It's August, but nobody seems to have told the weather that.
So, in the name of all things Eternally Optimistic, here's a little bit of silliness (with a classical theme) to brighten your day. Enjoy!

Having been in various bands for years, I've occasionally found myself playing gigs with people I don't quite feel as connected to as I should...
...such as the gig I did with a frustrated 80s-style lead guitarist, for example, where he turned every song into an eight-minute, plank-spanking epic. Or the gig where the drummer ran the band and didn't stick to the setlist (so the start of every song was like a live version of 'Name That Tune'...). Or the time I did backing vocals for a Nigerian gospel singer and had to do them all in a faux Nigerian accent so they didn't sound out of place...
So when my drummer mate, Nic, told me about this video and I just had to share it with you. Enjoy!
