Glastonbury Festival 2015

Glastonbury Festival 2015 is a Complete Sell Out

About 15,000 pre-sale tickets for this year's Glastonbury Festival went on sale earlier this week. The remaining 120,000 went on sale and completely sold out in just on 26 minutes, people were more than happy to pay £225 for each ticket. Even though the line up will not be announced until next year. There are very strong rumours that both bands Fleetwood Mac and Queen could be amongst the act's that will be appearing at Worthy Farm in 2015. Glastonbury Festival is by far the best festival around. They always have quality acts for the family to enjoy.

Converse All Stars

We all have our own favourite footwear that we like to play drums in. I have been wearing Converse Boots since the early 80's when a good drumming friend of mine Gary Dwyer who played for The Teardrop Explodes bought a couple of pairs back from a tour of the USA. I liked them so much I went out and bought myself a pair, we have all seen the photos of the likes of Kurt Cobain who liked his Converse Shoes/Boots so much that Kurt would write Endorsed on the white rubber. I remember seeing The Ramones and more recently the great Dave Grohl wearing Converse Boots. In fact they are worn by lots of people who play in bands.

Mick Winder

I met Mick way back in the early 80's in Liverpool. He was working with one of Liverpools finest bands the Icicle Works. Mick was looking after the Backline equipment and doing the sound for the band. Mick went on to become Chris Sharrock's personal drum tech. Who ever Chris would play for Mick was always there setting up Chris's drum kit and keeping a watchfull eye on the equipment throughout the gig's or in the recording studios. If drum skins needed changing and problems would arise with Chris's drum kit Mick was always on hand to sort it out. I am a fim believer in the fact that if you do a great job for who ever your working with then your name will be passed around to musicians and bands on the Live music circuit. Mick at this moment in time is currently on a World Tour with Robbie Williams and his band.
