I thought I'd give you a bit of insight into what life was like being in a band and on the road. It was a long time ago, it was fun but sometimes the long hours on the road in the van with a bunch of blokes just all got a bit much, but mostly it was fun!
I love this one of me and Paul
On the road on our first ever trip abroad many many many years ago
Our second trip abroad to the rather glamorous location of Nice, however sharing a room with 6 other blokes wasn't so glam!
When you travel with a band most of your life is spend in the van, it's like another member of the band!
You do get to visit some lovely locations though, that is definitely one of the upsides!
You do spend a lot of time just passing the time though, one of my favourites was table football, bet you didn't see that coming!!
Backstage is for downtime and getting out of sweaty clothes after a show, I do love this shot, just shows how hard the guys worked that night and how hot it was!
I really love this shot, getting ready before the curtains open, people don't often see this. I also love that dress, is was an apricot silk organza but was so delicate it just starting falling to pieces :o(
And last but not least an onstage shot, this was one of my favourite dresses ever, it came to a sticky end when I tore it on the drum kit, how sad is that. This was the point I started to have dresses custom made for onstage as wrecking vintage ones saddened me so much!
I do hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane!
