Got up @ 7am + checked in2 C.Serve. Couldn’t send or receive mail, but was able 2 check out AP news. Paul Winter Consort won the Grammy in New Age. The Grammys R like a wave. The wave originated a while ago somewhere in the ocean, + we notice it much later arriving @ the beach. Eric Clapton received his Grammys many years after he did his most outstanding work. Sting received 3 Grammys last night + his best work is also a few years back. His 1st 2 solo albums R still his best. I am sorry, that Dom might B bummed. I don’t have his phone number + can’t call him. Lunch @ 1pm, in2 the studio @2:30pm.
our show last night was good. Wonderful audience. I read in a review that the journo couldn’t tell what the bucket was used 4. Once again proof how stupid music critics R! Maybe I should tell people next time. Met Jaz Coleman from Killing Joke after the concert. Told him I loved the record “Cairo” he did w Anne Dudley. He loved our concert. He is working on a requiem 4 Bosnia w a Classical guitarist, several Arabic instrumentalists + the London Philharmonic. Jaz said that our concert inspired him 2 use 2 guitars instead of 1, because it sounded so much more powerful. After the meet + greet Jon + I went w Phil + another record company guy 2 a restaurant called SPQR which I thought was a Roman Government inscription, but according 2 Phil meant: Some Pretensious Queen’s Restaurant. The kitchen had closed, but they managed 2 put a delicious plate of grilled vegetables 2gether. All around nice people in Nu Z.land. 2day I fly 2 Singapore. Lobbycall is @ 10:30am. Dom is positive we will win the New Age Grammy. I don’t share that feeling.
