Tallinn Estonia πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ͺ

First time here and it’s a quite nice place

Of course it’s half way through their flower 🌷 festival so hell for us hay fever sufferers

Venue is a ruin of a monastery from 1417 not what I expected at all but they sounded great with the acoustics

Flight home tomorrow for 2 days then onto Sweden πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺ where I get to catch up with a fellow Brit and great friend of mine at Sweden rock festival

These were taken at Helsinki on the layover

And this is the view from the rooftop bar at the hotel in Tallinn

Jack Daniels distillery πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ so it must be Thursday

Morning off so what to do nothing but head off to the distillery

Have been here before but last time it was in the fall so better to see some shade and sunshine around the place

Nothing new there as you come to expect but as I’ve gotten older I can take it or leave it when it comes to drinking the stuff

Off to North Carolina next for another festival , then onto Virginia and then home which is the best part

Wednesday in Nashville πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

So it’s another beautiful hotel here in Tennessee this festival run really is flying by , after headline show tonight there’s just 2 more festivals and then I’m home for 10 days

The union station hotel reminds me outside a little bit of the house in the movie πŸŽ₯ CLUE wouldn’t minded for tim curry having been there but a girl can dream !

Weather is still warm β˜€οΈ without being too hot be interesting to see what summer in Europe and the U.K. have in store weather wise

Time off in Miami !!!

So Miami has won my heart πŸ’“

When you get a private beach like this from the hotel there’s nothing to do but relax

Was just the time off I need – been able to relax and just chill out , clear my head before moving onto Georgia later today

A career like this would be near impossible to do with kids back home the cats 🐈 cause enough worry at times

Festivals are going well really can’t accept stone temple pilots with an X factor muppet as the lead singer

Bit of course ozzy ruled the evening

And of course Corey is being amazing with the fans.

Oh well back to my overdosing on melon πŸ‰

On the road again πŸ₯ 🎸 πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ€ 🎀 🎡 🚌 πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ

So after a few months of r and r we’re back on the road for 10 days

Smooth flight ✈️ over from the U.K. to the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ well Atlanta !! Layover and then onto Daytona beach

All the times I’ve flown into or from Atlanta I’ve never worked out what this is on the ceiling

But the little toilet for any furries 🐢 or cat 🐱 that are flying internal was cute toilet 🚽 you lock the door like you would with a human toilet 🚽 and sort your furry person out

Managed to get a decent 9 1/2 hours sleep 😴 obviously needed it but today I’ve felt more than drained than I usually do also feel stressed for some reason so just had a look round the mall

And then walked down to the Main Street and beach where I am now

Band dinner πŸ₯˜ tonight , then we have our first festival of the year tomorrow in Jacksonville 🎡 then onto Miami on Sunday for another festival music 🎢 in Sunrise Florida and some time off – never been to Miami so looking forward to a quickexplore

And so the end is near…

So we’ve made it to the end of this leg of the tour and I have never seen so much snow in such a short time

As I write we’re in Indianapolis the photos and video were fish ladder park in Grand Rapids

So once tonight is done with there’s no sleep for the wicked – I had a choice of getting a later flight and getting home on Tuesday or leaving literally at the crack of dawn (5:30am including a layover ) to get back “home” tomorrow so being the insane fool I can be I went for that

No more road life now till end of April – I’ll probably be going stir crazy in a few weeks when I am back to the studios base after nearly a year in London and will be climbing the walls

But once April starts it’s all go to the middle of July with festivals and U.K. dates then I’ll be complaining I’ve had enough of touring !!

Days at sea and Nassau

So we set off Sunday afternoon bang on time

First night on board was getting my sea legs so to speak and trying to find our way round what is to be home till Thursday

Haven’t slept so well on tour in ages as I did on the boat – whether it was the rocking I don’t know but woke up totally refreshed

Today has been a shore visit to Nassau third time for me here

That was a speeded up sunset on Sunday evening

So the band are headlining tonight and we have a shore day at half moon cay tonight

I love my job but there have been times today when memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheek
