In 2006 Steve Grant and I worked with Suzi, we wrote, played and produced some songs on her album "Back To The Drive".
Paddy Goes To Holyhead
In the beginning of the 80's I produced some demos for a NWOBHM band called Weapon who were fronted by Danny Hynes.
Later in the mid 80's he formed a new band called Paddy Goes To Holyhead. I would get up and play with them occasionally. This lead to me producing and playing on some songs including a single. We went into London Bridge Studios record The Green Green Grass of Home and I was invited to join the band on a more permanent basis, which I did until the Sweet went back on the road full time.
The Party Rockers SHA-BOOM covered SWEET's 'Fox On The Run' for their 1988 debut 'R.O.C.K'. I was also on hand
to add some authenticity acting as producer and I also tackled production for the follow up, 1990's 'Let's Party',
which included Ole Evenrude on backing vocals.
Ole Evenrude's debut album This Ole Town was produced by Geoff Downes. Mick Tucker & I did the backing vocals
along with Stevie Lange who of course appeared on the Sweets Level Headed Album. Mick also plays the drums
on this album.
Mick Tucker, Mal McNulty and Myself worked on the Idolator album at the same time as we were recording the bonus
tracks for Live at the Marquee. Pete Wingfield who plays keyboards had worked with me many years before on Lady Starlight
my first solo single.
This was recorded in 1987 to support a charity in aid of babies and children of the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, UK.
I appear on vocals on this single along with Noddy Holder, Jimmy Nail, Danny Hynes, Mal McNulty,
Bernie Shaw, Phil Lanzon, Boy George etc.
