Rocking all over the world

It was very hot and rather muggy yesterday, so I had all the windows open to try to catch a breeze through the house. All through the evening I kept hearing snatches of loud rock music, drowning out the commentary on the Olympics on the TV. I thought that maybe one of my neighbours was having a loud party, but it’s very unlike them not to have mentioned it, as they are a very considerate bunch.

I wanted to have an early night, partly because I’m very tired from not sleeping well at the moment, but mostly because I’d stayed up far too late on Friday night to watch the Olympics Opening Ceremony. But the music seemed louder than ever, and it was clear that the only way I’d get an early night was if I closed all the windows and stifled in the heat. I went out into the garden to see if I could tell which house it was coming from, and was hit by a huge blast of Rocking all over the World, seemingly coming from the entire hill to the west of me. Then I realised what was going on. Status Quo were playing live at the Eastnor Castle Deerpark, and clearly had their amp turned up to at least 11, if not higher!

Clearly, sleep was going to be impossible until they had finished their set, so I stayed out in the garden and listened to the rest of the concert. There was certainly no need to spend £35 on a ticket when the wind was coming from the west!
