Highway to Hell

HI All,

Er..Carl here. Um, on my way to er, a met up in um, Warrington. A bit of a er, whatya call it, er, um, brainstorm session.

Don't have much time as I er, um am driving and it is er, a bit um, difficult to steer holding a mobile and er, um a hand held um, dictation machine. Using my knees to steer.

I hate the M6 and er, um anything vaguely Northern.

er, er, ahh. Good news about the get together. We could always record er, the drum and um, then overlay the guitar in the er, um studio. As for live er, stuff, we could um hire someone.

Oi! Watch where you're going you deformed understain you should be watching out for me swerving. Haven't you heard of observation on motorways?

Er, sorry. Some idiot wasn't watching where I was going.

Gotta rush.

Ciao and out!

Build me up Buttercup

Hello chaps!

Sorry about the mix up witht the ketamine.

Understand ppperfectly how you both must have feltt. Old Bonzo's at it again. Not so my merry mates, not so but my dear old missesss has explained my stupid cock up to you already.

Have to say that it is a bit difficult to writte at the mo as I have my busted leg in plaster and the poor old stump iis hoisted up on high to prevent clotting. Not me you understand as I became fully 'clotted' years ago!!

My ribs are ssoore and wasn't helped much when this large nurse waddled in the other morning with an armful of bed linen. Apparently she had come in to change my bed, didn't see thee old bottle that I had recently filled that was laying on the floor and went arssee over ttip and fell onto my ribs. If they weren't sore before they sure as hell are now. She was a big lump of a girl to.

'Cor! Not 'alf.

Good to see ' organ morgan' back in the frayy. As soon as I am able to get out of bed I am up for the get togetther.

If in the meantime any of yyoou blokes have got a long wooden spoon that you can spare, please send it to me as my leg is itching like crazy!

Yours in blood, booze and bandages.

I Want To Teach the World to Drink Champagne

Hello Everyone,

Well, well, well. It is getting exciting. I hope we can all keep it together this time. Seems like we have us a band! Chas on rhythm guitar, Bonzo on bass, Carl on keyboards and myself on drums. We just need a lead guitarist if anyone’s got any ideas. I’ve tried finding Richard on Friends Reunited etc but no luck. Either he doesn’t want to be found or he’s gone to that great rehearsal studio in the sky. I could play the guitar of course, I’m getting quite good now, and we could find another drummer!!!???

I was going to book us in at my mate’s rehearsal studios in King’s Cross but he wanted too much money – so I’ve called in a favour. Remember that pub we used to rehearse in behind the King’s Road? I won’t mention it by name – don’t want lots of fans turning up (Ha ha!) Well, Lug, the landlord (remember him?) said we can have the upstairs room for the evening for a tenner. So – a week on Friday. That’s the 13th. Be there or be rectangular.

If you want to stay over you can kip on my floor. I’ve got a very comfy sofa bed. And it won’t be the first time we’ve all shared. (Although I will obviously be sleeping in my bed. ) By the way – good to hear from you again Miss Harpie – or should we call you Caroline now? And I hope you and Chas will let bygones be bygones. Maybe you can keep that reprobate Bonzo in order this time.

Chances of the Southern Welcome thing coming off are pretty slim now. They say we’ve taken too long and they need a decision. Well, all they really want is our signature to say that they can use the tune and change the words very slightly. I could just say yes – but I think we need to record it ourselves to get the most from the deal. It could re-launch our careers after all – and that could mean big bucks. I don't suppose anyone knows where the original tapes are do they?

Think what I Want To Teach the World to Sing did for The New Seekers.

Exciting times. Hope you’re all up for this.
Yours in music
