Hop on THE BUS, Gus!

Beijing rock god Mr Jaime Welton has finally put together his long-planned (long-threatened!) project of a Metal Micro-Tour - putting his own Bad Mamasan and fellow headbangers Chunqiu and SAW (and as many of their fans as will fit in the spare seats) on a bus and taking them over to Tianjin for the evening to play a gig... and, of course, to indulge in much rock'n'roll partying on the journey there and back....

I gather they should be leaving round about now (hoping to avoid getting caught in Beijing's Friday rush-hour traffic for four hours - good luck, boys!!).

I had dearly wanted to join them - but, alas, I am in the grip of a deadly cashflow crisis at the moment. We shall have to rely on Beijing Daze's Badr to bring us reports of the debauchery (and the music - if they actually arrive in time, and in a fit condition to play; I'm not sure I'd bet on either of those).

It should be an interesting experience.  After all, in the words of the great Ozzy Osbourne (one of his more coherent utterances, this): "Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different to being drunk on a bus."

Party on, fellas! Have a wild time!!
