..so I spoke with Jon (the vocalist) and we came to the conclusion the way forward was to inform Dom M that he was gonna be in this gig for his birthday. Sure it would no surprises but I mean come on, after 15 years would you like to stand up and have to play some bass parts you have not touched in as long? No, of course you wouldn’t.
So I then spoke with Dom W (the drummer) and relayed the conversation Jon and myself had had, (why am I the messenger here?) and Dom W said he’d hook up with Dom M’s mother to explain the need for her son to NOT have this surprise put upon him, when let’s face it he’d probably getting really pissed or stoned, but instead give him a chance of a rehearsal with the gang so he could have a REALLY good birthday.
So a few days pass (Jon putting a set CD together) and my phone rings and there he is Dom M soon to be 40 birthday boy! Mum had spilt the beans and he was very happy to have been informed, in fact he did iterate how pissed off he would have been had he been thrown well in the deep end.
So that’s the state of play for the reunion gig at the Flying Horses…. more soon.
