London, England #3... 1 June, 2010

Day 2, no hot water. Various band members are going to other hotels or down to the Albert and having a shower there. Not me...I toughed it out only due of laziness, putting off the event until the last possible minute this afternoon.

We're into a comfortable routine in our residency and tonight's show, the third of the run, was another sold out night and another great audience.

Back at the hotel, run the hot tap and stick my finger under it in hopes of feeling some warmth. The note under the door this evening begins..."Dear Guest,
I regret to inform that we are still facing difficulties receiving replacement parts from the North of England. Consequently the hot water will be restored and back to function no sooner than 10:00 p.m. tonight"....and so on. It is nearly 1 in the morning as I peck this out. No hot water. Stay tuned for day 3.

So long,

Richard
