The Flowerpot, Derby.

Stan Webb's dynamic guitar style and huge stage presence have made Chicken Shack a firm favourite with rock and blues fans everywhere. It's 45 years since Stan Webb started Chicken Shack and upped stick to Hamburg and the famous Star Club. Barely 2 years later he was back in the UK and riding the top of the charts with ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’ with the band’s new vocalist Christine Perfect (aka McVie), later of Fleetwood Mac ‘Rumours’ era. Their first two albums "40 Blue Fingers Freshly Packed And Ready To Go" and "O.K. Ken" stormed into the top twenty in the late sixties, whilst the singles "When The Train Comes Back" and "Tears In The Wind” spent a combined 19 weeks in the top thirty.
Throughout an acclaimed career Stan Webb has played and recorded with the very best, including, Stevie Wonder, Howling Wolf, Taj Mahal, Canned Heat and Peter Green. Stan Webb and Chicken Shack show no sign of slowing down, continually touring the U.K. and Europe to packed houses and rave reviews.
Eric Clapton saw Stan at his very best. With the upswing in blues popularity in the early 90's Chicken Shack was once again in vogue, a situation that has happily stretched over the last two decades. With a fine new album, and a high profile, it's an ironic Stan who concludes; "In a way I think I've come the long way round. I've been right out there all the way, but now I've come back (along with the resurgence of the blues). It's like poetic justice, if you like. Eventually it all comes back to you”.
British Blues really doesn’t get better than this!
