Hi folks!

Like they say: ‘Been a long time, been a long time, been a long time’ – Led Zeppelin – Rock and Roll, one of Rock’s all time greatest bands and my favourite; but instead of been a long ‘lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time’, I think been a long ‘busy time’ would be more appropriate & an apt reason for the procrastination and the sheer lack of stimulating those little grey cells of putting my thoughts to paper. 

Thankfully this month has looked pretty solid – travel and back-to-back gigs in the first week; four consecutive gigs in the coming days including our third trip to Goa this month itself! Something we are really looking forward to is playing on the Radio One Stage at the ‘Eat Play Love’ festival on the 18th of December at the Mahalaxmi Racecourse. This is probably our last public gig this year and we would LOVE for all of you to be there to end the year with a bang! 

Well the festive season is upon us….Christmas Is Here!!! (For those of you who didn’t get that, head over to iTunes and type in those 3 words). 

As we look back on this year, it has been a good one for T.O.P. and I’m optimistic that the same has been for all of you. Of course there must have been some lows, but it is prudent to remember, joys and sorrows, successes and failures are like the ebb and flow of the tides. So let’s make the most of the good times, there is always the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.Ah, but when you are looking for the rainbow always look up to the sky, never, never look down! (Charlie Chaplin).

So with humility and deep gratitude as always, Zarir, Gavin, Garth, Sam, Atish and myself thank each and every one of you for all the love and support, and we would like to wish all of you and your dear ones A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Wherever you’ll are, it’s Zelig Kerstfeest, Joyeux Noel, Subh Krisamas, Buon Natale, Feliz Navidad from us to you!!!

To end on a little more serious note :

I know it’s not too late

The world would be a better place

If we can keep the Christmas spirit more than one day in the year

Send a message loud and clear

To see the joy in children’s eyes

The way that the old folks smile

That makes you wish it was Christmas everyday!

– It’s Christmas Time – Bryan Adams

Bye for now, see you in the new year!!!
