This is the house of Juliet in Verona, Italy. Whether or not she was a real person I don’t claim to know and doesn’t matter to the lovers who papered the wall at right with messages. It’s a bed and breakfast now.
A German fan who came to our show last night told us, “Delta Moon has a talent for playing in beautiful places.” Verona certainly qualifies. We played a marvelous venue in a 14th Century cellar with arches supported by marble stones filched from the Roman arena across the way.
Last night I dedicated a song to the lovers of Verona. The choice of Muddy Waters’ “The Same Thing” may have been a little earthy, but I think Shakespeare would have approved:
Why do the men go crazy
When a woman wears her dress so tight?
Must be that same old thing
Makes a tomcat fight all night.
