Orange Goblin’s Ben Ward is currently hanging with the amazing trio of bands on this year’s Lords Of The Riff tour! Here’s how it’s going so far…

Day 4 – Wednesday March 19th – Another Day Off!

Woke up to the smell of bacon cooking as our good host served us up a full English breakfast and a pint of tea! Before we left Colchester we stopped off to pick up some sleeping bags (essential touring kit) and debated going to visit a zoo or a castle but everyone decided to get to the hotel in London and get some much needed rest. In no time we were back in the smoke and the band got some sleep whilst I managed to go home and do some laundry. Later that evening we all met up for some food at possibly the worst Chinese restaurant in the world before heading to The Red Lion in Leytonstone for beers.

We were joined by a few friends including Joe, the guitar player from Orange Goblin, and the night soon started to get messy as everyone started sampling the wide range of guest ales. We ended up back at a friends house drinking whiskey, wine, cider, more beers and whatever else was going whilst rocking out in the kitchen to Captain Beyond and Budgie. I don’t remember leaving but I must’ve staggered home at some point and the band jumped in a cab for the hotel. Days off RULE!
