Rob Lantz is the new Wes Macaleer?

There must be something in the water over there in Brighton that causes musicians to become politicians. Or politicians to become musicians. Or something like that. First we had Wes Macaleer, renowned for bringing his guitar along to staff celebrations when he was Minister of Economic Development. And now Councillor Rob Lantz unleashes his guitar on us.

Wes was more “up in the air, the Junior Birdsmen” than Rob who, as he describes it, is channelling the Allman Brothers.

I don’t think the Allman Brothers will go over as well as at 501 Queen, though.

Translation for non-residents: “501 Queen Street Seniors Residence”.

I would be willing to make a generous donation to charity for the opportunity of seeing a jam session between Wes and Rob. Especially if they tilted in the Allman direction.

I’ve been at a senior’s home with Wes for one of his sing alongs, but only as an observer — we didn’t trade licks! I’ll pitch your idea Peter, but I might have to learn “It’s a Long Way To Tipperary” first.
