Fade to Grey, originally uploaded by Rich in Orderly Manor. Best show of the tour? Tonight we were at House of Blues Orlando. Without causing offense to the good residents of this area, i wasn’t getting my hopes up for this place from the minute i got off the bus and saw the massive Disney ...

The Psychedelic Furs, originally uploaded by James Good. Not much sleep. Mars, Paul and I have a dip in the warm, warm Atlantic by the hotel day room. Too much sun so far this trip? Never. I’m turning into a lobster though. James takes a half day off and picks us up in the no-AC ...

Cheap thrill, originally uploaded by Rich in Orderly Manor. Mars made me go jet-skiing. It was probably the funniest thing we’ve done on this tour. Screaming and trying to throw each other off with the wake. Terrible. One day the inner-adult will shine through. Shame we didn’t get the whole band out really; though it ...

The Psychedelic Furs, originally uploaded by austinistdotcom. Austin was a mind blower! Definitely a best show contender. Audience and band energy was really high tonight; outdoor stage was great despite earlier rains, sound was awesome, lights were moody… Met some very cool people who took us out for a drink afterwards. Can’t say enough good ...

we drove forever today. Did some work, watched the Miles Davis story that i’d swapped with Jonn (Mondays) for Fearless Freaks, and tried to imagine i could stop in the desert of New Mexico. Stopped in El Paso after 700 or so miles. Wandered over to some Texican food with R, M, P and T ...

Day 14: Las Vegas

A night drive let us out in Vegas for a badly needed day off. I barely slept so Andi and I explored a little but decided that our room is the best place in Vegas (THE hotel suite upgrade re-enforced this thinking). A quiet moment thank you.. We did run into Yogi in the lobby ...
