I've been meaning to write. I really have. I'm not sure if I've been waiting for something significant to write about or ... if I've just been putting it off for no good reason.
It's not like I haven't been busy. So busy in fact that I decided to reschedule plans for a round of solo shows until after the new year. I just didn't have the time to properly prepare for any in December.
Right now I'm in the UK. Stoke on Trent to be exact. Someone with extremely deep pockets has Meat Loaf and the band performing at this Birthday Party. Tomorrow I will be in someones backyard with the rest of the guys rubbing noses with the upper echelon of Stoke on Trent's elite.
The Todd tour was more than fun. Although the venues were small and there weren't very many days off, the audience's made it all worth it. I don't have the chance to play on the west coast all that much so, it was good to reconnect with those people I don't see as much as I do when I'm touring in the States.
I'm on my way back home on Sunday for a week off then, right back to Koln Germany for the start of the last leg of the Bat III tour.
It's been a long year. One that has seen me on three separate tours. I think thats a record for me.
I'm going to take December and January to work on some new material. A few things are already recorded and waiting to be finished. My plan remains the same. More solo shows in 2008.
I'll make sure to keep you all in the loop on the upcoming Meat shows and once again, I get to miss Thanksgiving at my Sisters house!
