  • Opening night.....Belgium 
It feels like yesterday when I was in America and Steve Hackett asked if I’d like to join him on the Genesis Revisited tour. 
I got sent the tracks and slowly started to work my way through them at every opportunity I had. The Selling England by the Pound album was one I used to listen to constantly as a kid which was kind of surreal relearning it but a few years on, appreciating Phil’s work massively as I have done since his Brand X days 
I never auditioned for the tour which is extremely flattering but in a strange way it put more pressure on me in rehearsals to make sure I was on top of things, there’s shedding in my rehearsal room learning to a track and then there’s playing with the band, both are very very different when it comes to hearing and playing your parts, taking risks, phrasing’s  listening and hearing different things etc 
For this tour I’ve been asked to ‘be myself’ but it’s absolutely impossible to play some of these tracks without paying my huge respect to some of the incredible drummers and their iconic drum parts that have sat on this throne, Phil, Gary, John etc. They are all amazing and once again on another tour, I’ll do my best to be them all in my own way

And so it’s opening night here in Belgium, new people, new music, new tech, new tour, new fans. I’ve had a blast educating myself, huge nerves aside, it’s 2 hours till the concert starts, I’m off to relax before I get stuck into these amazing tunes. I hope you enjoy the shows as much as I’ve enjoyed preparing for them 
A huge thank you to :

  • first track off the incredible new @heyemmet trio album “Dirty in Detroit” with @poole.kyle and @rasbessi — would absolutely recommend you check it out, been catching this group live for a few years now (saw them last Tuesday at Dizzys with @philip_norris) and they are unbelievable 💯

  • Through thick and thin my @vaterdrumsticks never let me down 😆

These sticks are still going strong!

How long do your sticks usually last?

Hace unos días ví este video del gran @orestesgomez y decidí aprendérmelo.
Increíble fraseo, noción del tiempo y presición es lo que tiene este hombre.

  • It takes forever to setup but no time at all to rip down. My drum covers are going to have wait a bit longer but still pushing forward towards recording some new music with @serialkillerdinnerparty.
