Welcome 2016
Thank you everybody, for all your support during 2015 and the encouraging comments
about the re-formation of "Lucifer's Friend"
2015  kicked off with the first Lucifer's Friend rehearsals in over 20 years.
It was like the "Old Times" but with a lot more breaks in-between..:-))
2015  also saw me on a 3 week tour in Russia, Czech Republic and Ukraine with the

Living Legends of Rock, Graham Bonnet, Dan McKafferty and myself

supported by a Symphony Orchestra.
This tour was a fantastic experience, not only for visiting parts of Russia I had never been to before,
but playing with an orchestra and great vocalists like Graham and Dan.
On returning from Russia it was straight to Hamburg for the first Lucifer's Friend concert
in over 20 years.
A couple of rehearsals and the first show at Hamburg's Down Town Blues Club on 31. May
Electric atmosphere with so many familiar faces in the audience...
What a fantastic night!
Although....Highlight of the LF shows was of course Sweden Rock Festival in June,
which was recorded  for a live CD
 On the 1st of July the traditional "July Morning" concert at sunrise took place in Kamen Briag,
for the 9th year running.
We again had a great  sunrise this year and an incredible audience!!
The whole show was televised live again, by Bulgarian national TV
After "July Morning" I was a speaking guest at the launch of the Hepatitis C campaign  in Sofia,
 Bulgaria, having been invited twice during 2015. This has made me very proud indeed.
The latter half of 2015 was spent editing the Lucifer's Friend recording of Live @ Sweden Rock 2015,
 ready for a 8. January release.
Unfortunately the video of the show was unusable due to quality of the recording and
some technical faults with the cameras.
  We felt it was unfair to our fans to release a low quality DVD, hence we settled for a good audio CD
 .. AND ..
.. we have also embarked on writing new material for a brand new LF studio CD, released later in 2016 !
In January 2016 we are off to play Japan, as very special guests to Uriah Heep.
Please remember that
The Living Legends of Rock  -  Graham Bonnet, John Lawton & Dan McCafferty -
concerts due on October 14. & 16. 2015
have been re-scheduled  for 22. & 24. March 2016

Watch this space;-)
                                 See ya all soon... .
