Been a bit pushed for time this week as I’m launching my own radio station – watch this space & I’ll keep you updated on developments. Anyway, I thought I’d share with you a series that pretty much sparked my career. This is an episode of a BBC show called ROCKSCHOOL which used to be screened on a Sunday afternoon in the UK. Within a couple of weeks of watching this very episode, which shows the basics of rock soloing, I answered an ad for a guitar player. Hey presto, I was in my first band!
Sure, it looks a bit dated now – especially the reference to Iron Maiden as being a “new” band – but the content still stands up, I reckon. Whatever, I hope it will provide a nice little trip down memory lane for those of us who cut our teeth in the musical cauldron that was ’80s rock. Watch out for a couple of appearances by a very young & fresh faced Gary Moore. I’d love to know what happened to the musicians in this studio band. Anyone know what they’re doing these days?
Until next time, have fun!
