I'm in Munich tonight, playing at the Bavarian Open Festival, and in the words of Charlie Watts on twenty-five years with The Rolling Stones, it feels like "five years playing, twenty years hanging about"!

Just for the record, the kit I'm using on this tour is a Gretsch Catalina Club kit in silver sparkle with an 18" x 22" Bass Drum, 14" x 14" Floor Tom, 12" x 8" Rack Tom and a 14" x 5.5" Snare Drum. The cymbals are a Paiste Traditional 20" Ride Cymbal, 18" Zildjian K Crash Cymbal and a pair of 14" Zildjian Quick Beat Hi-Hats.
