3.10.83 Metz Europa, France "when the band played
the city of Metz in eastern France. We were staying in this little hotel
right in the centre somewhere and when we got up in the morning we all had
hangovers and badly needed something to eat. We were so late rising, we’d
missed breakfast and the kitchen was deserted. Now anyone who knows
Stranglers history will be aware that a hungry Jet is not a happy Jet, and
after we spent about 10 mins trying - and failing - to find a member of
staff, he lost patience. He marched into the kitchen, threw open the fridge,
pulled out all the eggs and bacon he could find, and started a massive fry
up. He ordered us all to sit down in the dining room, and every now and
again he’d poke his head out of the kitchen door and say, ‘Now who was it
who said they didn’t want mushrooms?’ He took all our breakfast orders one
by one! Brilliant - and one of the best fry ups I ever had."
