pre show ritual

Katy: Hi again and thank you so much for being our link to the band! My question is about Simon's "routine" prior to a show. I was wondering if he does anything special to warm up his voice prior to a show, if he has any special beverages he chooses to drink, any food or beverages he avoids, etc. I am a vocalist and often wonder what other people do. Thanks!

HI SUE. I POSED YOUR QUESTION TO SIMON AND HE SAID, "Generally I find a quick "Tabasco gargle" loosens the tubes before a performance.... honestly!s"
