Damien Rice

 Damien Rice
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 musicians.

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 time.

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.


New Website for Barry Richman

At long last Barry has his website up and running.
Spend some time listening to some of Barry's sound clips.
And if you get a chance catch a live show

Especially if ANDREW BLACK

 is on vocals 
Drop Barry a message and tell him you found him on

Aqualung Video

AQUALUNG who appeared on the same Top of the Pops show as BAD COMPANY last Sept.2002

Aqualung 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...

'Heavy Load' on the Road

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 as well.

Club bombing in Tel Aviv

The club bombed in Tel Aviv is home of
Allrightnow band SOBO.
"Mikes Place", a 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...

Jim Copley playing Wembley

Click for web siteM3 - 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 Wembley, London --  14/06/03 Portugal -- 04/07/03 Portugal -- 05/07/03 Germany -- 18/07/03 Portugal

There is also a new web page in the making.
