Milton Keynes, U.K.

Thursday, 6 November 2008

It is morning, and I’m having some Earl Grey tea. We are still at Don McLean’s house in Milton Keynes. Don’s band, Action Beat, is doing quite well, with fairly frequent tours of Europe and a record forthcoming on the Southern record label. He says that even though he and his mates in the band have loads of debt from going to uni, they have all just decided to get shit jobs to be able to go on tour. Three of the guys in the band are all pizza delivery men, and Don works picking up bottles in some bar after hours. One occasional member of the band got a serious job after college, so he still plays with Action Beat when he can, but they’ve told him he’s not an official member until he has the flexibility to tour. Don says this guy has been promising to quit his job soon.
