Let It Be

Well, that’s it. I’ve had enough. I’ve waited over a month and no one’s even been bothered, not even had the courtesy to email me, or blog or anything to say sorry.
Or recompense me for the money I had to shell out to Lug. Ten pounds - not to mention a round of drinks for Lug and all his regulars. And I had to buy that as they were a particularly mean looking crew. Especially the guy with the thick arms and tattoos of the devil up both arms and round his neck.
So there I was. Sitting at my drums, which I had to carry unaided up two bloody flights of stairs with a nasty bend halfway up, and I’ve got a bad back. All on my own. A drummer sitting all on his own – can’t be many things sadder than that. Except maybe a band without a drummer! Then I had to carry them all down again. And my van got a bloody parking ticket!
Needless to say we’ve missed the deadline for the commercial. No money there, then. And that could have been a good little earner. So I guess this is the end of the line. I should have let sleeping reprobates lie, let things be.
Anyway. That’s it! No point getting together now is there? I’m out. Goodbye.

I was a drummer once. Chicken.

Chicken drumsticks? That reminds me of that sad tale about Alfie "Swine" Lefevre who used to play the bones- chickens knuckle bones he said but i didn't think that poultry had knuckles? Anyway, he got lost on the way to a gig with Ted Fishington and the Crabmeat Five over in Landudno and he took a wrong turning or something an ended up in some terrible haunted village on the coast near Portmerion. This is what Ive heard anyway. He found a pub around dusk and just as a heavy smog was descending and went in to ask for directions but the place was empty except for some green slime. He found a phone and when he picked the reciever up he heard a tiny cracked voice say " I'd leave if I were you" - so he did.
He ended up crashing into a tree and spent the night wedged in the branches with severe lascerations.

Was he in a relationship with Severe Lacerations then? Why did they climb a tree together? All very odd if you ask me.
