12th of March 2020, we just finished the gig with the Steve Hackett Band in the wonderful Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown PA. We had heard rumors that the rest of the US leg was in the danger of being cancelled due to a mysterious virus, we were worried. But to be perfectly honest, we'd been worried ever since January when in the news they talked about a new virus surfacing from this Chinese town called Wuhan.
2 days later scrolling through e-mails, boom, A whole year of work wiped out in one e-mail.
On the way back we discussed what to do with the rest of this year and we recalled that we'd been jamming on things in dressing rooms and soundchecks to the 'delight' of our fine soundman Ben Fenner. Hey, why don't we record some of that and make a CD, invite people that we like and call the project The Backstage. The Backstage was born.
Here we are, 5 months later with this very CD in our hands. Yes, we all hate Covid-19 and feel sorry for all that have been sick, for all those who lost friends and family members in this tragedy, businesses that have gone bust, families that have been shattered. But this recording proves that you can turn things around in the darkest of times.
