Cyril and Chris (Jordan/Wilson songwriting team of the Shake Some Action – Now! era Flamin’ Groovies) took the first literal steps towards their tour in bright windy San Francisco daylight this afternoon!
“Once more into the breach, with gusto!” I said as they began walking toward Barry’s van.
That got a laugh from Chris!
A little sad to see them go, though I know they will do alright, and a bit more than that!!
Cyril’s peace-out words were, “Keep your fingers crossed!”
That we will CJ.
And we hope they had a pleasant flight into Japan.
