Drummer's Night in Boston 2005 - Sponsored by Right Turn.
Featuring Chad Smith, John Blackwell, Horatio El Negro Hernandez, Simon Kirke, and Eguie Castrillo.
This DVD documents a remarkable one-night-only performance by five of the biggest names in the drum world, as they play live onstage, both solo and then together in a show-stopping finale in a benefit for Right Turn. You'll experience up close: the amazing handwork of Prince's drummer John Blackwell; heavy-yet-tasty band approach playing by Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers; classic rock icon Simon Kirke; and the fiery, polyrhythmic, jaw-dropping ensemble playing of drummer's drummers Horatio El Negro Hernandez and Eguie Castrillo.
Drummer's Night in Boston 2005 gives you unlimited access to the artists, with exclusive backstage interviews, and spirited performances captured live with multiple cameras in sparkling digital video and audio. 91 minutes,

Joe loves Free and Paul Kossoff's
guitar playing. Joe's aim was to recapture Kossoff's spirit and to play his solo as
best as he could as well as add his feel and nuances to it, which he thinks he did.
All right now was recorded in one take and there are no overdubs as he wanted to
capture the feel of the song as he plays it live.
Joe's tribute to Koss will be coming soon to his website

A legendary rock drummer, Simon Kirke co-founded Free, whose records included the classic,
All Right Now. Later he co-founded Bad Company, one of the biggest and best live acts, selling over 60 million singles and albums.
This performance, when he appears with Larry Oakes (formerly of Foreigner)
will enable you to hear Simon playing guitar and piano, telling stories, singing the hits of Free and Bad Company,
and introducing his own songs.
Simon is an icon to me.

An incredibly huge thank you goes out to everyone who came out to support Simon Kirke and Freeway this weekend!!!!
The project has been a truly amazing experience for us, two fantastic dates (Fri 23 in Deal, Kent and Sat 24 in Tynemouth) with two outstanding audiences - thanks for helping us to lift the roof! On both nights, Simon Kirke opened the proceedings, accompanied by Larry Oakes, with a 70-minute acoustic set containing some Free / Bad.Co classics, plus some of his newer, solo material. What class!
Freeway took to the stage next, and with Terry Wilson-Slesser on vocals they took an ecstatic crowd through a set of Free's finest - but then, they're all fine, aren't they? - and were overjoyed to be joined at the climax of the night by Simon Kirke himself on the drums, to finish of the proceedings in fine style with All Right Now, Wishing Well and (in Tynemouth) The Hunter. The crowd in Deal were also lucky enough to witness Geoff Whitehorn take over the guitar playing on Wishing Well, and to see Simon Kirke receive a presentation of a gold disc from Ian Brenchley of Universal Records for UK sales of the Free Forever DVD.
It has been an honour and a privilege to work with Simon (and Larry!). We can't thank them enough for coming all the way over from the USA to make this dream come true for us. Big love to you both.
Special thanks also go to:
John Buckton (for organising simply everything and making it all work)
Rob Dunn (for passing on the sticks, what a star)
Rick Hunt (for staying on that stage in Deal when all of Freeway had abandoned you...we salute you!)
Terry Wilson-Slesser (just for being Sless, pure class)
Suzanne and Jon at the Astor Theatre (best hospitality EVER)
Ian Brenchley (for not turning back on on the motorway when all seemed lost...and for the disc, a magic moment)
And me, apparently...for whatever it is that I do that makes it all go smoothly! If you have pics, vids or reviews of either of these sensational shows, send them HERE, now!! We'll put the best ones on the site, so get sending!!
