They never returned no they never returned
And their fate is still unlearned
They will ride forever on the roads of Europe
They’re the band that never returned
We were talking about our flights back on British Airways on the 26th – will we really fly back home then or will the strike cancel our flights?
It will cost a bundle of money to rebook our tickets – so much so that we may never be able to fly home again. We had a good laugh about that. We would all just get back on the bus and keep moving – call our agent Nick and have him book another 6 weeks of shows. It wouldn’t be the worst thing that ever happened. Park even said he would be fine with having 10 days off, go home, feed the dogs, mow the lawn, pay some bills then come back and start another tour. A silence fell over the dressing room when he said that….. just a momentary consideration about how we could each make that work. We were all fantasizing about the call back home……”Honey, we’re going to be a little delayed……….”. We all miss home too much for that to ever happen but it just illustrates how much fun we’ve had over here.
Dresden was amazing. One of the most beautiful cities we have seen …..a wonderful concert. In Kempten, one day later, the day was so warm we all sat out in the parking lot basking in the sun….. great crowd that night. We’ve got three shows left…… We’re “gonna miss your town……” when we go.
