Video gets 21,000 hits in 3 days & I get a new leg…

Hello,

 

I’m writing from my hospital bed. It’s been a weird couple of days in the life of moi.

First of all, a massive thank you to everyone that has checked out the video for ‘Remember who you are’. The track has now received over 21,000 views in it’s first three days online. That’s not bad going!

If you haven’t already checked out the video…here it is.

The track will be available for download from itunes, amazon, play.com etc in the next few weeks. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s up.

The rest or the album is currently being mixed and mastered and will also be available within the next month or so. The record, ‘A brand new battle’ features ‘Remember who you are’, as well as eleven more brand new tunes.

Again, I’ll keep you up to date with progress.

 

As I said earlier, I am writing from my hospital bed. So if there are any spelling mistakes, blame the copious amounts of morphine I have flowing through my system.

This is why I am here.

I’ve been pieced back together with 7 screws, a plate and a bone graph. That will teach me for playing football won’t it!?

I get out of hospital and it’s a long recovery of 6 weeks in a wheelchair, then 6 weeks using crutches. But what this extra time does mean, is plenty of booking gigs.

I’ll be booking up UK and European tours for July and August.

It’s all about being positive, and that’s not just the medication talking!

 

Peace. x

 

 

Charity Show This Friday & Music Video…

Hey everyone,

Hope you’re all well. This is the 4th day on the trot that I haven’t left the house. The reason for this?

Yep, that’ll keep you off your feet for a while!

I’m spending my days filling out ISRC codes for the new album (very boring) and watching reruns of Only fools and horses.

On Friday morning I go back into hospital where they make the final decision whether or not to operate. I’m hoping not for two reasons.

1. It’ll bloody hurt having my bone marrow drilled out and an titanium rod put down the middle of my Tibia.

2. I have a gig on Friday night.

Now normally I wouldn’t be so eager to be sat playing a guitar in a wheel chair while my heavily plastered leg is elevated, and exposed in a room full of drunk people. But this is for charity.

In May my big sister is climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland, for alzheimers charities. I figure, if she can climb the highest mountain in Britain, I can play some songs while off my tits on a cocktail of Tramadol, and German lager.

The show is at The Wight Rock Bar in Ryde, Isle of Wight. Doors open at 8pm and entry is only £2. All the cash goes towards my sisters charity fund. So please be a good sport and come along!

I’ll (touch wood) be playing about 8:30 with Tim Pritchard. Then This Way Up and Bear Attack Club will be finishing off the evening.

3 bands for £2? Fucking bargain!

The music video for ‘Remember Who You Are’ is nearly completed. I have seen a sneak peak and it looks awesome. It should be ready by the end of next week.

I can’t wait to get it out there and let you all have a watch. I hope you’ll enjoy it!!!

Right, I have some whiskey. It’s a treat. xxx

 

 

 

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.

Google image Aaron Ramsay leg break and you’ll get the picture.

I’m back in with the 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! 😉 x

G and Tippers first live music show!

Hello all!

This Thursdays G & Tippers Show is a first ever live music show. We have the wonderful Jono flying down from Glasgow to play live in the studio.

Jono will be playing the tunes that made him a favourite with BBC Radio DJs and fans across Europe, as well as some new unheard songs from his new album.

In honour of our guest, the show will don a Scottish theme. This means…

Loads of Scottish music.

Scottish challenges. (How many shortbreads can you eat in a minute?)

Prank calls to Scottish people.

Plus, we want you to tweet your ‘Englishman, Irishman, and Scottishman’ jokes.

I know the Irish tend to be the punchline in those jokes but A. We can’t offend Jono TOO much. And B. I couldn’t think of anything else.

Get your tweets in to www.twitter.com/gandtippers.

Check out Jono and his music at www.meandmyguitar.com.

7pm Tomorrow at www.vectisradio.com.

G and Tippers Theme!

OiOi!

This weeks show was meant to be a solo affair. Tim is in Spain making love by the pool, so I figured I’d be all on my todd. But I was wrong! This weeks show will instead be very very crowded!

The line up is as follows.

Moi, Steve, Roger, Rich & Turlough.

Our themes are a bit personal too. Valentines Day tales, favourite ‘Power Ballad’ but more importantly, we want to know about your FIRST TIME. No holding back. We want the details. Tweet us at www.twitter.com/gandtippers

Add that to some phone pranks, World record attempts, discussing the links between fat people and paedophiles, and god knows what else, and you’ve got a radio show.

www.vectisradio.com from 7pm Tonight. And don’t forget, you can also listen on your phone by downloading Tune In Radio for free.

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’.

BBC News.

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 £2. Doors open at 8pm. Get your arse there! 🙂

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
