I APPEARED WITH BAD NEWS AT THE HAMMERSMITH ODEON

Bad News performed at Hammersmith Odeon supporting Iron Maiden. Bad News had two extra guitarists that night, Brian May and JP. During their set there was a guitar duel between Vim Fuego (Adrian Edmonson), Brian and myself. During my bit, my amp mysteriously cut in and out but it just added to the comedy of the send up.

ON THIS DAY… 24 JUL 1967
'Little Games' by The Yardbirds was released

'Little Games' by the Yardbirds was also released on this day in 1967. The music featured is the Screen Gem's demo of 'No Excess Baggage' recorded by the band on this album.
In December 2003, the first Riffathon took place in Guildford and was won by Tommy Hubbard. It was a charity event for the ABC Trust.
In 2005, the second Riffathon was to take place at Hammersmith Palais. Brian May of Queen, the guitarist of The Darkness, Dan Hawkins and I had been asked to judge a number of guitarists as they played their riffs. I thought they might play original material, but the contestants performed versions of songs by Led Zeppelin and Queen. Martin Tomkins was the eventual winner that night.
