Man, that was painful !!

Just sat through an hour of cooking tips, steak knives & ab-blaster hawking
to see Rob's 5 minute interview on Bert' show.

Bert Newton is an Oz entertainment icon, and is much  loved by young & old
over here

Pretty much the same Q & A regarding touring the US post 9/11, but a few
interesting points -

- Bert says he is a fan of Rob's songwriting (NB. Bert would be well over 60
years old) Rob seemed genuinely flattered to hear this
- Rob said that whilst he will definitely record with the the other 3 guys
in the future, he does not intend to tour
- The usual "dumb drummer" lines made an appearance, to which Rob quipped
that he intentionally kept the book short to cater for other drummers

Anyway, better get back to studying for my exam !
