Boom Boom update

The book of Brian Smith’s fabulous Sixties Blues photographs – Boom Boom Boom Boom – is pushing along nicely, albeit a little behind schedule! But we’re pleased to be able to show the first page visuals at last.  Brian has also had some of his photographs selected for a really interesting new documentary on some of the Blues sidemen who perhaps never got the recognition of some of their peers.  Titled Sidemen : The Long Road To Glory, you can see an exclusive trailer for the project at the producer’s official Vimeo site. Universal have also requested a dozen of his images for an upcoming Chess blues box set. If you haven’t yet checked the book out, you can read the full details on the site.

Graham Bonnet on tour

We had a couple of meetings last week with Graham’s manager as the group are currently on tour in the UK, and finalised plans for the book editions. We will send out a newsletter next week to subscribers with all the details (you can get on the exclusive mailing list by visiting the book page on the site). I’ve never been to a rock show in Skegness before, and apparently it is 49 years since Graham last played there as a teenager!  We then took in a more regular concert in Leeds, and watched the band sound-checking beforehand, where this picture was taken. There is a review of the shows and more pictures on the Deep Purple site here.
