So. What is RocknRollPharmacy?
It's what we do.
It stuck in my head after a conversation at Glastonbury.
Someone was talking.......
"I've toured with Rock Bands. This is just like it."
We spend months and months preparing and developing ideas.
We discuss it but each have our own area to work at.
There is never enough time, and as the gig gets closer life gets frantic as we try to get everything and everybody ready.
When the time comes, we're not ready,
but have to go, so hope to organise the last few things on the move.
We arrive at the venue before the crowd.
Even although we didn't get everything done we wanted, we put all our pieces together because the audience is arriving.
Suddenly, the show has begun, and for three days and nights we give everything we've got.
We do what we love doing with people who are like us.
Then, it's over.
As the crowds leave, we dismantle the pretend world we created.
We pack everything up.
We hug, kiss, cry, say our farewells and leave again.
Until the next gig.
This is Rock'n'Roll!
