Eugene show - Damp home run. Willie earns a break in his home town but the screen gets rain-soaked and falls apart. Help!

Eugene. Show day, after flying in from S.F. this morning. Great to have a couple of days in San Francisco and the weather was spectacular too. Spent the first night in the hotel, the second at home, the third back in the hotel. Gentle in, gentle out. I really enjoyed the time - severing the umbilical cord. I'm on tour for sure now.

The gig in Eugene was something of a technical disaster. The screen got its first good soaking in the early hours of the morning and quite simply fell apart. It was embarrassing. The crew did all they could and worked their asses off, but it looked awful. Thank God it was Eugene and not New York. Much pressure placed on Belgian screen crew who promise to make amends. Lets hope the promise holds true, or this is going to be a long year. Runner to Phoenix after the show. Get me out of here...
