    Best radio conversation with the rescue services ever…

    “OK. What is your position?”
    “We’re probably about halfway between the port of East London and Durban.”
    “No, no, no, what are your coordinates?”
    Moss had no idea what their coordinates were.
    “What rank are you?”
    “Well, I’m not a rank – I’m a guitarist.”
    A moment’s silence.
    “What are you doing on the bridge?”
    “Well, there’s nobody else here.”
    “Who’s on the bridge with you?”
    “So I said, ‘It’s me, my wife – the bass player, we’ve got a magician here…'”

    I read this earlier, what a rollercoaster. And what a hero.
