Jim is a Scottish boogie piano man who has left his northern homeland to play music in southern Spain. He's utterly hopeless at DIY, so this is not your typical ‘new life abroad’ book where the author rebuilds a ruin with his bare hands. Jim's hands are only useful only for playing piano and “the odd bit of sensual massage”.... Jim came to Spain to say “Yes” to every chance to play music of every kind. If you've ever wondered what it's like playing piano with an opera singer in prison, or being stalked by a washboard player, now's your chance to find out. Add a violin-playing Elvis, a stretch Shirley Bassey, a jazz funeral, the most confusing Christmas carol service in Spain, and a teetotal Scottish ceilidh. Then there's Jim's hilarious account of possibly the most unromantic Valentine's night in history. Apart from music, Jim's other main interests are making chutney and collecting spatulas! But the real hero of this book is Jim's rescue cat Sammy, who has turned his house into a Tom & Jerry film. ‘Stuff happens’ to the boogieman. This really is quite unlike any other book you've ever read about Spain, music, cats and spatulas.
