Monday June 29th - A long, arduous drive to Salt Lake City was relieved by coming up with our 'Vegas" names. At a New Jersey hotel in 2001 the receptionist misread Lumpy's details on his passport and called him 'Rodney London', which the rest of us found highly amusing. This tour we decided that everyone has to have a Vegas name so Nick now goes under the moniker of Lionel Smooth, Wayne is Ronnie Leather, Big Mike is Larry 'El Grande' Dwight, Beki is Tina Maccaroni and German is Engelbert 'The Ram' Ramirez. We are collectively known as 'The Twat Pack'. We've also given LCB Vegas names: Deke Saturn, Long John 'The Blond' Jeblonski, Dean Marty and Dicky De Vere. Brats merch man is not dubbed Dwaine 'the dollar' L'amour... Ah well, little things please little minds!!!
We had a great show at Salt Lake City, the Monday night crowd were brilliant, and made it worth the long hors stuck in the van.
After the show we drove till 5am then checked in to a hotel and tried to get some much needed kip.
