02.11.01 - Great news! I've been told that
Micky Waller is playing with some friends at
The Eel Pie Club, at The Cabbage Patch Pub, 67 London Road,
Twickenham, Middx. On DECEMBER 4th 2002 8.00/8.30pm. This is the text of
the whole info I've got:
Rod Stewart and Jeff Beck drummer plays 'One off' show at The Eel Pie Club,
at The Cabbage Patch Pub, London Road, Twickenham on: Wednesday Dec 4th
2002 / 8.30pm.
Waller is probably most famous for his excellent drumming performances
with The Jeff Beck Group and Rod Stewart's solo albums during the 1960s
- not least including chart topping reccords: 'Maggie May', 'You Wear It
Well' and 'Hi Ho Silver Lining'.
can also boast one of the most impressive lists of artists that he has
played with such as: The Rolling Stones (Chatham Town Hall 1964), Marty
Wilde, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Georgie Fame, Alan Price and a rare USA
performance with Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck playing bass guitar!
Wednesday December 4th Mickey is to play a 'One Off' show at Twickenham's
Eel Pie Club, the same venue that surprised an unsuspecting audience with
a guest appearance from Ronnie Wood, not so long ago.
show is not aimed at being a celebrity showcase but a unique opportunity
to join an evening of the Rock 'n Roll / Rhythm 'n Blues that planted so
many of the great aforementioned artists so firmly at the top of today's
Rock 'n Roll family tree.
band currently features his Drummer friend Mark Freeman on Rhythm Guitar,
- Noel Brown (See Graham Parker's earlyy Rumour albums) on Lead & Slide
guitar, Keith Grant of The Legendary Downliner Sect plays Bass Guitar and
Brian Short (From Paul Kossof- former free guitarist's original band 'The
Black Cat Bones') on Keyboards. Other, unnamed guests are also expected
not miss this great opportunity to join what is likely to be a 'One Off'
and memorable evening.

for rock community. Paul Samson, leader of Samson, died yesterday, ill

to scan all the albums and photos I have somewhere. So, I'm going to put
these pages available from now on. You can find the list of new, "almost-finished"
pages in the main index, under the "New pages"
link. I hope you'll enjoy them.

time to work in my site again. So, even still at a slow pace, I'm going
to be reflecting lots of changes that I've been accumulating for the last
15 months. Are you ready? :)

Again, a new year in The Musicians' Olympus. Sadly, I'll still keep "frozen"
my site for several months, due to work commitments, but I'll keep on working
on the background, and as soon as I can, I'll be able to reflect all the
new info I'm collecting.
