First really crap pun of the year... Ã‚Â© Total Blam Blam
Coming Tuesday I feel better...
The angel-voiced Queen of Bass, commonly known as Ms Gail Ann Dorsey, is set for another of those special evenings that leave everybody I know more than impressed every time they're lucky enough to witness one.
I'm going to have to wait a little longer it seems...but, only until the 20th when she will be playing London, England. More of which in a second.
Meanwhile, for those of you in NYC on Tuesday, you may find the following information useful...

The very stylish
Find out what side of the fence GAD was on regarding David's recently-removed face furniture, and indeed what she thinks of me! I'm saying no more on the subject, suffice to say I am hugely flattered and more than a little embarrassed by her kind words.
However, lest I suffer any delusions of grandeur, my daughter Holly helped keep my feet firmly on the floor, after reading what Gail had to say, then shrieking with laughter and enquiring: "Has she actually met you?" Kids of today, eh? No respect.
