I’m writing you from somewhere between Fresno and San Jose, California. Cool show tonight and last night, but then I would say that about the whole tour! That’s nice that I can say that and believe it. It’s been a good run on this “Crazy Love” tour… it’s a little sad that it has to end in about 4 shows! I don’t think any of us have really given it much thought. It will just be the last day a week from now and that will be that and we are only left with “Memory Lane”.
It has always been fun and pretty care free on these tours. Most of you know that one of my favorite past times is playing Ping Pong. MB and I go rounds and rounds of trash talk. It’s so entertaining to me and I guess to everyone around us. The idea is to say or do something that goes beyond what anyone expects… like today :-). MB was looking really down and I said “What wrong?” He stalled for a moment giving me an opportunity to think “wow, something really bad has happened”. He then said “Roger, I’m just too good at this game… I’ve beaten everyone on the table today and I know you’ll want to play me, but you’re really no challenge for me and makes me sad to have to tell you that.” Wow, that was GREAT! Even when I begged him to come to play me… he just walked away and said “there’s no point Roger”. Funny, funny, funny… he did this all with a straight face. It is true that I have had a hard time beating him recently, but today I felt that feeling… you know the feeling that you’re unstoppable. He finally came out to play and I took him down!
I’m going to miss that Ping Pong table and all this competition with MB, the band, N7 and the crew. It’s really been a family like one I don’t expect to be part of again in as a “support band” roll. I’ll probably write more about it when it ends in a week.
We estimate we’ve sung for about 3 to 4 million people on both tours since 2007. We are still very appreciative for the opportunity. It’s kept us super busy because we’ve done our solo shows in between all this heavy touring. It’s been a blessing.
Tomorrow’s a day off and we are probably going to do a little bowling (another favorite past time of N7). We don’t fly to El Paso until 5pm tomorrow. So you know where to find us in the afternoon :-)
Right after this tour we take 2 days off and head to Washington DC for the Martin Luther King Jr National Memorial. We are absolutely honored to be part of it. Sharing the weekend with so many great artists. I’ll be sure to write and give you all the details after that weekend.
Just want to take this time to thank all of you reading this and supporting us always. I really appreciate it.
If there is anything particular about N7 that you’d like for me to write about… just let me know and we’ll see what I can do…
God Bless you all,
Roger, over and out
More Ping Pong? You should check some older posts… definitely ;)
