Midge's 50th Birthday

To celebrate Midge's 60th birthday he arranged for Good Question Derek to reunite to play a special one off gig at his rugby club's end of season party on Saturday 29th April 2006. For those of you that were there you will know that it was a great opportunity to catch up with some old faces (and to avoid some others), for those of you that couldn't make it, tough luck!

As the band hadn't played together for 9 years (and in fact Jules and I hadn't really had any contact since Marty P's wedding in 1999) we needed a bit of practice. I couldn't even remember which end of a Bass Guitar to blow! We had 2 practices in a studio in Oxford and one practice, on the day of the gig, at Rich Bitch studios in Birmingham (where we used to practice in the olden days). It's good to see that some things never change - Jules was late, I forgot every song (despite having it all written down) and Midge's amp quickly turned up to 11!

The gig itself went really well and everyone seemed to have a good time (well, at least we did).

If you have any photos of the event please email them to and I will post them here.
