he's also the reason i feel terrible today. rum chasers for a civilised afternoon drink didn't seem like that much of a good idea at the time and definitely didn't this morning.

Hey man I've been meaning to ask you this for some time - while at a friend's funeral in Leicester a couple of months ago I bumped into an old acquaintance at the wake - upright bass playing dude called nick (never did know his surname) and he mentioned that as well as his rockabilly band Drugstore Cowboys, he was doing some session work with a band called Daddy Long Legs - is/was that you guys?

hey there parabolichobo (please tell me where your name comes from)... umm. i think it's unlikely that i know your friend. one of my very bestest buddies in the world is indeed an upright bass player of some repute, but he lives and works in brighton, so i'm pretty sure it wasn't him. nick mcguigan is his name just in case of unlikely coincidence. green-eyed, curly haired, cheerful and dapper. sort of like a youthful and more handsome michael palin... but with painfully perfect jazz skills. sorry to hear you had to attend a funeral. they're never nice are they?

also, daddy's pretty much run it's course and unlike the tacticians (horns etc) we never employed session guys. there's also an abundance of bands (mostly at the rootsy jazz/blues end of things) called daddy long legs. five that i knew of at last count.well.. four now i guess...

no, that's not my nickthebass, he's based firmly in the midlands - funny that there's a plethora of daddy long legs bands, as there's also a large number of drugstore cowboys. There's a post on Nige's blog entitled WHAT'S IN A NAME where many of us explain our online nicknames (I would link to it but it's after midninght and I'm comfortably numb).
