Is anyone hearing Waterloo Sunset get played a lot over the PA just as gigs finish these days?

Wait. What? "Mrs. Andy"?

When did that happen?

I'm pretty sure it happened when I was posting and couldn't remember her name :D

Skipping ahead to the 'Mr. Yamaha' improv, he really doesn't like Yamahas. He was careful to thank the people who provided, moved and tuned it, but the heavy keys were somewhat hard on his fingers ('Ahhhhh', as the crowd sympathetically sighed). A fun improv, but I'm not sure he never meant to sing the words "I'm going to beat you, you six foot black motherf*cker". Now I know he didn't mean it like... oh just move on.
It was the start of the show
Sheffield
and the people were shouting my name
as the house lights came down
and the spotlight followed me out
I started playing the piano
as I busted fingers on the front of the stage

I wish I'd never thought that up now...
