Lucy’s parting words ... as she hopped onto the tour bus last night were “Wish Me Well” and she never looked back (literally).
And that was the last I saw of her.
Until that is... Pete walked on stage carrying her lovingly in his arms.
Wowwwwww She’d done it. She’d finally realised her dream and hit the big time.
Her last minute audition on the tour bus must have ticked all the right boxes and been a huge success.
I Can’t believe my eyes – one minute she’s sitting on a shelf at home practising her song, and a couple of hours later she’s
On stage with her Hero – Pete Doherty - as his bloody backing singer.
At one point she even shared the mike (mice) with Pete – duetting with him.
Tears of pride welled up in my eyes.
I haven’t heard from her since, and she’s not answering her mobile, so I’m getting a little worried now – because what I thought was a glimpse of a new red polka dot skirt could well have been her little spotted hanky tied up with all her worldly goods. (the kind you tie to a stick and ceremoniously throw over your shoulder in all the old fairytales)
After the show, when leaving my seat -I had to make sure no-one could see my bottom. – not that I sat down that much, but the one time I did - someone chucked a fag end away and it ended up in my seat and set me on fire ! wondered what the sensation was that was getting hotter and hotter.... first I thought it was a slug of warm lager...and then it was hot as coal... owwwcccchhhhhhh. and then I had a glaring big hole in my skirt
After reclaiming my camera from the ‘heavies’ which was snatched from me mid-gig.
I then walked round to the side exit to congratulate her – but there was no sign of her...
I personally thought she’d have headed into the little olde pub next door to wait for me - cos she likes the odd tipple – but
I heard a low whisper in the crowd - that after the show, she’d been offered a modelling contract and someone actually witnessed her being whisked off and stepping into a Black Land Rover Registration GIO ... which was still parked up outside. The windows were blacked out – so I couldn’t see inside. Hmmmmmmm
Looks like her voice and that little Polka Dot number went down a ‘Storm’
YES...... WOW, DOUBLE BLOODY WOW.... The Show was Amazing !
PETE - YOU EXCELLED YOURSELF.
We LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT
And a thousand thankyous for taking Lucy into your heart and on to the stage with you.
You really are a Sweetheart with a heart of Gold.
From this day forth – may polka dots fill your eyes – and skies !
Please look after her and try and Keep her off the hard stuff – She’s led a very sheltered life.
The worst she’s ever had is over-ripe gorgonzola
With special Love x x x Lorraine and Daisy
