[Oct 14, 2012] Terry Reid (Aberdeen)


Recommended Posts

Quality transcends generations. The celebrity endorsements Terry Reid has received from those at the cutting edge of Rock and Roll has continued for decades and confirms his enduring talent and position as one of the UK’s finest performers ever.

Famously, Jimmy Page identified him as his first choice to front Led Zepplin and it was Terry himself who suggested Robert Plant as a suitable substitute. Aretha Franklin was also a fan, stating in 1968 that there are only 3 things happening in England; The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Terry Reid”. More recently, Jack White and his Raconteurs covered Terry’s Rich Kid Blues and DJ Shadow had Terry guest on the hauntingly beautiful Listen from his new Reconstructed album. The respect Terry receives from his peers and collaborators is tangible.

Despite this, fame and fortune has somehow eluded Terry but this only enhances the intrigue. How could a man so immensely talented, a man so steeped in Rock history, from his breathtaking appearance at Glastonbury in 1970 to numerous film soundtracks, to albums filled with poignant beauty and heartfelt soul, be anything other than a household name?

Frankly, to anyone who has seen Terry perform or listened to any of his tremendous back catalogue, it is one of life’s greatest mysteries.

Terry returns to Aberdeen for an intimate show at Drummonds. If you make one show this year, it must be this. Terry Reid is truly a Rock and Roll legend and the opportunity to see talent of this magnitude does not come along often. Join him at Drummonds on Sunday 14th October from 7pm.

Tickets are available at One Up so pop down, get your Terry ticket and buy a CD or two to help out that finest of Aberdeen musical institutions.
