ANOTHER YEAR,
ANOTHER
TOUR

 

  

by Chris Cooper

 

Not much time (again) for things FW. A mixture of work and other excuses too numerous to imagine or invent. Still much to do, guilt on my part about a decrease in my involvement in JG4 has fuelled my own concerns now about it all going OK. All we can do at this late stage is press on. I was pleased to see the enthusiasm in Keith Agar when he took up the reins of organizer. New blood is always a good idea. Things have to move on, equally poignant now with the sudden demise of Mike Sutton, another name collector literally on the tour. We are getting fewer, so new recruits are a healthy thing. Some sadness on my part that it was not other Freewheelers taking the lead here but thatís of lesser importance than the survival of the idea. The Kidda was a great guy, I donít want to forget him. I only knew Mike Sutton slightly, but I mourn any decrease in our numbers.

The very small audible evidence of the current tour that I have so far received sounds less than inspiring. St Louis (March 3) sounds like a tired man with a sore throat. And thatís pretty worrying a few shows into the tour. I hope things pick up, also heard the Chicago gig on March 5th, better performance but Bob still sounds more like he is going through the motions rather than going from strength to strength. Am I asking too much? Do I have the right to sit back and say ďimpress meĒ, possibly not. Someone once said, ďIf you cannot bring good news then donít bring anyĒ. I will shut up then. But I will be back next time re-energized after JG4. 

I will, Honest,

Hope you all will be too.

See you there??
