Its amazing how my family - parents, sisters etc. - don't change. I think it was less than a fortnight of speaking to them on Facebook before they started slagging me off. Why? Is it because I asked my lil 'sis' to not encourage my son calling me an "old git" online when its my business site? Is it because I told her about Margaret's penchant for codeine and related painkillers? Is it because I told her that her father - my step-father - had tried it on with me when I was 21? Or was it because I said she had to get pissed to sleep with her husband (and only boyfriend ever)? Or was it because I said "I've already published the first couple of chapters of my autobiography"?
My son, Richard told them where to put their insults, bless him.
On the other side we have been offered two more charity gigs, These for the Syd Barrett charity for mental illness. The first one is at the Forum in Tunbridge Wells, UK, on June 17th 2010. It sounds like a good night. Several bands are on. Turn up if you can. Its for a good cause.
