Say it fast: Eyjafjallajökull! - April 14, 2015
Happy Volcano Day! Five years ago today (April 14th, 2010), Nelson Bragg and I were stranded at Heathrow Airport on the first day of our European tour, thanks to the geothermal hijinks of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull Volcano.
Hard to describe the madness that followed - the five days of trying to find a way out of Heathrow Airport and across the sea to The Netherlands - the canceled shows, the crowded train stations, the reigning confusion over when and where and whether anyone would ever be able to fly again. Good times! I'm happy to say that we got through it with the help of many, many friends, old and new. And, I got a song out of the deal.
In commemoration of the 5th anniversary of Eyjafjallajökull, I've just posted a new video of the song "Travelogue," from my 2013 album January, on Youtube. Enjoy, and feel free to share!
And of course, if you want to relive the catastrophe along with us, enjoy the "Tangle-Free World" tour video, which features a whole lot more confusion and shenanigans and the appearance of German guitarist, Roland Wolff!
