The south of France is living up to what we expect at the moment, with beautiful sunrises, glorious morning skies and long stretches of blue cloudless expanse for the majority of the daylight hours.
The band will not see too much of that blue sky over the next couple of days as they are busy pulling the last part of the album together. Lead guitars and lead vocals are the main order of the last few days, and both Doug and Glenn are extremely busy working with Ben to pull all their respective parts together so Ben can take it all away and create a finished masterpiece.
Ben was not only the centre of attention holding court in the control room as he gathered all the recorded parts, but also at the dinner table in the evening as he was celebrating his birthday. Chefs Doug and Glen had pulled out all the stops and prepared a huge cake full of strawberries, chocolate and cream which everyone had seconds and by tomorrow probably thirds as well.
