Running Down A Dream

Saturday, July 24, 2010

You can only imagine how epic it felt to play a show on the ship - especially after we had JUST (not even 30 minutes prior) been given the most excellent VIP tour of the ship. So yeah - we were all pretty stoked.

Problem.

Half of both bands were sooooo sick.

The best was the "puke bags" that were provided for us. We had 2 giant bags strategically placed for both James and Gordon in case the need to spew hit during the show. (I apologize for how much I have talked about puking the last few days... but there was just a LOT of it happening... we all got really close REALLY quick on this trip)

Thankfully neither James nor Gordon ended up getting sick during the show - although they both looked white as ghosts. As soon as the show was over... James was pretty rough. He sat down close by and then pretty much passed out immediately after. He woke up to someone he didn't know grabbing the skin on his hand to check to see how dehydrated he was. He heard them say "take this guy down to medical and give him an IV" but that was about the last thing he remembered because he was in such a fog.

I had NO IDEA any of this was going on... I was talking to everyone after the show and didn't have a CLUE how sick James was until about 4 hours later when I heard someone mention it while I was signing autographs...

It's a really good thing the puke bags were around the stage, though. Dave puked TWICE during SafetySuit's set. Poor guy. I sure hope he's well now. He had it the longest of anyone on the trip.

Our incredible view/ audience/ backdrop!!! (We're the tiny ones down at the bottom of the pic)














The XO... just chillin...


The LINE DANCERS!!!!



I got to spend SOOO much time with the guys on the ship. It was AWESOME.

My Navy Cowboy... it's like a rhinestone cowboy but at sea




My hat rocks.




Playing aboard the USS Nassau was kinda the best thing ever.

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

Ditto. Awesome Blog! Thanks again for doing that tour. And please pass along thanks to the band as well. There's a special place in Heaven reserved for people who think and act as you do.

Peace, from Africa.
