Pat's Weekly Diary 6/1
Monday morning and as of right now we got nothing. Who knows… perhaps things will change as we move into Phase 2. We’ll have to wait to see in the coming days / weeks. But as of now for the Topcats… nothing. We got nothing. On a personal note though … this past Saturday night May 30, 2020 for the first time in what has to be at least 50 years, I went to bed at 11 o’clock on a Saturday night. That’s right… 11 o’clock on a Saturday night. I joined TQ & the Topcats in 1976. I was 22 years old making a living playing music We played somewhere every weekend. Late nights. Certainly a few years prior to that as a teenager and into my early 20’s I was out somewhere either playing music or just hanging with my friends. Out… just out… somewhere… certainly past 11 o’clock. This past Saturday night I was in bed at 11 o’clock. Back in the 90’s we used to play at Amberjacks on the lakefront pretty regularly. We didn’t start playing ‘til 11 o’clock. And then played ‘til 3 in the morning. This past Saturday night I was in bed at 11 o’clock. Such are the times in which we live. And here again we’re hoping to see you guys real soon and ‘til then stay safe.
