Ever feel life gets repetitive ?!!! Ha ha – I’m probably the last person to the party on Boomeranging. But the incomparable Ms Ellis is an expert ! Having delivered a truly sensational countreeee oriented vocal today, she engineered this masterpiece ! Thanks Kerry Ellis. All this has nicely distracted me from the fact that I’m now headed back into town for a small ‘procedure’ which I haven’t been looking forward to – but should make my life a bit easier eventually.
I’m done ! After a snip to my calf muscle, I’m feeling good !
The theory is that it will release the excess tension in my Achilles’ tendon and get me out of a painful heel situation I’ve been in for many months. I had the problem all through our last tour of the USA – and although adrenaline got me through, my running around was severely curtailed, and there were a couple of nights when I really couldn’t move at all around the stage (nobody noticed, it seems !. So now I’ll be taking it easy just a bit for a while, but full recovery should be just in time for getting back out on tour in January – hopefully with a good pair of heels ! THANKS for your good wishes, folks. No cause for alarm.
A night out ! At London’s O2 Arena (Sunday 1 December 2019).
To see Elvis !! And – especially for me – James Burton playing live with a Elvis on screen. James is the guy below to the right in the Brian May red shirt ! ( it’s a coincidence – but we like it !) In the next shot you see a younger James on Screen with Elvis en vivo – and we hear James in 2019 playing along to the image of himself. Then backstage I was entranced by some moments with Priscilla Presley – who powers the show – and the inimitable James and his lovely Louise. I was moved. Full circle on my musical life. Grateful.
Brian May O2 Elvis In Concert, London 01/12/2019
No – I never got to meet Elvis, or even see him perform live. Much to my sadness. But it was lovely spending some time with Priscilla, his beautiful wife, and hearing some of those Elvis stories first-hand. Notably, for people like us who perform, it’s always interesting to hear that everybody gets nervous before a show. Priscilla told me Elvis was always incredibly anxious before he went on, and I saw the same comment about Luciano Pavarotti in that excellent documentary recently. It’s good for us to know that even the great and powerful still feel that fear in the belly, and perhaps that’s what makes them perform to the max.
