13/4/09 - Interesting gig at the Wishing Well on Saturday. I took a guitar I'd just customised but forgot to solder the bloody electrics back together so it didn't actually work!!!

Thanx to everyone who clapped - next stop is the Bay Horse in Horwich on 25th April - see you there!

16/12/08 - The Cooler Kings did our last gig of 2008 at the George in Darwen and what a great gig it was. Thankyou to all the people who supported the band in 2008 and we look forward to seeing you all next year. As for me, still working hard writing and recording songs for a new TLBB cd with Rob and always churning out blues songs for another blues cd. My new Strat ("Poppy" - so named because she wore a remembrance day poppy on her headstock for weeks), is shaping up nicely and has been gigged several times already. Happy Christmas and a peaceful new year to all... oh yeah, did I say thankyou....thankyou :o)
