Off to Leicester today! I've just tested Covid-negative, although I have horrendous hay fever. I'm on stage at 8.50, having swapped with another band as I now have to get the train back to London instead of driving.
Usual gig nerves: Will the fingernails on my right hand hold out? Will what I've chosen to wear make me overdressed? Will I remember the lyrics? Will my fingers be a packet of sausages on stage and refuse to do what I ask them to? Will my guitar fall off? (it did that once at The Lexington)
Just about to eat musician's dinner- huge and pie-based- so I don't get struck hungry and have to resort to café food in times of austerity.
