Re The Convention

I've just been having a lovely chat with the big one, & I'll be joining him on stage at the convention. (It seems an age away, though)
We're going to work something into the set, maybe Gentleman's or something, if anyone still remembers the "old stuff"!
It's time I dug out the whites again.
& NO! I won't be downing a whole bottle of red wine while playing. Too old for that sh*t. Probably.

While I'm on the forum, yes, my site's up & running at long last;
http://www.mickeysimmonds.com/
The new album is a good old fashioned concept album, continuous from start to finish, tells the tale of "Mr & Mrs" & ends with a big question mark. You decide.

There's a few extras up there as well;
"Prog Piano" which is kind of self explanatory, lots of prog themes interwoven to create a kind of Prog Piano Concerto, but without the concerto, just the piano!
(BTW Michel Simone is one of my alter egos.)
"Variations on Melodies of Mike Oldfield" which was a one-off improvisation, originally recorded for the Oldfield fan club, but has become quite sought after, as it never had a general release.

Both available as download & well worth a listen (he said shamelessly).

Anyway, enough sales pitch,
Thank you all of you who left me birthday wishes last week,
Hello to anyone who remembers me,

Mickey

Good to see you again. It's been too long!
