Summer Tour entry one
Today is July 11th and we are in Salt Lake City, Utah. I've
unloaded my merchandise and the inventory counts are finished.
The crew is waiting around for the bands to arrive and do soundcheck.
Its the calm before the storm.
So far so good on this run.... but then again its only day two.
First day of rehearsal in Denver, I arrive at the venue. The band
had arrived the day before. I go in to the dressing room to say
hello to Ann, and she says she wants to show me something. I
think its a piece of jewerly or something, because she's moving her
sleeve, and low and behold... it was a new tattoo on her right arm
(elbow to wrist). Its a floral tattoo of
Iris's. At first i thought that it was painted on because
it looked so bright. Then I realized it was because it was so
Ann said that for her first tattoo it wasn't as bad as she thought it
was going to be. She decided to get the Iris's in memory of thier
mother Lou. It really is beautiful. She asked me what she
should be putting on it, and i suggested what i use on mine... (and
yesterday during the day off I picked it up for her).
Here are some random thoughts...
Arnel (the singer for Journey) looks like he just won the lottery, his joy is contagious.
Cheap Trick is awesome. So fun to watch.
Robin Zander introduced himself to me - "Hi, I'm Robin, I'm a friend of Ann Wilson's" (sooo sweet)
Nancy's laugh makes everyone happy
until next time ~
