Chris Barron Blogs from ‘Somewhere in Kuwait’

Chris Barron is currently overseas, playing a series of shows for U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East. In addition, the Time Bandits leader/Spin Doctors frontman will blog throughout his journey.

We played base a here in Kuwait tonight, Barron wrote in his most recent entry. Im not sure if Im supposed to tell the name of it because we were told not to blog where weve been for a few days after so lets call it camp somewhere in Kuwait. Its kind of funny. We got to camp somewhere in Kuwait and they took us into a conference room and showed us a video about the camp. It started out with a bunch of footage of tanks and guns and stuff being fired with a bunch of very patriotic voice over by former president George W.Bush. When that ended, we were shown some slides of facts about the camp (they have training in every weapon from a side arm to a 500 pound bomb) and about Kuwait. (they got their independence in 1961) and then they showed us a map that explained where the stage was and where the DFACs (mess halls) were and there was some thing called MWR is. when the presentation was over they asked if we had any questions. I asked, whats MWR?

Barrons Iraq & Roll Tour will continue this evening. He is also profiled in the August/September issue of Relix.
