Apologies for the image, I appreciate what a hard year this year has been for everyone. Unprecedented for all. The loss of Dave is still something that I am struggling to get my head around but equally we must consider those that are very much alive and struggling to get by when livelihoods have just been closed down overnight. Especially for those involved in the hospitality and entertainment sectors, the very same people responsible for pretty much my entire social life, I wish you better prospects for at least half of next year. I lost my opportunity to go to the pub or eat out with family or go to gigs this year but I did not lose my job and income and the security that comes with it. For that I am very thankful.
Let us hope that as soon as it is safe to do so, as best we can, we wholeheartedly support those to hammered sectors within our economy.
Raise a glass to Dave tonight and whilst you are at it raise another to the bands, road crews, studio staff, independent venue staff etc etc and hope for better next year.
All the Best!
