Le p'tit Laurent... a super(tramp) breakfast in Amercia.
Can anyone forget that incredible introduction for the Supertramp's song Breakfast in America on ther album "Live in Paris"? The words of saxophone player John Helliwell could easily be the best intro for a live song ever: "We went to a petit restaurant and had langostinos, deux types of spaghetti, une type of ravioli, beaucoup de vin and deux grande espressos. Sorry, but.... it was an italian restaurant, but it wasn't as good as Breakfast In America!" The problem is - the best Breakfast in America is actually a French restaurant. Well, not so sure about the breakfast as I only had dinner there.... I am still recovering from the incredible experience.
