featuring Terry Slesser
Celebrating the music of Free and Paul Kossoff
Formed, and based, in the North East of England, FREEWAY have played sell-out concerts at various venues around the country.
For the past few years this band has been invited to headline at the annual Free Conventions by popular demand. In December 2005, they received a standing ovation at Newcastle City Hall; a great honour for Freeway, as Free played at this venue to many devoted North East fans on numerous occasions.
The recent recruitment of Terry Slesser (ex Paul Kossoff's Back Street Crawler) as Freeway's permanent vocalist has raised the integrity of the band beyond that of other tribute / covers acts.
Freeway recently received this message from one of their heroes: -
They have done a great job in honouring our music and I wish them all the best in the years to come.... Best Wishes, Simon Kirke (legendary drummer with Free and Bad Company). In fact, Simon was so impressed with the band that he's actually played the drums with them on several occasions, and has invited them to join him on his UK tours throughout 2007.

Meet Danny - What a delightful voice he has !! - Lucy
|Hi, this is Danny Nova. You may or may not know me and you may or may not have heard of me but I am an ethical Vegan, and promoting the Vegan lifestyle is a part of my mission, as well as working with organizations for sick children and homeless teens. Besides my personal mission, lets talk about the music. If you know me, then you know that I am a serious songwriter, play 10 instruments (Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums, Flute, Sax, Violin, Clarinet, Harmonica, Various Percusion) and sing my ass off. I regard myself as second to none because I don't compete with anyone, especially with any other artist. I have been playing music since I was six years old. Back then, I didn't know about fame or fortune, nor do I care about those things now. I do what I do with music because it's what I have always loved to do.|
Meet the Very Talented - DAMIEN LEWIS
I started playing the drums at the age of five growing up in Detroit, Michigan. Born on the sweet sounds of Motown and 70's Rock and Roll. I have been in the music scene since my earliest memories. This is a direct result of my father David Lewis who was the FOH Sound Engineer and Tour Manager for huge groups like Blue Oyster Cult, Foghat, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, along with multitudinous others. This allowed me the opportunity to fall in love with the drums at afternoon sound checks. Soon, I was the one checking the drums and my relationships with the older accomplished musicians was transcendent. I once introduced my 2nd grade teacher to Neil Diamond, and got dropped off at elementary school in the tour bus when Foghat was in town. I now spend most of my time in the tour bus or van.
I have a recording studio, and I've been focusing on engineering and producing albums of all genres as well as playing live nearly every night. My latest projects include new albums from: Motor City Josh, Will Scruggs Jazz Fellowship, Mike Lowry, Chris Cauley, Mimi Holland, Rojo Diablo, Chicago Joe, Zach Pride, Charlie Wooton, Jess McGrath, Chris Duarte, and Revelation. Currently I'm on tour with the ass kicking "Chris Duarte Group"

CHECK IT OUT !!!! :-)
Bad Company is one of the best-loved English rock bands of the 1970s and 80s. Founded in 1973 with former Free vocalist Paul Rodgers, guitarist Mick Ralph, drummer Simon Kirke (also of Free) and bassist Boz Burrell, they were managed by Peter Grant, of Led Zeppelin fame, and were the first band to be signed to Led Zeppelins Swan Song record label.
As the first super group of the 70s, some of their international charting hit songs include: "Can't Get Enough", "Movin' On", "Bad Company", "Feel Like Makin' Love", "Young Blood", Burning Sky, "Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy", "Ready for Love", "Shooting Star", Silver, Blue & Gold", and "Run With The Pack".
was formed to recreate exactly the aura and excitement of this beloved super group in action. Filling the role of singer Paul Rodgers (who was known as the "the Voice" since his days in Free) is the multi-talented Mark McPhail. Mark not only sings and plays like his Bad Co. counterpart, but bears an uncanny likeness to him as well. From his high-energy stage presence, to his incredible rapport with audiences, youll swear youre seeing the real thing.
Guitarist/singer Fred Sampson brings a wealth of rock and roll experience to the band, and along with the dynamic rhythm section of David Clark (bass/vocals) and Glenn Hicks (drums/vocals), they complete the powerhouse experience that is Desolation Angels The Ultimate Tribute to Bad Company.
(PR) Eagle Rock Entertainment, will release Paul Rodgers debut solo DVD ($14.98) Live In Glasgow on May 29 and CD ($13.98) on April 17. Live In Glasgow, recorded in October of 2006 on the last date of his Sold Out UK tour (which included a date at Londons prestigious Royal Albert Hall), is stunning proof that Rodgers voice has gained strength and sounds stronger than ever. This 135-minute DVD, shot with 13 cameras, includes brand new songs Warboys (A Prayer for Peace) and Far Distant Shore, as well as songs he has not performed in 35 years, and many of his hits, including All Right Now, Feel Like Making Love and Cant Get Enough. Soulful, bluesy, swaggering, he belts out his songs, and also plays piano and guitar. The band: guitarist Howard Leese (Heart), bassist Lynn Sorenson, drummer Ryan Hoyle (Collective Soul) and 17-year old guitar prodigy Kurtis Dengler.

***Brian Wiltsey ***
One of Atlanta's most buzz-worthy artists has release his new album Rain and Flies and it is already said to be Brian Wiltsey's best work to date. Wanting to write more band oriented songs this time around, this album definitely rocks more than his previous projects. Already known for his dynamic, soulful voice, it just gets stronger and stronger with each album.
Rain and Flies starts off with a darker love song called "On My Own" with a great line in the chorus, "On my own I will fake it through the night, there is so much more to tell you but nothing left to say, I'll just be on my way."
I think Brian is one of THE very best singer/songwriters around today
Excellent album......Grab the cd and tell me I am wrong.... Lucy Piller

In the long tradition of power trios, Andrew Goldring & The Rosedale Power Co. pay homage to the blues from Earl Hooker to Rory Gallagher and root themselves in the rock of Cream and the James Gang. They play Neo-Classic Blues/Rock somewhere between the Hendrix of Rose Hill Drive and the Zeppelin of Wolfmother. Andrew's beyond-his-years guitar skill makes listeners take a second look because their eyes can't quite grasp what their ears are hearing. This is one 14-year-old who can hang with the big boys.
Gov't Mule frontman Warren Haynes has recently lamented, ""People are more interested in becoming famous than they are in becoming good at something." Joe Bonamassa talks about guitar players signed to major labels who ". . . only know a few chords and are more interested in how they look than how they sound . . . they don't go back and learn about Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters or Django Reinhardt."
Andrew Goldring has four long-term goals. 1. Become the best guitar player and singer/songwriter he can possibly be. 2. Open for Joe Bonamassa 3. Play the Montreaux Jazz Festival 4. Get a driver's license.
Bill Wyman and Jack Bruce Unite for U.K.s
Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp
The camp that transforms rock enthusiasts into rock stars is set to open its doors on British soil this May. With the Rolling Stones founding bassist Bill Wyman and Creams bassist Jack Bruce signed on to headline, the weekend promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to jam with rock legends. As Wyman says, Ill bring my axe in the studio and jam on a Stones tune with every camper! Open to everyone from CEOs to soccer moms, musical novices to garage band veterans, the Gibson-sponsored event will be held Memorial Day weekend, from
Thursday, May 24 to Monday, May 28 at Abbey Road Studios in London.
Other famous rockers taking part in the London camp include Gary Brooker (Procol Harum), Jon Lord (Deep Purple), Paul Carrack (Squeeze, Mike and the Mechanics), Simon Kirke (Bad Company and Free), Mick Ralphs (Bad Company), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Spencer Davis (Spencer Davis Group), Neil Murray (Whitesnake and Black Sabbath), Sandy Gennaro (Cyndi Lauper and Joan Jett), and Spike Edney (Queen).
Campers are put through the paces as rock luminaries, music industry pros, and famed studio players transform them from budding amateur musicians to full-fledged rock stars. From dawn to dusk, campers eat, drink, and play music with the stars during surreal one-on-one master classes and late night jam sessions. Then, campers form bands with rock star counsellors, rehearse, collaborate, create music, and finally hit the stage as genuine rock stars playing top-notch Gibson instruments.
The camp was immortalized in a 2002 episode of The Simpsons, during which an ecstatic Homer attends the camp taught by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
On May 29, real-life campers will have the opportunity to perform at the world famous birthplace of the BeatlesCavern Club in Liverpoolwhich is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year.
Also in the works is another U.S. Rock n Roll Fantasy camp, set for Labor Day weekendAugust 31 to September 3 in New York City. Paul Stanley, the legendary KISS frontman, will return as a guest performer at the camp. Stanley will perform at B.B. King's Blues Club in the grand finale Battle of the Bands, playing classic KISS hits with the campers.
To be a part of the camp isn't just a fantasy for the campers, its my fantasy too. [Its] a way for me to say thank you, says Stanley. To get up and play with people who have that exuberance and energy is a gift to me as much as to anybody else. Joining Paul Stanley will be Ted Nugent, Scott Ian of Anthrax, and legendary group Mountain.

Todays upload I nearly didn't share with you as it is very personal. You
have seen my posts about Alabama and this was the ultimate personal
pilgrimage to honour Tom Hendrix's great great grandmother. A journey I
connected with from afar and one I am so blessed to have finally made.
Singing to this 86 year old stone talker, I was overcome with emotion.
This is for me the reason I love music. Never let the legends fade
people NEVER ❤
