JUST FOR FUN

— by Pete York

August 13 sees a happy re-union for a few tunes at least with Helge Schneider playing organ and Pete on drums at the Dresden Ufer Pete called in to see Helge at the Lustspielhaus in Munich and they even had a small session together in the afternoon. Just for fun.
Since the sad loss of Jimmy Woode, Helge has been playing his solo shows to great effect, but being the dedicated musician that he is, the idea of playing with old pals is always appealing.
The Dresden gig is enormous and Pete will make a hectic flight from Switzerland to be there.
