Hello and welcome to my website. So, what have I been up to recently?
Making a LEGACY record. We started in LA last Nov/Dec with Steve Ferrone, Phil Palmer and Pino Palladino at Steve's Drumroll studio and continued in Rome at Forward Studios, adding the rest of the guys. We're heading back to LA at the end of Aug to record more tracks then to Rome to finish the record. I like LA; the never ending sun is a big reason. Rome's not too bad either.
Another first: I played a show at the end of December in a huge underground cave in Castellano in Italy with DSL (Steve, Phil, Danny Cummings, Mel Collins, Mickey Feat, Primiano DiBiase and Marco Caviglia). Yes, it was cold.
And I was in Brazil with DSL...
...and since then we've played in Lugano, Rome, Luxembourg, Milan and Marsala in Sicily. Between those shows, I took my 87 year old mother to Spain and played some shows with David Knopfler in Germany and another with DSL in Chambery, France.
LEGACY: I'm producing, along with Phil Palmer, an album for our band LEGACY in Forward Studios which is half an hour outside of Rome in the Frascati region. It's nice there!
The first single from the record is Jesus Street, a song I wrote and have had in my metaphorical 'songs drawer' for a year or two . It's available now on iTunes and you can hear it on my MUSIC page.
I was in Peter Gabriel's Real World studio this week recording three tracks for Italian artist Pacifico.
I've been in my studio working on another TV ad, writing a song with Jamie Squire and working on songs for the LEGACY record with Phil Palmer. At the end of August Phil and I will be in LA recording them with Steve Ferrone and Nathan East, and after that we'll be in Rome completing the album.
When at home, I have a lot of fun on this:
It's a Scott E-ASpect CX 710, it has an electric engine and hydraulic disk brakes, it goes like stink and it's an absolute hoot. My association with Scott goes back to the early 90's when they first set up in the UK, and every bike I've owned thereafter has been a Scott. Great bikes, nice people.
And I've also been having fun in this little beauty.
Thanks for visiting, check out my other pages, keep in touch.
