Andy Powell on RENAISSANCE

Yesterday there was the news on two archive recordings by RENAISSANCE being released soon. One of the these features WISHBONE ASH mainstay Andy Powell. DME asked Andy about that, and that’s what the guitarist has to say:

“RENAISSANCE were a band that we worked with a lot on the road both in Europe and America. We shared the same management. The session I played was for the appropriately named “Ashes Are Burning.” The band had the idea of adding me playing a guitar solo at the end of the piece and it was just the perfect vehicle for my guitar style – a big rock ballad with Annie [Haslam]‘s voice to the fore. I’m thinking we were in De Lane Studios in Wembley where WISHBONE had done a lot of work. The session went very quickly – just one or two takes, if my memory serves me well, and very enjoyable it was too.”
