  1. Just come across this post and saddened to hear about Mike's demise. Quite some years ago he stood in for my band Souled Asylum at AECC. Despite no rehearsal, all I had to do was show him the set list, remind him what came next and give him the odd tab nod and he never missed a beat. Very acomplished and solid drummer. No fuss, just sat in the mix and drove it. Downside was he ripped into the rider and by end of the night he could'nt stand up. We packed his kit away for him, drove him home in the truck and delivered him home. Upside, I have it all on VHS tape even ripping into the rider before taking stage. RIP Mike and thanks for the memories...........

He has a tin pot acoustic thats like playing barbed wire He plays an electric Fender Squier Strat but has sent a note to santa for a playable acoustic. It'll keep his grubby mits off me bleedin hammond B3 when I'm not around !!! Thanks Mike
  12. Update Slot filled. Welcome Jock the Ripper Thanks to all other interested parties.
  13. Back in Feb/March I stuck up a similar request and got some decent replies, aknowledged these but had to put the project into hibernation due to work commitments. Sorry for repeating. Project to get the band going again has started and line up is almost fulfilled. Got 4 on horns, 2 on keyboards, bass guitar, rythmn guitar, trying out drummers, trying out singers of which we land on 4 or 5 and finally also need to fill the lead guitar slot. I reckon it will be a 14 or 15 piece line up when nailed. Big sound doing soul and R&B covers in a hard hitting bass and drum driven way. This band will not play like pussies............ Need an experienced guitar player with own transport and decent gear happy to play a role in such a big set up. Practise every Thursday out at Kintore. Get on YouTube for Vintage Trouble and take in the guitar on " A Little Help From My Friends" and " Nobody Told me " . Gigging is in the long term. There will be many months of getting the line up right and then weekly rehearsing to get to the pro standard of the last band. Drop me a mail via www.souledasylum.co.uk Thanks Mike
