Dave Weckl at Ronnie’s

After a very nice time in Little Italy, Dave posed for some shots quickly before service started at Ronnie Scott’s. Over in the UK with Mike Stern Band with Randy Brecker and Chris Minh Doky.

Stuart Cable passes.

Very sorry to hear about this great musician and champion of other’s music passing over to the other side. I got to work with him on a couple of things. Editorial for Rhythm Magazine, and Yamaha UK’s Backbeat magazine; where he shared the front cover with Mark Richardson. Suffice to say it was a brilliant day in his company, in fact in his back garden for most of it.

Michael Lee departed

Michael Lee Bristol March 2006
Michael Lee Bristol March 2006

Of the hundreds of musicians I have met, Michael was one of the most generous & talented. He was also , in my experience, prone to having adventures. Only a couple of nights out with him, but you knew he was enjoying every moment. These pictures are from March 2006, the last time I saw him. Taken in Bristol at a soundcheck for a Thin Lizzy concert. He was in fantastic form. Famed for playing with supergroups like Page and Plant, Cult, Little Angels etc; he was also very giving with his time for up and coming drummers and well just enthuastic about music and everything about the industry.

RIP

Shot on digital 35mm but I DO so love some random borders you used to get from Polaroids, so have cheated with some old scans from “andrearusky” I found 5 years ago!
