I love maps so at least I kind of know exactly where I am in the country. It's my biggest strength as tour manager and that's sort of a basic thing for a tour manager to know. Yeah I can judge the times for where we're going to be and all that but my biggest weakness is remembering the exact times where we have to be! I know exactly where we should be on the map but not remembering the times exactly for where I should be is definitely my biggest weakness.
For Kathy, I can at least brighten the mood because on the road, sometimes with Kathy, it gets intense. It's one city after the other, after the other and, ya know, a hectic schedule... Everyday it's airports and planes and this and that but, because I was in a band before, I know that you must have a good sense of humor; and since Kathy already has that too, I think she needs somebody to, ya know, bounce things back and forth instead of being a taskmaster -- something I am probably not! So basically I kind of lighten the mood and make it enjoyable for her.
