HOUSE WILL BE FULL

Now it definitely will be, the Frankie Miller Tribute Night will take place on September 7th, the very same day when the tribute album, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed but Most Definitely Blues!” is to be out. The latest addition to the artists contributing a song for the CD is Fish, who chose to sing “Caledonia” featuring Brian Robertson of THIN LIZZY fame, but the list may still grow beyond 51 confirmed acts.

And there are those confirmed to perform on the September evening alongside a bunch of young Scottish band, Mary Kiani Sunshine Choir and THE FRANKIE MILLER BAND & FULL HOUSE consisting of Robbo Robertson on guitar, Chrissie Stewart on bass, Ted McKenna on drums and, if he’s available, Paul Carrack on keyboards:

LOOK THERE, OVER HORIZON

Hard to believe but it’s only now that RAINBOW recieves a book on it. It was reported before yet now Helter Skelter Publishing announce the release date: June 24th.

Entitled “Rainbow Rising: The Story of Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow”, the book by Roy Davies will be out as a limited edition hardback and a regular soft cover item. Description isn’t so teasing, going like,
“Blackmore led rock behemoths Deep Purple to international, multi-platinum, mega-stardom. He quite in ’75, to form Rainbow, one of the great live bands, with Ronnie James Dio and enjoyed a string of acclaimed albums and hit singles, including “All Night Long” and “Since You’ve Been Gone” before the egos of the key players caused the whole thing to implode.

More important fact is that interviewed for the book was everybody involved – minus, sure, great late Cozy Powell, who, nevertheless, made it to the photo section of this marvellous 256-page thing.

Check the review in soon-to-be-launched Books Reviews section of the site.
