its been a while
I am looking for new opportunities – new bands, singers, artists – new opportunities to play… we have to play to feel normal right? I don’t mind a few weeks with no gigs but a few months is toooo weird. Luckily that is not the case and nor will it be. ‘HIT ME UP” as they say … or call me to come and play.
This last couple of years have been very cool – playing festivals including 2 festival gigs in South Africa! And another dream come true – to play Ronnie Scott’s (downstairs) I played upstairs in ’87 but that is a totally different thing. Anyways I met Wolfgang Haffner a very nice chap who let me use his Meinl cymbals – very dry and big but real quality.. the house Yammy kit was nice too. I used to go to Ronnie’s loads in the 90’s – as a member of the M.U Ronnie’s membership was £50 a year and £1 to get in Mondays to Thursdays – I practically lived there hahaha.
On the Ronnie’s and 606 gigs I have been playing with Jim Watson, SUCH a treat ..check out Jim on keyboards (plays with Manu Katche) – playing with him a few times this year has been just awesome … we fly off on his solos … he definitely IS music.
