Post tour landing

What a joy and honour it’s been to perform with Deborah Bonham on Paul Rodger’s tour. This has been the first time that Paul has performed the classic Free material since that band ended and his performance was stunning every night. An absolute gent too and a real pleasure to meet him. Paul was using Deborah’s band and extra kudos goes to Pete Bullick for his chunky riffing and achingly languid bends.

Kicking off in Glasgow and ending at London’s Royal Hall, Debs delivered raw soul and passion. She really is world class. This format is challenging and I’m proud we achieved a sound substantial enough to fill these venues with just a voice and a guitar. Thanks to everyone who gave us their appreciation. Look forward to taking this project on…

We had no shortage of top drawer visitors. Robert Plant came down to Oxford along with Brian Johnson to join Paul and the boys on stage. The first time Brian had sung live since leaving AC/DC early last year. Top geezer. Brian May and Jimmy Page were in attendance at Albert Hall. Jimmy was on great form. A really great guy and fantastic to see him again. Heady days indeed!

I’m back with Nigel Kennedy this month. Another master. Gig update and more news shortly…
