So whats new?
Well another update: I've booked the flight to Faro for the 29th of July. Its a day earlier than Kay and Allie said but at least I can have a day of rest before the ROCK onslaught begins...! I've been reading through Kay and Allies blogs when I get chance, kind of to get to know them a bit more before I go, that way it saves time when I get there with all of the ...'So what do you like' 'what do you do?' etc. It also appears that their mother can be as embarrassing as mine!! HEEHEE! Its gonna be sooooooo much fun!

Two weeks and counting! Thats how long before I go to Portugal, I'm so excited. I hope that Allie and Kay will show me all the Rock hang outs and stuff. I'll have to take some rock albums to play loudly and hopefully introduce the Algarve to Sack Trick! I'm taking my digital camera to capture the adventure!

Ok so here's the score, Portugal for two weeks with two of the coolest people on the planet! Seems unlikely but no...Its true!! I am in the process of sorting out a flight. I wonder what the girls are doing for the rest of summer if I can't get there? It should be great!! I really can't wait! Any way the rumor in the Sack Trick camp is that two new albums are imminent! I cant wait for those either. So much excitement in my life at the moment and roll on summer! Stay Rock everyone!

Another Post, Another Day, Still annoyed with life!
Well Greece surprised the world with that victory! Its now only 8 working days till summer and I don't know what to do with myself. I really wanted to get out to Paris and see Allie and Kay but they're going to Portugal for the summer, but I'm planning on Kiss-mass and Easter to get across and Party with the girls. I read Kays post on relationships and got a strange sense of deja vu. Don't worry Kay guys go through that experience as well. I know I have and it sucked. Like I said before I always end up in the friendship zone and feel condemned to a life as 'THE BEST FRIEND!' But rather that and be a bastard right? There are worse things I could be.
At the moment I'm trying to get a couple of Bands together. I still have my solo project for which I will be retiring to the studio soon! I have a project where I get to be the front man - a kind of Indie Rock thing. Think Ash! - And also a 80's style thrash band with a cool guy called Rob - Think Anthrax, Slayer, Metallica and Megadeth! - I get to be rhythm guitarist in that!
So whats new? I was well impressed with the new SP4C3 site that went up recently - GO AL!! Just click on the Sack Trick web link on this page and follow the links to SP4C3! Chris Dale read my review on the Sack Trick albums and seemed well impressed! I hope he sticks it in his Press page on the Sack Trick site! I can't wait for Kay and Allies improved site! Maybe Allie will tamper with this site and make it look nice too!
Well thats all folks for now. I will return soon!

Blah Blah Blah
Good morning cats and kittens, the sun is shining and all that. So I'm into rock music then? Yes I am. Some of my favourite bands at the moment are
Manic Street Preachers
But I think my favourite musician is Alex Dickson
Here's what Kerrang! thought of him:
"GUN are a great band - a F****** monster of a great band...guitarist Alex Dickson puts in some serious shredding on every song. He can't be much more than four feet tall and is dwarfed by his blood stained guitar but come his solos, he explodes and jumps accross the stage, throwing shapes and breaking strings."
'Kerrang' circa 1992.
Here's what they said when he played for Bruce Dickinson:
Some people would say I'm quite obsessed really but here's more.
Here is a picture of Al in full flight!

The Beautiful Game
So football is nearly over for a while, back to the same old premier league and watching my team, as usual, flirt with relegation then pull off a mighty run near the end of the season. Kay and Allie are happy that Portugal are through to the Final and I hope greece get there too! My job is nearly over and at the moment I have non lined up! Maybe I'll just rock for a while.
