The members are...

Post by Gerby » 29 Jan 2008, 16:34

Surprisingly nobody started the topic yet.So here I go:

Neil Drinkwater: piano
Colin Hodginkson: bass guitar
Robert Ahwai: guitar
Martin Ditcham: drums
and of course Chris and his multiple talents.

No and that's a pity because he took a lot of pleasure beeing on stage during the previous tour :(
Well you know he has his own carreer too.

Hi Gerby,Lilybee,
I agree with you.I think Sylvan Marc will be missed.It will be interesting to see what that the new album will be like without his talents.I liked his style after Chris of course :) :)
Kind regards
Tina :) :)
Pick up the pieces and start again.

Yes, and can someone please tell me why in the book there 4 members named in the liner (plus CR - total 5) , four on cover including CR, and only three inside except for the photo used for cover. No mention of Robert Ahwai inside. ??

Hi Imagekr,
I have asked my self the same question and an answer I came up with and its only my opinion is that the 4 on the cover which are Robert Chris Colin and Martin are the band The Hofner Bluenotes.Any other musicians may not be permanent and will change as does the music.Something along the lines as over the years the likes of Max Middleton and Sylvan Marc along with all the rest.As to why Robert is not on the inside of the book is anyone's guess.
Tina :) :)

Hello everyone,

I think Chris Rea was undecided and only picked his newest keyboard player in the last moment, prior to the tour, so to speak. That's why he's not featured in either the text nor in any picture or the front cover. It could have been a difficult choice between Paul Hirsh, Neil Drinkwater or someone else? He must have tried other keyboard players as well.
Take care,
Chris

That is 100% correct (although Paul Hirsh was not in the "league"); they auditioned keyboardplayes only weeks before the start of the tour...

Hi, :D

Here's a little more background on Colin Hodgkinson's former band "Back Door":

And here there's a 2 part interview with Colin, back in 2003:

...and another with Tony Hicks, who happened to mention the original Fireflies...
