    Default Going Down with Henry

    Just got back home after playing a memorial gig to one of our bass players who sadly passed away in Dec 2015.

    An old friend of the band, Henry Spinetti, came along and played a couple of songs with the band. I hadn't seen Henry since I saw him with Judas Jump in the early 70s. Our singer had kept in touch and invited him along

    For those who don't know Henry, he has worked with Katie Melua, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Jones, Bill Wyman, Pete Townsend, Roger Daltry, Labi Siffri, Mike Batt, Joan Armatrading, Andy Fairweather -Low,The Herd, Leo Sayer, Gerry Rafferty, including the single 'Baker Street' and I'm sure many others. We had never played with him before and he had never played the kit either, but he was brilliant.

    We had a great time 'headlining' a collection of bands who knew or played with our bass player and raised a lot of money for a cancer charity

    Audio quality is a bit iffy as chap who took the video was probably a bit too close to us and the PA.

    Just loading a better video that a friend of the band took of the whole song from further back, so audio is a lot better. It actually shows the chap who took this video right at the front of the stage, which explains the distortion. I also make a longer cameo
