Corky Laing is returning the play in the UK this year!
Legendary Mountain drummer, Laurence “Corky” Laing a native of Montreal Canada, is said to be one of the hardest hitting drummers in the history of rock music!
Mountain forged a style and sound that changed the face of rock music and the powerhouse double-drummer along with with Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi and Steve Knight gave us “Mississippi Queen”, “Nantucket Sleighride”, “Theme from an Imaginary Western” and many more; all standing the test of time.
Although best known as a long-time member of the pioneering American hard rock band Mountain and for West, Bruce & Laing, during the past few years Corky has been living and thriving in the fast lane. In between his one man show, playing with his band, lecturing at Universities around the world, Playing God: The Rock Opera and doing some producing, Corky is now in the midst of writing the first part of his memoir. Playing God: The Rock Opera is a critically acclaimed collaboration with two Finnish philosophers and amazing musicians from around the world and will be performed/filmed this year on the 8th & 9th April at the Cultural Arena Gloria in Helsinki, Finland.

Having played on over a hundred recordings and been a major contributing artist on numerous singles, live albums and 23 or so studio albums, performed by the man who co-wrote many of the hits, this tour is all about playing the Mountain songs like they were originally written, like they were heard on the original recordings, with some West, Bruce & Laing and also Cream thrown in for good measure. Jack Bruce was a long time collaborator with Corky, in West Bruce and Laing.
