Issue 237 – September 2021

August 30, 2021 in Editorial, Uncategorized

Bass player Gerry McAvoy admitted, over the course of a relaxed 45-minute conversation, that recollections of some of his later years with Rory were “a little fuzzy” but, on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary deluxe re-issuing of Gallagher’s eponymous debut album his memories of his first sessions with Rory way back in 1971, were crystal clear.

Also re-visiting some golden days this issue is Bernie Marsden, who talks Whitesnake and beyond in Part 2 of  our lengthy interview with the man of whom B.B.King once said, “There’s only a handful of white musicians who can play the blues...that Whitesnake guy, Bernie Marsden, he’s got it.” If you enjoyed last month’s feature, you’ll love this one too. Elsewhere, there’s sound sense and wisdom from the wonderful Eric Bibb, Connor Selby, Papa George and Dawson Smith, Robert Jon on the new Wreck album and newcomers Elli de Mon and Lena Morris. And, with luck and a following wind, as gigs finally get going again, next month will see the return of our live reviews section, which has lain dormant for so long.

Go Well.
