colds, thank you to xxxx (no name mentioned here but you know who you are) We love you Glen! Ooops name slipped out (:
I was worried about the flight to Perth but the Lemsip saved the day and all went smoothly, the last time I flew with a cold it was into Switzerland and I got a sinus and ear infection afterwards.
I cannot say that things were totally smooth once we got to the hotel in Perth, Ori got trapped in an elevator! She was in there for over an hour and a bunch of us waited outside the jammed doors trying to make a bad situation bearable by chatting and keeping up her spirits as best as we could. She kept really calm and sat down.
All ended when the hotel finally got the engineer there, an upgrade quite rightly followed.
The new W2MN album is getting great reviews, some people don't get it but of course that is to be expected. The vocal effect on 'I Am Made Of You' seems to be dividing people, the purists think it's over the top or uneccessary but I personally think it fits the track perfectly.
Steve's solo on that song is getting some well deserved attention and for those reviewers who don't seem to have read the credits, Steve played on every basic track apart from 'Last Man On Earth''.
He did solo's on:
'I Am Made Of You'
'I'll Bite Your Face Off'
'Something To Remember Me By'
'When Hell Comes Home'
'What Baby Wants' and a large portion of the 'Underture'.
My only other comment on this subject is that I think the song 'When Hell Comes Home' is simply genious! Well done to Michael Bruce, Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin.
Below is a pic of catering for the band and crew in Melbourne, it does vary from venue to venue and country to country but on the whole it's extremely yummy, as was this!
