There certainly are restaurants that we don't stop at! Over the years I've got to discover many great restaurants and I make a point of noting them and visiting when I am in town - if there is time. But I normally try to get a good breakfast, and I make sure there are healthy foods and snacks on the bus. I never get hungry before a gig, and so, after the gig, when I'm ravenous. I find it important to try and avoid those wonderful junk foods that the USA is so good at! And, you can always get great good food in the USA if you take the time to look. I like to have a refrigerator in my Hotel room so that I always have something I like with me. I have no food prejudices, or 'no no' rules - I'm easy to please.
Now I tour with my Cherry Red Gibson 335, a Sunburst ’59 re-issue Gibson 335, my original 1965 Telecaster, and a white Squire Stratocaster. I have a few acoustic guitars on the road at any one time. With the Moodies I carry my original Collings, a beautiful James Olsen, a black Guild from the 90’s and my Guild 12 string (which, when I took it out of it’s case one day, had mysteriously developed hundreds of hairline cracks all over the front of the guitar – probably from severe temperature changes in a truck). I also carry a PRS acoustic, but I haven’t found a song for it to play yet. On my solo tour I brought out my ‘home’ Collings, my Taylor 12 string and my Tom Anderson electric as well as all the above. My 1955 Martin D28 almost made it (it did do the Blue Jays tour in 1975) but at the last minute I decided it would be happiest at home or in the studio with Alberto. If I could choose only one guitar to be with me it would be my cherry red Gibson 335. It’s been with me so long, it always delivers and I love it so much.
