Trapeze "You are the music, we're just
the band" One
of the finest bands ever. Heavy metal funk, indeed! Mel Galley
Humble Pie “Humble Pie” (Beardsley b&w cover).
Just one of the best sounding albums I ever heard. My all-time
favorite band. Steve Marriott - R.I.P.
Zeppelin 1. A life changing experience. John Bonham - R.I.P.
James Gang “‘yer album”. This one showed me
what music from the US could be.
Of Power “Back to Oakland”. Top shelf.
the proudest moment in your life/career, and why?
The proudest moment in my career was 1971
when the first record I did came out in Europe. What a rush to
see and hear that. It was just a single, but it was quite a feeling.
I was 16 years old.
What's the best gig you've ever seen, and what made it so?
gig I ever saw was Humble Pie at the Fillmore East 1971. They
opened their set with “Money, That’s What I Want”.
I lost my mind. The whole roof of the Fillmore just blew off.
