An embarrassing moment with Gary Lightbody
February 8, 2012. No comments.
When I was on tour with Snow Patrol my travel bag fell apart from all the new clothes I kept trying to cram in, so I spent the afternoon in Dublin looking for a new case.
I arrived at the stage door for the 4.30 soundcheck, just as Gary Lightbody rocked up. Perhaps he felt a bit guilty about the time I got hit by a flying lime walking past the boys dressing room, who knows…anyway, he stopped and asked “Would you like me to carry that for you?”
And still being a bit starstruck I said “Oh, that’s very kind, thank you.”
And so he proceeded to carry my brand new little case up 4 flights of stairs, and, for the whole time as we walked – in silence – I was squirming inside because there was nothing in it, so it would have been as light as a feather!
He must’ve thought I was nuts.
