Any other band/artist I’ve been connected with
When not creating music I like to make videos for my friends this is the latest for my friend Brian Parrish…
This was an amazing concert by Cerrone in Paris with so many great performers…
Tony Visconti confirms piano player on Bang A Gong Get It On…
This was a concert I had the pleasure of participating in. It was a once in a lifetime experience to be there with lasers shooting up from my feet to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Thank you Marc and apologies for being such a pain, I had a most terrible stomach pain that night after eating something dreadful that afternoon in the Tour Eiffel…
First Whistle Test performance by the PSB’s see also the ‘Opportunities’ clip and you’ll see the 2 Fairlights we also used to program the tracks but appart from that all was live. I’d forgotten what a really great sound we created that night.
A really good night! myself and Terry Bishop played a selection of our favourite songs for all our friends and neighbours in Canillas.
Thanks also to Mark Shurey (Pimientito) for playing some amazing classical and flamenco guitar. See you all next year when we hope to give a concert each month through the spring and summer and shall be inviting guest musicians and singers for each event.
Quote from Chris Lowe during an interview with Johnny Marr
“CL: I’d like to have been in the Bee Gees when they were doing Saturday Night Fever in Miami. Blue Weaver, who we worked with – he used to detonate the pyrotechnics on Tragedy. I wouldn’t have minded doing that.”

Anyone close to Bremen/Hamburg/Hanover check out Andy Fairweather Low and the Low Riders at Worpswede Music Hall http://musichall-worpswede.de/ onthe 3rd/4th April. Andy is now getting recognition again (rightly so) as an artist in his own right and not just a sidekick to Eric Clapton or Roger Waters. Go for it Fair!
Who says there’s no such thing as ‘Welsh Soul’ ….. b*ll*cks! check this out ‘People Get Ready – Jeff Beck and Andy’
Only just read that an old friend Kenny Moore died while on tour with Tina Turner in 1997 I wondered why I hadn’t heard of him for such a long time.
Kenny was a lovely person and radiated a warmth and generosity that is rare these days. He was a fantastic piano player and his roots were in gospel music. I worked with him in Lausanne Switzerland and again in my home studio where I had the pleasure of listening to him and Judy Cheeks sing gospel and blues for hours, we didn’t get much work done that day they just sang and sang more. I wish I’d turned the tape machine on I still kick myself.
Here are some performances with Tina…
This is also great but I believe some of his solo performance has been edited out…please watch all
