We said goodbye to Greece about a week ago. I always get the Ios blues when I leave that beautiful place.

Before I left, I played a concert with my mate the Minister for a friend that departed this world too soon. The concert was held in the amphitheatre on Ios. Amazing views and acoustics.

We also played 'wish cialis you were here' at Homer's tomb one windy morning. Had a bit of a Pink Floyd Pompeii like moment.

I also did some recording with Thomas at Mirabello Art – check out my Facebook page for some video. Can't wait to hear what he does with it.

Now in Paris and about to head to Boissy sans Avoir for the Frenc

h cigar box guitar festival.

Two doors down from where we are staying is a cigar shop.

I did some busking around the corner from where we are staying at the George Pompidou centre and popped down to Jim Morrison's final digs and the bar he frequented across the street.

Cheers to Jim in the bar across the street from his Paris house
