'The cleaning lady slid back the shower curtain and joined me'
(with apologies to Raymond Chandler)
In early 2015 we travelled over to the Sunshine Coast to hear some blues music. Topping the bill was our old friend Phil Manning, followed by the Kevin Borich Express, and The Backsliders.
Phil, who has been described as an Australian National Treasure, and a founder of the iconic blues band Chain, was first up and we were able to fully appreciate his artistry before the audience got too well lubricated.
By the time Kevin was well into his set, the dance floor was crowded and the music, feeding off the energy of the dancers, grew steadily louder and more visceral.
Most of the audience of 60-somethings were up there on the dance floor floating moves they learned at high school when they were young and beautiful, and the girls danced bra-less in tight T-shirts.
They were no longer young and all the perky little breasts were on the men.
