2014 HELIX “DREAM ON” IN NORWAY
In 2014 we toured Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, and Norway with the Norwegian band HUMBUCKER. The first three dates of the tour I sang like a bird; the fourth day I woke up with crap running out of every orifice of my body. We had to cancel our last date in Hamburg, Germany and head for Sweden. I never did get better that tour-in fact it wasn’t until a couple of months after I returned home that I felt normal again. Every night it was like I was just “hanging on”. If it weren’t for my vocal technique I never would have made it. I was so sick by the last date I was going to sleep and waking up bathed in sweat with the chills. Money is a great motivator as they say, or “the show must go on” with the unsaid follow-up: “Cos the bills have to be paid!!!” This is our last date, which was just outside of Oslo, Norway. Ironically, the song we’re playing in this clip is “Even Jesus (Wasn’t Loved In His Home Town)”
You can purchase the studio version of Even Jesus (Wasn’t Loved In His Hometown) on The Bastard of the Blues CD, available on www.planethelix.com in the merchandise section. It is also available for digital download at CD Baby.
