Casey James Heads to Rhode Island…and Tweets About Neck Pillows

This morning as Casey James and drummer Blaine Crews began their travels to Cranston, Rhode Island for tonight’s show at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet, Casey took a moment to update his fans on Twitter.

Casey started off by tweeting this picture of Blaine with the comment “@Blainecrews you look comfy with that little neck pillow. Maybe I should get one…”

As we know, Casey is a frugal guy and he followed with “The problem is that I saw one for ten bucks somewhere. They are 20 here.”

That pillow must have looked too good, though, because a few minutes later he wrote ” Ok. I broke down and spent the extra ten. This next flight is long. And full. And I haven’t slept. Naptime!”

Inspired by Casey’s neck pillow dilemma, Jen T. (@NYYCEJFanJT) has written this little “Ode to the Neck Pillow.”

Ode to the Neck Pillow

Oh wondrous gray pillow
So fluffy and soft
You’re wrapped ’round my neck
I prepare for take-off

Oh sweetest gray pillow
Where I lay my head
On long travel days
You’ll be as good as a bed

Oh cozy neck pillow
You cost 20 bucks
Could have snagged you for 10
If i’d had better luck

Oh lovely neck pillow
We’re three hours in
Your air is deflating
You feel kind of thin

Oh crappy neck pillow
I’m still wide awake
Three babies are screaming
Not much more I can take

We just hit some bumps
Feel like I might barf
You lousy neck pillow
I’m going back to my scarf

Check back later tonight for news and updates from tonight’s show as well as a live call-in from the venue for those who are not able to be there in person.

    Once again, thank you a million for keeping us up dated on Casey. It’s always fun to get a laugh in now and then. I can’t imagine how Blaine and Casey would look with each of them and this neck roll. . . .extremely funny. But we love them, so have fun you too. If it wasn’t to TCJB we wouldn’t get all this wonderful info, again Thank you so much.

  3. Good one Jen! It’s so funny because it’s probably true! I was going to suggest Casey just bunch up a sweat top around his neck. Works just as well as a pillow but you can wear it later on. Hope the guys have a fun week!

    Casey you are the bomb! You gave a great show, although you must know, should you come back again you can plan on some snow. Maybe dress in a suit, a tie or bow then finish the night with a rocking moe-joe! Yahoo to you Casey James
