Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MILES WATSON

It sure wasn't no pickpocket...

The word on Facebook is that John Pope had his double bass stolen but that the instrument and its owner have been re-united. What's the lowdown on this dastardly deed John?
Lance.

Whilst rehearsing with one of my (electric) bands at our room in the ouseburn on sunday night a very 'confused' (tired and emotional, I'll bet) gentleman used a lump of breeze-block to smash the rear windshield of my car. He then made off with the doghouse herself. Fortunately a young woman who was passing saw the break-in occur and phoned the police, whilst rushing into our room to alert us (mid rock-tastic riff). The culprit was caught, but not before 'stashing' my bass. 'Stashed' it right over some bushes, into a deep ditch. It was recovered by the police on monday morning and returned to me, post-forensic, on tuesday. The prognosis is not good...

Cheers,
JP
