Molly of Richmond
So the last few days were really fun, let's see...I ate a pasty, went to St.Paul's , watched the changing of the guard and.... hahaha actually I cannot overstate how much fun it was to visit The Attic and see our blog compatriots. Rachel Fuller is so lovely and every inch a star, plus a classicaly trained prodigy, a chanteuse, an irreverant wit, a loving pet owner, a true gal pal etc it seems as if there is nothing she can't do! Those legs, that voice! It will be fun to write a longer article about her, especially after a trip to Southend.
Pete Townshend looks like he could play major league baseball or water polo if he ever gets tired of saving rock n roll. In fact Pete and Rachel remind me that one couple in your high school that everyone liked and wanted to be together forever. Pete is a very nice man who happens to be a superstar.
Tracie is the sweetest PA and has that inimitable British spirit that makes the people in this country so much fun, she and Justin Kreutzmann will be unbeatable as a team on the road.
Mikey is totally cool and gracious and he's a great fine artist-everyone in The Attic is so wonderfully multi talented! Would have liked to have met the tech crew but they were busy working.
Spenny from Back Bone Shiver was quiet but once I broke the ice was very sweet, talking about his guitar lessons that he gives to kids in Manchester and how tough it is to get a band together (don't I know).
The attic itself is in such a lovely part of England/South London. It was like being in a Dickens sketch with a bit of Beatrix Potter and more than a large dose of Wind in The Willows thrown in.
And who is "Molly of Richmond?" well at my BnB here near Kew Gardens the ownner has a lovely cocker spaniel with a recently shorne rone coat(spotted gret blaqck and off white) and a very amazing ability to slip in through my door and eat my McVites biscuits. Truly amazing because she can close the door behind her!!! She is just wonderful and she looks very much like the late Towser. (The BnB owner also mentioned that her husband has run into Pete at the local dog park. He is so deservedly loved in his hood.) Now that my tech friends are either in Poland or France i have no way to post photos of Molly but i promise a few good ones of Kew and Molly. In the meantime i slowly recover from my bizzare sleep schedule and wish everyone well. When I return to the states I promise to write all of you who have kindly posted during this magical trip.
