‘It’s three in the afternoon and you’re listening to Gold Radio, the home of classic rock. We’re back with our special guests Steel Dragons. Great to have you here guys.’

‘Thank you. Great to be here.’

‘Thirty years since you’ve toured Australia. A lot has happened since then.’

‘Yeah, back then we were just starting out, no idea where our journey would take us.’

‘What a journey it’s been. Sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. And your doing a greatest hits tour, is that right?’

‘That’s right. All our Aussie fans can finally hear the big hits.’

‘Is it right that all those years ago you had two steel dragons on stage with you?’

‘We did, wow, remember them.’

‘It got to the end of the tour and we had no money left to get back to England. We couldn’t afford to transport these huge sculptures by ship, so we sold them to a local scrapyard.’

‘Paid for our airfare home.’

‘I wonder whatever happened to them.’

  1. I liked your take on the prompt Iain. It’s prompted me to wonder where some of the old rockers (rather than their props) are now – maybe driving fork-lifts at a scrapyard or selling scented candles in the Lake District.

  2. Gosh, one could only hope they could get them back after a greatest hits album. Now I’m trying to imagine what “Steel Dragons” sounds like. Anything like AC/DC?
