Andrew is one of my favorite
Cotton Club Atlanta May 15th 2003
Tonight I went to see Damien Rice appear at the Cotton Club here in
Atlanta. I had added some video footage of this singer/songwriter from
Ireland some weeks ago. His voice and style appealed to me at once, but I
had not heard any of his CDs. After seeing the video footage I
bought my tickets to see him.
At first I was sad to learn only he was on and not him and his band,
but after the very first song I didn't care about the band not being
there, and in fact it showed how talented this guy is without any other
I have totally fallen in love with this guy's voice and performance. I
had never seen an act like it. And I have been around a loooooooooong
He sang so many songs, lasting more than 90 minutes ... The audience were
just in a trance like I was right through the show. He plays guitar with
such perfection and creates sounds with these hi-tech pedals and you are
just amazed the sound he makes. His songs were funny, sad, sexy and
everything else. He is such a small guy, but has a huge huge talent.
He will be playing quite a few more shows before he returns to Ireland.
Then he returns for a full tour with his band in Sept. I have NO doubt in
my mind these shows will be very successful. Catch him while the crowds
are small because soon everyone will know of Damien.
At long last Barry has his website
up and running.
WELCOME BACK BARRY TO
Spend some time listening to some of Barry's
And if you get a chance catch a live show
Especially if ANDREW
is on vocals
Drop Barry a message
and tell him you found him on
AQUALUNG who appeared on the same Top of the Pops show as BAD COMPANY last Sept.2002
Strange and Beatiful? Well, it's not for us to comment on the
personal traits of Matt Hales, but they do nicely sum up the dark and
twisted songs of Aqualung. We all know the single from that car ad but
there's a lot more to Aqualung than just that one song...
The brand new Free/Bad Co tribute band 'Heavy Load' are
preparing to take their show out around the live circuit. The band feature
Nick who was the former vocalist with Axis (as well as being ex-Nobodys
Fool, and the very first singer for Sticky Fingers). The band was
put together by Nick before Christmas, but the present line up was only
finalised in February of this year. The group are currently rehearsing at Axe
Victims studios in Gateshead and are just about ready to hit the road.
Their very first date is at the Office on Friday the 2nd of May.
It's in the downstairs room of the venue and admittance (just like the band)
is free! Heavy Load do their very best to recreate the original sound
and vibe of classic Free, but would also like to point out that a
third of their set will also be centred on the music of Bad Company
The club bombed in Tel Aviv is home of
Allrightnow band SOBO.
Tel Aviv blues bar,
was the scene of Tuesday night's suicide bomb attack.
The same club where SOBO play every Friday night.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends
who were attacked by terrorists. Please take the time
to sign the guest of of Mike's place.
Robert & Lucy
The message sent from Daniel of Sobo:
They just bombed Mike's Place,
it's where SOBO plays every Friday...
It's like I had a bomb in my living room...
I knew almost everybody there who got it bad...
It was an open jam session night, U can imagine that most of the people
there were musicians...
- Classic Whitesnake
Tony Martin - vocals
Bernie Marsden - guitar
Micky Moody - guitar
Neil Murray - bass
Josh Phillips - keyboards
Jimmy Copley - drums
Neil Murray says:
As the latest lineup of Whitesnake does not play many of the classic
songs of the late 70s and early 80s, M3 aims to be the band to fill that
gap. The fantastic talents of Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath), Josh Phillips
(ex-Big Country) and Jimmy Copley (ex-Paul Rodgers) will combine with
Whitesnake founder members Bernie, Micky and Neil to play the Whitesnake
songs that everyone wants to hear.
M3 is going on tour soon. Here are some dates we got, unfortunately
without any venues.
26/04/03 Russia -- 08/05/03 Holland -- 09/05/03 Belgium -- 11/05/03

Hi Y'all from Atlanta. As you all know I enjoy
sharing with you new music and artists who I come across. First
thank you to all the British fans who came out to see Motor City
Josh.(from Atlanta) Their tour in the UK was terrific. And the fans loved
them. Well done Josh.
What I have noticed in the last year or so
more and more solo artists are surfacing.
Many from the UK. First I noticed
Aqualung and now I want to share with you the Irish singer DAMIEN
His beautifully crafted songs are now
coming to the States. Check out his website at www.damienrice.com
Give his songs a listen, and I am sure you
will be hooked like I was the first time I heard him.
At long last music (real music) is coming

we need to listen to good music.........
Listen to his lyrics & try and catch a
show.............if they are not already sold out !!!!!!
