SLADE’s Don Powell Presents THE DREAMERS’ Debut

Don Powell might have been relieved from songwriting duties when Noddy Holder and Jim Lea’s numbers proved the most successful, yet it’s impossible to imagine SLADE’s cuts without his thunderously nuanced beat. After the drummer’s aforementioned colleagues had left the fold, he stuck by the other remaining band member Dave Hill’s side and carried on under the same collective name – first, with the appendix of “II”; later, without it – although Powell has always felt constrained by his main team’s endeavors. Don not only joined his glam-rock friends Suzi Quatro and Andy Scott in QSP and formed his own OCCASIONAL FLAMES but also, once fired from SLADE in 2020, came up with DON & THE DREAMERS whose debut platter “It’s Never Too Late To Be A Rockstar” will be out on March 23rd.

Having lived in Denmark for nigh on two decades now, the veteran fleshed out his group with Danish and Norwegian players to lay down a dozen of solid classics – mostly rock ‘n’ roll and blues staples, like “I Hear You Knocking” and “Little Red Rooster” – yet there’s a take on George Harrison’s “For You Blue” and, of course, a fresh reading of SLADE’s own “Far Far Away”: all of it can be previewed now and listened to in full when the album is out.
