The Vicious Rumors tour was great – and excellent band to share the stage with and genuinely inspiring as well. The bus itself looked like it had been caught in the final bombing raids of Word War Two, but it was still an absolute pleasure. Not only Vicious Rumors, but also The Order Of Chaos and PhallaX – all good people and excellent bands.
Arriving back in the UK, Iron Knights are immediately in a state of upheaval, but any ideas about the band disappearing are premature. There are some great plans beginning to take shape.
Anyway…apart from that, I am now going to be drumming for certain shows with James Rivera’s ‘Sabbath Judas Sabbath’ tribute band. James has got one of those rare voices that can do complete justice to both Ronnie James Dio and Rob Halford, so am really looking forward to backing the Painkiller up on stage. He uses different bands for different geographic regions, so the first confirmed show that I am doing will be on 16 August at The Roadhouse in Birmingham…and there will be more. Can’t wait! \m/
As well as that, another project has started to take shape: Köbalt. Who is that? Well…early days, but it’s metal and it’s heavy. Going to take a while to get some sounds online, but watch this space…
Apart from that, Exorcism album is nearly recorded….a couple of other projects with some spectacular musicians are happily sitting in line to get kicked into gear….book and film stuff is inching towards more action……everything is cool.
