It's been 10 years since I toured with The Hedrons and I've just come across my old tour diaries! I'll be posting them here for you all to laugh and cringe with me. 

I hope you enjoy reading them....

Day 16 North America Tour- Thursday 26th July 2007


After last night’s ordeal in the hotel, we woke up at 11am feeling reasonably refreshed. We decided that since we were in the home of Motown, we’d go and visit the place where it all began - Hitsville USA, 2648 Wes...

Day 15 North America Tour- Wednesday 25th July 2007


Well, this morning was little hazy to say the least. We left Kentucky at 11am and are currently on the road to Detroit; home to many a successful musician. The White Stripes, Raconteurs, Detroit Cobras, The Stooge...

Day 14 North America Tour - 24th July 2007


We’re currently an hour and a half from Kentucky. The weather isn’t so good today. It’s quite overcast but it’s still really warm. We’re hoping we get wi-fi at the hotel so we can post some pictures up on the website for y...

Day 13 North America Tour - 23rd July 2007


Today we had the first long lie of the tour. An 11am rise. Sheer bliss. This is the first morning I’ve woken up and not felt like I could sleep for another 12 hours. We went to a K Mart after we left the hotel which is re...

Day 12 North America Tour - 22nd July 2007

We woke up at about 10am to try and tackle the huge bags of washing we all had before we set off for Philadelphia. It has to be said that washing day on tour is the most depressing day ever. The ideal situation is to find a lau...

Day 11 - North America Tour. 21st July 2007 


Been driving for about 2 hours now and I’m BORED. 

The best remedy for that is to start the blog. I hope you don’t get bored reading it! There’s still 5 hours of this journey to go so I’ll probably try and get some slee...

Well I predicted that today would be really horrid given the excesses of last night but in actual fact it’s been OK so far!

When I got into the bus this morning I was decidedly chirpy (translates as still merry!) I’ve felt brilliant all day until right now, 30 minu...

Day 9 North America Tour - 19th July 2007 


We have just driven over the George Washington Bridge into New York City. It really was like the wacky races getting through it. It’s my turn for the front seat today but I had to shield my eyes on many occasions thinking...

Day 8 North America - 18th July 2007 11:05am

We’ve all just got up and are getting ready to hit the road to New Jersey. I’m glad we’re not staying in this Days Inn for another night. It’s mingin’. The numbers on the room doors are scraped off and the paint is peeling of...

August 2, 2017


It’s another glorious day in Toronto. We’re just about to be booted out the hotel so I thought I’d make an early start on the blog. I’m not sure what we’re going to get up to yet since we have all afternoon to hang around before a radio interview at 5pm. The area...
