I am really looking forward to seeing my wife this week. The tour has been so grueling. I am not as young as I used to be. Also we have been exposed to many really trying situations. For the most part everyone has been great, being cooped up in a bus. All the members of the English Beat have been nice as well; I look forward to one day hanging out with them in KC.

You do a lot of soul searching sitting on a bus, with time to think about all your friends and family, and all the people you come in to your life. I have led a charmed life, and I really can honestly say I won't do this again. I have loved every minute of the tour, lived it to the fullest, but realise I love something so much more. Grace, David and Poppy I really miss you guys.

I am sitting in a hotel. I have a room all to myself in Alexandria, Virginia. I have a sore throat, I ache all over, splits on my hands, and am worn out. I have a show tonight.

Unless you have done it, touring is one of the most un-glamorous things. I know there is a part to the day where you get to have people cheer you, but they all go home, and you find yourself on a bus. I am 43 now, I hung out with Justin and Ryan last night, the band went to a Motel 6. I paid for two rooms at the Hyatt, they share a room and I got some space to myself. They are both really young, mid twenties. We sat in the bar and drank and just talked openly all night.

Justin needs a job! He does not have one when he gets back to Kansas City. He is such a nice kid. He, like me, took this opportunity to live and learn something about himself. He is a bar tender and needs a job asap when he gets home next week. If anyone out there needs help, please get in touch with him. I can't stand the thought of him coming home to nothing.

It's so quiet in here.
