Andy Fairweather LowAnyone close to Bremen/Hamburg/Hanover check out Andy Fairweather Low and the Low Riders at Worpswede Music Hall 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’

Jimi used to come and jam with Amen Corner when they had a residency at the famous Speakeasy club in Margaret St. London.
The first time he asked to play bass and so Clive handed over his bass then Jimi turned to me and asked what we were going to play I said Otis Readin’s  “Can’t turn you loose’   he immediately turned to Dennis, the drummer, and counted us in 1-2-3-4- and he had the right key and bass part even though I believe he played with the bass upside down (he was a left-handed player), work that one out!

There are many stories to tell about our tour with Jimi Hendrix I will post them all here eventually.
Did you see the tour? Please tell me about that night.

See the official tour poster on Dennis’s site, Amen Corner was billed directly below Jimi

Can also be seen here on Dennis’s MySpace site

Fairweather was Amen Corner without the sax players Mike Smith and Alan Jones. For a while we toured with a large brass section but then I left, eventually to join Strawbs, and the band carried on for a short while before disbanding.
