GOOD OLD BOYS
Eel Pie Club, Twickenham.
An evening with The Good Old Boys is an exhilerating experience and one not to be missed. Originally formed as a vehicle to play live Rock and R&B whenever the members were free from touring with their own bands, The Good Old Boys are Nick Simper, Peter Parks, Alan Barratt, Simon Bishop and Richard Hudson, and they have played with, or alongside, Deep Purple, Johnny Kidd and The Pirates, BB King, Paul McCartney, Simple Minds, Cliff Bennett and the Rebelrousers, The Tremelos and The Strawbs. Their 2009 live album was recorded at an all day Deep Purple convention in 2008 to mark the 40th anniversary of the first Deep Purple performance in Denmark in April 1968. The coming together of five great musicians on one stage cannot fail to excite!
