Break a leg.

Hello everyone,

Sorry I’ve been a bit slack on the updates front. I do have a valid excuse this time though. Since Saturday I have been in hospital on enough Morphine to take down an Indian Elephant.

I broke my leg playing football and needed to be rushed to hospital for treatment. I broke both my Tibia and Fibia just above the ankle.

As soon as the tackle was made, I heard the crack and knew something wasn’t right. Unfortunately, human nature meant I tried to get up. I looked down to see my leg sticking out the wrong way and basically flapping like a flag in the wind.

I’m back in with theĀ specialist on Friday to decide whether or not surgery is required or not. Touch wood it isn’t.

Then I am in a wheel chair for a month, another two months of plaster and crutches and then the rehab starts. I don’t think I’ll be able to walk without help for around six months. Then 8 months until I can run.

If I want to play football again, it will be at least a year. Although I am not holding my breath that I’ll play again. The break was pretty horrific.

So there, that’s my excuse. Now bring me grapes! šŸ˜‰ x

Music Video, Charity Gig & Apparently, I’m Gay…

Hello all!

Hope you’re all good and stuff. It’s Valentines Day so I hope you got some nice gifts. Chocolates, flowers, condoms, whatever floats your boat. I didn’t get a card this year. But then why would I? According to this gentleman, I don’t even know my own sexuality.

Gareth Icke is gay.

This guy has dedicated an entire webpage, and VIDEO to the fact that I am gay. That’s some serious dedication I must admit. His proof is pretty overwhelming. Please check out the video for yourself.

His name is Chris Constantine and according to the BBC, he has ‘serious mental health issues’.

That was an interesting watch for me yesterday I must admit!

Anyway, back down to planet Earth.

I have completed the music video for ‘Remember who you are’. It’s now being put together and special affects added. I can’t wait for you to see it.

I won’t give too much away but in the space of 3 hours I blew out a girlfriend, got hit by a car, ran through a graveyard, and attended my own funeral. Just another normal day in North London.

As soon as it’s completed, the link will be spread far and wide. Much like my legs are as I’m enjoying another mans company.

Do you reckon Mr Constantine has a secret fantasy about me? Maybe.

On March the 9th I’m playing my last show on the Isle of Wight for quite some time. At the end of March I’m moving back up to Derby and won’t be around the South coast any more.

The show on the 9th is at The Wight Rock Bar in Ryde. It’s to raise money for my Sisters charity climb of Ben Nevis.

Bear Attack Club, This Way Up and myself will be performing. All for a mere Ā£2. Doors open at 8pm. Get your arse there! šŸ™‚

I shouldn’t really be talking about arses. I’ll give you all ideas.

Music Video.

Oi!

I am off up to the smokey metropolis we call London on the 9th of Feb, to start work on a music video for ‘Remember Who You Are’, The song was written to go alongside the release of my Dads book, of the same name.

The video will be shown on a massive screen behind me and my band when we play at Wembley Arena in October. Yes, you did read that correctly, Wembley Arena.

The idea for the video is wicked. It’s really thought provoking and interesting. I do hope you’ll like it!

I’ll get it up here as soon as I can. x

The Album Is Done!!!

Oi!

At last my second album is complete. It still needs mastering and mixing but as far as recording, our job is done.

Now I just need to sort out an album title and get it released and out into your eardrums.

The mixing and mastering shouldn’t take long at all so I’m looking for a release around the end of March.

One track off the album, ‘Remember Who You Are’ will be released well before that. I had a meeting in London on Friday to put together ideas for a music video to be released on YouTube by the end of February.

While the record won’t yet be for sale, it’s quite a cool way to advertise it’s release and get some interest around the internet. Well, that’s the plan anyway!

This is a self release and while that’s amazing because I get the record to sound how I want it to, it’s also down to me to sort everything else out.

Once it’s released, I’ll piece together a tour and hopefully come and play somewhere near you.

Until then, stay lucky. x

Album finished tomorrow…

Hey guys and gals,

I hope you had a lovely Christmas. Mine was blurry, but thems the rules in England.

I’m in the studio tomorrow to finish the album. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I really hope you like it!

Next year will be a good one. I can feel it.

Have a great New Years Eve. Be safe. Make love not war.

Merry Christmas…

Hey all,

Just a quick message to wish you all a merry Christmas. Not a religious man, but I am a beer and food man. So have fun being merry and friendly with each other.

Check out gandtippers.com to see what this weeks show is all about. It’s a Christmas Special y’know.

Be safe everyone. xxx

8 tracks done, 4 to go…

Hey folks,

I went into the studio today and blasted out the vocals on another 3 tunes. I have now completed 8 tracks and only have 4 more vocals to do before the album is complete.

I know it seems like it has taken ages but all together so far, it’s only taken 14 days. I have had to spread it out due to costs but to nearly have an album done in two weeks, is pretty impressive in my book.

The financial situation that musicians have to face is incredible. Did you know that my first album, It gets worse at night, was released on iTunes on December 7th 2009? That is nearly 2 years to the day, and I have still not seen ONE PENNY of the sales revenue that album generated. Pretty mad eh?

So for that reason, this album has taken longer due to the distinct lack of funds at my disposal. I guess that’s why so many acts these days come fromĀ privilegedĀ backgrounds and attended private schools. They need Daddies money just to fund their careers.

But, despite what you may have read about my family in the papers recently, I come from a normal working class background and therefore, funding an album takes it’s time.

They may have the funds, but at least I have the soul.

Basically, I just went round the houses to say, ‘Sorry it’s taken two years to come up with a second album’. I just hope you think it was worth the wait!

I was using the working title ‘The Non-Delivery Boy’ for the record. Based on the fact that I have promised much in several different areas and failed to deliver in each. Did you know I was once voted by Bob Wilson (Arsenal & Scotland) as ‘The most promising goalkeeper in Britain’? There’s a fact for you!

But despite not quite making it in football, Ice Hockey and music, I am very proud of what I have achieved.Ā Representing your Country is certainly not something to feel bad about. So for that reason, I have scrapped the title. It’s too negative. I want this album to be a positive thing. A rebirth after a couple of pretty horrible years personally.

Now I’m thinking the title ‘The long road to the middle’ is more fitting. Some people have bumpier rides than others, butĀ fundamentally, we’re all going to the same place. We’re all equal.
