Hi everyone, isn't the internet wonderful? I discovered lily's you tube clips, and was over the moon when she replied to my message.
I don't even remember doing the beat club show! I already had a copy of rockpallast, but it is poor quality, so that was nice to see also.
I have to make one small correction to lily's posting, I joined Chris after water sign was recorded, so am not on that album. I remember rehearsing at Jimmy Pages studio, the mill, in cookham, and we shot the promo for heartbeat down the road at bray studios.
The 1st drummer I played with on that tour/tv shows, was Gilson Lavis, who is now to be seen on Later with Jools Holland, as his regular drummer.
In the new year,C.R. auditioned another bass player and drummer,as was his way, but asked me back whilst recording Wired to the moon. I remember meeting the new drummer when travelling,by car, to montreux in switzerland. The driver of that Saab was none other than Chris Difford from Squeeze, and we had to endure the french lorry drivers strike, driving up embankments to avoid the jams!! I remember travelling at 120mph at times, and it was very late when we arrived.The studio was by lake Geneva, and was owned by Queen, who, along with C.R.and Squeeze, shared the same management.
If more fans are interested, I will continue this soon.
Thank you for the cheeky compliment lily.
