Joe Jackson tour

Joe is one of my favorite massage clients AND friends. He lives in Berlin since about 1 1/2 years now and usually comes over once a week (when I am in town) for a massage. I have been massaging him for many years now and I have never even hinted around for an autograph or a picture, as I know he is extremely shy and private and hates the whole fame hoopla. He is so interesting AND his two favorite bands are the Beatles and Frank Zappa, so we get along JUST FINE.

We've walked together to my favorite Zappa bar here in Berlin a couple times, where the Zappa fans were trying to hide any star struck feelings. Joe is so fun to talk to and his shows are outrageously good.  The last tour he did a marvelous cover of "Girl" by the Beatles and "Dirty Love" by Frank Zappa. AMAZING. 

We sometimes argue about smoking though, heh heh, as he knows I loathe cigarettes and he is so pro-smoking he even wrote a pamphlet about it, which you can download from his web site:



He is about to embark on a world wide tour, so if he is heading to your area, try to see his show, you won't regret it.
