I'm often asked about my music and why I rarely discuss it here. Why the conspiratorial silence?! Has he got something to hide?... Well no. The reason is far from that exciting. I simply try to keep the various aspects of my life in nice neat little boxes. Far less hassle that way!
On this occasion though, I thought it would be good to share with you my return to the world of rock legends: The Who. Anybody who has read my articles regularly will know that six months ago, my 14 year association with the longest running UK tribute act to The Who - "Who's Renown" - came to an ammicable end. I've always kept very busy with other musical projects, so I was surprised to bump into my ex-associates (bass player and drummer) in the studio recently.
They were working on a project with a mutual guitarist friend of mine, who is heading off to work over seas for several months. Catching up on old times posed the idea of recording a few tracks for posterity with our guitarist friend (who incidentally had never approached the material in this environment before!). Armed with a knackered voice (after a day of singing other material) and my camera (which goes everywhere musically!), we recorded well into the night. I had a great time getting back together with the old gang, despite the sore throat, tiredness and bum notes. That's what you get for not playing the songs regularly!
Below are 3 tracks: "The Kids Are Alright", "5;15" & "Baba O'Riley" (Teenage Wasteland!), and I've also included 2 live recordings from our final show together in Santa Pod last year (well worth a look)... just for old time sake! Turn your volume up to eleven and I hope you enjoy.
Long Live Rock!
