Last night, I had one of the most incredible nights. I was at a Derek St
Holmes performance at the Peckerhead just outside Atlanta. And I must say,
Rob and I had a an amazing night. Derek was just AWESOME!! The crowd were
estatic with his singing and superb guitar playing. For those who are not
familar with Derek: he was a member of the Ted Nugent Band........ He is
best known for his Stranglehold, Live it Up, Hey Baby songs. It is his voice
you hear on those tracks.
Derek was recently
performing at the Rock to the Rescue shows in Atlanta, New Jersey and
Cleveland along side Bad Company. Where he certainly got the crowd rocking (
no surprise )
You should have seen him go last night WHOAH.......What a rocker he is!!!!!
The devoted fans last night were on their feet throughout the night. Derek
also sings Fire and Water and The Stealer in his show. Which puts a huge
smile on my face I can tell you. :-)
Another adventure Derek was on recently was the Rock and Roll Fantasy
Camp which was held in LA.
Along with Simon
Kirke, a number of top musicians attended this camp to create a rock and
roll fantasy for music lovers by spending a few days teaching them to play
and recording songs with them. A dream come true I would say :-)
I first met Derek at the "Itchycoo Festival" where Paul Rodgers
and his solo band were playing, this was the show that the young singer
Sammy Jay had her great fortune in doing a duet with Paul. Derek then was
with Big People in which the late Ben Orr was a part of. His dream is to
perform someday with one his favourite singers, PAUL RODGERS.
One of my all time favorite CDs is Now
and Then, Derek's solo CD.
I am delighted to announce DEREK ST HOLMES will be our special guest
SUNDAY 22nd December, 3pm East coast time and 12 noon Pacific time and 8pm
UK time. Hope you can join us.
