Had an audition with a band called Goodfellas in Stoke - really nice blokes, great guitarist but they contacted me day after to say they couldn't rehearse any further south due to keyboard player being from Congleton.

Did some community service scrubbing down benches and picnic tables then painting them with wood preservative paint stuff with the Parish Council. Then came home and painted the inside front fence.
Monday 9th October to Friday 13th October 2017
Really busy at work so no time. Did some drum practice up in the attic. Have fixed the computer which kept switching itself off in the attic - the fan was full of dust and rubbish so will have to remember to hoover it out from time to time. So have got my recording facility back in place and getting some practice in.
In the evening we did a gig at Mayfield Memorial Hall for a charity event - went down well, raised over £2,000 and threw in four new songs - Highway Star, Fool for your Lovin, Free Fallin and Knocking on Heaven's Door. One (Heaven's Door) a request on the night which we had a listen to in the interval and then banged out. All good stuff.
Up early considering didn't get to bed until nearly 3am. Dog walked, papers fetched, unloaded Phil's van of drums into my car of drums. Good stuff. Rehearal/Audition with a band in Kilburn which unfortunately took place in a room with the worse acoustics I can recall but was okay. We shall see.

Up early. Dog walked. Cars washed. Watched Derby do Forest 2-0 at Pride Park. Lovely. Over to mum and dad's for tea for first time in ages after Lucy's footie team kept Buxton to a 0-0 draw which is great as they have thrashed Ashbourne in the past. Good, good.
