Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam Yesterday in Las Vegas I got the most beautiful surprise. 

A couple of Manx postcards were left on my guitar stand, including one of my hometown harbour, with my dads boat in it. On the reverse it said: 

"Hi Davy, only 4955 miles from the Albert, and it's definitely warmer!" 

I turned around and saw some beautiful familiar faces from home. This is Jeff and Tina who run the post office in the village I grew up in, Port St. Mary. Totally bowled over that they came and surprised me in Vegas!

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam So sad to hear we lost one of the true greats yesterday, Mr. Chuck Berry. 

It's impossible to over-exaggerate his influence, his reach, his impact on music. He'll go down in history with Mozart, Beethoven and the like. Hell. He already earned his spot with them even before my generation were born. 

My first ever public performance of any music was a Chuck Berry tune. I was maybe 6 years old, and obsessed with his music. It was my sister's birthday party, and I begged the DJ to play Johnny B. Goode so I could sing along. All I remember is Holly's friends covering their ears at my screeching. 

Last night we opened the show in Denver with that song in tribute to the great man. 

The biggest of thanks for being the pioneer and genius you were Mr. Berry. The world would have been very different without you, and is just a little sadder now you've left us.
