Noel Takes in Some Late Night Piano Covers
From Noel Gallagher's 'Tales from the middle of nowhere' tour diary.
Yes..well been mad busy. Lot's to tell. So . . . where were we? Barcelona right?
The trip from Barcelona to Paris was uneventful as you would imagine. Landed in the rain and rushed across town to sit in a cold room for 3 hours waiting to do some bizarre tv show where me and 6 other French people occupied some kind of rustic dining table for a casual chat while they ate desert!! For real!!!!! As you can imagine it was a bit awkward. Me . . . not knowing the lingo had to wear an ear piece what had an interpreter translating the conversation into my lug-hole. Still had no fucking idea what they were on about.
The gig in Paris was great. It was in a place called Grand Rex Theatre. Incredible upholstery!! The seats would most definitely have been stolen had it been in England!! 2 of that band The Strokes were there . . . Fab and Albert to be exact. I ain't seen them for long time..cool cats man.
Had a brilliant night out after.stumbled into an empty restaurant at fuck knows what time to catch 2 french dudes - one on piano and one on the guitar - playing that song "harvest moon" by Neil Young. What followed was mega. They started taking requests. . . well at least I think they did . . . and before you know it it was 5am!! They went through every genre of music I've ever heard of!! 50's,60's,70's,80's . . . they stopped at the 90's though thankfully. My lovely good lady wife kept them on their little French toes with a barrage of 80's demands what peaked with "the wham rap"!!! It really was fucking mega. Needless to say the next day was spent nursing a rather sore head. Well worth it though. I LOVE PARIS!
So...last night's gig here in Hamburg was ok . . . not bad . . . if I'm being honest I was still feeling it a little bit from Paris. Someone - they were definitely german - kept shouting out, clear as day, in between songs . . . "KEVIN KEEGAN!!!!"????????????? Indeed.
Off to Berlin just now.
