‘LIFE HAS TAKEN A WEIRD TWIST FOR THE RAB’…….WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LAST 30 GLORIOUS YEARS OF MY LIFE’

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

I TRULY APOLOGISE TO THE BOSS,
I OWE A LOT FOR THE LESSONS
I’VE LEARNED OVER
THE PAST 30 YEARS….

I AM BITTER,BUT IT’S ALL DOWN
TO MY OWN FAILURE TO SUCCEED AT
THE HIGHEST LEVEL I HAD SET FOR MYSELF
AT THE BEGINNING OF MY CAREER.

THANKS FOR THE RIDE

FOR ALL YOU TEXANS – The City of Houston has passed new laws that allow Police to write tickets to Sound Men, Bands, Bartenders, Club managers, who ever they feel like a ticket for $1000 USD for generating a noise complaint by residents who live near clubs where Bands perform and DJ’s provide entertainment.

IF ANYONE CAN HELP STEVE BUNDRICK ON THIS, PLEASE READ HIS THOUGHTS BELOW, AND CONTACT HIM AT stevebundrick@mac.com

Thank you all, John Rabbit Bundrick

I have been on a little different path the past couple of months. The City of Houston has passed new laws that allow Police to write tickets to Sound Men, Bands, Bartenders, Club managers, who ever they feel like a ticket for $1000 USD for generating a noise complaint by residents who live near clubs where Bands perform and DJ’s provide entertainment.

I am hiring sound consultant professionals to help provide a scientific measure by which clubs can “see” what sound emissions they are emitting during a concert. And with this we can push for laws that are for our industry, not against.

I have formed a HUGE following to fight the city in this and am now getting the attention of the Mayor. She has sent a request to meet with me and my team to discuss revising the law. This is a big success, however, we need some real attention here. Can you get me in touch with ANYBODY you know who can publicize my situation? Perhaps some of the touring musicians you know can help us to raise awareness and attend some of our upcoming benefit concerts we are scheduling? Any thing you can do will be greatly appreciated.

I know you have never been a very politically active musician, I also know you left USA to pursue your career. This is greatly damaging the Houston Local Live Music scene, and driving away potential money from me, and everyone in my community. If you can get my story to anyone you know, please let me know.

I hope this finds you well man!

Love to you and Jody!

SNOWY WHITE DVD CONCERT-with guest John Rabbit Bundrick on Keyboards in Holland & Germany Sept 16th & 17th 2011- www.s-e-9.nl / info@s-e-p.nl

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

I found, at the age of 63, that travelling in a Van is too much for this ‘ole’ boy’, but the people of Holland and Germany were so friendly and welcoming, and the Snowy gigs were so much fun and in your face, it was well worth the effort, and I’m ready to do it all again, apart from the Van, (ha..ha…ha).
My back is really sore from that Van. I am so used to the luxury of the Who, that I forgot what real travel is like for the musicians who don’t travel like I do with the Who.

Thanks to the Who too for giving me such great travel treatment.

I’d like to thank all the crew, the band of many musicians, the audiences, Lucas and his family in Germany, and Maurice in Holland for making me laugh so much. Thank you all for the fine reception I got and thanks to my Main Man, Snowy White for bringing me along.

Thanks to Juan, Walter, Jeff, Kuma, Ruud, Richard Bailey, and the loveable rogue, Max Middleton on other Keys. Our 2 different distince styles of playing work extremely well together.

THANK YOU ALL………John Rabbit Bundrick
