We’re all back from a wild week in London.
The first gig we did was for Prince Charles’ "Prince of Wales Foundation" at Windsor Castle. As I was waiting to go on stage, the music had begun and Garry ran over to me holding up a piece of paper (he knew I couldn’t hear anything due to the monitors in my ears). It said “The album enters in the Top Ten!”. And then I went onstage! How about that for an entrance?
The week kept getting more and more exciting.
Windsor Castle is magnificent. The closest I ever came to Windsor Castle was White Castle! (greasy hamburger joint).
We did a very prestigious TV show called "An Audience With..." The show has been on for 25 years. Celebrities in the audience ask the guest star questions and then he or she sings.
Great music, great TV staff, and really great audience. Reflux attacked me the night before and it appeared during "Mandy." We re-did that song, and the audience was very understanding. Don’t know when the show airs, but I bet it’s going to be good.
Radio Manilow seems to be doing real well. I’m going to add a hundred more songs. I listen to it when I can. I love hearing Gerry Mulligan next to Lady Gaga. I miss stations that used to have playlists like that.
Thanks for all the support and excitement about the new CD. You’re all just fantastic.
